This was an absolutely gorgeous design. However, it was immediately evident that it would fall well outside the budget. Also, it did not incorporate any of the additional features requested (seating area, washer/dryer). This kitchen is an excellent design for a small kitchen area inside of a larger home and the aesthetic and taste level of appliances cabinetry is absolutely impeccable. The bathroom is equally impressive. Also of note is the thoughtfulness of the lighting given the small windows, a factor not as carefully considered by many of the other designers. Despite these strong positives, I could not rank this submission above others which stuck more closely to the guidelines.
