This renovation was for a kitchen in Brookhaven area in Atlanta. Design by BeckySue Becker, CMKBD, CAPS.
The existing space was dark and dated, to say the least. The owners wanted to keep the same general footprint as they appreciated the peninsula giving some division from the living space. To increase some privacy, in addition to create more visual interest - the new design included a 42" high wall with bookcases and storage.Pot rack was removed and a skylight was added along with new white trim/recessed cans - changing this kitchen from a dark, crowded room to a bright cheerful space where the homeowners love to prepare meals and entertain friends.Cabinetry was designed to go to the ceiling -- making the 8' ceilings feel much taller than the previous design offered with the cabinets stopping at the dated 7' height.
A hutch was added with a pocket door at the center for mail, electronic docking station. A coffee station is also concealed behind pocket doors near the microwave/oven.Double ovens were moved from being next to the refrigerator to the adjacent wall to allow for a more functional corner (left of refrigerator).The cooktop was originally in the island with inadequate downdraft ventilation. New design it was moved to the wall delivering better prep area on each side in addition giving an opportunity to have a full island with dressed up features.
Cabinetry - custom private label by BSB. Project budget includes products and all remodeling/installation work completed by a Licensed Contractor.
