Things have been crazy busy here, so I’m catching my breath before things kick back up again (which will be any minute now). So I thought it would be a good time to share my latest client kitchen project. I’m really happy with how this one turned out, and it’s been a lot of fun to watch it come together.
The great part about this project is that so many other elements have already been updated, so the painting of the cabinets was the icing on the cake. The homeowners had already added a new island, granite, appliances and a tile backsplash. The only outstanding items on their to-do list are refinishing the hardwood floors and painting the walls.
Let’s get to the before and after photos, shall we?
Before – the kitchen is a great size, with lots of natural light and a gorgeous island. If you can imagine, the island used to end near the cabinet next to the dishwasher, so the island extension alone has transformed how this kitchen functions.
And here it is now – the homeowner commented on how the backsplash pops now that the cabinets are done, and the beautiful appliances really stand out as well. Even the granite takes on a new look.
Of course, they had to live through this:
And this (my amazing Zipwall that makes fast work of tarping off an area in minutes). I can’t tell you how much I’m loving this product! I can take it down in minutes as well, and then set it up again in my basement work area as a spray booth. Another product that leaves me thinking, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
But in the end, it’s totally worth it.
The homeowner just loves how they work so well with the colors and finishes in the kitchen.
The coordinating pulls have the same square detail as the knobs and are a perfect compliment to the black and copper accents they have incorporated.
So there you have it! Another builder grade kitchen transformation at the fraction of the cost of installing new cabinets. These transformations never get old for me, and I love seeing the happiness these changes bring to the homeowners. Fun stuff, I tell you.
Now I’ve started to transform this kitchen (with another one scheduled after that!). Life is good.
