Kitchen remodels, as many of you know, can be a daunting project. This remodel, which wasn’t like starting from the studs but consisted of more than just paint, was overwhelming at times and took several months from start to finish.
You got a glimpse of this kitchen when I shared Pam’s new widow treatments.
Now for the rest of the kitchen reveal.
First the BEFORE PICS…
The work space portion of Pam’s kitchen is literally a triangle. An L shape wall of cabinets & counters with the large island set at an angle. Wall ovens on the far left, fridge on the right and the sink just out of this photo to the right of the fridge. The cook top is housed in the island.
The laundry room, with it’s harlequin wallpaper, and access to the dining room (not seen) is just past the pantry door seen beside the fridge.
All the cabinetry was painted and had a washed effect. Almost like a pickled paint finish. The square ceramic tile, which was laid straight with a dark grout, had a dominant yellow undertone. All the hardware was in gold tones.
Black granite and a 4×4 tile backsplash with 1×1 decorative accent tile finished the look.
While the before kitchen is in better shape than many Pam was more than ready for an update.
The remodel consisted of new wall color, new floor & backsplash tile, repainting the cabinetry, new lighting, replacement of some of the appliances and new window treatments.
The island is now a focal point painted in Drizzle by Sherwin Williams and lightly glazed. The photos at the top of the post and below show the color more accurately. This photo is reading a bit green.
The island’s new backsplash is a 1×2 mini glass subway tile.
We repeated the Island’s Drizzle color in the laundry room.
The laundry room ceiling was previously red. We toyed with the idea of painting the cabinets Drizzle but…
painted the ceiling instead. Here the Drizzle reads much more blue and accurate.
The existing cabinetry got a fresh coat of a creamy white. I believe this color is Dover White, the same color as the trim throughout the house. I’ll confirm that as soon as I can. The walls are now a pale, pale aqua. Confirming this color as well.
The new backsplash is a glass quatrefoil design in a pale taupe color that reads different colors in different lights. It’s gorgeous!
Pam kept the original black granite which looks amazing with the new paint. She replaced her old hardware with a dark, black/bronze for the island and nickel for the white cabinets.
The new 12×24 floor tiles, laid in a offset 1/3 brick pattern, really helps brighten up the space.
Of course the new window treatments bring the whole kitchen to life!
This kitchen, which is at the center of Pam and Randy’s home, has given the home a whole new look.
Well worth the wait.
