Cleveland Heights Kitchen Remodel

A small, traditional Cleveland Heights kitchen was transformed into a bright, modern space complete with custom Amish-made cabinetry.  The renovation included closing off the second door to the living room, while keeping the door to the dining room.  The original window and exterior door were replaced with Pella – allowing for more natural light and better energy efficiency.  The design also called for adding an awning window over the new farm-sink, which had been relocated to overlook the backyard, rather than the neighbor’s driveway.  Sleek, white, floor to ceiling custom cabinetry, complete with cutlery and utensil drawers, pull-out shelves, knife drawer, tray divider, and spice drawer, keeps the kitchen light and airy. Every inch of the original room was utilized to create a modern, functional space where the family can easily entertain and enjoy their new kitchen for years to come.

Traditional elements with contemporary flair is the hallmark of this kitchen. Custom-made floor to ceiling cabinetry with full-overlay slab style doors with satin nickel knobs and pulls utilize every inch of the space.

A new, compact dishwasher was added to the space - a must-have with a family that likes to cook and entertain. The sink was relocated to overlook the backyard through the new Pella awning window. The new, Pella out-swing door onto the deck allows for an easy transition when entertaining in the warm Cleveland months.

Dark quartz countertops off-set the bright, white cabinetry and dark, hardwood floors bring warmth to an otherwise, cool-toned kitchen. New Pella windows allow for tons of natural light.

New stainless appliances round-out the Cleveland Heights kitchen overhaul.

Creating a thoughtful, functional space is crucial when designing a small kitchen. The range area included a spice drawer and tray divider in the custom-made cabinets.

The original doorway to the living room was taken out - leaving the kitchen accessible only from the dining room and allowing for more cabinet space. A breakfast bar/homework area was designed into the space. This area boasts an integrated cork board, flush with the blue-green linear mosaic backsplash. A tall pantry with pull-out shelving allows for easy access to larger appliances and food storage.

The large, Rohl Shaws Modern apron-sink speaks to the traditional side of the home, offset by the satin nickel Moen Align pull-down faucet, adding which adds a contemporary touch.

The Crate and Barrel bamboo pendants soften the sleek space.

The corner cabinet gives additional storage space in this cozy Cleveland Heights kitchen.

A custom knife drawer is included in the solid, maple cabinets with soft-close hinges and slides and dovetailed drawers.
