Our Wrentham clients bought their beautiful home several years ago. They loved almost everything about the home. The pool. The front porch. The space. And the neighborhood which was perfect for their family. But the kitchen left a lot to be desired. The clients wanted to make the space more functional as well as lighter and more contemporary so they called Hubley Painting and Carpentry.
It is amazing the difference paint can make in a space. The kitchen is so much lighter and brighter now that the cabinets and walls have been painted. Crown molding was added to the top of the upper cabinets to give the space a more grander feeling. New doors were ordered in shaker style to update the look as well.
The island saw quite a transformation. Alex, our carpenter extended it in both directions adding decorative corbels for character. The extension created a larger prep space and allowed for more seating. The island cabinets were re-purposed to house a microwave and coffee maker freeing up space on the counters.
The clients wanted a farmers sink in their new space. Alex reconfigured the old cabinet base to fit the new sink. The space was measured and new doors were made to fit the new opening.
The cooktop was small and dated so our clients decided to upgrade to a beautiful range. Alex made room for the larger unit by taking an upper cabinet on either side of the original stovetop and vent. The lower cabinets were also altered to fit the range. The cabinet to the left of the stove was significantly decreased in size. With the small space left, Alex created a pull out spice rack. To the right of the stove, the double door cabinet was turned into a single door cabinet and the drawer was reduced in size as well. Our tile contractor created a beautiful tile focal piece above the stove which pulls in all the colors of the kitchen so well.
The Refrigerator Wall
There were two banks of cabinetry on the opposite wall in the kitchen with a small doorway in between leading to foyer and family room. With the oven now part of the range, more space was freed up on the wall to make room for a larger refrigerator. The homeowners felt they had plenty of storage space and opted to remove the second bank of cabinets and enlarge the opening to the kitchen. The cabinet bases were re-purposed to transform this area.
The Wet Bar
This area was not being used to its full potential in the old kitchen space. A few simple changes transformed the desk space into a beautiful and functional wet bar. The upper cabinets stayed the same with the exception of new, beautiful pane glass doors. Lightening was also added to illuminate the glassware and highlight the space. The lower cabinets were slightly enlarged to snugly fit the wine fridge.
The Breakfast Nook
The breakfast nook in our client’s kitchen was a perfect space for the family to gather for meals. The built in window seat had varying heights so Alex rebuilt it to be one long continuous bench with drawers for additional kitchen storage. The wainscoting was also updated from beadboard to shaker style for a clean, modern look.
