A Galley Kitchen to Love

When my clients approached me about this remodel, they had thought long and hard about what they wanted to do with the place, in fact, they began the process themselves by changing the floors, and partially removing a wall and some cabinetry.

The first before picture is what the kitchen looked like when they moved in, the second one is what the kitchen looked like when we came into the remodeling process.

The first thing we did was converting the crammed u-shaped kitchen into a more spacious galley style kitchen. The parallel sides allowed us to fit a pantry, ample drawers, and tall cabinetry, while making the work triangle easily accessible.

We embraced the open wall concept by adding a splash and a quartz cap to the pony wall to match the countertops. This way the kitchen can be seen from the living room and dining room, allowing the natural light to flow into the new space.

We replaced the floors throughout the common areas with a lighter laminate floor that adds warmth to the space along with the wood beam detail.

Lastly, we used a grout color to match the veining on the quartz countertop to break up the white space and delineate the subway pattern of the tile.

Do you have a space that needs updating? Let's work together!
