Moving on to Phase 2 of this home remodel, we journey into the transformed kitchen. As we saw in Phase 1, this 90’s home had slightly aged, honey-tone wood cabinets with black + charcoal granite counters and gray tile backsplashes.
As we moved from the den to the kitchen, black granite counters were replaced with quartz. This was selected for its creamy marbled background of neutral white with meandering gray-ashen veins dotted with veiled charcoal speckles.
The countertop & backsplash flow into one another for a seamless transition.
We painted the existing cabinets, with a mixture of black + white to stick with the theme for the rest of the house.
This set the stage for updating the existing honey-toned wood cabinetry with fresh, lightweight, luminous, and subtly sophisticated shades of white + black in the kitchen & other rooms throughout the home.
Right beyond the kitchen, is the laundry room, where we kept the same theme as the kitchen.
We used the same quartz slabs for the countertop + backsplash, replaced the sink, and painted the existing cabinets white.
