This kitchen collaboration Atlanta Curb Appeal (ACA) just wrapped up features new wide-open spaces, a gorgeous centerpiece island, and stunningly refinished maple hardwoods. This remodel was in the home of a former client; ACA previously redesigned the homeowner’s master bathroom.
The biggest challenge of remodeling this space was opening up the room. ACA had to remove some walls and take a fireplace out of the room to make it more spacious. We ended up installing double LVL (laminated veneer lumber) beams to provide support. When renovating your home, quality is paramount.
Next up, ACA tackled restoring the hardwood floors that were previously installed in the home. The wood was a maple, which can be a delicate wood to refinish. ACA fixed some previous installation issues, sanded, and refinished the floors. Everyone was surprised and pleased with how great they turned out!
The main event in this modern kitchen renovation is the waterfall island. This is a popular modern design feature. It keeps the island from having boxy edges, giving the space clean lines. It also provided additional durability. It hides boxy appliances: in this case, the microwave. Also, it showcases the beautiful countertop material more dramatically. The homeowner chose quartz, a popular choice for a waterfall island because it is manufactured. Quartz is extremely durable, has vast color and design options, and is easy to maintain. Cabinets in the island were painted grey to make it a focal point of the kitchen. We think it looks gorgeous!
With the additional corner bar, island, and traditional counter space, ACA was able to add about 40 square feet of additional counter space. Now, there is a space for everything. Overall, they opened up the kitchen and gave it a more modern look and a more functional set-up. The homeowner was extremely pleased and said these pictures do not do the kitchen justice!
Another project ACA completed while in the home, was taking down the old laundry room and adding a bathroom. To make up for it, ACA extended the area into the garage to create a new laundry room plus new pantry! Now there is a brand new space between the garage and the kitchen!
