Shallow cabinets provide storage and extra counter space without taking up too much space in this compact and oddly shaped kitchen. A low backsplash of small square tiles mimics the color in the larger backsplash across the room.
Designer Denise Maksimowitz embraces the trapezoidal footprint of this kitchen with custom cabinetry that incorporates top-quality appliances. A modern glass range hood is a cool, contemporary addition to the space, while the granite backsplash below follows the same curve of the hood.
Sleek, contemporary cabinetry in a light wood is paired with dark countertops. Bright green tiles in two different sizes are used to create a stunning backsplash. Above the sink, the designer added shelves for wine storage.
A small space doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. This kitchen makes the most of every nook and cranny by incorporating storage and shelving at every angle. The countertop may not be deep, but it provides prep space.
