44 – Westminster – Kitchen Remodel


Even in small kitchens, it’s remarkable just how dramatic the difference can be after a professional renovation. Such was the case with this kitchen in a Westminster home. We were called in to do a full-scale remodel of the modest original kitchen, which plain white tile countertops and dated oak cabinets. The homeowner requested a look that was sleek and modern, and made the most of the space available. We started by taking out the harsh overhead lighting, refacing the ceiling, and installing minimalistic recessed lights. Next, we moved on to rebuilding the base structure with custom cabinetry in an espresso brown finish, with crown molding and polished silver hardware. Unique touches include electric outlets built into some parts of the cabinetry, a pull-out hatch over the fridge, and open sections for the placement of new stainless steel appliances.

Pale gray countertops were installed, as well as a full-height tile backsplash on the walls, made up of glossy white rectangular bricks laid horizontally. In the dining area we also built new structures, including extra cabinet storage, a bar area with an undermount sink, and a china cabinet with glass panels for displaying the owner’s collection of elegant glassware.
