This tiny kitchen makes a great statement. The owner was gutsy and went with this beautiful shade of green. The red tiled floor makes it all pop. Custom cabinets were able to utilze every inch of space.

Hi- I believe it was a counter depth fridge. Typically for normal priced appliances- counter depth just means they don't stick out 33-36" like older style refrigerators do. I always recommend counter depth- it just works better in almost all cases (and you don't lose food in the way back!).

Hi- I'm sorry- I don't have any info on the fan. The client probably added the decorative touches to the hanging chains herself. Thanks-

Hi- I am not sure which brand this particular sink is. I did the cabinet design when with Heritage Woodworks- not as a freelance client- so I was only involved in cabinets and color selection. Shaws is a famous brand that does beautiful farmhouse sinks ("Product.Sinks$S$Shaws Sinks$P$$C$V" ). I have had clients have good luck on some websites like and - so you may want to check with those sites as well. Good luck! Amy

is there a vent?

Hi- I did not spec the appliances for this job, so I don't know if the microwave is just re-circulating or actually venting. Since the sink wall is exterior- it's likely it's vented.

Kathy from Connecticut Appliance
To determine if your over the range microwave is vented outside, please take a look inside the cabinet above to see if there is a vent. Also,it could be rear vented, where you would see a vent behind the microwave outside the house. This looks like Ge model# JVM1850 (vented model) or JNM1851 (non-vented model). The model number is located inside this microwave, and is another way to tell if it's vented model or not.

Hi- The paint is Hearts of Palm by Sherwin Williams SW6415. It may not look like it when you pull up a sample online- but color doesn't translate well on computer screens. Good luck- Amy

Hi. I don't know the floor choice- just that it's tile. I helped with the cabinet pla, paint color and countertop to go with the client's tile. Sorry I couldn't help!

Is it ok to put a microwave above a gas range?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Amy Birdsong
Hi- It is ok to put a microwave above a gas range- just follow the manufacturer's spacing requirements. I usually try to find another home for the microwave as I don't like having to reach over a stove to get to it and like making a hood a design focal point, but sometimes it's the best use of the space or a client really wants it there.

Hi- I'm sorry- I don't have a picture of that angle. There are just basic upper and lower cabinets to the left of the fridge with the fridge having a deep cabinet above. The kitchen is about 7' by 8'. Thanks- Amy

Hi- the kitchen did turn out so well! I actually don't know what the tile is. The client came in with it and wanted to use it- so we chose the cabinet color and countertop to work with her tile. The countertop is Silestone in Olive. Daltile does a similar subway tile and their Natural Hues line has a color called Kiwi that looks similar online (and comes in the 3x6 subway size)- but you'd need to confirm in person or with a sample. You should pick up the Sherwin Williams paint sample, a Silestone Olive sample and take them to your local tile place- they should be able to help you find something similar. The green tile didn't match the counter or cabinet color exactly- but they all worked harmoniously together. I think the olive color in the counters helps temper the brightness. I love how bold the client went- it turned out to be a little jewel box that makes you smile when you see it. Good luck with your project!

Hi! It's Hearts of Palm by Sherwin Williams SW6415. We were worried it would be too bright- but it turned out really well in the space and looks fantastic with the reddish tile floor and white appliances.

Amy Renea added this to Beef Up Your Ranch Kitchen
Perhaps you would like to add a little life to your kitchen. Why not try a bold paint color on your cabinets? This yellow-green really gives this kitchen an injection of personality.
