Olive Street Kitchen Redesign
Before the redesign, the Olive Street kitchen was dated and aesthetically disjointed from the rest of the house. To reconcile this, the remodel built upon on a contemporary aesthetic established in a newly renovated bathroom, while incorporating a nod to period-style elements of this historic home.
To capture a retro-vibe with a timeless yet “of the moment” appeal, Darlene paired contemporary cabinetry with classic, oversized retro-inspired subway tile on the walls, quartz counter tops and accessorized the space with a vintage-inspired, globe-pendant light.
Another important consideration was improving the functionality of the space – all within budget. Instead of making costly changes to the layout, Darlene focused the budget on new cabinetry and appliances to improve work performance and organizational flow. A redesign of the lighting scheme further improved its function and enhanced the ambience of the space. Comprised of three layers of dimmable LED lighting, the energy-efficient lighting significantly improves visibility while creating a dynamic and appealing atmosphere.
