Chevron Floor in Small Kitchen

A stunning chevron-patterned hardwood floor is just one of this transitional kitchen's many standout features. Joel Kelly maximized square footage with floor-to-ceiling cabinets and a sliding track ladder for easy access. A steel-and-glass wall separates the kitchen from living spaces, although windows in the wall allow easy access for eating at the bar and socializing with the cook.

An industrial steel-and-glass wall separates the kitchen from the living and dining space in this transitional townhouse. A row of windows above the kitchen bar opens, so guests can sit and grab a bite to eat or converse with the chef.

Dynamic Townhouse Kitchen Is Fabulously Functional

Form and function expertly combine in this stunning townhouse kitchen. A wall of steel-framed interior windows provides practical division between the kitchen and dining room while adding an architectural focal point to the home. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets maximize the kitchen's limited square footage, and a track ladder provides easy accessibility to high cabinets while adding another point of interest to the dynamic space.

Designer Joel Kelly chose custom cabinetry that stretches to the ceiling to maximize storage space in this townhouse kitchen. A track ladder slides around the entire kitchen, providing accessibility.
