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.
