Usually, we don't think of putting something big and black in a tiny room. But sometimes, it's worth it to break the rules...and that's what one of clients did for their tiny breakfast nook that has a powder room tiny enough to be part of the tiny breakfast spot that looks out to the beautiful back yard. We made the slab door out of solid poplar planks and painted it black. It's pretty heavy, but we still managed to haul it on top of the SUV.
The breakfast room is about I would say 45 square feet, and the powder room about 20 square feet. The the big and heavy black slab door we built for the powder room entrance is 56" wide. And the reason for the width is because our client wanted to hang a framed print on it and the print is big. Another creative use of the sliding barn door!
The kitchen is di-colour with black cabinets at the bottom and white at the top...trendy and hip...and of course very beautiful. So with a kitchen like that, you can imagine how nice it is when the orange plastic cover is lifted from the entrance so that you can see the flow of blacks from the kitchen to the breakfast room. Young and Lawrence, that's where all the beautiful things are found!
