it is but a cottage - the kitchen

The kitchen for this cottage home is quite small, just 10' square. So to maximize the amount of cabinetry space we provided clerestory windows in the vaulted space and a small island for food prep and clean up. A glass pocket door separates the kitchen from the mudroom.

This project was featured in Womans Day as well as in Not So Big Remodeling by Sarah Susanka and Marc Vassallo.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lindsey M. Roberts added this to Clerestory Windows Are Tops at Ushering in Light
Without any windows, this kitchen would be dark, despite the white cupboards. If regular windows were added, cabinet space would be lost. Clerestory windows are the perfect solution here.And when windows such as these are operable, they can also save cooling costs in the summer by allowing hot air to rise and escape.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Clerestory
Clerestory windows aren't just for contemporary styling. In fact, placing a window or clerestory windows up high in a wall can provide extra light and a view no matter what style the house is. Typically in more traditional styles, the windows are less ribbons of glass and more individual windows.

I like the clerestory windows because it doesn't get too much lighting into the room, but I don't like how it's higher up because sometimes I want to be able to see more out of the window than I usually can.
