Kevin's Bonus Storage Space Kitchen in Washington D.C.

Small Cool Kitchens 2010 - Own Division

Who cooks here? Kevin, his wife, and their one year old
Location: Washington, DC
Owned or rented? Owned
Kitchen size: 115 square feet

What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? My wife's requirements were simple...lots of storage. We "stole" some space from an existing coat closet. The "bonus" space became a pantry built into the wall. This gave us extra storage in the tiny kitchen to allow for the cabinet next to the stove to act as a pull out trash bin (my wife's other requirement).

Give Kevin a THUMBS UP if you think this kitchen belongs in the finals!

What's the story of your kitchen?
Washington DC is filled with colonial style homes. Our vision was to transform our 1950's colonial cottage kitchen into a modern functional space.

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
I like to make homemade gluten-free pizza!
