First Friday Feature: A Beautiful Sky Blue Kitchen

Starting the new year fresh off the bat, we thought it would be fitting to feature a kitchen updated and revived with new finishes and a fresh new look. Just like many of us view the new year, we see it as a new beginning, a fresh start so to speak. The same goes for many things in our lives, such as our kitchens! Many times, a kitchen does not need a complete gut, rather more of a cosmetic redo. Which is exactly what we’ve done here! This particular kitchen already had great bones and beautiful sky blue cabinetry, it just needed some finishing touches to get that make-over look. To learn more, continue reading below!


With cabinetry already having a fresh sky blue color, we didn’t have to touch the cabinets. However, by lowering the pony wall, and dropping it to cabinet-height, really helped to open up the kitchen. The original countertops were a dark and outdated tile application that needed a redo. So out with the old and in with the new 3 cm Cambria Quartz in Ella. The brightness of the new countertops was a much-needed cosmetic change for this kitchen space to liven up!


The original backsplash was an outdated light-brown 4×4″ square installed in a mixture of straight and diamond lay. The new backsplash was a Daltile Artigiano 3×6 glazed ceramic wall tile in Italian Alps. This tile has a hand-painted look with irregular edges, giving it a hand-made look.

Fixtures and Fittings

To complete this kitchen, a new sink, faucet, and hardware is a must! From Blanco, we have a Diamond super single bowl in a granite composite sink in the color Truffle (441765), and Meridian semi-professional faucet in Satin Nickel (440557). Lastly, the new hardware on the cabinetry are Amerock Blackrock pulls in Satin Nickel (BP55276-G10).
