Fluorescent lighting, mismatched appliances, outdated cabinets, and old vinyl flooring conspire to keep this sallow kitchen from realizing its full potential. A dividing wall not only separates the room from the adjacent living space, but also creates an isolated and uninviting feel.
Eliminating the dividing wall opens the kitchen (now defined by haystack tile flooring) to the greater living area, while rearranging the floor plan maximizes every inch of the space.
Soft recessed lighting showcases new shaker cabinets and a collection of now-unified stainless steel appliances. Engineered quartz countertops deliver an attractive, scratch- and stain- free surface. And a colorful tile backsplash provides visual interest that’s both practical and easy to clean.
Finally, an improved layout makes room for a large island that not only doubles the kitchen’s counter space and storage areas, but also creates an inviting focal point and a place where friends and family will gather for many years to come.
The homeowners were super-pleased with the result of their kitchen remodel. We’re not surprised. It’s a transformation you have to see to believe!
