Shrouded in poor lighting, low ceilings and minimal storage, an Upper East Side kitchen was transformed by New York-based designer Cecilia Dupire into a multifunctional and breathable environment for cooking and dining.
Deep cabinets allow for rollouts and even a vertical two-sided pantry on the storage wall.
A single glass pane replaced the original casement window to better illuminate the small space.
There is more to Dupire’s new kitchen than meets the eye. Numerous new appliances are either masked by the luminous white cabinets or blend right in.
Herringbone oak floors remained intact to honor the heritage of the space and provide balance.
Glacier white Corian countertops complement the polished white wooden cabinets.
A previous eat-in kitchen space was removed to make room for the installation of the storage wall.
The ceiling was lifted a full foot to amplify the new storage opportunities.
