Here are the renderings of what the space was suppose to look like:
We moved the microwave around for a more functional kitchen but overall, I think the renderings nailed it. Here’s the finished result:
The tiles used for the backsplash are Cuban cement tiles that weighed a ton but were worth the hassle of reinforcing the wall and having them shipped from the States. They’ve become the focal point that really makes this kitchen. They are from Avente Tile and can be ordered by phone or email.
We really used every nook and cranny as efficiently as possible, while to trying to minimize clutter. You’ll see below that we’ve created a counter top cabinet to store counter appliances like blenders, juicers, food processors. The stuff that you use on a reguler but don’t want to leave hanging around on the counter. Having this cabinet makes them very accessible and easy to store.
