White Kitchen with Space Saving Ideas

This kitchen with space saving ideas was originally built in 1920. Our client’s goal for this remodel was to design a kitchen that would appear as though it was original to the house. The kitchen, measuring only 19 feet in width from front to back, could not be expanded beyond the original footprint because of its proximity to Herring River. Despite this issue, the homeowners wished to have space to accommodate their large extended family while entertaining. Without adding an inch, a kitchen with limited space now fits a crowd, thanks to clever problem solving.

We began with beautiful white custom inset cabinetry with recessed panel and beveled inside bead detail for perimeter cabinets.

Countertops – 2 1/2” thick Pental Quartz, Statuario; edge detail is Dupont over Eased.

We designed this Pull-out table to maximize use of limited space in kitchen. The table pull out measures 80” wide x 28” deep.


Custom legs feature hidden casters for easy roll out and the custom-designed table slides out from inside the center island easily. The pull-out table can also be used as an additional space for placing food and beverages during large gatherings and then be completely concealed during quiet times. As a result, our client has the extra entertaining space she had dreamed about.



Lastly, storage was an issue in this kitchen and the answer was numerous built-ins and various nooks to provide additional storage space. Cabinet doors conceal the coffee maker and toaster area.
