Although I no longer provide full service residential design, I do consult on projects for several general contractors and architects. One such contractor I LOVE to work with is Wes Harding of Harding Construction and Sustainable Solutions. His clients love him too, hence him and his team (including moi) being invited to a client’s house for dinner to celebrate a recently completed kitchen remodel. And celebrate they should, because look where this project started…
This is before. Isn’t that a weird location for the sink? Not to mention the majorly blah nature of that white and beige scheme!
So look what we did….
Talk about a 180°! The clients had already picked out their appliances, and knew exactly what they wanted for the cabinet color (off a picture frame they had, no less). My task was to figure out a way to tuck it all in there – without having it come off as crowded or jumbled looking – and to integrate other materials in so the kitchen still felt open and light. It was quite the puzzle, but I think we pulled it off. Cork flooring (which I promise is less yellow looking in person), composite countertops, and glass backsplash tile bring a lot of color and brightness into the space, not to mention sustainability.
We even managed to fit a full sized washer and dryer into the space.
Now THAT was a trick! Kudos to Keith, the cabinet maker, for making real what I could only sketch out on paper.
Thanks for visiting!
