There’s nothing more inviting than a well-planned, beautiful kitchen— it is one of our passions here at Urbanology! A trend we have been loving lately is the warm, laid back feel of transitional farmhouse. So we were thrilled when our client came to us with a Pinterest board chock full of the look for their new kitchen. We could not wait to get started! To keep the budget in-line we kept the original plumbing and came up with creative solutions for the cabinet and venthood layout.
Notice the orange “glow” and dark corners of the old kitchen.
The lackluster granite countertops with dated cabinet stain made this kitchen look like a standard, cookie-cutter home from the 90s.
Our clients wanted a dedicated coffee bar area. As you can see from the before pictures some built-ins were already there. We opened the space almost to the ceiling, added small pendants, created a small countertop and added custom shelving. We then had drawers built below for functional storage.
The original window in the breakfast area was not proportionate to the space so we designed a properly-sized window to compliment the kitchen and had a built-in bench made for seating and extra storage. Simple linen Roman shades finish out the breakfast room.
This kitchen remodel was a blast! The finished product is warm, friendly and full of personality. We really paid attention to every single detail and our client could not be more thrilled. And that makes us THRILLED!
