Kitchen Remodel for the Jennings

March 8, 2019

“More space” is something almost all homeowners want when they remodel. That may translate into more storage space, opening up a space or even building a whole new space. If physically adding square footage is a bigger project than you’re ready for, Hatchett Design Remodel can still make your space look bigger. There are several tricks of our trade that create the illusion of space – three of which were applied in the Jennings’ kitchen remodel.

White works wonders when it comes to making a space look larger. It reflects and bounces light around the room, which makes the space appear brighter and more airy.  To achieve this effect, we replaced the Jennings’ dark stained cabinets with white painted cabinets from Ultracraft‘s Frameless Full Access collection.

The height of the cabinets also plays a significant role in making their remodeled kitchen look larger. Cabinets that extend all the way to the ceiling pull the eye up, thereby making you think the room is bigger than it was before.

Their new cabinets also create more actual space for additional storage. The Jennings chose a few special features for their new cabinets, including a Lazy Susan base cabinet, a pull-out pantry, a pull-out trash can cabinet, and a broom pantry closet.

Flooring for Flow

While their white cabinets pull your eye up and around the room, the color of their new flooring pulls you through the space. Before the remodel, the Jennings’ kitchen floor was a different color than the flooring in the adjacent room. The stark contrast between the two types of flooring broke up the space rather than pulling the rooms together. We improved the visual flow between the spaces by installing LVT with the same dark tone as the floors in their dining area.
