Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
The homeowner loved the blue and white in her kitchen, but not the dated feel, layout and usability of the space. We were able update this kitchen with classic details and modern elements, keeping usability of the space in mind. We combined both blue and white finishes on her cabinetry and warmed the cool color pallet with champagne brass fixtures and walnut floating shelves. Complicated design elements include increasing the walk space around the island while simultaneously increasing the size of the island and maintaining the cooktop where the homeowner preferred. We were able to accomplish all this! We replaced an existing standard closet pantry door with double operational matching cabinetry doors for a clean seamless feel to the space. All drawers incorporate Revashelf interior organization components. Updated the feel and style reduced the number of upper cabinets, yet the overall storage was increased with added island length and smart storage solutions. The homeowner was thrilled with her new up dated “Blue and White” space.

All cabinetry 100% fabricated in our shop. Solid Maple Face Frame cabinet fronts, doors and trim.
