Room With A View: Before & After

This homeowner maintains her connection to nature with wonderful use of a space nestled among the green tree tops.

After waiting years to get her dream ‘city view’ condo, Eva lamb’s new home’s kitchen recieved a full makeover by AyA’s designer Amy Dillon. With the help of Mother Nature’s rays, the small kitchen area was brightened with reflective Chelsea White High Gloss upper cabinets. The base cabinets and tall pantry unit are Manhattan Barley White Oak, complementing the cork flooring. Pulling together the cabinets’ finishes, Cambria’s Torquay countertop continues as a full-height backsplash. To make the most of the space, the kitchen was designed using small appliances and a single-bowl sink, allowing maximum storage and countertop surface.

Accommodating today’s super busy lifestyle this kitchen stores away small appliances smartly.

Hidden behind the cabinets are accessories such as a base pull-out cabinet, allowing easy access to all items in the cabinet. Utilizing every inch of the kitchen space, a multi-use pantry was designed for small wall adjacent to the window. The main feature of the pantry is the appliance lift-up door cabinet, with the countertop continuing beneath it. This allows the everyday essential small appliances to be tucked away, keeping the kitchen clean and sleek. The base of the pantry incorporates deep drawers, creating storage for pots, pans, and larger dishware. The countertop was continued along the floor-to-ceiling window wall, creating a nook for those quick breakfast mornings. For those dinner party evenings, the extended countertop allows a social space, as the party always makes its way back to the kitchen.
