Traditional Style with an Open Plan

Mike and Sarah purchased their 1956-built rambler on a quiet street in 2013. As their family grows, they want to enjoy their home’s character and location. In addition to needing new, quality cabinets – this couple wanted to create an open floor plan to enjoy by connecting the kitchen and dining room.

Semi-Custom Cabinets with Abundant Storage

In order to open up the space and let more light into the kitchen, New Spaces removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room and replaced it with a peninsula. While the homeowners initially hoped for an island, it turns out that a peninsula worked better for their space. Attached to the wall, a peninsula adds seating and storage while conserving floor space in the kitchen.

Their #1 need: new cabinets

When the homeowners met with New Spaces, their number one priority was new cabinets. Their old kitchen had nowhere near enough storage to control the clutter! The solution: two courses of handsome cherrywood cabinets. Designed to make use of every single inch of linear space, these semi-custom cabinets tuck into the corner and wrap around the fridge.

Beautiful details on a budget

You might not believe it but this countertop isn’t stone – it’s Formica! This true-to-scale granite replica countertop is made from high-pressure laminate that will stand up to daily use. A tile backsplash runs straight to the bottom of the cabinets, providing full coverage and protection from splashes and stains. This diamond pattern backsplash features a square border and glass mosaic details. Laying tiles in a diamond pattern makes the space feel larger.
