Where many clients gravitate towards neutral cabinetry, this client wanted color and something that would make her feel happy while working in it. With a plant-based diet and 20 small appliances and numerous gadgets, the client does a lot of food preparation (including preparing fresh food for her animals). Easy access storage and a clutter-free kitchen were achieved by creating a wall of sleek tambour doors with electrical outlets so appliances could be used where they are stowed. Numerous storage solutions were incorporated, including deep drawers, slender tray dividers, cutlery inserts and a dedicated prep station (used primarily for pet food and water bowls). The cabinetry is a bold blend of high-gloss, bright-green lacquer and textured melamine – vibrant but not overpowering.
