Subtle & Striking

Sometimes you just need a face lift. Not everything needs to be different to be new, not everything has to change to upgrade your kitchen. A few small changes and updates can do the trick. Upgrading cabinetry can feel daunting. There is a lot that goes into a kitchen renovation. But it doesn’t have to be entirely different to be new.

The transformation of this home is both subtle and striking. As far as design goes, not a whole lot was changed. They were able to move the fridge, it was formerly perpendicular to the rest of the lay out along the back wall, next to the door. By stretching out the kitchen a little, we were able to fit the fridge against the wall with the rest of the cabinetry. Moving the fridge against the wall helps keep the layout clean and keeps the kitchen feeling open.

The kitchen leads to a peninsula before opening into a dining area. Along the wall is a desk for getting work done.

The kitchen leads to a peninsula and then opens to vaulted ceilings and a dining area. There is also a desk for added work space and organization.
