Project Description

This standard ’80’s kitchen leaves a lot to be desired. With popcorn ceilings, oak cabinets, off-white laminate countertops, mismatched appliances and fluorescent overhead lighting, there isn’t a surface in the entire room that doesn’t scream “outdated.”

After

This kitchen remodel is miraculously completed in a matter of days, while the clients are out of town on a camping trip. To meet this tight deadline, Room Fu designers focus on lighting, tile and granite that is readily available.  When combined with upgraded stainless steel appliances and a fresh coat of paint throughout the space, the resulting kitchen looks anything but standard.

Eliminating the popcorn ceiling and recessed fluorescent tube light boxes takes twenty years off the perceived age of the home and maximizes resale value.  Light grayish-blue walls modernize the space and make the creamy cabinets pop.

A new light fixture highlights the existing breakfast table, which is painted to match the kitchen cabinets. Curtain panels in a darker slate blue add just the right monochromatic finishing touch to the windows.

New leather dining chairs in a similar shade of vanilla keep the space serene and elegantly casual.  Die-cut placemats by mod design favorite, Chilewich, add a fun element to the space.
