Three big ideas set the stage for the vintage look: the cabinets, a rolling ladder originally designed to gain access to library shelves, and a freestanding oak Hoosier cabinet base that evokes early unfitted kitchens.
Having lived without enough storage for years, the Ryterskis craved floor-to-ceiling cabinets. When they spotted a library ladder in a kitchen in TOH
, they called on a company that had been making them for more than 100 years. Homeowner tip:
Eric Ryterski, Louisville, Colorado says, "If you have more wall space than floor space, opt for shallow, to-the-ceiling cabinets. You'll get plenty of storage with no need for costly interior pullouts."
