Cooks are happier when all used items are within reach and counters are free of clutter. The shallow backsplash shelf in this design allows for efficient prep in a small kitchen. The clients are tall and can easily access the upper cabinets.

Other Items, Comments or Advice: When using a cool pallet, wood adds warmth and comfort to a space. In a kitchen or well used area, it is imperative the wood can withstand basic affronts such as spills and splatter. I advise other designers to check out Grothouse woods with the “Durata” finish. My clients are amazed at the resilience and cleanability of the products. I’m always confident that Grothouse will supply a superior product and that my clients will be exceedingly satisfied.
