BEFORE & AFTER Atlanta Kitchen $75k
Here is a design statement if you would like to read more about the how/what and why of the design with the homeowner.
This kitchen was small, inefficient and incredibly outdated. The home is mid-century style, so the first objective was to have the interior flow with the overall theme. Due to lack of options of the small space with numerous doorways, the walls to the laundry room were removed and the washer and dryer were relocated to another area of the home. The sink was relocated to the larger existing window on the rear side of the house (old laundry area), and the old sink window was closed to offer additional storage and a location for the new professional range.
While the floor plan was enlarged by 30%, the width of the room was still a major challenge in the design. There simply was not adequate space to allow for a large island; and definitely no room for an eat-in kitchen. The solution was a short peninsula design along with a small, shallow floating island to fill the awkward floor space in the middle of the kitchen. While the walk ways are more narrow than recommended, the clients felt it was worth the sacrifice to gain the added counter space that aids as an ideal prep area and transfer between work stations.
To achieve a modern look, streamlined elements were used throughout. The dark, flat panel maple cabinetry set the stage to display the sophisticated glass tile backsplash and frosted glass cabinet doors, which carry warm hues of green. The raised glass counter top and island were designed with stainless steel columns to help keep the visual flow while enhancing the balance of metal with the appliances and toe kick.
Xenon under-cabinet lighting, recessed cans, and sleek halogen pendants and sconces were strategically placed to enhance the elegant features, in addition to provide high quality task lighting. Furthermore, to improve the natural light source, the existing single door to the patio was increased to a double French door. The hardwood floors replaced the old tile, adding warmth to the room. And finally, the island received an exotic Zebrawood counter top creating a focal point that united the dark cabinetry and oak floors.
