We started with a really lovely base kitchen, though a little outdated for the clients. The layout wasn’t the best use of space, and the maple cabinets were getting stale. So we made something more modern and on-trend with this white and stainless steel kitchen.
We expanded the kitchen into an L-shaped layout with a new, smaller island. Custom white shaker cabinets with glass inserts on upper cabinets (which are now ceiling height). All new stainless steel appliances (except the fridge which was repurposed). Industrial pendant lights over the island are supplemented by recessed overhead lights and under-cabinet lights. Expansive pantry/display closet built into the dining area. The microwave was moved to the island to save space and create a more streamlined cabinet span. The flooring is 5’ white oak planks. Backsplash throughout the entire kitchen, which ceramic subway in a herringbone layout. Separate cooktop and oven, the cooktop is gas and the oven is electric. White quartz countertop, matching the surround of the fireplace in the adjacent living room. The island has electrical outlets and a switch for the kitchen lights. Although the new island is about half the size of the original, additional seating has been added. The new L-shape with peninsula creates a passthrough with seating for entertaining. Large single bowl undermount sink.
Huge increase in storage
