Full service kitchen design and remodeling
Our Gary Way project in Phoenix went from outdated oak cabinets and a small island to a bright, open kitchen. The perimeter cabinets are a white shaker style while the island is a fun blue color. We used open shelving to add texture and centered the cooktop on the backwall to create a focal point. We also updated the nearby linen closest to match the kitchen cabinets. Overall, the kitchen now has more storage and is much more functional than it was before!
We started by brightening up the space with white shaker cabinets that went all the way to the 10’ ceiling. To break it up, we added glass and puck lights to a few of the stacked uppers so our client could display the glass she handmakes. We centered the cooktop on the back wall, making it the focal point. The subway tile laid in a herringbone pattern acts as a backdrop for the tall stainless-steel hood. Under the cooktop we have rollouts for pots and pans to grab while cooking. We also added a pull-out spice rack to the right of the cooktop for easy access to spices & oils.
The left side of the kitchen has everything you need for a coffee and wine bar. With a beverage fridge below and the ice maker nearby in the island, it’s the perfect place to prepare drinks for friends and family. The open wooden shelving matches the nearby fireplace mantle, it adds the perfect amount of texture to this kitchen! Our client decorated them with fun cookbooks and barware. The 10’ tall cabinet to the left has rollouts to keep everything organized. It also serves as an anchor point to the kitchen, the refrigerator mirrors this on the right.
The island is a beautiful blue color that plays well with the cool-toned gray & white quartz countertops. We used an apron front composite sink and a Delta faucet with Touch Technology. Next to the sink is the dishwasher and an ice maker. The back of the island has 3 sets of full height doors which is a great place to store items that aren’t used very often. Our client chose fun green counter stools that add a pop of color!
Bringing the cabinets all the way to the ceiling really made this kitchen feel larger and more inviting. The blue island adds the pop of color this space needed! We were able to maximize storage and add a larger island. With little touches like the open shelving and glass upper cabinets, this kitchen really came together!
