Thrilling is always my experience when one of my projects begins construction or installation. It marks the culmination of exploring a multitude of options, making many decisions, and aligning all the moving targets of a project. This kitchen renovation is no exception.
The smallest kitchen I have ever worked on is coming to completion. While it’s amazing to see all my projects come together, this one is especially gratifying.
Creating a new layout for this particular project was unusually challenging because of the lack of space. In fact, I think it was one of the most challenging floor plans I’ve ever created. But small is big these days, and challenges sometimes produce the most creative solutions!
The main goal of this kitchen renovation was to improve the workflow of the tiny kitchen and add more cabinets and storage. Because the space was so small, removing the wall between the existing kitchen and dining room seemed the obvious solution.
Formal dining rooms are rarely used, and the separation of the spaces frequently impinges on a creating a functional kitchen layout. Openness and an integrated feeling were also a priority for this project.
Because of the space challenges, I explored several plan alternatives to maximize every square inch of space, both horizontally and vertically. I’ll explain the reasoning for each.
