Kitchen remodels run the gamut from simple to sensational; sometimes all that is needed is a simple adjustment to instill new spirit into a perfectly good floor plan. In many cases, the counter tops are the element that makes or breaks a kitchen remodel. When a full remodel isn’t possible, replacing the counters can completely change the look of the room.

Even though the kitchen features of a home may be fully up to date, they may not suit a homeowner’s taste. In this project, The Kitchen Master needed to get rid of the stark, white cabinets and appliances and dark granite countertops.
As part of an overall rustic theme that created a large open room with the fireplace at the center, our award-winning designers replaced the cabinets and swapped the bright white look and feel for glazed cherry wood. To provide an appealing contrast and dramatic texture, the main counter tops were replaced with a very casual green granite with soft waves much like a sandy shoreline. The island lower counter was build using multi-colored slate tiles with a decorative metal finish edging. Other rustic natural materials included matching stone on the fireplace and the unique range hood.
Just because a kitchen has a traditional design doesn’t mean it’s stodgy or outdated. In this remodel, the homeowners wanted to shift the focal point of the kitchen and add more storage space. The kitchen already had the basics in place: a curved island and two separate banks of cabinets. The bank on the far side of the kitchen even had built-in storage for wine. However, the main counter was white laminate and blended into the matching cabinets, not offering contrast. The island differed from the rest with a black counter, not creating a cohesive space.
