It wasn’t until I started cooking regularly that I realized I had been taking my kitchen sink for granted. Previously, my only bonding time with the kitchen sink had been living in an apartment with no dishwasher (never again). Now that I had decided to eat more than instant ramen noodles and anything microwavable, I had discovered the delicate balance between the chef and the kitchen sink. Suddenly I had more than just flatware and cereal bowls to pile into my twin-sided stainless steel tub. Muffin tins, cutting boards, blender tops, crock pots, wine glasses – my dirty dishes are varied and my sink is too small!
This single dad with young sons wanted a “hip” yet functional kitchen. He wanted a space to entertain friends and prepare amazing meals for his children. We wanted a space that reflects this dad’s one-of-a-kind personality so we went with a comfortable and contemporary look. Bold colors, stainless steel accents, and some personal touches were used to give this dad the kitchen of his dreams.

They say that all good things come full cycle and that is certainly true for the Retro look of this Dallas kitchen. Inspired by a 50s diner, we were able to re-utilize the clients’ existing diner booths and decoratives. We remodeled the space to make it much more open, added diner-esque stainless steel shelves, incorporated green and blue tiles reminiscent of this time period and even added a retro metal cover to a new refrigerator to round out the look.
