A “Zen Botanical” kitchen was the request. What resulted is a modern and functional space with clean lines and a big pop of color. Located in a townhouse in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, the outdated galley kitchen was a source of frustration to the client who loved cooking but had no desire to spend time in the uninspiring atmosphere. To infuse the space with excitement, a dramatic shade of tomato red was chosen for the backsplash. To counterbalance the bold tile color and create an airy and open feel, light maple cabinets and an earth-toned countertop were selected. A Kohler stainless steel farmhouse sink with its sleek design and ample size emerged as one of our client’s favorite elements of her new kitchen. To create visual interest while working at the sink, glass display shelving was installed above. Seating around the dining table includes a custom-made upholstered bench and stools. All are on wheels to make navigating around the small space easy and clean up a breeze. An Asian-inspired pendant adds much-needed light while a wall niche with shelves provides space for the client’s collection of porcelain botanical boxes. The kitchen renovation complete, our client is whipping up culinary delights in Zen-filled bliss.
