Here in the before shot of the Kitchen, we show you what we started with. Notice the Almond tile with brown grout and the fluorescent overhead light. These are defining characteristics of a home built in the 1980’s. The homeowner’s goal was to update her design with a more current style and color scheme while maintaining a traditional, yet timeless design. RemodelWest was able to capture her ideas and make them a dream come true.
During the design process, the homeowner works closely with RemodelWest’s design staff to make their visions become reality.
Senior Designer, Sarah Spiroff has earned the credentials of Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) and Certified Bathroom
Designer (CBD) from the National Kitchen and Bath Association. Sarah was the designer assigned to this project and worked closely with the homeowner to achieve the traditional, yet up to date design. Here is an after shot of the Kitchen. At first glance, it is beautiful; the striking contrast between the countertop and the cabinets capture the essence of traditionalism.
The first things to catch your eye in this photo are the cabinets. Sarah and the homeowner selected a darker Alderwood Cabinet with a glazed finish supplied by Crystal Cabinets. Also, note the valance installed above the kitchen sink window. This was custom designed with an arch to fit perfectly above the kitchen sink window.
The next item to pop in this image is the countertop. A combination of a classic marble material called Calacatta Classico used primarily on the island, and a new option for countertop made from recycled material called Quartz used as a countertop for the perimeter of the kitchen. Pictured is a color called Quartz-Reflections, made by CaesarStone.
Take a look at the close up on the tile detail of this backsplash. Tiles were made for the backsplash design that were to resemble the marble countertop, as you can see the two materials are an exact match. She also included and designed a glass tile mosaic to add another modern flare to the kitchen. The flooring used in the Kitchen was a hard rock maple. It uses a water-based finish made by Bon Ami. This finish is a green material because it is a water-based solution. With the flooring and the countertop in a light color and the darker colored cabinets, it brightens up the room and achieves the rich, comfortable style of living that the customer had desired. In order to establish continuity throughout the house, the maple flooring was used in the Family Room as well. In this room, you can also find the fireplace. Using Crystal Cabinets, Remodel West designed a Fireplace Mantle to coordinate with the kitchen cabinets by giving the same color and glazed finish, and also designing it to share the same structure as the valance placed above the kitchen sink window. Take a look at the before and after pictures of the Fireplace Mantle.
