Today, I’m excited to share with you the full details and before and after of my recent Ledgewood project. My goal was to transform the original kitchen from a dark feeling space to an open, bright and fresh new kitchen within a reasonable budget. Take a peek into this black, white and brass kitchen makeover.
When I saw the space I knew right away I wanted to give it a wow factor. Taking it from ordinary to unique and fresh. By replacing the hood with a clean, stainless steel design, I was able to carry the marble backsplash all the up the wall, creating a beautiful surround for the whole kitchen. The 3″x6″, calacutta marble, subway tiles not only richened the space, but made it feel lighter and more open and airy.
Next, I refaced all the cabinetry to a white, shaker style. This gave the kitchen a more updated feel and made them appear taller and more substantial.
The clean lines of the cabinetry were carried through to the island, which I extended to provide a larger working surface. The crisp, clean countertops are diamond white quartz with a 2 1/2 inch mitered edge.
To add polish and shine, I added modern gold hardware and a new polished brass faucet. Then, I choose a large white farmhouse sink to compliment the polish of the quartz counters and add some character.
One of my favorite parts of the space is the kitchen nook. I was able to lighten it up and create room for more seating with a larger rectangular dining table. I choose a white, modern pendant light to keep the space bright and open and so the eye would fall to mix of pretty vintage textiles.
I choose a black and neutral palette to make the space feel warm yet refined and work with the existing dark hardwood floors. The pops of black from the dining chairs and mud cloth pillows paired well with the black and brass island pendants. These two kitchen pendants create stunning light and create a beautiful focal point in the kitchen.
I loved working on this project and seeing this kitchen transformation. Simple, clean elements create a powerful impact. Thank you for viewing the reveal of this kitchen makeover today. See all the resources and how to get the look below. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
