Remodel 1980 kitchen into gourmet kitchen
My client inherited her parent's 1980 built home. My client is a gourmet cook who entertains several times a week. Not only did we gut the kitchen rebuilding it with more space and functionality; we opened up the kitchen to the living room by opening up the existing opening, raising the ceiling in the kitchen giving it much more volume, and pulling wall covering off the walls. The new ceiling has interesting angles to add interest, we added under cabinet and above cabinet LED lighting for function and setting the mood. We also did a lot of recessed LED cans that each give 50,000 hrs of light!!! We gave her so much functionality within her cabinets and an amazing thriple pullout pantry. Previously she had one of those 4X4 corner closet pantries. Now she has more space for storage in a 36X80 pantry. She tells me she is having a hard time filling her new pantry.
We used stain on lower cabinetry for durability and glazed upper cabinets in trim color to give this smaller kitchen the illusion of more space.
