Elevated from beautiful to drop dead GORGEOUS! A Kitchen Update

Before- beautiful kitchen.

before- busy counter tops, heavy dated hood
After- drop dead gorgeous kitchen (without totally redoing everything)!

after- lowered bar, added paneling to back of bar, redesigned hood, new light counter tops, new back splash

before- the raised bar really closes kitchen in from nook & family room
after- lowered bar opens kitchen up, new hood really improves cook station

after- open airy and bright up to date kitchen

before- beautiful
after- GORGEOUS!

A few years ago, we updated this house by removing the heavy, dark faux finishes, furniture and window treatments.  The homeowners are young and wanted a fresh  updated traditional house. Working with Kingon Homes the breakfast nook was added to give the family more space.  At the time of the original remodel we kept the existing kitchen (only painting). It is large, well laid out and bright. 

This season, the home owners decided it was time to update the kitchen. The cabinets and the layout still worked beautifully so we were able to keep them and just make a few modifications without having to do a whole new kitchen. We lowered the raised bar to counter height, changed the counter tops to a stunning quartzite, put in a chiseled marble subway tile back splash,  and added paneling to the back of the bar. The hood was taken down and a new one built to match cabinets with a beautiful new free standing range under it.

Check back soon- we will be posting more of our recent completed projects in the coming weeks!
