Normandy Park Kitchen Reno, Part 2 | Before & After

Kitchen design is one of the favorites, it's like a giant puzzle and you can change around the pieces until you find the perfect layout. For the Normandy Park Kitchen Reno my clients had found a house they really liked but there was one thing that was holding them back, the kitchen. We started the design process before they had even finalized the purchase of the home and with my reassurance that the kitchen "could" be amazing they took the plunge and put in an excepted offer. 

BEFORE

The original kitchen had dated oak cabinets that had seen better days, generic white appliances and not nearly enough work and storage area.

The plan was to brighten the kitchen and create more space with a custom island that replaced the small eat-in table area. White cabinets with a soft warm glaze were enhanced with white subway tile with charcoal grout, and a tile accent above the new induction top stove creating a new focal point to the kitchen. 

In addition to the new cabinets we also updated lighting above the sink, island and under upper cabinets as well as added new floors throughout to modernize the space. 

AFTER

At the same time that the kitchen was being updated we also updated the trim work for all doors and windows and did a complete overhaul on the existing fireplace in the adjoined family room.

Normandy Park Reno | Before & After

Well, the past year has been a crazy one and I am excited to final spent the time I want on the design I LOVE! And what better way to start this off but with a great before and after post. Recently I had the pleasure of working with one of my favorite couples. They were buying a new house and although we did a complete reno to the main living space and kitchen they didn't want to start from scratch when it came to the formal living and dining spaces. I love to call this a “Room Re-Design” and it is one of my favorite design challenges. With a limited budget I shopped for the missing pieces to turn this joined living/dining space into a welcoming entrance into the family’s home.

BEFORE

Not all rooms have to start from scratch. For the living room I used their original sofa, pair of side chairs and end tables- plus I stole the coffee table from the family room since we replaced that with an ottoman. The addition of draperies, a large rug, lamps for the end tables, accent pillows and using/arranging some photos and accessories on the wall brought this room together and it was finally defined. Since you walk directly into the formal living room it was important to create a “entry” which was done with a perfect little demilune table, round mirror, a few accessories and an existing lamp.

For the formal dining room the couple wanted to use their sentimental family table and with a pair of new host chairs for each end this family table was updated. Draperies on the windows and a new buffet to ground the custom made wine rack (made by the couple) and this space was transformed.

If you are looking for a update in your home and don’t feel like starting from scratch don't worry, it's possible and I would love to help. Sometimes all you need is a fresh pair of eyes and a few key pieces to completely makeover your room.
