I do believe I have found my dream kitchen – and I realize I’ve probably said that before. But today’s small kitchen by Terracotta Design Build makes such great use of space in charming style, it’s hard not to fall in love!
Take a step back and you’ll see that the actual meal prep area is somewhat small. But true to “charming old house” form, nooks and crannies add storage and functionality. Like this adorable pantry carved into the entry to the breakfast nook. It reminds me of my first house, a Sears kit bungalow, that had one of those wooden ironing boards built into the wall behind a narrow door. I loved that house!
Here’s the view into the breakfast nook. On the left side you’ll see the pantry doors. Gorgeous wood floors pave the way for beautiful design and functionality. I’d rather have a small kitchen with custom features than a large, cookie-cutter one.
Lots of windows keep the breakfast nook light and airy. A custom banquette includes drawers underneath for storage. A stackable washer and dryer set is enclosed behind screened doors.
You can fold laundry at the table or on a counter, and if the house had a drop-down ironing board, you could take care of that task, too.
Here you can see the flow into the breakfast nook. I love the small island which provides a little more storage and counter space. I sometimes wish I had chosen a smaller island for my own kitchen.
I’ve been featuring a kitchen every Thursday for several months now, but starting next week, I’ll feature some type of room tour on Thursdays. I’ll still show plenty of kitchens, but I’d like to showcase other rooms, too.
