It’s “Before and After” time! This is one of my favorite kitchen updates. It started out nice enough: butter yellow walls, white cabinets and appliances, nice wood breakfast table.
But my client wanted more – something updated, clean-lined, and welcoming. She was over the peely thermafoil cabinets, formica countertops, dated lighting, and lackluster color scheme. Before, it was a little bit country. Now, it’s a little bit rock-n-roll:
We traded the yellow wall color, the brass light fixtures, and the fussy window treatment . . .
. . . for a soothing gray-green wall color with a deeper greenish-blue color on the island, on-trend brushed nickel light fixtures, and simple yet elegant window treatments.
Where we saved money: scoring on-trend lighting, faucet, and stainless steel microwave on clearance from Lowe’s, choosing a black cooktop (rather than stainless steel) to blend right in with the new countertops, and installing inexpensive but timeless subway tile as a backsplash.
We also saved by maintaining the same cabinetry layout and simply refacing them with cottage details, and by keeping the existing breakfast room suite.
