“I want to thank all of you involved in the project at my house. I find myself sending you thanks for many reasons: the high quality of workmanship, the courtesy and goodwill of all involved, and the high degree of personal regard allowed me, so I could plan and continue my own life around your timetable. Thank you, most especially to the Designer and Lead Carpenter for your good communication skills and flexible spirits! Thanks, again, to all involved. And as before, I have no hesitation in recommending Powell’s as a business of high standards and talented employees.”

Kitchen Design with Addition – Corvallis, Oregon

This extensive kitchen remodel added 75 square feet and relocated all three legs of the work triangle: sink, refrigerator, and range. Previously, the work triangle used three of the four walls of the kitchen and consumed basically the entire floor area. To accommodate the need for traffic flow through the space, the upper corner of the kitchen was made into a pantry/baking center and the remaining space was used to create the work triangle.

To increase storage and ease of access, several unique products were used. A blind corner optimizer was installed in each corner cabinet. These accessories pull out and then pivot to allow access to the “blind” part of the cabinet. Also, all of the lower cabinets have roll-out shelves. The cabinet above the fridge is equipped with flipper doors that fold back into the cabinet and a cable jack, so that the TV can be seen from the dining room, when desired.

The simple door and pull styles and painted cabinets match the Cape Cod charm of the rest of the home. To add visual interest, some of the cabinets have glass doors with divided lites that match the windows. Notice the beautiful pine countertops! This unique feature really adds a New England appeal to the space. The look of the cabinets was kept simple: for example, quarter panel doors with a center mullion and a plain, 4×4 white tile backsplash. However, small flourishes such as crown molding throughout the room and staggered cabinet heights highlight the design as a whole.
