A goal for this kitchen remodel was to respect the history and architecture of the home's late-1800 design. Katie wanted to keep the integrity of the home and incorporate classic and durable materials with an emphasis on quality craftsmanship and interesting details. The homeowners wanted to maximize their counter space, so all appliances are concealed in appliance cabinets, like this espresso cupboard! This not only keeps the appliances clean and out of the way, but allows for countertops to be used to their full potential.
In addition, for storage purposes, these kitchens offer optimum amount of storage area. It is created both below and above the working counter. The wall mounted cabinets and cabinetry below the counter blend perfectly with décor and serves the purpose. Straight kitchens offer easy workflow in the given space. These single stylish units are very flexible and allow scope for alterations or extensions. In this type of kitchen, integration of heavy and large appliances can be planned easily to offer more working space.
To start, I needed a vision board: I spent hours looking at paint samples because paint is the one thing that can instantly transform a space – make it brighter, happier, even more inspired. I wanted a neutral color that felt clean and could take on fun accents, plus, if we ever sold the home could be a blank space for others. I went with a Behr paint in Ancient Stone – a blue-based, cool gray (did I mention I love the color gray?). We spent about $250 on paint and another $150 on spackle.
