What Houzz contributors are saying:

Like many kitchens born in the Victorian age, this one was crafted in a narrow galley shape, and likely started life as more of a utilitarian scullery than a serene family gathering space.DeWitt played with color and scale to make it reflect the modern family who lives here now. The cabinets are Ikea boxes with custom doors. “They wanted Shaker-style cabinets,” he says. “We messed around with the scale of the paneling and height to make it interesting.” Admitting he was inspired by a line of English cabinetry, he adds: “We wanted to do what many good British designers do: knock it out of the park while giving you a gentle elbow in the ribs.”Usually, such a narrow kitchen rules out an island. “Clients with these kinds of kitchens always look at me with hopeful eyes and ask for an island,” says DeWitt. “Sometimes it’s not possible, but here we had a slim one crafted at a restaurant supply store. The room isn’t wide enough for a pullout trash bin under the sink, but we put two red waste bins I found at a custodial supply shop underneath.”Cabinet paint: Oval Room Blue, Farrow & Ball
Mitchell Parker added this to The 20 Most Popular Kitchens on Houzz
8. Pushing Boundaries in a San Francisco VictorianPlayful color and scale create a modern interpretation of a turn-of-the-20th-century kitchen. Cool feature: Extensive Shaker-style cabinets painted Farrow & Ball’s Oval Room Blue add big personality to the narrow space.See more of this kitchen
