Before

zero storage, zero clearance

closet obstacle

Before summary:

  • no pantry,
  • extremely limited storage
  • dead end
  • less than 36″ between cabinet banks
  • dark entry way

After

opened up

cabinets extended into living room range wall, no closet

bamboo dog bowl shelf adjustable shelves for wine & books

After summary:

  • storage galore! (many of the new cabinets are less than 1/2 full!)
  • removal of closet lets daylight all the way to entry door of condo
  • horizontal cabinet bank extended into living provides storage for media
  • under cabinet task lighting
  • pooch bowl zone (they can’t chase them around the floor anymore!)
  • quartz countertop with undermount sink
  • concealed slide-out garbage under sink
  • refinishing of hardwoods with warmer, natural tone

We slightly modified the wall that the range is on, extending it by a couple of feet to catch the run of base & wall cabinets. The plan is completely opened up & supports flexible furniture placement & a huge amount of natural daylighting from 14′ high windows.

Happy client!
