before and after fun II.

Here are some Before and After pics of a kitchen remodel that we completed last week...

First I have to start out with a

these lovely clients had a horrible plumbing leak right
before they came to us for help, so these pictures show
the kitchen at its absolute worst with everything out of
the cabinets and piled around, so just keep that in
mind when you see these crazy before pics:

The Layout of the Kitchen/Dining area was not very functional for this family.
They needed more storage and
more countertop space, but wanted to keep
as much dining seating as possible.

There wasn't a good definition of space and the layout was akward.
There was a peninsula that juted out into the kitchen and had hardly any storage in it.


The Design Plan:
My client wanted something with fun color and
touch of contemporary personality to liven up her traditional kitchen...
  • The Peninsula was removed and in it's place a new custom pantry was built.
  • The cabinetry was extended and a large bar with oodles of extra storage and seating for four was installed.
  •  6" x 6" tile with a decorative insert replaced the laminate backsplash
  •  A "granite look" laminate with beveled edges relaced the old laminate. This is a great alternative when you are on a budget.
  •  Antique Brass Cabinetry hardware was replace with Oil Rubbed Bronze knobs.
  • The fluorescent fixture was removed to make way for recessed lighting.
  • Three Oil Rubbed Bronze Pendants with an awesome Chisled Turqoise Detail hang over the new bar.
  • The old cabinet finish was freshened up with a darker chocolate brown stain.
