We’re wrapping up 2019 with another kitchen remodel reveal! Our kitchen and bath designer, Claire, worked with her clients to transform their kitchen with a new design and higher quality cabinetry. Claire named this kitchen “Wonderfully Walnut!”
The clients built their home back in 2004, and the quality of the cabinetry their builder provided wasn’t what they expected. We are so glad they found us to give them beautiful new cabinetry, improved functionality, and an enjoyable design experience.
Thanks to our wonderful photographer Scott Amundson for these beautiful photos of the completed project!
The basis and starting point for this kitchen design was updated cabinetry. Secondly, the clients wanted the kitchen to fit with the style of the rest of their home. They also loved the color and grain of walnut cabinetry and wanted to integrate it into their new design. To match the existing door and window casing, Decor Cabinet Company created a custom paint color match for the clients’ painted cabinets.
To kick off the design process, Claire asked very detailed questions about how they use their kitchen. The clients felt that their current kitchen didn’t make the best use of the available space, and Claire took this into careful consideration in her new design. What she found was that a completely new layout was not necessary; rather, she could accommodate her clients’ storage needs by customizing cabinet sizes, heights and accessories, and moving only the refrigerator.
A few other notable design details:
- The island size increased for more cooking and countertop space
- The fridge was moved to the sink wall to allow for a more efficient work flow. This is important for a functional kitchen design!
- A pantry was a must – you see it in the large, walnut storage cabinets with pocket doors. We are seeing these pocket door storage cabinets a lot lately! Claire listened to her clients’ needs and designed a coffee station on one side and used the other side for utility storage, the microwave and other small appliances. There are also roll-out drawers in the lower cabinets for dry goods and food storage
- The homeowners loved their new brass hardware finishes which paired perfectly with the creamy paint color and warm walnut
The clients rave about their high quality cabinets and improved kitchen design. (And we really loved their passion for functional cabinetry!) Claire’s expertise in listening to her clients’ wants and needs resulted in a beautiful, warm and most importantly, functional kitchen for a wonderful family.
