In our latest kitchen remodel in Hillsborough, NC, we removed the existing wood cabinets and appliances and upgraded to two-toned shaker-style cabinets that now go up to the ceiling. Changing out the laminate countertops to Level 5 Quartz made quite an impact but the real show-stopper was replacing the outdated peninsula!
The existing two-tiered peninsula wrapped around the room closing off the space. The outdated wooden cabinets helped the peninsula disappear into the kitchen. Now, the maritime-colored shaker-style cabinets create a focal point in the kitchen and the gorgeous Quartz countertops lighten and brighten the room. The one-level straight peninsula with open shelving above it opens up the space creating a light and airy feel. This kitchen already had beautiful pendant lights. By adding a third pendant light, we were able to open up the peninsula even more.
In this remodel, we extended the changes beyond the kitchen by also painting the family room and hallway, changing the existing stop-valve for the sink, and installing a new toilet in the half bath downstairs. We also refinished the floors on the first floor of the home. Originally, the floor had an oil-based polyurethane finish. We sanded the floors and refinished them with a more durable, water-based, 2-part polyurethane finish that lightens up the home.
