Kitchen makeovers, fresh ingredients
Kitchen makeovers reveal great new looks
Knotty Alder cabinetry with a rich antique bronze stain creates a rustic atmosphere, while the unique blue kitchen island brings out the soothing hues of the Blue Louise granite countertops and slate floor.
Beech was used for the cabinetry in this kitchen, stainless steel for the perimeter countertops and limestone for the island, all of which helps create a clean, contemporary feel.
Some kitchen remodeling ideas that these homeowners embraced include knocking down a wall and raising the ceiling, both of which helped to create the open feeling that they wanted.
After a remodel that removed a wall that backed up to a sunroom and pushed the sink countertop back 12 inches, the designer gained enough square footage to include a prep island in the kitchen design, which gives the couple plenty of elbow room.
Granite countertops are just one of the many things added to this kitchen during a remodel. Other renovations include relocating the stove, new cabinet doors and trim, and a new custom island with a vegetable sink.
Right after purchasing a home built in, and mostly untouched since, the 1960s, a Columbus homeowner had just over a month to completely remodel the place before her move-in date. The makeover included carving uneven grooves into the kitchen cabinet doors and painting them white, adding new hardware, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a subway tile backsplash for a fresh, classic look.
