My L.A. Kitchen remodel
was an undertaking that at the time, I thought was accomplished in fairly short order considering the circumstances. Well, my NYC redo took a couple of days!
I'm totally into this downsizing, rental thing!
I like classic B&W tile floors in kitchens. The problem here wasn't the style of the floor, but the fact that it was so old that nothing would get it clean enough. My hands still twitch every time I think about how I kept trying to get them clean. No matter how much I scrubbed, nothing.
Enter FLOR! I loves me the carpet tiles.
And Yes, Vertical Storage is your best friend.
Always. Seriously. Especially in small spaces.
Right outside the kitchen (in the small hallway) is a Flea Market find ($100) that hold additional dishes, glasses and acts as a pantry as well.
The old appliances were replaced with new stainless ones from SUMMIT (They're in the Bronx!) from Home Depot AND The small countertop got taken over by
inexpensive butcher block.
This was all about casual, comfortable, realistic design
for the way I live in this space...
...AND of course for entertaining.
Now, it's all food all the time baby!
There are some serious meals coming out of this lilliputian space.
