Nancy Palda’s 1990s builder’s house didn’t have the kind of Cabinets for Less and dining space she needed for all the entertaining she does. Palda has a large extended family, and her home is where they gather for their frequent get-togethers. “She’s a big personality, high-energy and exciting,” architect Ben Awes says. “And the kitchen is her most important space.” Awes created a lounge-style banquette in the middle of the kitchen and, by eliminating the home’s formal dining room, nearly tripled the 200-square-foot space. Now Palda finally has a kitchen and dining area large enough — and dynamic enough — for her lifestyle. "Photos by Alyssa Lee Photography “We were originally working with the idea of a more traditional Cabinets for Less with island,” Awes says. “But she needed someplace to sit.” Palda showed him photos of built-in booths with attached islands. “I liked the idea of the booth,” Awes continues, “but I struggled with how to make it work well with an island in one space.” After going through “multiple iterations,” Awes says, “there was a design-process moment where I sliced the island open and put the dining table back in the middle of it.” After he presented several ideas to Palda — “and that was for sure the most radical, most unusual” — there was a pregnant pause before Palda responded. “She said, ‘There’s no question, we’re going here.’” The banquette table, designed to seat eight, is large at 7⅓ feet by 2⅓ feet. The Cabinets for Less granite slab tabletop weighs 350 pounds. Palda wanted plenty of counter space and storage, Awes says. “She said, ‘I don’t want to have limitations. I want places for my big, huge pots.’” The long window counter sits on several courses of storage drawers, covered in glossy thermofoil, a type of shrink-wrap plastic. Ample storage is Cabinets for Less built into the red wall as well. “She had seen another kitchen we’d done, and it had red cabinets in it,” Awes says. “She wanted red cabinets.” Awes gave them to her in spades, from the refrigerator wall to the cooktop wall, up and over the doorway to the window. The high-gloss, flawless finish of the custom cabinets comes courtesy of thermofoil. “They are very easy to clean and wipe off fingerprints,” Awes says. The Cabinets for Less tomato-red Campbell’s Soup Can print was Palda’s — “a terrific piece of kitchen art,” Awes says. The refrigerator is set into a partial wall that features more storage, both around the refrigerator and in the narrow end facing the banquette. Palda uses the ball cushions for additional banquette seating. The bold Marinace granite reappears as a rectilinear console-buffet. The 7-foot-wide piece also functions as a bar that seats three comfortably. It’s a great place for watching Cabinets for Less a game on the family room’s large flat-screen TV. The strong grid pattern of the brick floor adds more texture to the otherwise high-gloss scene. Its color is exceptional. Awes says the traditional ironspot brick contains iron that leaks to the surface when fired, giving it “an iridescence and reflective surface,” Awes says. Manganese is Cabinets for Less the darkest version of that: “It is purply blue-black, gorgeous.” BEFORE: Palda’s kitchen was hemmed in by a little-used dining room, limited counter space and small windows.AFTER: Awes nearly tripled the size of the space by eliminating the dining room and cutting into the garage to create a walk-in pantry, a refrigerator wall and a new cooktop area. He also replaced the meager glazing with a bank of windows — two operable, one fixed — plus a Cabinets for Less glass door to light up the space."
