Semi-Custom Cabinets with Abundant Storage
The kitchen is the hub of life for most families. This gorgeous traditional kitchen features cherry Countryside cabinets and a stunning Formica countertop. New hardwood floors add warm character to this open kitchen conversion.
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.
Full-extension drawers and pull-out pantry shelves provide a resting place for every pot, pan, and snack. Everything is easy to see and reach.
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.
Dated cabinets and limited access to natural light left this 1950s kitchen feeling dreary and cramped. Removing the wall separating the kitchen and dining room created the space for the open concept design the homeowners were hoping for.
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.
