Proud to be a Galley Kitchen
This mid-century beach cottage galley kitchen was comprised of dated and failing materials, most of which were original to the construction of the home (the exception was the laminate flooring). The sink wall (132" in length) was originally an exterior wall, hence the 'window' above the sink while the cooking wall is less than eight feet (finishing out at 95"), comprising a total of just over 81 square feet. The challenges were to provide more counter and storage space, a lighter and brighter kitchen, maintain the existing flooring while over-coming the voids left by the previous cabinetry, maintain the existing (boxed in) exhaust duct, replicate the existing paneling that was used throughout the house, install off-white cabinets on off-white walls (wall color throughout the house) so that the cabinets stood out and all on a very tight budget. This was achieved and more with a lot of ingenuity, planning and craftsmanship. The cabinetry was reconfigured and the refrigerator relocated to maximize counter and storage space, new paneling was fabricated to match the existing while the floor was patched with solid wood that closely matched the existing laminate providing a seamless look. Under cabinet lighting along with mini-can lights over the sink augment the over-head and exhaust hood lights. Beautiful cabinets and countertops along with high-functioning appliances have rendered this a kitchen any chef would be happy to work in.
"I love my new kitchen. This wonderful remodel has made my entire beach cottage feel so much nicer. It is a joy to cook in this kitchen. I enjoyed working with Clive and Molly and their entire team on this project. Their attention to detail, design, quality of products, and professionalism far exceeded my expectations. Thank you!!!" ~ Jill K.
