Alessandra's Social and Eclectic Kitchen

Small Cool Kitchens 2011

NAME: Alessandra LOCATION: Portland, ME SIZE: 118 square feet WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: Our kitchen is very efficient and eclectic. All the surfaces are prepping surfaces - reclaimed bowling alley island and black walnut butcher block counters. We wanted a cook's kitchen that would double as a social center for the house. We put most of our budget toward opening the layout (including exposing the original 1818 barn board ceiling) and did the finishes on a tight budget by finding cool reclaimed materials.
