Sower Kitchen Remodel

September 20, 2019

There is more to a well-designed kitchen than meets the eye. Updating your cabinets, changing the fixtures, and replacing your appliances will make your kitchen look prettier, yes; but Hatchett Design Remodel understands that function is just as important as form. That’s why Mr. and Mrs. Sower chose us for the job.

BEFORE
Initial Consultation

Mr. and Mrs. Sower  love their home in Virginia Beach, but they knew their kitchen needed more than just updating. It lacked sufficient storage. The floor plan was not user-friendly. There was no “eat in” area to grab breakfast or for company to sit while they cook. The placement of the stove was not only awkward, it was unsafe. And the list goes on and on. Our design team couldn’t wait to get their hands on this kitchen!

The Design

After the initial consultation with Kevin, the Design Consultant, and Ashley, the Designer, we decided to rework the footprint of the Sowers’ kitchen. Changing the cabinet configuration from a galley style to more of a “U” shaped layout provided a lot more storage and counter space. It also allowed us to move the range to the center of the back wall, rather than having it jammed in the corner. This design choice was as much for form as it was for function. The range and hood became a focal point of the kitchen. The hood cabinet was built on site and installed by our own very talented Project Manager, who is aptly named “Art.”

The Materials

The cabinets are from Ultracraft‘s frameless Eurotek collection with the Jamestown door style. We topped the white cabinets with Atlantic Quartz. These light colored countertops with the white cabinets and white subway tile backsplash reflect light and make the Sowers’ kitchen appear larger. The white palette also creates the perfect backdrop to make that gorgeous range hood cabinet the star of the show.

Ashley’s design also called for swapping the placement of the sink and the refrigerator. We relocated the sink beneath the window – a much better alternative to staring at a wall while you wash dishes. During the day, there’s plenty of natural light that pours in through the kitchen window. In the evening, the space is illuminated by the three sconces above, providing both task lighting and ambiance.

We chose the vault undermount sink by Kohler, because it is sleek and refined. The Moen faucet, like the pulls from Top Knobs, have a matte black finish that creates contrast in the design.

The refrigerator was moved to the left wall in a bank of pantry cabinets. All appliances are from the GE Cafe Collection – supplied and installed by Ferguson.

The Sower family is glad they remodeled! When you’re ready to take the next step towards your new kitchen, reach out to Hatchett Design Remodel. You can call us or come by our showrooms in Newport News or Virginia Beach. Remember, “it costs nothing to ask!”
