A common question we get asked a lot is what is the best way to update your kitchen without doing a full gut remodel. This project is a perfect example of a kitchen update. You can see the drastic change in the before and after photos, but overall we kept the construction fairly minimal. By updating the countertops, backsplash, island paint and lighting we were able to infuse our client’s personality into this home while working with the existing cabinetry, appliances and flooring. Our favorite part is the custom wood vent hood that our cabinet maker built to match the client’s existing cabinets.
