Remodel Reveal: A Bright and Airy Kitchen

Background:

Like most remodels, most homeowners make the decision to move forward with a renovation when the space is completely outdated or doesn’t function as well as it might have when they first moved in. For this client, in addition to updating the aesthetic appeal to their kitchen, it was important to lighten up the space to feel bright and airy.

Solution:

In fulfilling their dreams of a sunny and inviting kitchen, we created a lighting plan, which consisted of removing the existing soffit and fluorescent lights, and installing new drop pendants, can lights and LED under cabinet lighting.

Our client felt that the existing wood panel on their island peninsula was also darkening the space, so they asked us to remove it and apply new drywall. While this isn’t a request we get often, we have to agree that it was the right move in this situation.

Moreover, we removed all of the old cabinets and installed new Showplace cabinets, including multi-level uppers to convey more visual interest. This aesthetic feature was especially important to our client, as the kitchen opened up to the living room.

To maximize all storage opportunities, our client chose pull-out shelves in their pantry closet, a trash pull-out, as well as a designated bread drawer.

After the cabinets were installed, we laid a Kashmir Gold granite counter top with a half bullnose edge and arranged a biscuit-colored subway tile backsplash. In completing this project, new stainless steel appliances were put in their place and Amerock hardware was fastened to the drawers and doors.Kitchen Subway Tile Backsplash
