Small Spaces, Big Ideas

“We wanted to keep the essence of the house,” says Donna Gryzwoc of the recent remodeling of her small Cummaquid kitchen in a historic 1850 home.

“The truth is that big kitchens are just easier to design,” admits David Flanagan, owner of Wychmere Woodworks in Orleans. However, Flanagan concedes that many homeowners on the Cape may lack the luxury of unlimited funds and abundant square footage for their dream kitchen. In this region in particular, small homes are de rigueur—saltboxes and seaside cottages, many historic, are often defined by confined spaces. When it comes to remodeling these kitchens with modern conveniences, woodworkers and kitchen designers can have their work cut out for them.
