“The whole feel of the kitchen has changed, although we did not change the layout. Just love being in the space."

Whiter and Brighter

The Challenge -

While this "builder's special" kitchen was a good size and had a functional layout, it had dated, short  wood cabinets, dark counters and an oversized hood. 

Fixtures were to remain in the same location and a white kitchen was at the top of the request list.

Kitchen is transformed with stacked cabinets going to the ceiling and a complimenting molding.  Grabill White Peony Cheshire inset cabinets are the star of the show.  

It's lighter, brighter and the ceiling feels taller!

The island cabinets are Grabill's Shadow, a bluish grey, and the hutch counter is walnut butcher block.  

This harmonious balance of colors and materials precludes the kitchen from being "too white'.

Thoughtful design details make a difference.

For example, the cabinet to the left of the window was built as a triple door cabinet to avoid any styles between the doors.

The Butler's Pantry was updated to allow for a wine cooler and beverage unit, as well as lockable storage up and down for alcohol.

Small layout changes made big differences. A microwave drawer was added at the island.  The desk area became a more stately hutch. Custom designed cutlery inserts provided improved storage and organization.
