This home was built in the 1950's and is what I would consider a cottage. This kitchen had been updated in the '80's, but now it was ready to come into the 21st century.
With a limited budget, we had to decide priorities. Ideally, we wanted to replace the cabinets. Instead, we went for a fresh coat of paint, new doors and drawers, some rearranging and just a couple new cabinets to make this kitchen more welcoming and functional.
The Silestone countertops were a must and a last minute slush fund afforded the backsplash upgrade from the slated subway tile.
From the beginning, I had a vision for this black and white checkerboard floor. It is fitting to the age of the house and the angled lines really helped to open up the space.
Finish off with some new dining furniture and window treatments and lighting and we've got a happy client!
