Mt. Baker

Two simple renovations of this 1920’s bungalow transformed the function and flow of two of the most important spaces in a house; the bathroom and the kitchen. The owner wanted to update the spaces to reflect a modern lifestyle while respecting the house. By changing the flow and function of the kitchen it now works for entertaining and multiple chefs while the clean spare finishes keep it fresh and clearly modern. The bathroom was made even smaller than its original form in the renovation of the kitchen so every inch of space had to be used. By unifying the finish on the surfaces, using small modern fixtures, and with a simple glass partition the bathroom is minimalist, elegant, and timeless.

It appears that the windows go below the cabinets. I have this problem and wondered how you protected the view from outside. And the surfaces of the window from splash.

Beautiful design. How much lower are the windows from the countertop? We would like to create a similar look in our home. Thank you for your time and inspiration!

Did you replace double hung windows with a window not designed to open?

I love the kitchen color on the wall. Can you tell me the color and manufacturer? I also have white kitchen cabinets and I think this color will give my kitchen what it needs! Thanks.

Do the windows drop below the countertop? - It looks like the window sill is actually behind the countertop.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to How to Use Your Plates
If your china is display-worth, think about open shelving. Then you can admire your plate and eat (from) it too!
The floating shelf in the middle of the window was positioned so that it doesn't obstruct the beautiful view, but still provides ample storage for pretty dishes. The way the natural light dances across and through them is breathtaking. Imagine waking up to a glass full of sunshine every day!
Becky Harris added this to 10 Steps for Organizing Kitchen Cabinets
More disciplined people who love white...
A mix of charm seen in architectural details, accessories, open shelving, mixed with modern hardware and elegant wall color.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Dutch Doors: Charming and Versatile
Divided doors can easily be converted to function as a single door. A mechanism known as a "quadrant" allows the doors to be latched together so they can be opened or closed as one unit.
People earmarked this photo for its clever solution to a shortage of cabinet space. The floating shelf hangs in front of a window, but it's positioned so that the view remains unobstructed, and plenty of light still shines through.
Cate West Zahl added this to Decorate With Artful Leanings
A small print rests on the countertop of this galley kitchen, adding just a touch of art without taking away from the practicality of the kitchen's open shelves.
