Another kitchen reno is in the books! And I am loving this one! It has a young and hip vibe, playful backsplash, and oh-so-much storage! Because, let's be real, we all have WAY to many fun (and cute) kitchen gadgets and ALWAYS need more places to put them! Tell me that's not just me....

My clients came to me with a story that is not unfamiliar. They wanted to update their 70s kitchen, keep the same footprint, add more storage, raise the ceiling, and create a unique space that is a little outside their comfort zone. They wanted a nod to traditional and a stainless steel apron front sink was a MUST.
These pics may look familiar to some of you. The low ceilings, dark lighting, laminate, where do I even start. We wanted to keep the footprint the same and make the most of the space. The "afters" are almost unrecognizeable!
| DESIGN PLAN
In order to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary, I mixed a lot of mediums. The raised panel cabinets are timeless and elegant, but I brought things into the 21st century by doing a two tone scheme. The rich dark wood would ground the space on the lower cabinets, while the white uppers would make it feel larger, brighter, and new! Because they wanted to be pushed a little outside of their comfort zone, I selected a multi-tone pennyround tile. It has classic appeal with it's shape and size, but a more contemporary attitude with the graphite, gray, and off white hues. The quartz is a newer material, but in a marble pattern which again is the perfect transition from old to new. Add in some bling with the lighting and cabinet hardware and you've got yourself the perfect recipe for a stylish kitchen update! (pun was most definitely intended!)
They also wanted to add storage to their adjoining dining room and create a place to serve large dinners. I designed a built in buffet to accommodate lots of storage for linens and serving platters, while allowing for a buffet in the center. It tied the two spaced together and made the dining room more functional for entertaining.
What a transformation! I was beyond thrilled with how this one came together and how it completely changed the space!
And don't you just love how the dining room turned out? I would love to host dinner parties for friends and families in this space! The hint of pennyround with the dramatic cabinets and lighting are such a gorgeous focal point and really tie everything together!
Kitchens are the heart of the home and such a smart place to invest. If you are thinking about a complete overhaul or just a small update, don't hassle with the stress of doing it alone.
