Case Study: Strategic Updates Give Kitchen New Life
There are times when it makes sense to give a kitchen a face life instead of a complete overhaul. In this project located in the Columbus, Ohio area, we worked with our customer to make strategic updates to their kitchen that made the biggest impact for their budget.
Some of the strategic remodeling updates included:
- New countertop and granite island top
- Tile backsplash with special detailing
- New pendant lighting over the island
- Updated stainless steel appliances
- New wall paint to replace old wallpaper
- New cabinet hardware
This kitchen remodel, with its contrasting and complementary colors and textures, keeps the heart of this home warm and cozy without being lost in a sea of neutrals. Working with a good remodeling contractor, one familiar with good design as well as good experience in the remodeling process, helps the client pull all the elements together in a pleasing way – using both existing elements like cabinets and flooring with strategic remodeling to give the room a whole new life.
In the photo above, you can see the contrasting detail on the granite countertop on the island.
Below is a close up of the tile backsplash detail. Little things like tile contrast and different orientations, like diagonal with horizontal tiles, can really add some pop to your backsplash! The long black tiles make the room feel larger and mirror the beautiful new countertops.
