Is your kitchen a candidate for finish upgrades?

Posted by Ben Thompson on 01.13.18

Not every kitchen remodel requires reconfiguration by removing walls or changing the layout. Many can have a dramatic transformation by updating the cabinets, countertops, flooring, appliances, and lighting. We call this type of remodel a kitchen finish upgrade.

Is your kitchen a candidate for finish upgrades? If it’s an adequate size with a functional layout, but it looks dark and outdated, it certainly could be. To give you a sense of how a kitchen finish upgrade renovation could impact your home, take a look at two of our most recent projects below.

Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

If you love the modern farmhouse look, you are going to love this kitchen! Our design updated all of the cabinetry, countertops, appliances, flooring, and fixtures. Shaker style white cabinetry line the walls and a dove gray island adds a little contrast. Floating shelves with white painted wrought iron brackets flanks a white, farmhouse sink. A pendant light over the sink and an arabesque tile pattern backsplash bring a modern flair to the kitchen.



Classic Two-Tone Kitchen Remodel

The existing kitchen in this custom home had cherry cabinetry and the owners wanted to brighten things up with a new two-tone design featuring classic design elements like subway tile, pendant lighting, and a gorgeous new range hood.

White perimeter cabinets feature a dark countertop, while the medium wood toned island is topped with lighter quartz. A few glass front cabinets are strategically placed to display special items and books. A small desk area is tucked adjacent to the island.
