Bold Denver Kitchen Remodel and Redesign

Bold Kitchen Update

With new appliances on the wish list and a client that may decide to sell and move in the next 5 years, there was a very limited budget for updating this kitchen even though there was a strong desire to see a significant difference.  An existing funky color combination of light and dark turquoise with touches of hot pink masked cabinets that were in good condition and a “Hoosier” cabinet that added much to the uniqueness and overall charm of the kitchen.  Limited counter space was further limited with a microwave that sat on the counter and the connecting nook of the kitchen really didn’t feel connected at all.

Elements/challenges of existing space design include:

  • Limited budget to make significant impact
  • Could make no change to the footprint whatsoever
  • Updating what were probably at least 70 year-old cabinets
  • Gaining storage and counter space
  • Increasing the connection between the kitchen and the breakfast nook

Solutions:

  • Cleaning up the surfaces of the cabinets and repainting them white with new, contemporary pulls
  • Highlighting a section of the “Hoosier” cabinet with black paint to make it stand apart from the rest of what is a white wall of cabinetry
  • Build in the microwave to increase counter space near the range
  • Install new black quartz countertops to set of the new cabinet color
  • Install bright new backsplash in red, white and gold to coordinate with the new gold wall color and brighten the whole space
  • Install new cushions/pillows to coordinate with the kitchen colors
  • Install pendant lights as additional lighting as well as an accent to the beautiful windows along the main wall of the kitchen

Significant increase to the storage, the counter space, the workability, not to mention the beauty of this kitchen. It is truly now a jewel!

This is the Before
Old, crooked doors and inconvenient organization.

Nothing to write home about.

Puts the “func” in dysfunctional!
