better flow - the kitchen traditional-kitchen

better flow - the kitchen

This project involved reworking the entire first floor of an existing two story home. Dark spaces interrupted by a confusing and awkward circulation pattern have been replaced with light filled spaces and a rational path from room to room. It's a lesson that quality of space trumps quantity of space every time.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Scheer & Co. added this to Kitchen Storage Solutions Hide and Keep
Full-height rollout cabinets give you even more storage opportunities — and, in some cases, can serve as a pantry of sorts, if space is limited. Casters can provide additional support when needed.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Design an Easy-Clean Kitchen
Rollout pantry. It is easier to put the groceries away quickly if you don't have to fumble around in deep cabinets trying to see what you have and where everything should go, or pulling out a lot of smaller items so you can put bigger items in behind them. And when it comes time to wipe down the shelves in your cabinets, these are easier to reach. If you're getting ready to remodel your kitchen or designing a new one, I hope some of these tips help you create a kitchen that will be a joy to use and a cinch to clean. Tell us: What are your best design tips for making a kitchen easier to clean? More:Design an Easy-Clean Bathroom
