- The owners of this Charlotte, NC home – parents of three children with a busy social calendar – needed their 240-sq.-ft. kitchen to have a better workflow, more prep room and dramatically increased storage space. They enlisted Optimal Design’s Robin Dreher to design a transitional space with myriad storage options, a central island with seating and a comfortable design for the family and their guests while maintaining the existing footprint.
- Storage is key: Space was reclaimed for the laundry room, which had once split duties as a pantry. Two tall roll-out pantries now serve that function, with spice pull-outs and racks integrated for increased function. The center island is home to all-around storage, as well as a trash/recycling center, an undercounter drinks refrigerator, cooktop and glass and stainless steel hood.
- Products include appliances from Miele, Sub-Zero and GE Monogram. The cabinetry is cherry wood.
