N Raleigh Project: Rustic Modern Kitchen
This kitchen transformed from a plain vanilla traditional style to a Rustic Modern Kitchen.
When we first met the homeowners at their home, we realized why they sought our help. Their home had a drive-thru kitchen. To make matters worse, the kitchen sink was in full view as you walked into the front door.
Their foyer dumped you into their narrow galley-style kitchen which was flanked by the family room on one side and the dining room on the other. Their kitchen seemed to be an after-thought and lacked work area and functional space.
The kitchen was relocated to the family room area. A new mudroom and storage space was added in the garage space. This provided much needed storage and a drop off area for family items.
The new kitchen is much larger with many unique features including white cabinets with a gray glaze and Quartz waterfall countertops. A unique wood waterfall cabinet gives further interest and warmth to the kitchen.
A gorgeous island adds farmhouse character to the kitchen. Gray and copper touches bring balance to the kitchen throughout with the farmhouse sink, backsplash tile, hood, faucet, hardware and GE Cafe appliance handles.
A wet bar, beverage center and custom banquette was added in the previous kitchen space.
To make the home’s entrance more inviting, a French door was added and centered with the foyer drawing you into the space and bringing the outdoors in. A new modern handrail and new stair treads were added.
Space for the relocated family room was created by removing a wall between the existing dining room and front office.
The master bathroom layout was opened up by relocating the toilet which created space for a large zero-entry shower.
New recessed wall height cabinets were located in place of the previous master closet door which was off of the bathroom. The new closet space provides lots of needed storage. The master closet door was relocated to the bedroom and features a new barn door.
