This space was small and dark, but sometimes its what you can do with a small space that makes it all the more special. A low soffit limited the space dramatically and brought down the feeling of the ceilings. Old oak cabintry and dark maroon laminate counters darkened the space. The only highlight was the charming corner window, but that lacked all funciton because it couldn’t even be opened!
We replaced the window so that it opens – Huge imporovement! We demolished the soffit and dropped a large pendant light over the sink to create a focal point! We extended the cabinetry up to the ceiling to maxamize space and embraced two-tone cabients to create a feeling of lightness in the space. Marble counters and a glass subway tile backsplash complented the white upper cabinets. Thankfully, new cabinets also meant making room the essentails in every kitchen – A dishwasher and microwave!
The final details were added: Modern cabinet hardware, a bright chrome faucet, and a few accessories helped finish the space. To see all of the AFTER photos from the project and more sources – Check out the 17th Ave page!
