This kitchen remodel was the result of a lot of discussion. These homeowners were torn between moving into a newer home, with a kitchen they already liked, or undergoing a large remodel project in the current home. In the end, would it be everything they wanted for the money? They decided to stay in their current home, and go for the remodel. Since the kitchen was located in essentially the middle of the home, with a room on either side, we were able to absorb the space from their current dining room. This allowed us to expand the kitchen footprint and almost double the size of the kitchen. The dining room was then relocated into the other sitting space with a fireplace. As far as design goes, these homeowners had a farmhouse feel in mind. This is where the black and white color palette emerged. We included Quartz countertops in two different colors to add to the personalization of this kitchen. We contrasted white subway tile with dark grout to expand on the dark perimeter countertops. Plus, darker grout actually helps to hide daily kitchen grime. To further emphasize on the contrast, we trimmed the updated and large window in black, making it a focal point for the space. A beautiful large wood hood was installed, and the Mrs. finally got the apron front sink she had always wanted. Furthermore, all new appliances were installed as well as the addition of a beverage center in the island. To tie the space together, we installed all new flooring throughout the first floor for continuity. And maybe most important, we made sure to include seating on the back of the island (essential with three children) for snacking, homework time, or any family gathering!
