This was a budget friendly project that yielded million dollar results. This kitchen was looking tired and dated but the thirty year old cabinets were still in good shape and the client asked that we retain them. New cabinet door and drawer fronts on the existing cabinet boxes was the solution. We added new quartz counter tops, a new tile back splash and several new appliances.
The original kitchen had wall cabinets on all four walls, which made the kitchen feel closed in. By eliminating some cabinets and replacing them with open shelving, the kitchen felt much more open. The shelves also gave the homeowner a place to display her white china collection.
The biggest challenge with this kitchen was that the floor was not level in the hundred plus year old home. The existing tile floor was cracked in multiple places due to the settling of the house. The clients did not want wood floors and new tile was going to be equally problematic. I solved the problem by suggesting cork flooring. Soft and back friendly, it turned out to be the perfect choice.
New roman shades in the client’s favorite color added the needed pop of color to bring life and personality to this white kitchen.
