Greenlake Kitchen

This older kitchen was badly in need of an update. Small windows, inadequate cabinet and counter space and an awkward entry made for a cramped and dark kitchen. By reorganizing the entry to capture a small back porch and adding windows, we created a much larger and more efficient space. Tall white cabinets provide plenty of storage and keep the room feeling light. As a colorful and playful contrast to the white cabinets, the backsplash was made from reclaimed aluminum city street signs. The owners selected signs from streets with tree names and they were cut into tiles and assembled in a random pattern on the wall.

They sit on a steel angle mounted to the studs. The angle is routed into the bottom of the shelves so it is not visible.

How far apart are the hooks?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In this transition space from outside to in, there is room for everyone in the family to wipe their feet, take off their shoes and organize belongings in the storage bench, in cubbies and on the hooks. Coats, shoes, hats, mittens, leashes and other items don't make it any farther than this vestibule, keeping the house clean and organized. A glass door and two windows let more light into the kitchen.
Spread into the kitchen. This nook is part of a modest-size kitchen but creates a transitional zone from the outside to the inside. If I didn’t need my existing cabinetry in my back hall for food, I would love to change the area to something like this. See the rest of this kitchen, which has a backsplash made of reclaimed street signs
