When Velinda, the business manager of HGTV Design Star winner Emily Henderson’s design studio, reached out to us about her tiny 49-square-foot kitchenette, we were ready for the challenge. Henderson routinely does makeover takeovers for her employees, and Velinda wanted to renovate the dark and outdated kitchen in her bungalow’s cramped basement.
After much deliberation, Velinda decided on open shelving to keep the space light and airy. For base cabinets, she chose Austin style in the color Harbor as the best fit. Harbor kept the small space light and bright, allowing her to incorporate color without making the room appear smaller.
