Lu-In+Dave: Squirrel Hill, PA Contemporary Kitchen

The couple's new kitchen, finished in 2011, makes wise use of a narrow space. The volume of an open cabinet maintains a spacious feel, with plate racks keeping daily wares in arm's reach.

Design: Architect Mary Cerrone

Sporting a bright-yellow finish, custom maple cabinets were treated with aniline dye. This process allows the natural grain of the wood to come through, lending subtle texture and an air of warmth to the space. For the room's color inspiration, Dave and Lu-in turned to the flooring "which explodes with color," she exclaims.

Flooring: Forbo Marmoleum in Asian Tiger

It looks like the range hood is over sized. Did you use a 36"range hood with a 30" range?

It looks to me like it's the same size as the range -- follow the edge straight down with your eye and it is more clear.

Look at one of the other photos -- a screen door hangs from the rail, and it retracts into a slot between the cabinets and the wall!

This charming kitchen features a nice mix of mellow and bold yellows. The small bits of red and blue add drama without going overboard on color.

Anne Colby added this to Kitchen Confidential: 10 Ways to Promote Aging in Place
3. Keep the sink close to the stove. As we age, it’s harder on our arms and backs to carry big pots full of water to and from the cooktop. If any spills on the way, it becomes a slipping hazard.You may be tempted to put your sink next to your stove, but be sure to leave workspace in between. It defeats the purpose if you’re forced to hold a pot longer than is comfortable because you can’t find a place to set it down.
