From Cramped to Open

This kitchen suffered from aging, plain cabinets and a boring formica countertop. When combined with a hanging light fixture the effect was a narrow space, even with the pass-through countertop opposite the sink.

Detailed Interiors was tasked with creating a more modern, updated space that felt more open and made a smooth transition into the living area, which was also dated.

The result is a bright, open and airy kitchen that flows well into the living area and allows more natural light into the kitchen.

Project Scope:

Our crews removed a non-load-bearing divider wall and totally redid the floor and cabinetry. We installed custom cabinets and moulding, along with quartz countertops and an under-mount sink. All new lighting was also installed, with fixtures to support general, task and ambiance lighting. A new appliance package completes the look and functionality.

Special Considerations:

Color choices and finishes make this small space feel much larger than original. The schedule was tight and the entire project took less than two months, start-to-finish.

Under Cabinet lighting illuminates tasks and gives additional options at night.
Floor tile set on a diagonal adds style and visually opens the narrow space.
Recessed lighting gives a clean look, enhanced by the countertop choice and stainless appliances.
White, recessed panel cabinets are a modern look, topped with crown moulding and sporting stainless hardware.
A tile backsplash and granite countertop are easy to clean and add contrasting highlights for a stylish look.
Contrasting paint color helps define the laundry area without overpowering the clean look of the overall kitchen space.
