Mt. BakerCraftsman Kitchen, Seattle

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.

      Naturally, you’ll want to consider how your windows open and ensure that they remain operational. This arrangement works with many shelves, or one, at a lower height for everyday items and a higher height for special pieces, such as the good china.The look is especially effective when your kitchen view is of a neighboring building. You won’t feel too boxed in, but the emphasis will be drawn away from the wall beyond.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      A mix of charm seen in architectural details, accessories, open shelving, mixed with modern hardware and elegant wall color.

      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!
