Montlake craftsman kitchen
 

Montlake

This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

Pros and Cons of this stove placement - We are planning on renovating our current kitchen and due to some limitations we are considering an arrangement exactly like this one. I mean exactly! I am really stuck on the stove beside a doorway though and wondering whether you (or anyone!) had any comments now that you have lived with it for a while. Are there any issues? Anything you'd change? Seeing this design, with the small wall to separate the door and stove makes me feel better but I still wonder whether we should go back to square one.... Thank you !!!

First, let me remark on the inspiration photo. Bosworth Hoedemaker, what an ingenious, thoughtful and elegant way to use the open shelving as a way to integrate the hood and to connect and define the depth of the wall separating the door. Outstanding!!!

For you mmonika, replicate that type of detail and you should be fine. The partial depth wall appears to give good definition to the stove area and a bit of protection. With the out swing door, I don't see much danger of hitting a pot handle. Concern about an open door allowing wind to blow out a burner is, well, overblown.

I prefer your first drawing. Who doesn't like larger windows?!?

Your chimney wall seems woefully ignored and is under utilized. Box out the chimney. When facing the chimney, start on its left and take it over the couple of feet to the right to the wall with the windows. Clad this "box out" with fake (fixed) doors so it looks like functional cabinets. From the left side of the "box out" to the doorway of the living room make a real cabinet run. This gives balance to your kitchen and increases storage.

Good luck!!!

If the red section on the 9-9.5' is a window, what is the 31" opening adjacent to it?

You also do not appear to have room for that 4 x 4 island you are showing. You have only about 26" of space from the sink run countertop to the island countertop where 36" would be a bare minimum. Cannot determine the clearance from the refrigerator to that proposed island countertop.

How many cooks in this kitchen?

Please: What are those cabinets? - That is a wonderful kitchen! What are the cabinets? Were they custom or semi-custom? Or "made from scratch"? Do you have pictures of the rest of the kitchen? Thank you!

These cabinets were custom-built. Unfortunately, we do not have record of the manufacturer.

Why do people like open shelves? The dishes get grimy and covered with cooking oils and dust. I like to display on top of the cabinets, taking things down to wash every six months!

I love the look when they are done right like this, and when the person is a neatnik, but I would NEVER be able to keep them up! Everything would be totally gross in a world where I had open shelves!

The hardware on these cabinets rocks though. I wouldn't have noticed it if you wouldn't have posted this ;)

I like the whole look of this kitchen, I just know the open shelving is not practical for everyday use. Makes a great photo, though, and I like the hardware, too!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Non-Invasive Kitchen Makovers
Add an extra layer of shelving along the top perimeter of the kitchen. This example shows how this can provide not only extra storage capacity, but opportunity to display beautiful kitchenware. Just remember to put the lesser-used items such as serving platters and pitchers out of reach, if the extra shelf is high, and keep the everyday items at arm's reach.
Kit Pollard added this to 15 Popular Design Trends on Houzz
6. Open shelving. More storage, and more ways to incorporate it into design. Open shelves have been hot for a few years now, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Kit Pollard added this to Decorating with Dishes
These shelves are both practical and look great.
They are also great for softening hard kitchen floors and hiding stains. Just make sure to air them out and/or have them cleaned every so often to release some of the kitchen smells they may be harboring.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Creative Ideas for Decorating Above the Cabinets
Even though this display area isn't above cabinets, it's a wonderful example of how an ironstone or creamware collection would look displayed there. I love the addition of the turkeys. They could be chickens, but since Thanksgiving is only a week away, let's call 'em turkeys for today.
The same idea is at work in this popular kitchen. We also loved the collection of simple white ceramics juxtaposed with the warm colors of the patterned rugs.
Add a extra storage space by choosing an open shelving approach in the kitchen. Use the shelving to display your favorite collected monochromatic dinnerware pieces.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to House Planning: How to Set Up Your Kitchen
1. Start with the basics: silverware. I like to put silverware in an upper small drawer close to the dishwasher, if you don't have a dishwasher then close to the sink, if you don't have a sink...well, this ideabook may not interest you :) It's all about ease of clean up and putting items away when it comes to silverware...if there's an island, then I sometimes put the silverware drawer in the island, but still a pivot away from the dishwasher or main sink. If you're dealing with an existing kitchen, run out and buy a silverware organizer... and I'm a big fan of containers that look nice even inside closed drawers — they'll make you happy when you open them. The most frustrating thing about poorly designed kitchens (or anything for that matter) is that you spend time searching for things in vain). Here, the obvious spot is the small drawer to right of the sink.

Well-worn Oriental rugs underfoot add warm color and a cozy texture to this efficient kitchen.
