Office Staff Kitchen
There's no denying that this office space was in need of a renovation! Although the space was in decent condition, the needs of the operations had changed, as staff were moved around over the years; it was cluttered and inefficient. I began this project with basic space planning (as usual!). What was once a closed office space for one became a semi-private work space for 2, what was once an open work area with cubicles became an additional boardroom, and what was once an awkward open office for 4 was re-planned to more appropriately suit employees and create a useful storage room.
Lastly was the staff kitchen, which was under-performing for staff needs - it was too cramped and literally busting at the seams! We redesigned the kitchen with a new L-shaped layout with ample new upper and lower cabinets plus concealed pull-out garbage and recycling. Although major appliances were moved around, we were able to work with the existing equipment, as well as the existing floors. The warmth of the cabinet doors makes this once sterile-feeling kitchen feel more warm and invited for staff. Quartz countertops and modern door pulls keep the overall look feeling fresh. I love the timeless, transitional style and how we were able to work with many of the existing finishes, resulting in a very budget-friendly revamped staff kitchen!
