Small Contemporary KitchenContemporary Kitchen, Portland

A small kitchen needs to be designed by being cognizant of every kitchen item the client owns and when the kitchen is only 90 sq ft, this can be quite challenging!
The original kitchen housed a double wall oven, cook top and 36” range. Since space was at a minimum and the client’s list for appliances was extensive (range, warming drawer, wine refrigerator, dishwasher, ref) we had to think quite creatively. We also had 2 doors to contend with and 2 focal points to create!
The first step was to move to a 27” wide refrigerator, this gained 9 additional inches of working counter space between the sink and refrigerator. Opting for a 24” wide single bowl sink over the original 30” netted a total of 15” for a tray divider cabinet and 39” of working counter space between the sink and the refrigerator!
The new 30” range was positioned as star on the same wall as the existing cook top. Since the space did not lend us the ability to balance the cabinet doors sizes on both sides of the hood, we chose a door style that focused your eyes not on the overall size of the door, but on the vertical detailing. The subtle grain of the Rift White Oak further minimized the odd sizing of the doors.
To help create a visual width of the room – we used a glass tile set in a horizontal pattern. Our ultimate goal for this space was to create a calm and flowing space, all appliances are fully integrated to enhance the visual flow to the room.

    It is cork - glue down. This specific product is no longer available, but you should be able to find something similar at a flooring store in your area. Best wishes.

    These doors are Rift-Sawn White Oak Veneer with 1/4" solid wood banding. The grain is matched vertically. I hope this helps.

      How will this work in your kitchen? 1. Think about how well you get around in your current kitchen. What frustrates you in your kitchen? What causes problems while you're working? What could be added or removed with few changes and a limited budget? Thinking about what bothers you the most will help you figure out how to organize your kitchen workspaces within the triangle format. At the time the kitchen work triangle was created there was no space for decoration or entertaining in the kitchen. Now, kitchens are much larger. They've become the hub of the home and often share space with dining and living rooms for easy entertaining. If you're redesigning a kitchen, odds are you'll need to take entertaining, eating and doing homework into account. By keeping your main cooking areas confined to one part of the kitchen, you'll be able to make use of other spaces without any conflicts.
