6. Garbage-and-Recycling Cabinet and Slim RefrigeratorDesigner: Chad Esslinger Design Location: Downers Grove, Illinois Size: 200 square feet (19 square meters)Homeowners’ request. Update a cramped and dated kitchen to include new cabinets, appliances, a custom island that could seat the whole family and a new wall of pantry cabinets. Kitchen island end. A dual garbage-and-recycling cabinet, a utensil drawer and a slim beverage fridge. Other special features. Rich green cabinets (Rainy Afternoon by Benjamin Moore). Knotty alder wood island. Geometric-pattern cement tile on the sink wall. Lighting and cabinet hardware with an antique brass finish. Designer tip. “I tell clients all the time, there is no need for an island and a kitchen table within a few feet of each other,” designer Chad Esslinger says. “Losing the kitchen table and expanding and upgrading the island, as well as adding the wall of pantry cabinets, was a huge game-changer.”“Uh-oh” moment. The homeowner taking the lead on the project “was just a little bit nervous about painting her cabinets a bold color, but once we saw the sample up, it was ‘game on,’” Esslinger says.
