Their Kitchen Remodel
Siene & Kentay’s tired kitchen needed some attention. The large and heavy stone covered hood vent paired with the dark stained cabinets sucked the life and light out of the room.
One thing that struggled was lighting. Even with the walls of windows the dark features just absorbed the light.
We started by using a soft white shaker cabinet called Dove White as the main cabinet color in the kitchen. We removed the stone from the hood and the dark slate from the backsplash.
We also removed the dated shape of the peninsula by squaring it off. By doing this, the new walking area improved and allows for transitioning between rooms.
The oddly shaped island in the center struggled to give them the storage they needed. They were large cabinets, but items usually got stuck or lost.
After determining that Siene wanted to prepare food here, we opted to do deep drawer cabinets to store a lot of her prep items at arm’s reach.
The Island and bar cabinets are in a natural stain called Fawn. This color complimented the existing slate flooring. We also lined the hood in trim that matches the island.
The island is also waterfalled on both sides with quartz from Arizona Tile called Ivory White Honed.
Just off the kitchen there was a bar, however it was hidden from all rooms. We decided that we would move the bar to a more prominent place in the home, and the existing would be turned into an appliance pantry.
A place for the coffee maker, microwave, and other smaller appliance storage.
We finished the kitchen with a simple backsplash in a lantern white mosaic with a natural tan grout. The door hardware, faucet from Delta and the new pendant lighting are all in the stainless family allowing for depth and consistency.
The new bar features a Sub-Zero wine column with refrigerated storage below. The upper lit glass cabinets offer a chance to showcase stemware and spirits.
This custom cabinet install allows the wood to shine and offers storage.
Lastly, the additional lighting installed in all areas now is controllable. Siene and Kentay have full control and can direct the light and how much is used.
When they want a night in, they can turn down the lights and relax. In their new updated family room in front of a newly integrated modern fireplace.
Laundry Room Remodeling
Jokingly, Siene called her laundry room the Christmas Box. We traded the red and green wallpaper for paint called Drift of Mist from Sherwin Williams.
The new white cabinetry offers a lot of storage, and a dedicated folding station was integrated for easy transitioning between loads of laundry.
Entertainment Wall Makeover
The homeowners wanted to create a modern, brighter area to share with the family.
They chose a Landscape Pro Multi 56" electric linear fireplace and asked us to tile around the fireplace up to the ceiling.
