When the Layout Works, but it’s Time to Freshen Up
Sometimes you don't have to start from scratch. The kitchen layout works, storage is fine, but the finishes are not your style and are just a little tired. In this Stapleton kitchen, the homeowners wanted a larger island and fresher finishes. So we added a base cabinet and also wrapped the island with trim and added legs as the overhang was going to be too large to not have added support. The perimeter cabinets received undercabinet molding and crown before professional painting. The garage became the painter's paint booth for spraying all the doors. Quartz counters that look like polished marble, a new undermount sink and new Viking cooktop were the splurges here. We also added a new faucet, pendant lights and cabinetry hardware, and a beautiful 4x8 travertine subway tile back splash and woven window coverings.
Here are some of the details that made this kitchen remodel special.
And a very important change to the kitchen was opening it up to the dining room, allowing light from the southern-facing kitchen to pour into the dining room.
