Cherry kitchen with copper accents

Now a bright, spacious room with a layout conducive to cooking and entertaining, this expanded kitchen meets the homeowners' wishes for a more open space.

Before the remodel, the kitchen had 1980s laminate countertops and oak cabinets, as well as outdated appliances and inefficient lighting. A peninsula enclosed a narrow cooking area and a wall separated a small room and sliding door to the deck from the kitchen. This wall was taken down to enlarge the kitchen, allowing for a more open floor plan.

Instead of a peninsula, the kitchen now has a large island, providing more counter space for cooking and dining. At the end of the room - which was previously separated by a wall - a bar area (featuring a wine fridge) was added.

This kitchen remodel features cherry transitional cabinets from Showplace, Cambria countertops, travertine wall tile with copper accents, stainless steel appliances, oil rubbed bronze hardware and new lighting. The room was brightened by adding more natural light and recessed, under cabinet, and pendant lights.

An adjoining dining area (not shown in these photos) was painted and updated to enhance the flow between the rooms. Ceramic tile in the kitchen was replaced with hardwood flooring to match the hardwood flooring in this dining room.

The end result of this remodel is a kitchen with more storage, better lighting, a more efficient and aesthetically pleasing layout, and happy homeowners.
