Our Project Reveal: Chic & Contemporary
I previously shared that we had the pleasure of working on a huge renovation project in Glenn Dale, Maryland not too far from Bowie in Prince George’s County, MD.
I’m so pleased that after over a year of working with the clients that we are done and it’s reveal day. Since this was such a huge project I’m going to break down the major spaces in separate blog posts. If I didn’t this blog post would seem endless.
So let’s kick things off with the kitchen.
The kitchen is combined with the dining room and living room for a large open concept space that the family will spend a lot of time. Unfortunately, the clients home had fire damage but we were happy to come in and lead the design to help them rebuild.
I’ll share some progress photos so you can see a little of what we started out with in the kitchen area.
Our main concept is to give this home a clean contemporary look with some glam. Our color scheme is gray along with a rust orange color and emerald green with gold fixtures and stainless steel appliances. See below for renderings and mood boards we developed to help the clients envision the space during the construction phase.
We went with my favorite gray for the wall color which is Mindful Gray from Sherwin Williams. It’s the perfect gray when you don’t want too cool or too warm tones.
We opted for a dark mineral hue engineered hardware flooring which matches the other wood and laminate flooring in the house.
We selected custom cabinetry featuring two-tone cabinets with white uppers and stained gray base cabinets along with the island. A few of the cabinet doors included frosted glass inserts.
The kitchen also features a 9-ft center island with a two-tiered quartz countertop with seating for four. For the countertops, we used a Calacatta gold quartz. Granite would have been a little too busy for our clean aesthetic. The clients love soft textures so we went with gray tufted and gold base stools.
One of my favorite things about this beautiful kitchen is the custom hood. We didn’t want to do the standard stainless steel so a custom hood with gold trim was the perfect choice. It also just so turned out to match the stained base cabinets almost exactly.
Now take a look at the gorgeous backsplash featuring geometric shapes with a gold outline. The tile came in two different sizes but the large is just what we needed to add more rich detail to the kitchen. It took forever for it to come back in stock but well worth the wait.
We have recessed lighting throughout the kitchen and went with gold pendant lights over the island.
Well, thanks for following along our extensive chic and contemporary home renovation. Do you have any grand kitchen ideas but don’t know where to start? Let’s schedule a chat to discuss.
