A kitchen remodel – Before & After

Sometimes after a kitchen remodel, you forget the “before” look because the “after” is so beautiful. That’s what this homeowner discovered as she enjoys her newly renovated kitchen.

Before kitchen remodel
Before: Dated with constricted traffic flow

After kitchen remodel
After: A more open space & expanded island

 The Oak Ridge home was due a kitchen remodel. The cabinetry was worn and countertops dated. The homeowner also wanted to change the traffic flow for a more open space. A door to an adjoining room was moved and a pass-through cut for a more open feel. The L-shape of the counter was removed and the sink relocated under the pass-through.

 Before: Dated cabinets, sink & door relocated & multi-tiered island

After kitchen remodel
After:
A mix of finishes, lots of storage & more open flow

When selecting cabinetry, the homeowner knew she wanted a light color but looked to the expertise of Modern Supply’s design team for their recommendations. After looking at several options, plans were drawn and selections finalized.

StarMark Cabinetry was chosen for their superior construction, quality of finishes and selection of door styles and finishes. The primary cabinets are maple finished in buttercream with a chocolate glaze. Sounds good enough to eat!

A bit skeptical, the homeowner agreed to the suggestion of a second finish for the island. The same door style was used but in cherry with a toffee finish and chocolate glaze. She’s thrilled with the outcome and it complements the buttercream finish. Both finishes are pulled together with a gorgeous granite countertop.

Little extras add so much in for a more polished look and extra convenience. Light rail below the cabinets help conceal under counter lighting; crown rail finishes the cabinet tops; finished end panels match the doors for a refined look; corner drawer storage; spice racks; utensil drawer; and vertical storage for cookie sheets all maximize space and a finishing touch.

Pleased with the outcome, the family is enjoying the new kitchen and space arrangement. On to the next project…I believe there are workers on the deck today!
