RedesignKC worked with a young family to make their Leawood, Kansas kitchen remodel fit both their aesthetic and functional needs. Shortly into the planning phase, the family learned that they were expecting a second child and this remodel became more important than ever, and the timeline all the more real.
The previous owners had painted the dated oak cabinetry and added new countertops, but the layout was lacking. The kitchen felt disconnected from the other spaces and had a large amount of wasted floor space.
The remodeled floorplan took out all existing cabinetry and removed the peninsula and bulky corner bar. The new design created an L-shaped kitchen with a large island. Semi-custom cabinetry was added in both white and a delicate contrasting gray color. Countertops are soft honed quartz and the backsplash is a glazed subway tile set in a herringbone pattern. Adjacent to the kitchen is a new storage area with bar storage. The interior of the glass-door bar cabinets is lined with a fashionable wall paper, adding interest in the crisp white space. From the leather bar stools to the brushed brass accessories, each texture and fixture is a soft but modernized compliment to the clean and bright kitchen.
