This Eastern Shore kitchen remodel is one of our newest projects. The homeowners were looking to transform their outdated kitchen into one that was modern and stylish. They updated the cabinets, countertops, appliances, island, and sink. In addition, they included a window to brighten up the room and built a TV into the cabinets to save counter space. Although the original kitchen blueprint remained the same, the renovation has completely transformed the look and feel of the kitchen.
The Renovation Process (Before)
The homeowners chose to install perimeter cabinets using Dynasty by Omega. They chose the Madrid door style, Cherry wood, and a truffle stain. As for the island cabinets, they wanted the Madrid door style and Maple wood and then opted for the Pearl paint. The countertops are quartz and the island is granite.
Before the renovation started, the homeowners selected Jenn-Air appliances, including an induction cooktop and built-in microwave oven with speed cook. Once the construction was underway, we removed the bulkheads to allow new cabinets that extended to the ceiling with two PC crown molding. This provided a cleaner, more modern look along with added storage for items that are occasionally used.
We also swapped the pantry and refrigerator location to open up space as you enter the kitchen from the garage. The redesign also gave the refrigerator a built-in look. Then, we moved the cooktop to the corner and installed stainless steel Zephyr range hood and beveled subway tile in a herringbone pattern. The backsplash and new cooktop turned the most used area of the kitchen into a design feature.
The addition of an enlarged island allows extra seating for up to four people. Moreover, island cabinets include two full-sized waste baskets for recycling and standard waste. The new farmhouse sink from Kohler not only looks and functions well but the drain is positioned at the rear corner. The plumbing in the cabinet below is consolidated to the back corner providing much more storage. Last, the built-in TV not only looks great but also reduces counter clutter. Plus, the drawer below the TV contains USB outlet for small personal device charging.
The Final Product (After)
The kitchen finished product was very successful and it is one that the family can be proud of. The kitchen is more modern, aesthetically pleasing, and functional than ever.
