Our homeowners in Heavenly Hills wanted to stay in their existing house but had some serious issues with their kitchen. First, the kitchen was built around a double island concept which created a clunky prep space instead of a smooth work flow. Secondly, the kitchen was very heavy in cabinetry closer to the dining room instead of throughout the kitchen, resulting in inconsistent and inconvenient storage. Finally, the kitchen needed to be updated from all of the builder grade cabinetry, countertops and backsplash that were selected when the house was originally constructed.
At the top of our homeowners’ wish list were better storage, higher end finishes that still kept with the traditional style of the home, a new appliance garage, more durable countertops (quartz), warmer floors, and consistent flooring throughout the main living areas. Our homeowners contacted Allison Jaffe @allisonjaffeinteriordesign for the new design plan, and then Skelly Home Renovations got to work on the construction!
Heavenly Hills consisted of a full kitchen gut. We demoed the two islands in the kitchen and created one large centerpiece island. We added custom shaker-style perimeter cabinetry which extends all the way to the ceiling and adds a ton of storage space. The cabinetry has multiple trim pieces to make it really stand out, plus the lower navy blue cabinetry combines with the upper white cabinetry to create depth and warmth in the space.
Top Photos: The front of the fireplace got a facelift with new limestone pieces. Plus, above the fireplace is a wood feature that extends all the way up to top of the 14-foot ceiling and adds interest to the room! Bottom Photo: The countertops are quartz, and the backsplash is subway tile with an eye catching arabesque tile feature above the cooktop. We added a gas stove top with propane tank, new ceiling lighting + decorative lighting as well as under cabinetry lighting. Beautiful posts were added on the end of the island to add to the traditional feel of the space. Finally, all of the floors were replaced to engineered hardwoods to create a consistency throughout the living area, plus the renovated area received a fresh coat of paint.
The result was nothing short of perfection! A kitchen and living space that is functional and beautiful, and one that these homeowners can enjoy for many more years to come.
