Combining flow and simplicity for a classic touch
To give this kitchen a classic update, we decided to go with the most classic of kitchen colors – White – which will always be in style.
The microwave found a new home in the kitchen island, making room for the sleek range hood. Gold accents, especially in the lights and pulls, brought this new kitchen to life.
Quartz countertops provided a tremendous new work surface, while a decorative tile backsplash accentuates the new height of the kitchen.
To add a splash of color we added soft, classic window treatments.
When this house was built back in the 90s, half walls were a way to divide the rooms and still feel connected to the adjoining room. Nonetheless, that old half wall was just in the way of the seating area and interrupted the flow between the kitchen and the connecting family room.
Removing the wall and continuing the hardwood into the family room helped transform both spaces. The kitchen chairs no longer bump in to the half wall, plus both rooms have a much more open feeling.
Now this is once again the family hub and a place to gather.
