Client Design Reveal :: Kitchen Design Transformation

Today I’m excited to be sharing a client’s eat-in kitchen that was recently updated. I’ve provided before and after pictures so you can see the kitchen design transformation. It’s quite dramatic.

Kitchen Design Update with Carrara Marble Countertops

In the kitchen the counters and backsplash were replace with gorgeous carrara marble. The gray veining is really beautiful. The island originally didn’t allow for seating, so we extended the marble and provided space for three barstools. The base of the island was painted a stoney gray to provide contrast with the white marble.

Other updates in the kitchen included new cabinetry hardware, a pair of pendant lights and an under-mount sink in stainless steel.  The cabinetry, flooring and appliances all remained the same.

To maximize the space in the dining area, I had a custom L shaped bench created (with storage drawers of course!). It is topped with a kid-friendly vinyl cushion in a metallic silver.  A rectangular trestle table and bright yellow ladder back chairs were also added so that the whole family can enjoy the space.

The family was thinking of moving to a new home, but after the kitchen was updated they decided to stay. It makes me so happy to think I helped a client love their home.

I have more pictures of this clients home that I’ll be sharing soon!

A big thank you to Michaela and Summer for helping me with the photoshoot!

    very nice job! I love the marble but I worry with kids and staining. I love what you did with the entire seating area doubled it.

    What a transformation! I love the stools and the wine rack built into the island. I’m jealous :)

    OH wow that is a beautiful transformation. I love the marble island and how you used it for the backsplash. It really is a stunning kitchen, elegant, inviting and classy and swoon worthy for sure. I bet they love their new space.

    What a difference! I love the bench that includes hidden storage. Will you please tell me where you found the fabric for honeycomb print pillow?

      Thanks so much! The pillow was a One Kings Lane purchase. xo cristin
