Chesley Knoll - Apartment Kitchen

This custom kitchen is part of an adventuresome project my wife and I embarked upon to create a complete apartment in the basement of our townhouse. We designed a floor plan that creatively and efficiently used all of the 385-square-foot-space, without sacrificing beauty, comfort or function – and all without breaking the bank! To maximize our budget, we did the work ourselves and added everything from thrift store finds to DIY wall art to bring it all together.

Since the kitchen / living room has no windows, we wanted to be sure that it felt warm and comfortable. We used a combination of recessed lights, under-cabinet lights, and this pendant light to create a bright welcoming space. We bought both the under-cabinet and pendant lights secondhand for $7.50 and $20 respectively.
