Sleek Kitchen Remodel Transforms Space
When Bob looked at the original kitchen in his Florida home, he knew it had some shortcomings. The medium brown cabinets and tile floors were just not as unique and sleek as he wanted them to be. So he worked for about a month on a design that would offer more counter space, additional cabinets and a more open feel overall.
Bob saw the opportunity to increase the size and functionality during the renovation, which took about three months in total to complete. One of the most important features of the kitchen for Bob was the backsplash. He says he ordered a lot of samples, looking for the perfect tile that would fit well with the other finishes in the room.
In the end, he ended up choosing a matte black subway tile from South Cypress that matched seamlessly with the dark cabinets he selected for the space. The design included an additional wall of cabinets on the exterior of the peninsula, providing the storage Bob was looking for.
The dramatic cabinets are made of black maple and go all the way to the ceiling. They were eventually outfitted with large bar pulls in sleek silver for an architectural element.
Bob selected pecan hardwood flooring in a graphite color and painted the adjacent dining area a warm peach to offset the colors in the countertops. The countertops, which are a Brazilian granite called Gold Marinace, have huge visual impact and really set off the stainless steel appliances and satin nickel faucet in the new kitchen.
Bob Loves his newly modernized kitchen and encourages other homeowners to increase the size and quality of their kitchens, too. Take your time choosing finishes, he advises, and don’t be afraid to order lots of samples.
