It can be challenging to make a city dwelling functional. In addition to having limited space, the rooms are often narrow and long. The home owner was concerned with how to fit all the amenities of today’s modern kitchen in such space while keeping its esthetic beauty and function. We were able to achieve this by strategically placing appliances and cabinetry in places that takes away the linier feel of a brownstone; so visually maximizing the width of the property. In addition, it is important to select the appropriate appliance and island size so nothing overpowers another; which results in a well-balanced space.
