Renovation of a 1960s Galley Kitchen
Updated: Apr 19, 2020
Our client came to us wanting to renovated his 1960s kitchen. It was his late wife's dream to update that kitchen so he decided he wanted to make her dreams come true. If that doesn't melt your heart, then I don't know what will! He wanted to replicate the same kitchen design as his neighbors across the street that we were finishing up (reference Beaverton Addition Project).
Leaving the floor plan as is, we demo'ed the entire space and got to work! Working with our favorite cabinet shop, Premiere Kitchens & Cabinets, we ordered these creamy white shaker cabinets with black handles making the design classically elegant. Subway tile is all the rage right now. It's what every client wants because it compliments just about any style. We provide efficient and smart storage by mounting hook racks next to the stove to provide organizational efficiencies in a small space.
He decided he wanted to move forward with a quartz countertop. Quartz is easier to maintain than other materials and offers a large variety of colors and patterns. Many of our client's opt for this material versus granite or laminate. We installed grey engineered hardwood floors which is another design trend that we are seeing everywhere. Even though it's a cooler tone, it helps bring some textural interest into the space. Plus the white tones in the floor bring the space together.
The client loved it because he knew his wife would have loved it! This project holds a special place in our hearts. Let us know what you think.
