WILLISTON RENO: KITCHEN
We had the opportunity to work on this beautiful Craftsman home in Converse Heights by completely renovating the dated kitchen and laundry room, and reconfiguring a former sunroom and bath addition into a luxurious master bath retreat. The owners of this home were dream clients with great style and were very involved with the renovation from start to finish. Making the spaces look authentic to honor the age of the home was important to all of us and we certainly achieved that by using time period finishes such as Subway tile and Shaker style cabinets.
The kitchen was simply put, dated. At some point over the years, attempts had been made to update it but the lay-out did not work well and the space seemed small. We began by removing the wall that separated the kitchen from the Butler's pantry which instantly made the room feel bigger and created the opportunity for bar seating. The original cabinets in the Butler's pantry were saved and my clients did a great job of refinishing them and painting them a rich shade of gray with hardware to match the new cabinetry.
Next we reconfigured the kitchen lay-out by relocating the stove to the wall opposite the sink and placed the refrigerator where the stove had been previously. We were working around two original windows that let in tons of natural sunlight so it was important to keep them. So in order not to block the sunlight, we opted for open shelving on the left side of the sink and an upper cabinet to the right. By moving the stove to a wall on it's own, we were able to have a custom hood installed above the gas range and cabinets on either side for symmetrical balance.
The custom wood cabinets have Shaker style doors painted bright white with antiqued brass hardware and we finished off the look with quartz countertops and a white Subway tile backsplash with gray grout. We absolutely love the richness and timeless look of this kitchen!
