White G-Shaped Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel with Custom Cabinetry in Irvine
We helped an Irvine family make their home feel brighter and fresher with renovations throughout the house, including the living, bathroom, and kitchen.
Prior to demolition, this kitchen was old and generic. With outdated oak cabinets, mismatching appliances, and busily patterned flooring, it was hardly easy on the eyes. One great feature was the large greenhouse-style window section with a view of the yard. Thanks to that, the kitchen had the potential to be beautifully airy and bright. The living room and adjacent bathroom was also in much need of a facelift.
The clients decided to keep the original G-shaped layout in order to maximize the amount of counter space and storage. We started by knocking out all of the old cabinetry and replacing it with custom-built constructions that made a more efficient use of the space available. Euro face & frame style cabinets in paint grade maple feature both Jianas and Shaker doors. They were given a Straight White finish. To add to the pristine look, we topped the cabinets with subtle Marble Express countertops in Galaxy White.
Much of the wall surface in the kitchen was covered with a tile backsplash, specifically Eleganza tiles in Vivaldi Winter – a cool dove gray.
We relaid the flooring with planks from the Johnson Hardwood Pacific Coast series in the Palisades finish to give the neutral-toned kitchen a warm base. This hardwood was extended through the living room, and into the bathroom as well.
The corner cabinet was taken out of the living room, freeing up the space for seating. We refaced the old stone fireplace with sleek, modern Metalwood Argento tiles. In the bathroom, we kept things simple by installing a dark corner cabinet for the sink, with the same marbled surface as the kitchen.
In order to give the kitchen a neater appearance than it originally had, it was important to select matching appliances. The client opted for a stainless steel theme. We installed an LG 3 Door French Door Refrigerator to be flush with the cabinetry. A GE Profile 30” Free-Standing Gas Range was topped with a Kobe Premium Wall Mount Hood. Next to the Blanco Diamond Super Single Dual Mount Sink was placed a stainless steel dishwasher with a minimalistic design.
