Posts Tagged ‘Kitchen Remodel’

Feel like your kitchen needs an update but don’t want to take on a major remodel? Today, I’m sharing 5 easy ways to update your kitchen and give it a whole new look without the headache of a renovation.

1 ADD A NEW RUG

Adding a runner or area rug (depending on the size of your kitchen) can add gorgeous new color and texture to your kitchen.

2. CHANGE OUT YOUR HARDWARE

SCHOOL HOUSE

I like to think of cabinet hardware as the jewels of your kitchen. Match the hardware to the finish of your light fixture or use it as a bold accent — whatever the case, it is an easy way to update your kitchen.

3. ADD NEW STOOLS

Replacing your stools is an easy and very effective way to add an accent color to your kitchen. They can easily add warmth to an all white kitchen, as in the photo above, or if you want more texture in your kitchen try a natural fiber stool.

4.  REPLACE LIGHTING

Replacing (or adding pendants) is a great way to not only update your kitchen but add drama as well. I love these oversized pendants above.

 

5. PAINT, PAINT, PAINT

Whether you just paint your island or your entire kitchen, a new paint color can completely change the feel of your kitchen and make the biggest impact.

Happy Monday!

Last week I shared the photos of the front of the Reseda Project. Today, I’m excited to share the before + after photos of the kitchen!

Reseda Kitchen

BEFORE

 Initially, the kitchen felt closed off from the rest of the home with only a small doorway from the dining room into the kitchen (above).

BEFORE

Even with gutting the kitchen, I was still limited on square footage and really needed to maximize this 200 sq. foot kitchen/laundry. In order to gain more storage and counter space, I eliminated the 2 smaller windows in the back corner, as well as the window on the left. In order to bring in natural light and a view of the backyard, I added a large picture window on the back wall, as well a full light glass door to the backyard.

For this project, I worked with clients in Austin to design a new kitchen, laundry room and decorate their existing living room. After 10 months of work we are finally done (except for the breakfast bench cushion) and everything worked out beautifully.

The Kitchen

Before

Not a pretty sight at this point, but I  knew there was potential somewhere in there

During the project — when the plumbing was being moved and the frame-work was going up

After

Next time, the den!
