Mid-Century Modern Kitchen with Two-Tone Cabinets
Remodeling the kitchen is an investment in time and effort. When homeowners Scott and Michelle, a young couple in Florida, purchased their new home, they knew a remodel was in their near future. They envisioned a mid-century modern kitchen with two-tone cabinetry to replace the outdated and cramped space.
“If you saw the kitchen before you would understand,” says Scott. “At first we didn’t think it was that bad, but we changed our mind. We wanted to start from scratch.”
The undesirable features of the old kitchen added up. “The kitchen was too small and closed off. We wanted to open it up. The cabinets were dated and didn’t fit our style.,” said Scott.
Visual Interest via Two-tone Cabinetry
Scott and Michelle found their style via CliqStudios Style-31 cabinets with upper cabinets in the finish Bright White and lowers in stain Cherry Cider. Creating a two-tone kitchen added brightness and warmth to the room. The stain on the lower cabinets also adds a charming, built-in furniture look to the kitchen for visual interest.
“We love the two-tone. Everything tied together perfectly,” says Michelle.
Help from a Personal Kitchen Designer
A kitchen designer helps take ideas for a new look like two-tone cabinets and translates them into a seamless and functional design. “With design you have to visualize how everything is going to translate into a functional layout,” says Scott. CliqStudios kitchen designer Miranda worked with the couple, helping them navigate how to make the kitchen they envisioned into a real space [Where do I get the best design ideas?].
“It was so great working with our designer Miranda. She was so helpful with showing us how to visualize our kitchen. You become an expert in so many things you knew nothing about before. She was our mentor,” says Scott.
A Kitchen full of Space, Storage, and Style
The result is a sleek mid-century modern kitchen, full of space, storage, and style. “I love everything about it. The flat cabinets and sleek handles! Everything tied together perfectly,” says Michelle.
Having previously lived in a one-bedroom apartment, the remodel was a dramatic change for the couple. “Half our cabinets are still empty! We have so much space,” says Michelle.
The couple was also able to incorporate storage solutions to upgrade their kitchen and give it a custom feel. “We are sold on all of the bells and whistles. At first, I thought we didn’t need a super sink base but now I love it. I love the cutting board drawer. You don’t know what storage you need in your kitchen it until you have it.” says Michelle.
