Before & After: Dena’s Kitchen Renovation
Dena and her husband remodeled their condo’s kitchen and rescued it from the 80’s! Inspired by a French-style kitchen on Pinterest they opened up the space and exposed the arched window, letting in more light. They added Modern Bracket + Marble shelves from west elm in place of some of the upper cabinets…
We removed the U-Shape island and the upper cabinet to the right of the arched window over the sink. In its place, we extended the length of the cabinets to just before the main window, then used west elm’s Marble Shelves with the Modern Brackets in place of the upper cabinet. Every person that’s entered the room since remarks that they never noticed the arched window until now.
We ripped out the old faux tile floors and replaced it with a rich, deep brown. We replaced the original cabinets using dark cabinets on the bottom and light cabinets for the uppers and tall spaces.
We replaced the double sink with a wide and deep farmer style sink, which has proven to be far more effective and useful despite being 6″ shorter.
We removed the shutters from the windows which immediately opened up the space.
