If you follow me on Instagram you have seen a few sneak peeks of this dramatic before and after kitchen reveal. I also styled the kitchen for my post on Eight Easy Steps to Style Your Kitchen Like a Pro. Here is what the kitchen looks like now.
The kitchen before was confined to a dark little space whose footprint was smaller than where the island ends now.
The entire house was filled with dark paneling, dark ceilings, and shag carpet. The talented Hattersley Construction team opened up the entire space to create a large kitchen and family space. I will do a second post on the family area soon.
My clients chose a simple shaker style cabinet built by the talented Chris Cardenas of Shoreline Woodworks.
The house is nestled in the trees and has beautiful views so we wanted the interior color scheme to defer to the view rather than fight it.
Here is another before view of the cramped kitchen space. Don’t you love the pretty wallpaper and counters?
The same view after the remodel with the beautiful views of the surrounding trees.
The beams were original to the space. The uber-talented Brian Ford and his crew, from Stephen Ford Painting, faux finished the beams to give them the character they were lacking and whitewashed the natural wood ceilings. The large beam seen below had to be added for structure. The skylights were added for additional light.
Everyone on the job loved working with this couple and their adorable kids.
They wanted a family friendly space to cook and entertain. Counter stools are Palecek Hermosa available through Cindy Hattersley Design.
The barndoor on the left separates this space from the dining living area (not yet complete).
The counters are quartzite (the most durable of all surfaces). They are pricey but this young family made them a priority for their beauty and durability.
If you are interested in any of the items used in this kitchen. I have included those that are available in my Shop the Look below.
