New Project - C2 Residence
A new project that we're excited about is under construction and we haven't gotten around to posting anything about it so this post is image-filled and for the sake of clarity this post is divided into the different little parts of the larger project.
Starting with the Kitchen. The existing kitchen? Not great and the giant mass above the range is an overpowering and not very efficient use of space. Getting rid of that was priority number 1 (in the photo below from an early meeting you can see that we've already pulled off an ugly ornate trim piece).
The project started as just replacing the doors and painting the cabinet boxes. As we moved forward in the process we realized that the difference between that and all new kitchen cabinets wasn't that large. An inefficient layout and inexpensive hardware made the decision to go to new cabinets even easier. To add some contrast and to tie the newly renovated kitchen in with the other parts of the project and some existing furniture the island was changed to walnut. In addition the glass panel door was replaced by a 6' slider and a new window was added in the kitchen.
