About the Job:
This well maintained 20+ year old home was in need of an update to better suit the current homeowner’s lifestyle. The kitchen was dated with a low ceiling and pickled cabinets from the 1990’s. Storage was limited and the depth of the refrigerator restricted the flow around the island.
By raising the ceiling 24” to match the height of the adjoining breakfast room, it gave the kitchen an expansive feel. The original cabinets were removed and replaced with white shaker-style cabinets up to the new ceiling height for added storage, along with an island cabinet in a gray shaker-style. A pantry cabinet was installed for more efficient storage and the down-draft cooktop was removed from the island for additional prep space. An induction range and counter depth refrigerator helped to maximize the available space and allow for a better flow around the island.
The granite countertops and 4” backsplash was dark and there was no accent lighting. The tile flooring was tired looking and offered little appeal to this kitchen.
The new lighter granite countertops, tile backsplash, and accent lighting provided a light and airy transitional look to their new kitchen. Wood-look tile flooring was also installed throughout the home to provide unity in the design.
