The customer’s kitchen was outdated oak and lacked some functionality. There also was a large section of the kitchen that was bare that the customer wanted a “command center” for the family. They wanted a large wall oven which their existing cabinet could not accommodate. Their existing lazy susan didn’t work and the island was boring (to quote the client).
We saved most of the perimeter cabinets and refaced them in a dark maple with glaze. We did replace the lazy susan, the oven cabinet and installed a wine rack over the fridge. We replaced the oven cabinet allowing a wider, 30” oven to be installed. We really spiced up the island with raised panels on the back, a contoured countertop at the end and legs. The matching command center provides for storage of “office” type stuff and gives her a central place to direct her kids from. Although it’s not visible in the pictures, we also installed built in seating for one side of the kitchen table and make the tops hinged so items could be sorted inside the seats if needed. All in all….a completely new look and a very happy customer!
