My clients wanted to completely change their galley kitchen and create a great room in their home. They also wanted to do the entire project themselves! I created 2 different options for them to chose from and they chose to have an island kitchen.
To create a wall for the range and microwave hood, we had to close off the doorway to the front door. Now guests would not walk into the house straight into the kitchen. We also had to relocate the door into the garage to maximize the window wall in the kitchen. Removing the wall between the kitchen and living room made such a dramatic difference in how large the space felt.
To keep costs down, non-custom cabinetry sizes were used in the design. This can be challenging when you want to maximize every inch of space, but we made it work perfectly!
Stellar Snow Silestone quartz countertops were chosen to help brighten the space and add a little sparkle! The grey blue cabinet color really brings out the blue glass flecks in the countertops.
After much debate (so many choices when it comes to back splashes), my clients chose a beveled white subway tile with a dark grey grout to add some extra detail, but not detract from the counters and cabinetry.
LVP (LVT) vinyl plank flooring was installed throughout the kitchen and great room. To finish the space, 3 elegant pendant lights were added - 2 above the island and 1 at the sink.
My clients did a phenomenal job of this kitchen. Painting all the cabinets, hanging all the tile, installing the flooring, demolition - they really put in serious sweat equity and it paid off! Simply gorgeous! What a pleasure to work with.
