I thought it would be fun to zoom in and take a closer look at some of the details that went into this renovation. Perhaps you can incorporate some of Nancy’s ideas into your own kitchen.
Nancy’s cabinets are custom built so she was able to incorporate some wonderful features. One of them being a lighted, open display cabinet with a keystone detail above her refrigerator. It makes a great place to display special and seasonal pieces. She added a layer of smaller lighted glass front cabinets above the upper cabinets in the rest of the kitchen.
The only change that was made to the original footprint, was to move the large angled sink island a few inches. This left an exposed area in the tile which was taken care of by adding a footrest on the backside of it. Beadboard siding adds a layer of dimension and texture.
The polished nickel faucet and pulls and nailheads on the stools…
…the gorgeous quartz counters…
…and the little bit of bling in the glass tile in the wine bar area are the jewelry in the kitchen.
The really cool mercury glass light fixture above the table adds one more bit of sparkle.
The handmade, white and shiny, arabesque tile backsplash was taken all the way up to the ceiling and is the perfect backdrop for the jaw dropping custom hood. I literally drool over those corbels!
All of the hard surfaces in a kitchen can make it feel cold, but a dark stained piece of butcher block added to the island warms it right up.
To help with organization, Nancy added a flat knife block and silverware holder to the drawer in the island…
…and a peg organization system to several deep drawers.
Nancy opted not to put any window treatments back into the room. Instead, she left the windows bare and visually heightened them by adding easy-to-do trim above the them. The same treatment was carried over to the pantry door and to the rest of the doors in the kitchen.
And lastly, Nancy found a beautiful display cabinet to go between the windows on the back wall of the kitchen.
Want to take a peek inside?
I love the white dishes and accessories mixed with just a few gray pieces.
A pop of greenery on the top shelf and a smattering of turquoise brings the whole cabinet display to life.
I sure do hope you enjoyed touring Nancy’s new kitchen. A big thank you and hugs to her for allowing me to share it with you.
