The kitchen in this quirky 1950s ranch is literally the “center” of the house and served as the main hub of activity for this family of four. From meal preparation for the family (including the family dogs) to a homework/work station, the renovated kitchen allows the homeowners to maximize storage in a small space. By utilizing space saving cabinet drawers and a “drawer” microwave, countertops remain clear and provide plenty of workspace. The pantry includes a second refrigerator, tall cabinets with roll-out shelves and specialized base cabinets, including a large bin for dog food storage.
