Hardworking Small Kitchen Redo
Rethinking the layout of Features Editor Jessica Thuston’s cramped kitchen resulted in a space that’s as good-looking as it is hardworking. Here are her tips for kitchen remodeling.
Galley LayoutJessica created a galley layout with the range, sink, and dishwasher on one side and a wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinetry around the fridge on the other. “My favorite feature is a tall cabinet equipped with sliding drawers that hold all of our small appliances―saving precious countertop space," she says. I even had the electrician add an outlet inside the cabinet so I can use the toaster in place.”
Here, Jessica and her son, Tripp, enjoy reclaimed space achieved by removing a tall cabinet.
