Kitchen Stories: Kitchen Remodel


Debra Zinn Interiors


We are just wrapping up our kitchen remodel at the  #rossburnproject. The homeowner is still making light fixture, breakfast table chairs and window treatment selections, but the actual kitchen is finally complete!  The homeowners wanted to remodel their kitchen, but knew that they could move a few years down the road,  so they wanted something that would look timeless. What I love about their decision is that they wanted to enjoy the kitchen while they still lived there.  So many improvements happen when homeowners are about to put it on the market and then they fall in love with their home again...right when they are moving out (something I have been guilty of myself)! Initially they only wanted to replace the  countertops and backsplash, but after talking about their overall vision of the space we agreed that we really needed to make more updates.  By refinishing the cabinets instead of ripping them out, we managed to save tens of thousands of dollars.  I also suggested flattening out their island from the two-tiered one they had.  It was not very functional, blocked off the view in the kitchen and made it look smaller.  We were able to customize the island and now the room  looks so much bigger and opened up the entire space . Marble is a beautiful timeless stone but can be high maintenance. We found a gorgeous quartz that looks like marble and it is virtually maintenance  free. The husband is an avid cook so I  knew they would enjoy having a deep sink instead of their shallow divided sink. We added a new faucet and hardware and the kitchen has been transformed.   The cherry on top.....the family I worked with could not have been nicer or more fun to work with!
