FAIRVIEW RENO: KITCHEN
We had so much fun working with our clients to transform their first house as newlyweds into a beautiful home. This historic property in Converse Heights was transformed by renovating the kitchen, bathrooms, and refinishing all of the original hardwood floors. We were able to keep some of the existing cabinetry in these spaces which goes to show that you can drastically transform spaces in your home using some of what you've got along with strategic changes. The goal was to make the home feel authentic and timeless to honor the age of the home but at the same time incorporate some of their styles with a few rustic touches here and there. We hope they love their home a much as we do!
This kitchen simply makes me smile. It's classic and clean and at the same time has a richness to it with bold pops of color. And the best part is that we were able to reuse the kitchen cabinets to save some serious money. Since the cabinets were in pretty good shape we simply had to touch up the paint and add new hardware in the dark oil-rubbed bronze finish for a bold contrast. We removed the microwave hood and cabinet above and replaced it with a beautiful stained hood that was custom made to fit the space. We then had our cabinet guys add a 6' extension to the existing cabinets and they matched the door fronts for a seamless look. As part of the new cabinets, we were able to create a dedicated space for the microwave in order to save countertop space. Since a farmhouse sink was high on my client's wish list, the guys modified the existing sink base so that it could allow for the new sink in white ceramic. We finished it off with new stainless steel appliances, white quartz countertops in Aspen, and white subway tile with gray grout which we ran all the way to the ceiling. These changes go to show that you don't have to spend a fortune to have a gorgeous kitchen with plenty of storage.
