Kitchen Remodel Before & After #6

Posted by Dianne Aucello on Thu, Jun 21, 2012 @ 01:44 PM

This project is for a Boston condo with a very small kitchen.  Measuring almost 6'x 8', there is very little storage, and tiny amounts of counter top space.  The wall cabinets were 30" high, with a sheet rocked soffit above.  Water had ruined the particle board sink base cabinet.  It was a very uninviting space, practically punishment to make a meal.

This kitchen was long overdue for an update.

A small project has its challenges.  From the design perspective, it is about how to increase storage & countertop space.  From the contractor's perspective, its is about scheduling the crew, while only 2 can fit in this space at one time.


Starting by partially removing the between the kitchen & living room, which opened up the feel of this space.  The soffit was removed and the wall cabinets are now 42" high with granite countertops.  For a more contemporary look, the chosen cabinets are made from white laminate, with stainless steel handles.  New stainless steel appliances were added, including a microwave hood vent.  The peninsula area tripled the countertop space, and can accommodate 3 stools.

The cabinetry was ordered, and had a 3 week lead time.  Construction started on May 2nd, granite templated on May 9th and installed on May 17th.   Painting to be finished shortly.
