Not every project is a total overhaul. The general layout of this kitchen was functioning well, but the dark cabinets, boxy range hood, and the gold and brown granite countertops were making the space feel dark and heavy. A fresh coat of paint on the walls + cabinets, new quartz countertops and an arabesque backsplash brought new life to this kitchen. A custom built range hood, brass accents + modern lighting rounded out the cosmetic updates. The fireplace received a makeover as well with paint and the removal of stacked stone in favor of a wood mantle with a marble surround.
