As spring approaches, more and more homeowners are getting ready to start renovating the most important room in the house; the kitchen. You might recall seeing an inspiring ” Before and After Home Renovation” done by Restyle Design, LLC,on Home Bunch earlier this year and I am truly happy to have this talented designer on the blog again to share this kitchen renovation! Here, the designer Susan Kosonocky shares more insights of this reno and some impressive “before and after” pictures. Read on!
“This client wanted to update their dated kitchen and give it a more modern feel. We started with a revised cabinet layout, first enlarging the island to allow for more seating and additional storage. We then moved the double ovens to the refrigerator wall and replaced the hanging microwave with a micro drawer on the island. We changed the refrigerator to a cabinet depth model, eliminated the unused desk area to create a clean look on that functional wall. We took away the awkward corner and created a small beverage station with open shelving and deco tile to create some visual relief and interest. We changed out the electric cooktop for gas cooktop and added a sleek range hood to modernize that elevation. We went with white cabinets on the perimeter and a grey textured melamine on the island and topped everything with a gorgeous Britannica quartz from Cambria. We swapped out the dated pendant lights for two larger metal pendants to complete the look.” – Susan Kosonocky of Restyle Design, LLC.
Ceiling Treatment: Drywall, painted Benjamin Moore White Dove.
How about this “before and after” kitchen transformation?! Incredible, right?! Start pinning!!! 🙂
Notice that the pantry door was replaced for a door with glass inset to allow natural light into the pantry – similar here.
The kitchen wasn’t terrible before but it was feeling outdated and the kitchen layout was not as functional as it is now.
New Kitchen Island Dimensions: 77W x 90L.
Perimeter cabinets are European style custom cabinets in shaker style painted in Everett White.
Beverage station tile is Honeycomb Asian Statuary Marble with Athens Gray Line.
The floating shelves are custom to match the kitchen island – similar here.
Double Wall Oven: Bosh.
Walls are Sherwin Williams Light French Grey and trim is Benjamin Moore White Dove.
Faucet Sink: Blanco single bowl composite sink in Metallic Gray – undermount – (currently on sale!)
Kitchen Faucet: Brizo Pull Out Spray Faucet in Brilliance Stainless.
Countertops are Cambria Brittanica (the designer used two slabs for island and seamed white part so you can’t see the seam). On the island they did a 6cm edge detail and a pencil edge on perimeter.
Island cabinets are flat panel textured melamine in color Sedici.
Cabinet Hardware: Berenson Elevate Brushed Nickel 160mm pull.
This is a modern and fresh way to have a kitchen island with wine rack and shelves.
The kitchen opens to a newly-painted breakfast nook.
The designer added a new rug and new lighting to the breakfast nook to tie with the newly-renovated kitchen.
Dining Chairs: here.
Dining Table: here – similar.
