This kitchen once belonged to one of our favorite clients. After five years of discussing and dreaming up this kitchen design we renovated it earlier this year and then guess what? They decided to sell their home. Of course all our hearts ached, but they have since moved into a much larger and rather beautiful home and we'll be renovating that kitchen as well.
I did a horrible job and failed to take real before photos so these few images are all we have to show how far the kitchen had come. But I think y'all get the picture? Dated cabinets, an unnecessary bulkhead and so much more. I did post a few pics to Instagram as well here and here and yes, my client even chipped in on demo day.
We updated to white shaker style cabinets, white quartz countertops, then added some contrast with glass tiles for the backsplash.
The existing gas range and dishwasher were in great shape so those remained but a new refrigerator and hood were purchased.
We removed the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room and created a small seating area. For added contrast, the lower cabinets here were done in a cinnamon colored shaker style finish.
This area also housed a wine cooler and added storage for wines and glassware.
An awkward door once separated the laundry room from the kitchen and while we often prefer to keep the laundry room separate, it just made for easier flow to remove the door and add similar cabinets and countertops above the washer and dryer for folding and sorting laundry.
And that's it folks. Our very first kitchen renovation of the year and we've been told that the kitchen sealed the deal for the new owners. Hip, hip, hooray for that.
It's been a year of the kitchens, and we'll have more reveals to show over the next few months.
Sorry to be so MIA over here but we've just been slammed with projects, which of course is a wonderful blessing. I'll be catching up on my blog reading this weekend to see how y'all have been doing.Cheers to a great Labor Day weekend!
