Karen & Mike’s Kitchen

Project Description

Karen & Mike purchased a home where the previous owners band-aided the builder’s kitchen by installing new countertops, sink & backsplash before listing their home to make it look better for selling. As the new homeowners quickly discovered the layout was not optimal and the cabinetry was substandard.

The seldom-used desk was removed as was the partial wall dividing the family room and the kitchen. Since the ceiling height in this home was 108” tall, transom cabinetry was designed into the space to store less-used items in the previously unused space. A secondary area was created to house a wine-fridge and cabinet off to the side of the primary work space.

The selections in this space were Dynasty Transom Cabinets in the Loring Door Style, Oyster paint with Cognac glaze. They chose sculptural glass pendants for over the island creating visual interest; they also have recessed lights and undercabinet lights in this space. They carried the same hardwood from the family room, through the kitchen and into the rest of the first floor for a clean uninterrupted look.
