Before and After Kitchen Renovation

Wow !  I didn't realize I haven't done a blog post for over a year ! Guess we've been pretty busy with design projects.  Will try and post more often.  Personally I LOVE before and afters  - and so I wanted to share this recent renovation we did which has a good transformation .


Most of our renovations are complete demo's .  We love working with a clean slate !

Now this Kitchen is Open and bright .   Accents of brass is classic , not a fad or trend.  Many clients are afraid to do it ... thinking it's just a trend .  But it stays timeless when mixed with other metals.
White Kitchens are always great especially when you introduce a contrast color for the island . 

Don't forget the 5th wall ... the Ceiling !   We added molding to the ceiling to give it some architectural detailing .   Speaking of architectural detailing... we also arched some doorways and raised the ceiling .    Kitchens design is not just pretty materials and nice appliances , it begins with a good space plan , finding clever ways to borrow space from other rooms and make it all functional .  The aesthetic is always in the back of my mind , but I truly believe form follows function.


  1. Erica, this kitchen looks fantastic! Did you know the kitchen can often be overlooked when it comes to wall decorating ideas. Most people invest in large items, like stainless steel appliances and granite counters, but forget the finishing touches. Give your kitchen a complete look with canvas prints of your favorite savory dishes or steaming coffee mugs. Brightly colored photos of fruits and vegetables will surely whip up an appetite, or you can add your favorite cooking quote or expression to make the room personal.
