  • Painted kitchen with wood island, The ceilings are 10' tall so we had the cabinets go all the way up. All of the upper cabinets have lights inside and the boxes were built of alder and stained to match the island. The island has a flush eating ledge to give me a larger prep area. We added a small phone desk with upper glass cabinets across from the nook made use of a very odd space. I did all of the design work and my husband built it he is such a great craftsman!!!

  • Tuscan-inspired Kitchen Renovation on a Budget, Our 1920 house had the original kitchen and an under-used addition, which some call a three season porch, adjacent to it. We began the renovation by replacing the old jalousies with energy efficient windows and door. To help blend the two rooms, our contractor removed as much of the shared wall as possible.  The original plan was to take down the entire wall; however, our plan had to be revised when we discovered plumbing inside that wall. Our contractor helped us contain the cost by custom building more kitchen cabinets to match the existing ones.  This also gave me lots of additional storage - who doesn't love that! Bead board was installed along the breakfast room wall and at the ends of the cabinets. We had a local artisan make the wrought iron towel bar/pot rack. Recessed lighting was installed in both rooms along with honed "Jerusalem Gold" limestone countertops and "Saltillo" terracotta tiles (set on the diagonal).  We visually joined the two spaces by using the same materials and colors throughout.  It was a challenge to put a "new" kitchen into an old home.  We wanted it to look as if this renovated kitchen was original to the house. Having our contractor custom build more of the old style cabinets helped retain that look.  My husband and I have traveled to Tuscany together and were inspired by the earthy colors and rustic textures of that landscape.  We kept this in mind when we were making the design choices as we renovated this space. In conclusion, we are pleased with the result., Kitchens Design

  • Made Autumn Oak Into Old World, We wanted to do a kitchen remodel with new cabinets, appliances, backsplash, lighting, etc.  However, our old oak cabinets were so well made we just couldn't bear the thought of throwing them away and investing $25k on new cabinets.  We took the risk of having them professionally painted, glazed and distressed with new hardware.  Our cabinet refinishing process was:
Sand and prepare surface
  Caulk gaps and holes
  Backfill oak wood grains
  Paint basecoat  
  Sand edges
  Stain edges
  Seal wood
  Glaze over surface

They were professionally painted by:

  • From Painted Paneling to Creamy Bisque, Our house was built in 1977 and when we bought it 20 years ago, the first thing I did was paint all the paneling and the dark walnut cabinets a fresh clean white and change the countertops and appliances from harvest gold to white.  Ten years later, I livened things up a bit with the red walls.  This year it was time for a total gutting. Everything, including the dumb wall that separated the front door from the dining room (and made moving any big furniture into or out of the house a major problem) was removed.  The laundry room door beside the counter with the microwave was moved around the corner to allow more kitchen space.  Fridge and oven both moved to right wall.  My whole color scheme was based on what color oven to get.  I knew I didn't want stainless steel (just a personal aversion), so I either had to go with white or bisque. This decision was forced upon me early as Sear's had a 50% off sale on Kenmore double ovens.  I took paint swatches from Lowes to Sears to see exactly what color I would be dealing with in bisque as you know how department store lighting is.  I walked around the mall for a couple of hours studying this paint swatch and made my decision: bisque it would be (Waverly Bay Oyster in the paint swatch matched perfectly).  Everything else fell into place.  The cabinets have a conversion varnish on them tinted to my color.  This finish is like an automotive finish - very durable.  Countertops are Caesarstone chocolate truffle, and hardware and faucet are oil rubbed bronze.  The Kohler smart divide sink is biscuit., Kitchens Design

  • Traditional Cherry with a Modern Twist, I designed these cherry cabinets and had them made by Masters Woodworking.  They are topped with black granite counters.  The ovens and cooktop are stainless steel.  Both the refrigerator and dishwasher have custom fronts that match the cabinetry, including the drawer lines.  A couple of my favorite features are the bar that has seating on both sides, which is great for conversations and playing games, and the 32" tv with an appliance garage below.  The backsplash is made of 1"x1" glass tiles. My kitchen combines good looks and functionality.  The floors are made of 3" Angico wood., Kitchens Design

  • Modern Kitchen, Here's an updated version of my kitchen.  I went ahead and added the sconces on the pendants... I found them for 10 bucks a piece!  My kitchen itself is small however it's completely open to the living room/dining room so it makes it feel a lot larger and brighter.  Plus it's also great for entertaining!  Because the living room/dining room are so light and bright the darkness of the kitchen contrasts very nicely., Kitchens Design
