Contemporary Kitchen Before & After

For many of us, the  kitchen is the heart of a home. Family is often centered around this room during the holidays, at night when everyone is finally home to regroup for dinner, and for special occasions like birthdays. Kitchens are one place where clients tend to have super specific needs according to how they cook, what activities they do in there [i.e. lots of baking, family meetings, workstations for people who work from home, etc.], and what they need stored. 

We recently had a friend/client that came to us wanting to renovate their kitchen. The goals: 
  1. The most hidden storage space possible 
  2. A more useful island
  3. Updated finishes to brighten the room
  4. Cover pantry and laundry room area with cabinetry for a cohesive look
Here's how we did it:
  1.  Modern Shaker cabinet in a crisp white finish
  2. Streamlined stainless cabinet pulls
  3. New stainless appliances [including an exposed venthood]
  4. Streamlined soffit
  5. Marble brick-pattern mosaic backsplash
  6. Caesarstone countertops
  7. Darker island paint 
  8. Large 3-bin sink for optimum use
  9. Added more can lighting
  10. Ipad docking station for music/television

Here are a few before & afters:

light, bright, and airy..just the way I like it.
happy hump day, yo.
