K&B Preview: Small kitchen, Small Budget, Big Resultscomments (3) July 5th, 2011 in Blogs
I’m down in North Carolina right now photographing a few projects for the magazine. It seems like a marathon trying to shoot 3 projects between Washington D.C. and Brevard, NC in 4 days, but projects like this kitchen remodel make it all worth it.
This is young Chapel Hill architect Reid Highley’s kitchen. It will be appearing in our annual Kitchens & Baths issue. We were drawn to the project for several reasons. Here are two. First, the cost of the entire remodel (including appliances) defies the results Reid achieved. How low? For now, I’ll just say that Reid came in below his $10K budget. Second, the kitchen is small and functional. Reid used a couple of smart strategies to make the space feel larger than it is and to make it meet the demands of his tiny, 800 sq.ft. home.
Check out the article for more photos and to see what Reid has to say about designing a small, beautiful, functional kitchen on an ultra tight budget.
