Kitchen Design with Addition
– Corvallis, OR –
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 allow better 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.
MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT
To increase storage and improve 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 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. 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. And notice the beautiful pine countertops! This unique feature really adds a New England appeal to the space.
