Family’s New Home Needs TLC

New to Virginia and looking to update a recently purchased home, a family approached Abbey Design Center. They dreamed of a kitchen that looked ‘straight out of a magazine.’ Their existing space was small, outdated. The family needed some major kitchen design and layout changes in order to become their dream kitchen.

Building their Magazine-Worthy Dream Kitchen

The home needed some major construction in order to re-work the kitchen layout. First, the construction team began with demolition. To make the home feel more spacious, the Abbey team removed the wall that separated the dining and cooking area and trimmed the load-bearing beam for the ceiling. The next project was to relocate the HVAC exchange and built-in pantry. This relocation helped to create a lot more storage space for their new kitchen design.

Implementing the Kitchen Design

Once the construction was complete, the newly finished space was ready for the stylish kitchen design elements. The Abbey Team then began installation. They installed hardwood floors, off-white cabinets, and a contrasting espresso island with granite countertops. They topped the new island with a stainless steel vent hood and cooktop. The homeowners worked closely with Abbey Design Center to carefully select the glass subway tile backsplash. The backsplash coordinated with their smoky-colored, glass pendant lighting to add an extra flare and help give the kitchen a stunning ‘magazine’ look. To finish off the space, Abbey replaced the outdated popcorn ceiling with a smooth finish. Finally, Abbey topped off the kitchen with a fresh coat of paint.
