Why live with that dark kitchen?

Why live with that dark kitchen?

Would you believe this kitchen used to feature fluorescent lighting, oak cabinets and a space sucking double level peninsula? Like many 20 year old homes, the room reflected a style that is no longer in favor, and was not meeting the needs of this busy family. Through a 10 week renovation, this family achieved an amazing result with the help of Ann Bridgman and Sterling Renovations.

Now the space is light and bright with stunning pendants and ample lighting, thoughtfully planned storage for everyday clutter, and wide spaces between the island and cabinets to help with flow during meal prep and parties. Ample appliance garages hide the piles of daily life, cabinets on the counter stool side of the island  hold off season entertaining items. The stainless steel appliances  are up to date and reflect the functionality of the kitchen, and the white shaker cabinets provide a clean backdrop for the stunning black and white honed quartzite. Even the customer chosen sink has multiple levels and inserts to maximize utility.

Hiring the right professionals with good communication skills, taking your time with the planning, and accepting that, indeed, you get what you pay for, results in an incredible addition to your home, and to your life.   And if selling is in your future, there is no better place to invest in your home than in your kitchen.  For more ideas for your kitchen, take a look here.
