A young Manhattan couple on a budget posed the following challenge: Create an attractive workable kitchen from an existing narrow L-shaped space. Near the entrance to the dining room, tall glass-fronted cabinets were designed for storage and serving. A built-in refrigerator and broom closet flank these cabinets, situated conveniently near the sink and range. The painted, traditionally styled cabinets, black granite counters, and black-and-white terrazzo floor tiles give the kitchen a clean and classic appearance.

Later in the project, a cramped awkward bathroom was completely redone to make the space more useable. Handmade wall tiles, a custom medicine cabinet and a white marble lavatory counter are among the new design elements.
