For reasons we may never fully grasp, the concept of dream kitchens seems to have become automatically associated with huge, sprawling kitchen spaces. As a famous somebody probably once said, it just ain't true. In fact, small dream kitchen makeovers have surged in popularity over the past decade, offering a generous swath of advantages that make them all the more appealing. A few include:
- Differentiating yours from the many cookie-cutter kitchen designs
- Adding more curb appeal and value to condos and smaller homes
- To accommodate or inspire your new hobby cooking or baking
- Changing your day to day perspective within more confined spaces
- Updating the previous owner's aged or outdated kitchen décor
Regardless of the specific reasons behind your quest towards a micro kitchen remodeling masterpiece, we thought we would take the liberty of walking you through one of our own McKenna's Kitchen & Bath team member's recent remodeling endeavors. We'll keep this brief and let the pictures do most of the talking.
New Cabinets Installed
Older cabinets were replaced with a cleaner looking Shaker style, done in an alder wood chestnut finish. Read More
We went with a stylish new Corian countertop in a rich concrete color, with a beveled edge for emphasis and a distinct look.
Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink
An older sink was upgraded to the 16-gauge stainless steel featured in these photos. The under mount we used a 60/40 double bowl design.
New Kitchen Faucet
Price Pfister makes some of the best stainless kitchen faucets out there, and this one is complemented with a snazzy pull-down faucet.
An all-glass linear blend tile backsplash really makes the new kitchen décor scheme come alive!
Tile Kitchen Flooring
For the new tile flooring we installed a gorgeous, larger earth-tone porcelain tile. It's perfect for giving smaller spaces a much grander feel.
Under Cabinet Lighting
Under-cabinet LED lights add a completely new dynamic to any smaller kitchen. It brightens up the prep area and perfectly showcases the custom tile backsplash at night.
Modern Kitchen Lighting
To give this small kitchen makeover the perfect finishing touch, we installed a Pendant light directly above the sink.
