It’s not often that JeanE Kitchen and Bath Design is asked to design a kitchen in an apartment. So naturally we were so excited when we received a call from a lovely couple moving into a Senior Community.
This particular kitchen is a small space, and our clients had some very specific needs that they wanted us to address. The top priority was to provide a space to sit and eat comfortably.
There is no dining area in this apartment so finding space at the peninsula was the only option. We came up with a clever curved extension that would keep the traffic pattern from the bedroom nice and wide, but also give them plenty of leg room to sit and dine. The view from the living room shows the curved counter top from a different perspective.
There is no room in this space for a trash can to be sitting in the middle of the floor, and with such a beautiful new space, who wants to look at the nasty can? This handy pull-out trash cabinet solves that problem and accommodates trash and recyclables.
One of the most important things about designing this kitchen was making it easily accessible and safe for our clients to use. As we age, it is sometimes difficult to reach a microwave that is mounted over the range. This small under cabinet microwave enables easy reach but still leaves countertop space below.
Not having the microwave over the range made room for us to install this beautiful hood and create a stunning focal point with glass mosaic tile.
A set of drawers and a corner super susan cabinet provide for lots of storage.
The dark hardwood floors are not only beautiful, but they provide a nice smooth surface with no tripping hazards between spaces. Creamy painted cabinets contrast with the floors and the verde butterfly granite and backsplash tile pull all of the colors together. The wall color helps to enhance the whole look and is the favorite color of the homeowner.
They are thrilled with their new kitchen, and we are so happy that we were able to create a safe and stylish place for our customers as they age and have changing needs.
