Big Style in a Small Space

Contemporary Kitchen with Ceiling High Cabinets

Sheri Russell of Park City, Utah, is the interior designer responsible for the revamped kitchen design—a design that came with a unique set of challenges. “[The kitchen] was full of design and flow challenges that invariably created opportunities for better utilization of space,” she recalls. “The high vaulted ceiling allowed for higher cabinets, and I had a rolling ladder installed for conveniently accessing the high cabinets.” The track for the rolling ladder is echoed in the cabinet design, and it visually anchors the height of the space. Similarly, the black granite countertops provide another strong horizontal element, and the eye-catching pendant light fixtures are a third way Sheri’s design offsets the sense of height in the room.
