Working Wednesday – Kitchen Before & After

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!
