Guest post and giveaway from COCOCOZY
Hi there! This is Coco from the COCOCOZY blog, here for another guest post! I’m so thrilled to be here on Interior Collective once again. Today, I bring you a wonderful kitchen transformation: a small dark kitchen turned into a functional and pretty space. Los Angeles based architect Tom Newman of Newman & Wolen reinvented this kitchen into what it is today. I personally took the “after” photos on my own private kitchen tour of this remodel!
Here are the before pictures of this kitchen. As you can see, the room was very basic. No style, some function – not at all the heart of the home that it could be.
Tom’s client loves to cook and entertain, so she needed a space in which she could do both. The kitchen plan called for widening the space by removing an adjacent laundry room, changing the cabinets to bright white, and literally redoing all of the surfaces… from backsplash, to flooring, to counters. Here is the amazing after.
A key addition was the large kitchen island with a white Caesarstone a countertop. The island also includes a small counter that fits one counter stool – a place where the homeowner can enjoy a cup of coffee. The expansive work area now allows her to cook, entertain, and enjoy the space all at the same time.
In addition to new Caesarstone counters, the plan also called for an industrial style integrated stainless steel counter and sink – a high design touch.
Stainless steel appliances, a revamped breakfast nook, and lots of storage space round out this redo. The key here is that even a small kitchen can feel quite spacious with the right floor plan and proper choice of materials.
From blah and bland to bright and cheerful, this kitchen’s before and after shows you can successfully transform a small space into one that feels comfortably grand!
I Hope you enjoyed this little before and after. Looking forward to bringing you more tips and inspiration!
