Home Remodeling: Adding a Pop of Color

Houzz brings us inside the transformation of a home improvement project. Home remodeling requires careful planning. A married couple from Boston is looking to update the kitchen in their Victorian home that they have lived in for more than a decade. Jodi Swartz and her team at Kitchen Visions was hired to reconfigure the kitchen layout, while preserving the architectural details. One of the first remodeling projects included replacing the brown kitchen cabinets with new ones. The cabinets were covered in a Benjamin Moore’s Application to lighten up the space.

The original layout included two staircases that merged into one. The staircase in the kitchen utilized too much space. In order to be creative, extra space was gained by eliminating the kitchen staircase and adding an additional row of lower cabinets to maximize storage. The extra wall of cabinetry included a built-in microwave, dishwasher, and main sink.  This new design makes the kitchen functional and aesthetically appealing.

Appliances are now available with abundant color customizations. Small burst of colors can make a kitchen pop. Swartz was able to incorporate a bold red range and a new built-in red refrigerator. The creamy cabinetry helps increase the presence of the red refrigerator and range, making it a focal point of the remodel.  To brighten the kitchen interior and keep the kitchen feeling open, the design team covered the wall in a classic white subway tile. Some other design features of the kitchen renovation included black granite countertops, new cabinet hardware, and pendant lighting. The kitchen island was modernized and topped with marble-look quartz that features a prep sink.

Kitchen renovations improve the overall function, creates a beautiful remodeled space, and adds value to your home. Pick design elements that match your style and preference. If you need inspiration for your kitchen remodel and would like to see more details of this kitchen transformation,
