Better In Blue Park Ridge

I can't believe how long it's been since we've blogged! WAY TOO LONG!
Well, we are back on it and happy to share some projects in various stages. This project, "Better in Blue" is completed and while we don't have finished photos yet, here are some that are close.
In this project, the goal was to create a modern kitchen that fit with the aesthetic of the owner as well as maximizing storage and light. We reduced the size of the existing window to add storage space. We also pushed a pulled walls to allow for a wall of cabinetry and enough room for an island.
Opening up a the wall between the Kitchen and Dining Room greatly increased the relationship between the 2 rooms. Minimal cabinet hardware was used to keep it sleek while 2 tones of blues adds detail to the flat slab cabinetry. New stainless appliances enhance the look and using a 42" hood over the 36 inch range allows the tile backsplash to have more impact in the space.
The transformation is amazing and unique. Great projects come from having a great team. This project is a true example of this. Patience, perseverance and a willingness to be bold and exciting. We truly appreciated working with these incredible owners.

Who's that guy hiding behind the island!? Oh, he's sealing the floors.
We pulled the volume of the kitchen box out into the hallway. Instead of hiding this move, we decided to accentuate it by using tongue and groove white oak boards to wrap the space and pull it into the kitchen. The owner decided to replace the existing cork flooring during the project when it was clear the sun bleached floor could not be sanded. New gray stone tile makes it's way to the entry, lines the front of the fireplace hearth and moves into the new kitchen.
 A new bathroom was a priority. We still wanted to use fun color and rich materials in the new bathroom. Wrapping walnut cabinetry around a new medicine cabinet maximized storage space and a long sink with 2 faucets will hopefully keep shoving to a minimum between family members getting ready for school.
