Trailer Trials and Tribulations

When the client approached us to help her with the kitchen in her trailer, the number one concern was accessibility. Due to some mobility issues the client has, the original layout meant that most of the base cabinets were unusable. So to address this issue we designed the kitchen with all drawer cabinets that offered full extension soft close hardware so the client could see inside and access the entire cabinet easily. The soft close feature was just that little extra design touch, so the drawers would not slam shut when she closed them. We also included roll-out trays in the pantry and a full extension spice pull-out next to the stove.

The client chose a beautiful solid cherry raised panel door, in a cider stain. A medium tone, that perfectly highlighted the cherry wood grain yet was not so dark it made the kitchen feel too small. Glass wall cabinets added a touch of elegance, while the “dove white” countertop and walls, kept the space light and bright.

With the addition of over sized brushed nickel handles, directional lighting, an extra deep sink and an arched Moen faucet, we were able to mix a little bit of modern with the traditional.

The final finished kitchen turned a drab non-functional space into a rich looking, bright open concept feel that offers more usable space than the client ever thought possible.
