This gorgeous kitchen was recently completed as part of our full Project Management Program. We helped this Geneseo couple from start to finish and the end result is beautiful. It was even featured on our television program, The Village Home Show. You can watch that episode by pressing play below.
While the Before image shown on the right may have a similar layout, there were many changes made to use this space in a whole new way. The soffits up above were removed to make more space for the new cabinets to stretch to the ceiling. Existing hardwood flooring was kept in place and by keeping the same footprint to the new design, there are no gaps in the new space.
The most innovative cabinet of the new space is found tucked into the corner. Just because your kitchen does not have the space to allow a “lazy susan” in the corner of the design does not mean it has to be an un-reachable area. A blind corner cabinet with a pull-out insert can turn an awkward space into an awesome use of space. These half-moon shaped shelves swing out and slide forward to full access of the area.
What ties the entire look together is the backsplash. This combination of ceramic tile and stainless steel is the perfect choice by these homeowners. Mosaic tiles can become very busy and distracting to an overall look, but this combination uses colors all within the same value of color. Installing it above the sink as well really completes the look as well.
A valance above the sink is expected, but one below the new china hutch really adds a furniture look to that portion of the wall. The “desk” area of the old kitchen is now a built-in china hutch with an appliance garage atop the counter that can keep piles and charging devices out of sight behind doors. Another way to give this area a furniture look is the “buffet” style base cabinet. Notice the two small drawers in the top section.
A standard depth refrigerator would look great in this new kitchen but see how this counter depth Whirlpool model sits nearly flush with the surrounding cabinets? A standard depth unit would project almost an added 6″ into the room. Even though this side x side refrigerator is a counter depth model it still boasts 25 cubic ft. of storage space and has exterior ice and water in the door.
The back of the dual-height peninsula in the new kitchen has been paneled with a custom look including applied doors. One of these doors is in fact operable making both corners of this narrow u-shaped kitchen fully accessible for storage.
The opposite side of this peninsula is home to a stainless steel dishwasher with an integrated control panel.
