Full service kitchen design and remodeling
Style: Warm Transitional
At our Nolina project, we touched just about every room in the house. The homeowner had recently updated the flooring throughout the home, which gave us the perfect neutral base to build upon. From the beginning, our homeowner knew he wanted to brighten up the space but keep elements of drama and contrast. You’ll see that we stuck with a handful of finishes throughout these spaces to give a cohesive & luxurious feel.
The moment we saw this kitchen, we knew we wanted to revise the shape of the island. Previously, it was an oversized rounded island that didn’t have much storage. When reconfiguring it, we squared it off and doubled the storage by adding cabinets along the backside. As for the coffee bar, previously there were no cabinets there! We transformed this unused space into a coffee & wine bar outfitted with 2 appliances garages, a wine fridge, and glass cabinets lit up with LED lights. For finishes, we went with creamy white cabinets on the perimeter & a warm brown wood stain for the island and coffee bar. Throughout the kitchen is a marble-looking quartz with prominent veining. To bring in some texture, we used a mosaic backsplash which married the cabinets & countertop together. Lastly, we used gunmetal tones in the hardware, plumbing fixtures, and island pendants.
The main bar is adjacent to the kitchen, so it made sense to continue the same finishes in the space. We used the same stained cabinetry & countertops, but amped up the backsplash with a fan shaped mosaic tile. By using glass upper cabinets and floating shelves, we were able to pack in the LED lighting. With pucks in each floating shelf & inside all the glass cabinets, it gave the perfect backdrop for our client to display glassware & bottles.
For the two guest baths in the home, we finished the showers in a similar fashion. By using a white beveled subway tile, we were able to make these showers feel larger than they actually are. We coupled that with a brown pebble shower floor to add the contrast our homeowner desired. The larger shower also got a decorative band of dark textured mosaic. For the vanities, one bathroom got a modern pedestal sink with a wall mounted faucet. The other bathroom has more functional storage as the vanity has multiple drawers for guests to fill. To finish it off, both bathrooms got LED mirrors and decorative lighting.
In the master bath, to make the most of the space, we did some rearranging. We removed a linen closet to make an extra-large shower and updated the drop-in tub to a beautiful freestanding tub. We added back a linen cabinet opposite the vanity for easy access to towels & extra toiletries. We used a lot of contrasting finishes in this room for dramatic effect – from the marble tile under the tub to the dark quartz countertops. The shower features a total of 3 tiles: a matte black accent wall, a dramatic marble look, and black pebble floors. All the wall tiles are a large format to fit the scale of this shower. At the vanity, we paired the creamy white cabinets with a dark quartz, wall mounted gun metal faucets, decorative sconces, and LED mirrors.
Our Nolina Trail project had quite the transformation and now better fits our client’s style. We love seeing how updating the colors & style of a home can transform the spaces, making it brighter and better functioning for our client.
