Get Inspired From Five Great CliqStudios Kitchen Remodels
July 9, 2013Guest Blogger
Are you struggling to find the right ideas to update your kitchen? These five kitchen remodels from CliqStudios customers may give you the inspiration you need to kick your remodel into high gear.
Traditional & Timeless
Carrie from North Dakota was over her dark, dated cabinets and pastel laminate counters. The closed-in layout and mismatched appliances had to go too.
With her CliqStudios designer, Carrie reworked her space. She upgraded to light maple cabinets and granite counters. She also added an L-shape kitchen island with barstool seating. New stainless steel appliances were the icing on the cake!
Red Brick Contemporary
Yellowed cabinets with wood trim and mismatched appliances clashed with Deanna’s vision of the perfect contemporary home. Her kitchen needed an update.
The 15-foot brick wall remained the focal point of the space. Clean dark shaker cabinets, gray slate flooring, white marble counters complement nicely with the rough brick. A sleek new refrigerator, range and hood complete this kitchen remodel.
Wonderful in White
Jennifer had striped oak cabinets, laminate counters, and mismatched dark appliances. It certainly wasn’t the glam kitchen she wanted.
New stainless steel appliances, an enlarged island, and shaker cabinets topped with an elegant marble counter helped her pull off an amazing, all-white transformation.
From Disaster to Designer Fresh
Jenifer was oping to sell her 1909 Craftsman bungalow in Seattle. However, she knew the untouched “charm” and acid turquoise cabinetry would probably scare off buyers. A kitchen remodel was needed — and fast!
Jennifer wrapped up her remodel from the beach while on vacation. Painted Carbon cabinets pair nicely with light butcher block counters. Upper open shelving instead of cabinets keeps the space feeling airy.
Time for an Upgrade
The dated style of the early ‘90s wasn’t cutting it for Ken and his kitchen. He set his sights on getting rid of the linoleum flooring, soffits, and dark cabinetry in particular.
The layout worked great for Ken’s family but some slight modifications added both form and function. A reimagined island with seating for two, hardwood flooring, and full-height cabinets with crown molding created a timeless, high-end look.
