Your movement in the Kitchen should be like a well-composed dance – purposeful, efficient, and without distraction


Well beyond a few cupboards or the Fridge, storage includes your pantry goods, small appliances, fresh/frozens & more


Did you know that about 80% of your time in the Kitchen is in ‘mis-en-place’? Properly placed counters are crucial for Prep

Lighting is critical to a safe and positive working environment. It needs to be as well-situated and thoughtful as the power & outlets.


Forget almost everything you knew about the ‘Kitchen Triangle’. For movement, work with a radial energy from the main Prep/Work space.


The right finishing touches bring your perfect dream Kitchen to completion, from Pulls to Paints – with safety and maintenance in mind.
