For our First Friday Feature this month, when you look at the before image and see how the space transformed, you probably won’t believe it’s the same space! Part of this is because we took out unnecessary walls and also incorporated an island which really opened up the space. In addition, we rearranged the layout by moving the sink, cooking area and fridge, making the space more efficient. With a little TLC, the space brightened up with new cabinets, new swanky backsplash, and beautiful countertops to name a few. If you want to learn more about this space, keep reading and get inspired!


As you’ve seen in the before photo, the existing cabinetry was a little dull, and all the finishes almost blended together with the same brownish finish. So, to brighten up the space, we incorporated new cabinetry from Kitchen Craft in Maple wood, Chelsea door style, with a Millstone painted finish. What a difference this makes!

Countertops and Backsplash

Now for a little pizazz, new countertops and backsplash! The countertops are a 3cm Sienna Light Bordeaux granite with an ogee edge. The vibrant backsplash is from Daltile in the Raindrop collection in Blanc et Beige finish. The backsplash was taken to the tops of the cabinets which give it a great impact on the space. We love the combination of these finishes which gives this kitchen a lively feel!


To finish off the space, we need fixtures! The main kitchen faucet & bar faucet is from Delta in the Addison collection which is a single handle pull-down in Arctic Stainless. The kitchen sink is from Blanco in the ONE collection in Stainless Steel, and the bar sink is from Blanco in the STELLAR collection in Stainless Steel.

We hope we got your inspired this Friday and hope to see you again next month!
