This adorable kitchen in Point Loma, CA is now open to the family room, small in spaces but united with a nature-inspired color palette. The kitchen went through an extensive remodel removing walls, raised ceiling, exposing the beam and a new glass door for the back entry and now this small kitchen feels open and spacious. The cabinetry features shaker elements―clean lines, plain trim, and little ornamentation― great for transitional decor.
Functional fixtures and modern appliances peacefully coexist with the mosaic marble backsplash. Hidden behind the door panels is a 30” Subzero refrigerator/freezer integrated nicely to keep the kitchen plan, clean and understated. The corner sink is recessed back adding a nice detail but even more importantly a more accessible corner access to the kitchen windows.
Accessories and details added to the kitchen cabinets give this chef everything she was looking for with a spice pullout, knife block pullout and rollouts to top off the new cabinets.
When space is tight, it is a great option for a small family to open up the walls and add a counter where the family can dine. On the walls, neutral gray paint creates a soothing atmosphere.
Adjacent to the kitchen was a cramped room that functioned as a workout room and laundry room. By changing some wall space, closing in a door and removing a closet the new space has great storage and is more open and functional for a quick workout.
In the family room the fireplace was re-tiled with a concrete looking porcelain tile topped off with a rustic beam mantle. Combined with new home furnishings to make the most of a small space, this new family room is both functional and a great place for the couple to spend time with each other on a daily basis and to entertain guest. A new space has been created with the feel of a comfortable cozy space for all to enjoy it.
