Winner, National NARI Award
With a fairly modest budget, this young, single professional had big dreams for her first kitchen remodel. Upon our initial meeting, the priorities were clear: open up the crowded space impeded by half walls, beams and soffits, maximize countertop areas, provide more organized storage for food and dishware and use sustainable materials whenever possible.
Warm, rich maple wood cabinets were used with a recessed door profile to create well-defined lines within the space. The cork floor was chosen because of its warm look, comfort and sustainable qualities. A colorful blend of olive mosaic glass tile was used as a splash of color with complimentary violet gray paint on the walls. All of the old wainscoting was eliminated for a contemporary look. Violet colors were also carefully picked for the “starburst” bulb on the low voltage pendants above the sink and dining table. The clean, “Iceberg” colored countertop is a man-made quartz product and the perfect choice for an eco conscious client. Together, these materials provide for a nice mix of texture while making for a stylish, and substantive kitchen.
