Remodel Reveal: An Open Concept Kitchen

The Background:

Our client recently purchased a home, which they planned to remodel prior to moving in. The house in general had good bones, but the kitchen layout and aesthetics were very out of date and not to the clients taste.

Before officially calling this house, “home,” our client wanted to remodel their kitchen to create an open-concept feel for easy entertaining in their family room. The only thing standing in the way of their dreams was a wall and some TLC by our team of professionals.

The original wall cut off any interaction between the kitchen and family room area.

Two outdated features of this kitchen are the green laminate countertops and the striped wallpaper.

There was a lot of natural light in this kitchen, which was a bonus.

The Solution:

One benefit to this clients remodel was that they were not living in the home while we were working. This was great because the client didn’t have to modify their daily lifestyle habits around the remodel. For this kitchen remodel, we removed one column of the existing wall that separated the kitchen and family room. The new space where the wall sat previously was used to create a breakfast bar. This modification not only created the open concept our client desired, but it also created additional seating.

The original cabinet boxes were in good shape, so instead of replacing the cabinets altogether, the decision was made to reface. This decision saved our clients some money to use in other areas of the remodel. We installed a cherry autumn wood for the new cabinet door fronts, as well as Venetian Gold granite countertops and a soft gray subway tile for the backsplash.

In the final details leading up to the completion of this kitchen remodel, we laid all new wood flooring throughout the kitchen and family room areas. We also removed the existing wallpaper and painted the walls, installed both under and above cabinet lighting and added pendant lights above the breakfast bar.
