My main inspiration for the A-frame kitchen design is the next three images of the same kitchen taken at different distances or angles. Like this kitchen, we need a lot of open shelving.
We need open shelving especially in the A-frame kitchen because it is a smaller kitchen space and we want to maintain an open and modern feel in the space. So we’re going with no upper cabinets and just floating shelving.
A close up of shelves turning the corner with square tiles installed in a brick pattern. The plan (this week, subject to change) in the a-frame kitchen is to have the shelves wrap the corner to the sink window.
I liked this island style a lot. Its a bit different from usual kitchen island fare and it has storage and a place for a couple of stools. We need both of those things in this space. Also, I particularly like the decision to make the shelving out of stained wood. A lot of these painted wood surfaces can get scratched up sometimes especially in the kitchen where you might be sliding bowls or fruit baskets or whatever around, the stained wood has a durable finish.
I’m really liking this subtle off white but still modern subway tile on the backsplash, our main kitchen inspiration also had an off-white tile that has an alabaster quality, it makes things less stark. The focus of this image for me, is the tall cabinet that may or may not be next to our refrigerator. Trying to figure out if there is a cabinet next to the fridge or if we’re just building in the fridge with panels.
We’re so close to finalizing the kitchen plan. It’s time now to do the leg work on finding the right person to fabricate the shelves and I’m really leaning toward ordering from the same company that built the shelves at TEOT’s former shop space. I know how much people loved them because I heard at least once a day.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
