When you live in a small residence, like a condo or a townhome, it’s hard to imagine ways to expand your space. Typically building an addition is out of the question – and therefore, so is the potential of adding square footage. If you don’t mind getting creative, however, there’s always room to grow! A recent client living in a small condo in Springfield, VA was feeling exactly that way when she called us in for help. Her kitchen was feeling claustrophobic and she was desperate for a solution to her storage woes.
The owners of this kitchen were looking to update the cabinets without the expense of replacing them. We painted them a fresh white (with a durable paint designed to withstand everyday use in high traffic areas) to brighten the space; chose leathered granite for a relaxed, yet elegant feel; added a new sink and fixture; and installed grey ceramic subway tile backsplash to achieve the modern, yet beachy look they wanted.
In this newly remodeled kitchen, located in Manassas, we paid special attention to detail when choosing the light fixtures, to complement the contemporary design. We also added extra crown molding to fill wasted space above the cabinets and give a streamlined look to the ceiling.
