Classic Kitchen in Braden Woods

Classic Kitchen in Braden Woods

After many years in their home, this Braden Woods couple had updated everything except the kitchen. We helped them rectify that. Over the years, warm wood tones had permeated the rest of the décor so it only made sense to carry that same feel into the rejuvenated kitchen area.

The layout of the old kitchen made it seem small and confined. By simply removing the peninsula barrier, we were able to create more visual space and bring much needed natural lighting into the dining area. Raising the drop ceiling allowed for additional storage and magnified the formerly tight space even more. Desiring a focal point when looking in from the living area, the small wine rack doubles as both decoration and convenient storage.

Selecting a raised panel cabinet in warm wood continued the classic comfort the homeowners had achieved with previous updates. StarMark Cabinetry’s Alder Hanover doorstyle in Toffee stain was the only real contender in the homeowners’ eyes. Topped with Zanzibar granite, the subtle ruby-chocolate tones in both stone and wood were allowed highlight one another. A simple 1×4 tri-toned ceramic tile splash reemphasized that chocolaty theme and gave the room a slight oomph. Timeless, stainless steel appliances from Samsung completed the subtle yet stylish look the homeowners were after. Now the kitchen is as current and comfortable as the rest of their home.

Scott was great! After he saw my kitchen & measured, he came up with a design that afforded me more space. He worked with my schedule, answered all questions. The whole process went like clockwork. I was very pleased! Having never gone through a remodel before, it was awesome. Not having a kitchen for a month was a challenge, but worth it. From start to finish, my kitchen has turned into a showcase. I am so pleased, I even had 3 bathrooms remodeled as well. Again, Scott came through with a minimum amount of hardship. When friends have come in and saw what was done, they were impressed & I told them who did it. So, I’m making sure people know your name…
