Merillat Classic’s Ralston cabinets really score!
A recent Carolina Kitchen & Bath project in Kernersville, NC proves that small doesn’t have to be skimpy. Our client chose Merillat Classic Ralston with a painted Cotton finish to lend a clean, uncomplicated look at an affordable price. Staying within the budget was important, but that didn’t mean they had to sacrifice smart storage options. The base cabinets have added functionalities that maximize the usefulness of the space.
The pot and pan drawer cabinet to the left of the dishwasher provides deep drawers in which to store any kind of cookware, from stock pots to Crock Pots(tm). Drawers like this make the most of every square inch of space and make life more convenient. You’ll find that you don’t have to get down on your knees to drag something out from the back of the cabinet. To the right of the sink, there’s a pull-out wastebasket cabinet so access to the trash can is conveniently located next to the main food preparation area.
Maximize every inch.
The range and the refrigerator are located across from the sink, giving this a classic galley kitchen an efficient work triangle. There’s plenty of room for two people to work together on dinner but still be able to stay out of each other’s way.
The base cabinets on both sides of the range have two pull-out trays in each, making the most of the interior space. The refrigerator is built in with an extra-deep cabinet above, creating storage for seldom-used items. A convenient over-the-range microwave saves counter space. Our client chose a straight crown molding on the wall cabinets that goes all the way to the ceiling, emphasizing the simple style. Glossy gray subway tile highlights the Silver Brown granite countertops and the kitchen becomes brighter by the addition of under-cabinet lighting, trimmed out with light rail.
Directly off the kitchen there’s a small dining area with a niche, so our client decided to augment the kitchen storage with cabinets here, too. This provides a convenient space for glassware and china above; table linens and large serving pieces below.
