Simple Kitchen Refresh | Plymouth, MN

the challenge

For this kitchen, our client was looking to refresh her kitchen through a few simple updates. Since the cabinets were already in good shape, the appliances worked well, and the layout of the kitchen worked with our client’s lifestyle, we suggested updating the countertops, backsplash, sink, faucet, and lighting. One of the challenges was fixing some gapping between the cabinets and countertops, which we updated before the new countertops went in. Our client wanted to keep the kitchen clean and timeless, but just update select finishes to make her new kitchen truly shine. By the sink, there was an opening that looked into the dining room, but the space was small and the step up counter was blocking the view. We suggested opening up the space and making it flush with the rest of the countertop.

our solution

After all was said and done, this kitchen looks like a brand new space and our client loves her kitchen refresh. By lowering the opening by the sink, the kitchen feels much more open and our client is able to see more into her dining room. For the countertops, we recommended the Delgatie design from Cambria, which is a quartz material. Quartz countertops are our number one choice in kitchens because they are non-porous and anti-microbial, so nothing will get through and you won’t see stains. They also don’t need to be sealed, so they’re a great low maintenance option. For the backsplash, our client loved the classic subway look, so we installed white subway tile from Tile Shop with white trim pieces. In addition, we installed a white sink with a chrome faucet and water dispenser. To tie the whole kitchen together, the chandelier over the dining table and the pendant in the kitchen got replaced with a simple, yet classic design with chrome finishes.
