If you scroll down our blog, you will see some “progress” pictures of this kitchen during demolition phase. These are a few shots of the finished product in a home in Cleveland Heights. The clients wanted to expand the footprint as the kitchen was undersized relative to the size of the home. We removed a wall and combined the kitchen with the former breakfast room.
The client opted to save money by not using a designer. They had very specific ideas about what they wanted. At our suggestion, they used Home Depot’s free kitchen design service and the results are darn good. The countertops are Absolute Black Granite (Honed with Super Darkener) sourced through our supplier. The backsplash is a crackle glaze subway tile – very tasteful and true to the spirit of the home. We restored the old pine flooring in the main kitchen area. Unfortunately, due to water damage and buckling, much of the oak in the old breakfast area had to be replaced. But it still looks original to the home. I love the mix of old, old-inspired and new.
