Smart Moves

1 elevated faucet  To keep the base of the majestic Rohl spigot free of debris, the designer gave it its own marble pedestal.

2 rescued space  A narrow slot became another storage opportunity in the form of long drawers, perfect for keeping kitchen towels close at hand.

3 hidden appliances  The dishwasher and refrigerator were outfitted with custom paneled fronts to blend seamlessly with the cabinets.

4 custom liners Dedicated undercounter space for knives and other cook’s tools makes for clutter-free countertops.
