This kitchen is a great example of how you can completely transform a kitchen without completely gutting the space. Here are some of the before and after pictures:
The once very yellow kitchen was transformed using a Benjamin Moore white with gray undertones for the main cabinetry. The colors were inspired by the new granite countertops and backsplash.
The unused desk area was transformed into a wine and coffee bar. Notice the addition of the tower with the cross hatched mullion doors and antique mirror insets. New crown was added and a decorative skirting detail under the upper cabinets. This dresses up the bottom edge of the cabinets and hides the addition of under cabinet lighting.
The lower cabinets were rebuilt to accommodate a wine cooler and additional storage. The finish on this piece and island is a distressed, multi=layered, glazed technique called La Paloma that pulls out all of the gray tones in the granite. Your granite and backsplash usually serve as the inspiration for the colors in the cabinetry.
The once blank-sided island was dressed up using the “X” detail inspired by the doors. This is a perfect example of taking existing cabinetry and adding moldings to make it into a completely new center piece!
A barn door was designed and custom finished to complete the look in this gorgeous space!
