This project showcases stunning and colorful sustainable solutions for big functionality in small spaces.

Once awkward and dimly-lit, this Modern-Retro Westside Kitchen was creatively altered for improved use, better socializing with a place to sit, and enhanced storage in an inviting and lovely space. This project showcases stunning and colorful sustainable solutions for big functionality in small spaces.

For a couple that uses their small kitchen as much as possible, a creative plan to open and lighten up the space was essential. Daylighting, enhanced storage, and a place to chill all added BIG functionality to the small-ish space.

Salvaged Ceaserstone countertops – from Second Use. Ceaserstone is a manufactured, highly- durable, no-voc, quartz (42% reclaimed) material produced with a high commitment to health and environmental considerations. Additional materials were salvaged or re-used wherever possible, such as the kitchen appliances, butcher block.

A staircase that was previously covered in treacherous tile is now a bright and cheery
blue Marmoleum flooring. Marmoleum (natural linoleum w/ jute backing) is made from mostly natural and renewable material that is completely non-toxic, anti-microbial, and super duper durable.
