Featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, this space has been transformed from a tiny, dysfunctional space into an open, stylish one. Outfitted with deep blue cabinets, an apron front sink, cantilevered shelving and stainless steel appliances, this space is stylish, modern and functional.
The home's original structure had exposed brick walls, so designers opted to keep them and combine them with cantilevered shelving, modern kitchen cabinets, fresh countertops and stainless steel appliances, creating a look that seamlessly combines the home's original details with new, modern updates.
To attach this system to the wall, two vertical wooden slats were fastened to the wall with a drill, then the shelves were cantilevered over them. Not only does the shelving unit house necessary media components, it creates stylish storage space for books and accessories.
Wires are used to suspend these chunky ‘floating’ walnut shelves on the wall. Underneath, a warm, white LED light is hidden behind the cantilevered glass desk. It illuminates the air bubbles within the glass and is an eye-catching element at night when the rest of the lighting is low.
This tiny house is big on style! We enter into the kitchen and are immediately struck by the simple yet bold palette of cobalt blue, crisp white, and gray. Its contemporary vibe is grounded by the use of classic rustic elements. The brass details (current design trend), chunky shelves, cantilevered tables and the tufted sofa help to create an undeniably elevated look in this tiny home. I especially admire the restraint practiced by matching the white sink to the white counter to the white walls. It seems simple but it creates visual space, which is always valuable in a tiny home.
