An Elegantly Functional Kitchen in DurhamTransitional Kitchen, Raleigh

Maximizing the functionality of this space, and coordinating the new kitchen with the beautiful remodel completed previously by the client were the two most important aspects of this project. The existing spaces are elegantly decorated with an open plan, dark hardwood floors, and natural stone accents. The new, lighter, more open kitchen flows beautifully into the client’s existing dining room space. Satin nickel hardware blends with the stainless steel appliances and matches the satin nickel details throughout the home. The fully integrated refrigerator next to the narrow pull-out pantry cabinet, take up less visual weight than a traditional stainless steel appliance and the two combine to provide fantastic storage. The glass cabinet doors and decorative lighting beautifully highlight the client’s glassware and dishes. Finished with white subway tile, Dreamy Marfil quartz countertops, and a warm natural wood blind; the space warm, inviting, elegant, and extremely functional.

    Such a beautiful kitchen and well designed for a tight space! Could you tell me how wide are the 4-set of drawers beside the sink?

    Thanks so much Brigitte! The drawer fronts/ cabinet opening sizes are approximately 10.875" wide. We minimized the number of cabinets and built as many as possible together to reduce the number of stiles (vertical fixed partitions) in the cabinet face frames to maximize the actual usable cabinet space in the inset cabinetry.

    Thanks for your comment. We needed something more low-profile and contemporary in style to work in that space so we went with the fixture shown in the photo.

    Thanks for your question! We purchased the hardware from Ferguson Enterprises in Carrboro, NC. The manufacturer is Top Knobs.

    Is the fridge a 30"? Thank you.

    Thanks for your question! The refrigerator/ freezer is a 27" wide model. This Subzero unit also comes in a 36" wide option. They do not offer a 30" or 33" in this series.

    Thanks! The ceiling height is 8 feet so the wall cabinets are approximately 42" including the crown. The crown moulding is approximately 2.5 - 3" in height.

    This is such a lovely use of the small space Emma! This shows no kitchen is too small to look fancy.

    Thanks for your question! The main downside is that you have to turn around to put dishes in the dishwasher. That means that likely if the dishes are wet you will end up with some water on the floor. However, in this kitchen, this worked the best for the client.

    Thanks for your question! Sounds like a very cool project! The cabinet above the fridge was sized for a Subzero refrigerator/freezer that they no longer make. Then unit was 27" wide x 80" high. I don't believe they make this model anymore but there may be other manufacturers that make shorter integrated fridges. The open of the cabinet above the fridge was 27" wide (plus the side panels that come down to the floor). The height of the opening for the cabinet above the fridge was 11" (plus the cabinet frame and moulding). We did just do a Dacor that is 84" high with a cabinet above with an 8 foot ceiling for another client. In that case we did a flip-up stay-up door and they use the cabinet for large baking pans and other relatively flat items that don't get use very often. Thanks again!

    Thanks so much for your question. If you have the correct hinges for the application and use the number recommended by the manufacturer for this application you should be fine. I think we have three hinges on the door, one top, one bottom, and one in the middle since the doors are pretty tall.

8. Cabinets to the ceiling. Why stop a foot short when you can take the cabinets all the way up? Even if you can’t easily access what’s in the top cupboards, in a small space it’s still worth having the storage option. Having ceiling-height cabinets also helps visually expand the space.
