Audrey and Will bought their Northwest Austin home with every intention of remodeling their kitchen, but it took a while before they were ready to bite off such a huge project.
Although their sprawling ranch-style house featured large rooms, the kitchen layout was as odd as it was outdated. Despite its spacious proportions, everything in the kitchen felt cramped, particularly around the clunky portable island. The kicker? No pantry.
There was also an outdated wet bar behind the sink/fridge wall, as well as a built-in desk space in the breakfast area the family had no use for.
The couple wanted help reimagining the space, to up the ante in terms of functionality, and to create a more inviting and open kitchen.
First of all, look at how dreamy this kitchen remodel turned out! I’m such a superfan of these emerald green cabinets with all of the crisp white surrounding them.
There are so many upgrades in this remodel! By eliminating the adjacent wet bar and reconfiguring the layout, we create a more open kitchen with loads of prep space around the cooktop, and what feels like miles of countertop.
Now, there’s better flow between the kitchen, living room and formal dining room.
Textured chevron porcelain tile in subtle tones of white and icy gray cover the new backsplash.
Quartz countertops feature a marble look with grand gestures of light veining, while brushed brass cylindrical pendant lights illuminate this workspace.
More brushed brass on the sculptural sink faucet, paired with a built-in soap dispenser.
On the Shaker style cabinetry, some mid-century-inspired door and drawer pulls in brushed brass.
Two full-height pantry cabinets replace the old built-in desk.
Also new to the breakfast area, this multi-arm Sputnik chandelier in brushed brass.
I’m loving the return to colorful cabinetry in the kitchen!
