Well, it’s been an 8-month process, but I am SUPER excited to announce that the kitchen renovation I started in February is complete!
When I first met with my client, she knew exactly what she wanted — a bright, functional white and gray kitchen. I love a woman who knows what she wants.
I knew right away that white shaker style cabinets, gray subway tile, and satin nickel knobs were a must. My client’s other must-haves were ample lighting, more storage space, and more countertop prep space (she’s quite the cook and baker). The entire kitchen, except for the faucet and appliances, had to go.
After measuring and planning the space, I came up with a design that offered exactly what my client wanted and needed. The extra storage and counter space was achieved by adding a peninsula and a custom pantry. I added a breakfast bar at her window, creating additional seating. I made a spot for her cookbooks, too, eliminating the need for the bookcase, which added too much clutter.
We discussed and selected new vinyl flooring, a beautiful farmhouse sink, smokey gray glass backsplash tile, quartz countertop, custom cabinets, a smokey gray paint, recessed lighting, and the satin nickel hardware. Of course, a rendering was developed so my client could see our vision for her new kitchen laid out before beginning the renovation.
Because this is an older house, we had to keep all existing walls in tact. That’s okay; I still was able to provide the functionality that was needed. If you know anything about older houses, you know that there’s a lot of ground settling over the years. This, at times, causes shifting of the floors and walls, which in turn gave the contractor a run for his money. He hung in there like a true champ and got the job done, and I must say, he did an amazing job with the installation. The kitchen is beautiful. My client is pleased and so am I. I really love how much bigger and brighter the kitchen is, now.
And now, the AFTER...
