07 Nov Remodel Round Up: Refreshing the Kitchen in Sisters
In a family home, the kitchen is often the nucleus for gathering. When its look becomes dated, this can throw off the spirit of the entire household. To keep a vibrant mood in this Sisters dwelling, a contemporary kitchen remodel to modernize color scheme, texture and appliances was commissioned.
Using the same footprint, a variety of materials for contrast and depth were chosen. First, to fully embrace the open floor plan, spatially limiting wing walls were removed. Then, to add warm grounding, a hickory hardwood floor was laid. Next, modern cabinets, dark and light, were installed, complimented by a light quartz countertop. Used daily as a surface for cooking, quartz looks good, cleans up easily and reigns supreme in terms of functionality.
Finally, handmade multi-tone sage green subway ceramic backsplash was laid throughout the kitchen. If quartz is the family countertop of choice, the same is true for kitchen wall infill and subway tile. Originally created by east coast fabricators at the turn of the century, its sleek and easy-to-clean design has ushered this 3 x 6 classic tile motif across the continent and into many central Oregon kitchens.
Who says you can’t have it all? Fashion, function and family all rolled into one high desert kitchen. Plus, the occupants of this remodel loved the handmade wood cutting board embossed with their surname, gifted with a project.
