We’ve been working on adding a mini-kitchen feature to Glade Cottage which would make it livable year-round and not just as a guest house.
Under the counter we used a skinny cabinet left-over from the house renovation 3 years ago. I needed to purchase upper cabinets that wouldn’t overwhelm the space so I visited the warehouse of our local cabinet retailer to see what they might have on hand.
I was happy to find a 21-inch and 30-inch cabinets to fill the 53-inch wall. The shorter cabinet seemed perfect for over the high-arch faucet in the sink area.
Our carpenter hung them leaving the 2-inch gap at the left side facing the sink.
The plan is to also have the front of the undersink area closed in with a custom cabinet using 2 all-wood doors from our old kitchen cabinets in the house.
In addition to the kitchen cabinets I also bought an enormous cabinet that I hoped would fit over the washer and dryer in the laundry area.
While a shorter cabinet was available I thought it better, neater, and cleaner to hang a larger cabinet with doors all the way to the ceiling rather than to use the top for storage.
The laundry area needs more light so an under-cabinet fixture is on the list.
Where do you need more illumination?
