Here’s a common question we get, “Should I replace my existing kitchen cabinets in Wheaton or paint them?” There’s quite a bit to consider but cabinetry age doesn’t matter so much as the current condition of them. Is it structurally sound? It also has a lot to with whether the current layout of the kitchen is good or not.
It’s not uncommon to buy a new home and want to make it your own. But that doesn’t always mean starting from scratch – because when something works, it works. At TKS Design Group, we believe in intentional design, not change for the sake of change. Especially when it comes to quality kitchen cabinets. Lead designer, Jennifer, was able to make the most of what worked in this space, while elevating the aesthetic to make the kitchen feel brand new.
This Wheaton kitchen is an example of just that. When the homeowners purchased the home in 2016, they made some initial updates. From painting to refinishing the floors, they began the process of making this house their own. When the time came to update the kitchen, they wanted to work with what they had to elevate the space, while also adding in the design details that were missing for them.
Not every space or kitchen requires starting from scratch to make new. Sometimes the layout is just right and the cabinets are in great shape. Instead, you can prioritize the aesthetic you seek within the scope of what you already have. That is exactly what this kitchen called for and it raises an important question –
When it comes to assessing the state of your kitchen cabinets, here are 3 considerations:
Details are always important and can truly transform a space where some features are going to remain the same. When working with existing kitchen cabinets and a layout that works, the details are what creates a truly custom design.
The new statement island in slate was added to make space for the microwave drawer which wasn’t a part of the original layout. The bold tone of the island adds contrast against light perimeter cabinetry painted in Benjamin Moore White Dove. A custom hood accommodates a new blower for an upgraded cooking experience. Quartz countertops paired with a marble backsplash pull everything together. Elevated plumbing fixtures in a polished nickel finish add a subtle sheen and loads of elegance.
This client cared a lot about the details of the design, but especially the light fixtures. When we understand what matters to our client, we can prioritize it as a part of our design and process.
