6 weeks later and we are done with this kitchen remodel. Haven't placed any accessories yet but my client had a grand baby yesterday!!!! Whew we made it just in time!!!
This couple wanted a classy, clean and fresh look with little fuss. They have raised their kids in this home, paid for graduations, college and weddings, etc. etc. It was now time for them to get the kitchen they so desperately wanted.
(sorry for the fuzzy photo but I really wanted you to get the idea of the horrible before)
Took the cabinets to the ceiling, added crown molding and painted them a soft gray!
The stacked stone was the one thing that they were really scared about. It's now their FAVORITE thing about their kitchen.
The black ceramic back splash is out of this world. Pictures don't do it justice.
The granite and stacked stone are the shining stars in this kitchen!
My client started off very scared of change but moved forward trusting me each step of the way as we followed the design I put together, just for them. I was so proud of her! She says she was stretched way beyond what she thought she could do and she is incredibly glad she took those risks. She LOVES everything now and so does her husband.
We made the island round to give them more space and add some shape and interest.
The gold door handles will be changed soon to brushed bronze by the homeowner.
See what I mean about the stacked stone? It's like art!
All of her items she only uses once a year are stored up in the new cabinets.
Recessed lighting and pendants make everything feel up to date.
Ruthie Tip: Don't overdo the recessed lighting, it can make a kitchen feel busy!
Such a great little work space! This backsplash makes my heart stop every time I see it!
Good bye old lighting!
These wall sconces really add some beauty and character to the eating area and can be dimmed as needed for ambiance.
Furniture shopping is next.
We modified the mantel some by taking away the "fussy" molding. We painted the fireplace insert with heat resistant black paint. We didn't like the pink brick so we had it painted a similar color to the kitchen cabinets and then sanded them down. Instant change with paint! Dramatic don't you think? Amazing how much bigger the space feels now!
We adjusted the entertainment center to house a bigger TV. Painted and added new hardware.
It will look amazing when it's all accessorized.
Don't skimp on your hardware!
The laundry room and pantry got some extra attention too. Painted this wonderful color blue called "under the sea" by Sherwin Williams. This color is also in their pantry and behind their bookshelves. A mini bar will be installed underneath the counter.
The hardware matches the color of the walls in the kitchen which is right off the laundry room. Great way to bring the rooms together!
Great colorful pantry!
Their dining room got a transformation too! Gone with the old floral wallpaper and in with a powerful red that makes a statement when you walk in. Hardwood floors were installed throughout the entire home all the way into the master bedroom!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
Next, we are on to a big install this Friday. Installing brand new drapes, furniture and accessories for another wonderful client. Her entire downstairs will be transformed! I'm so excited and feeling blessed that I get to do what I absolutely love!
