Crisp, White and Narrow
Here's a little highlight from an NYC townhouse the measures just 16 feet in width. Check this kitchen/nook space. It's cozy but you really can't go wrong with the all white look. Keep that space as bright as possible and you'll forget about the narrow, galley style.
Killer little added elements to highlight the space include the fresh yellow glass tiles of the backsplash as well as the factory style steel window off the sitting area.
It's subtle but I like the way they carried the horizontal lines throughout the space from the layout of the cabinetry to the cladding of the wood walls.
The floor to ceiling windows are flat out perfect once again helping open that space. Bring on as much of that natural light as possible.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
