Making a forever home 

Colors and textures are showcased in this artistic kitchen. An open space designed for a family who loves to cook and spend time together, the kitchen balances a sense of ease and comfort along with a bold style that’s unafraid to stand out.  Homeowners Eric and Jennifer purchased this home as their forever home and wanted the kitchen to work well for them long term.

The space got a modern upgrade with a focus on unique storage options that’s functional, comfortable, and looks good.  Homewoner Eric is very handy and did all of the carpentry work himself!

We had a wonderful experience working with our designer. During the pandemic one would think it would be difficult to remodel a kitchen however Capitol made it seamless. The plans were spot on and our kitchen turned out amazing. I would highly recommend her and Capitol Kitchens and Baths.

Eric and Jen

This kitchen design was all about clean lines

They gutted it to create a bright Scandinavian feeling kitchen with an L-shaped counter, white cabinets and counters, and a green subway tile backsplash to add some personality.

Before:  An island countertop that restricted a good workflow and multiple chefs.

Before: Rundown and Dull

You don’t need to have an eye for design to see that this kitchen was in need of a little love.  The stark contrast between the white appliances and dark stained-everything make this kitchen feel outdated, dark, and cramped.

 

 

Design Time:

We looked for space saving and storage solutions to make the most of the space available. Things like raising the cabinets to ceiling height and taking out the soffit- both functional to gain additional storage and design friendly to make the room feel bigger and more open. Or choosing unique storage cabinets, like a drawer spice rack, to ensure the homeowners space was perfect for their needs.

Color accents 

If there’s one room in your home that absolutely needs to be functional, it’s the kitchen. But since it’s the heart of the home, a kitchen should also be stylish and presentable.

The white cabinets look so much fresher than the former wood material in this kitchen.  Removing the soffit and using tall cabinets to the ceiling gives both more storage and a feeling of grandeur and height in a smaller space. Now, it has a beautiful color scheme of greens and blues, smart glass cabinet doors, new lighting, and a spacious counter for cooking and eating.

STORAGE & ORGANIZATION

We were focused on creating the most storage possible with a small area space. Homewoner Jen definitely wanted a convenient place for her cookie sheets and trays as well as a spice organizer.
