RETAILOBSERVER.COM MARCH 2019 36 FIRST PLACE / SMALL KITCHEN Well-Tailored Fit After a flood damaged his condo, the owner called on Martin de Sousa to replace the generic builder kitchen with a more up-to-date iteration. His list of requests included full-height storage, additional seating in the bay window, and a materials palette to coordinate with his existing décor. De Sousa maximized storage in the relatively small kitchen with ceiling- height custom cabinets, employing two contrasting door styles—white flat-panel and a wood-grain slab— and different cabinetry depths to help break down the visual scale of the space. The kitchen features special design details that include push-to-open drawers below the built-in bench seating, and a Caesarstone slab backsplash and 1-inch Caesarstone countertop with a waterfall edge. Black handles, fixtures, and faucets add a contemporary flavor to the space. —Nigel F.
