Long Beach Black Contemporary Modern L-Shaped Kitchen and Bathroom Remodel with Custom Sophia Line Cabinets
After devoting much time and effort into finding a contractor that could execute their vision, the owners of this beautiful Long Beach home chose APlus to renovate their kitchen. With our help and expertise, they were able to transform their old kitchen and bathrooms into spaces that now match their sleek and modern personal style.
The original kitchen was actually quite stylish, but its handsome look was far too traditional for the tastes of the new homeowners. Between the dark hardwood cabinets, granite countertops, and marbled tile flooring, it felt too old school to mesh with the hip, youthful vibe of the clients. The bathrooms, on the other hand, didn’t even have beauty on their side. Their plain white countertops and walls didn’t complement the murky green accent tiles or the ashen-toned hardwood floors, resulting in a look that was simply drab.
The clients decided to keep the original L-Shaped layout, but otherwise wanted the entire kitchen gutted. We replaced the flooring with au naturale wire brush French white oak provided by the clients, creating a warm, golden brown base to work upon. A full height tile backsplash was installed upon most of the wall space, using Eleganza’s Nueva Laguna Typhoon mosaic tiles. Their metallic accents and mixture of charcoal and earth tones tie together the color of the floors and the new custom cabinets we built.
Our proprietary Sophia Line cabinets were truly custom made for the homeowners. Not only did we design a whole new layout for their cabinetry, we also provided them with exclusive cuts rendered in our warehouse, enabling them to have uniquely shaped cabinets of superior quality. The clients chose Euro style construction with Slab horizontal doors, and a dark, striated Caarbone finish upon the Sophia Veneer. We even used the Sophia cabinets to build an oversized kitchen island complete with a seating area and butcher’s block. Shining silver hardware made up all the handles and drawer pulls, adding a modern gleam to the overall look. All countertops were made from Pental’s Lattice white quartz with a 1 ½” straight edge, introducing more contrast to the space.
The same custom style Sophia cabinets and Pental quartz countertops were installed in both the master bathroom. Eleganza’s Loft style porcelain tiles in a creamy Perla finish were selected for the new open shower’s floor and walls. In the hall bathroom, Sophia cabinets were also built, but this time with a rustic Cokalda Artika finish.
To complete the contemporary modern look of the new kitchen, we turned to the Viking Professional Series of stainless steel appliances. A 36” Wall Mount Canopy Range Hood was installed over the 36” Pro-Style Gas Range, and to the right, a 48” Quiet Cool Built-In Side by Side Refrigerator with Glass Shelves rests within the construction of the cabinets. On the far side of the kitchen a 2 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave Oven, Viking Professional Custom Series was also built into the cabinetry. The main kitchen sink is a shining white Franke Farmhouse 33” Single Bowl Apron Front Fireclay, while the vegetable sink in the kitchen island is a Franke 15” Undermount Single Bowl Fireclay. The bathroom features somewhat similar style sinks, Kohler’s Vessel models.
