Smoke damaged this dated kitchen, and forced these homeowners to remodel and update their space.
Before, this space had all the markings of it’s original 1960s build – highlighted by vinyl countertops topping the wood patterned veneer cabinetry.
The counters were upgraded to a beautiful black and blue glitter flecked granite, and sat atop new cabinetry in a cheerful cornflower blue beadboard. The upper cabinets were replaced with open shelving in order to create a clean and streamlined look.
A blue glass tile backsplash was laid, and randomly inset with black glass pieces, to pick up on both the colors of the cabinetry and the colors in the granite.
Before, in addition to being dated, the butcher block peninsula cut the room in half which hindered the functionality of the space – and the old white and gray linoleum made the floors look drab and dingy.
After, the peninsula was repositioned as a floating island, creating an open floor plan and allowing multiple cooks to maneuver their way through the room without bumping into each other. New terra cotta colored porcelain tile replaced the old linoleum, and brightened up the space.
With the island in it’s new place, we were able to create an eat-in kitchen, where guests and family members could sit and join in the conversation. Cookbooks and glassware were artfully arranged on the open shelving.
Dated appliances were a focal point pre-remodel.
Updated appliances, open shelving, a new backsplash, and beautiful cabinetry gave this area of the kitchen an instant face lift.
The finished renovation left this kitchen bright and airy – an enjoyable space to enjoy cooking in for years to come.
