We began this kitchen remodel with a really great space. The original footprint of the kitchen was well arranged but the finishes didn’t match the stature of the home. The kitchen needed something more substantial.

The soffits were removed, along with the large fluorescent light above the existing petite island. A desk next to the refrigerator was to be redesigned along with the large pantry. In addition, the built-ins flanking the fireplace in the adjacent family room were updated to match the kitchen cabinetry.

The results of the remodel are truly marvelous. We installed custom Amish cabinetry in maple wood with an Autumn Haze finish. The upper cabinets now extend to the ceiling and are topped with a timeless two piece crown molding. In addition to the cabinetry expanding upwards, the cabinetry on the window wall was expanded into the eating area where a natural break occurred for a bump out housing entry to the back yard.

On the opposite wall, separated by a hallway, we dismissed the desk and pantry closet in favor of a double wall oven and expansive, efficient storage. The majority of this new storage has roll out shelves to reach the very back of deep storage. The cabinetry surrounding the refrigerator gives a built in effect for the appliances.

0050The built-ins on the fireplace wall in the adjoining family room are in the same wood type and finish. The elongated top shelf with equidistant shelves below really provide a clean line finish with just a little something different. Again, storage is enhanced with four enclosed cabinets at the base of the built-ins.

The counters were topped with gorgeous Solarius granite. The natural stone backsplash, glass accent tile, along with the brushed nickel hardware, complement for a beautiful finish.
