Our team at Renewal recently completed a kitchen remodel for a creative, antique-collecting homeowner. The client wanted a functional space for cooking and storage, while showcasing some of her most precious antiques. So we underwent a project to maximize kitchen space.
In the project to maximize kitchen space, our team found that the biggest challenge was the small size of the kitchen. Every inch of space was critical in creating the most constructive area for storage and meal preparation. We began by relocating the range oven, adding a slim vent hood above in order to increase storage space. We stacked cabinets and lit the top glass cabinets, where the client can showcase antiques.
We installed the client’s dream farm sink—a Rohl fireclay single bowl sink. Gray grout with a tight grout line and standard white subway tile make for a sleek background. The Cosmos Silver Water counters bring some boldness in color to the room, while still allowing the pops of color on the showcased antiques to grab our attention.
The homeowner installed the Anaglypta wallpaper on the ceiling before painting it metallic silver. We love how much depth this adds to the overall look—no inch of this room is left without purpose in function or design.
This space went from a dark and dated kitchen, without much storage or workspace, to a light and vibrant space offering room to create and savor. The homeowner’s creativity and style shine in this beautifully quaint but now maximized kitchen space.
