Kitchens Under $75,000 California Dream Kitchen SARAH ROBERTSON Studio Dearborn, Mamaroneck, NY Not only did this once dark, cramped kitchen need to be brightened up to go with its California location, it needed to meet the needs of various members of the family. The client is only 5' tall, so accommodations were made to help her reach storage areas and work at the countertop. The client's daughter, meanwhile, needed suffi- cient counter space and top-of-the-line appliances for her small baking business. Sarah Robertson not only had space constraints in the 148-sq.-ft. kitchen, she had a tight budget and the challenge of working remotely from the opposite coast. In fact, while design sessions were held weekly via Skype and FaceTime, the designer only visited the site upon completion of the project. Custom cabinets from Studio Dearborn by Schrock's of Walnut Creek feature Shaker inset doors in white along the perimeter, with a custom island in turquoise for a distinctive California vibe. The perimeter backsplash, an arabesque mini tile from Pratt and Larson, features a coordinating shade of turquoise. A clean white Carrara stone countertop from Pental Quartz adds brightness, as does the brushed nickel hardware from Top Knobs. The custom island features a solid wood countertop, providing ample workspace. Along the perimeter, cabinet storage abounds – including a custom compost bin, spice drawer, Docking Drawer charging station and Kesseböhmer LeMans corner pull-out. In the toe kicks, pull-out steps were provided to allow the homeowner to gain 4" of height to reach into wall cabinets and use the island more comfortably. The back wall includes an integrated refrigerator/freezer, induction cooktop, chimney-style hood and 30" oven, all from JennAir. Around the turn, a 30" Kraus sink and Brizo pull-down spray faucet sit below the relocated window, along with a pan- el-ready JennAir dishwasher.
