Traditional Kitchen gets upgrade with Modern Touches

This Sandy Springs renovation was one of our favorite transformations of 2016, but then again we are bias towards all of our projects. :) From dark and bulky to open and bright this remodel is one for the books.



Although this might look like a lot of cabinet/storage space, it didn't function properly for the needs of our client. With the new design we were able to give ample storage but create a better flow in the kitchen.



From design meeting to design meeting, it was clear that our client wanted this kitchen to be designed around natural light. With a stunning view to the backyard, this was a no brainer!

When looking to create a space that reflects light and bright features here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Cabinets: Going with a white or neutral color pallet really sets the tone for the feel or your kitchen, or any other space. (This was a custom kitchen and we used SW 7004 Snowbound)

2. Counter tops: White on white is always a good idea, especially if you are wanting a clean and bright look. Selecting a stone that has some veining detail creates beautiful texture. You can accomplish this using Quartz or Quartzite in addition to marble.

3. Finishes: Using lighter finishes like polished nickel, chrome, or gold (yup, gold is back!) will help to brighten your space.

4. Back-splash: This is somewhere you can showcase your personality or keep it clean with just using a white bright subway tile. In my book back-splash is like your favorite pair of heels, dress them up or down they make you feel like a million bucks!

Counter tops are Daltile Statuario. Island has 2-1/2" miter edge detail.
