What were the main items on the owner’s wish list for remodeling this space?
Having all of the conveniences of a kitchen, but making it look like a wet bar.
What was the single-largest issue you wanted to address for the owner?
Making all of the appliances work in the space. We added the area to the left as a wine storage area to keep the wall from being too appliance-heavy.
What was your biggest obstacle in this space and how did you overcome it?
Making everything symmetrical without putting cabinet panels on the under-counter appliances. We kept many of the appliances symmetrical and chose to not worry about the microwave drawer having a wood panel.
