Kitchen Renovation: Before & After

Before and After: A kitchen renovation by Interior Designer Katy Hines

Hey, y’all! I hope your week is off to a fantastic start! Mine sure is, due in large part to this blog post! I spent part of the day editing these photos and they just make me so happy. SummerHouse Designer Katy Sanders did a beautiful job renovating this kitchen for some clients and the results are just astounding!

Here’s what Katy was working with:

This kitchen had not been updated since this house was built almost 20 years ago. The clients were open to doing whatever needed to be done to fully update it, so as you can see in the above photo, Katy fully gutted it. They moved the gas line so the cook top could go in between the windows to create a focal point. Before, there had not really been a nice place for the eye to fall, so moving that, adding the vent-a-hood, and running the backsplash all the way up to the ceiling created just that!

The island was a bit dated, so Katy straightened that up and got it looking extra fab with some cleaner lines and cute barstools. She redid all the lighting, redesigned all the cabinetry, and added wood flooring throughout to create a little warmth. She selected those beautiful Quartzite countertops and proved that mixing metal finishes can be beautiful when done correctly (ahem, like when you hire a SummerHouse designer!)

Because paint colors are always such a hot topic, I’ll go ahead and answer the question that I know many of you have in your head (because I asked it in my head, too!) Benjamin Moore Hale Navy on the paint color Katy used on the island πŸ˜‰

After Katy’s magic touch, this kitchen functions better, has been brought into the current decade, and is so stunning that it made its way onto a design blog! πŸ˜‰ Beautiful work, Katy Sanders. You never cease to amaze us.

Thanks so much for stopping by Always Summer! Stay warm out there πŸ™‚

  1. The walls are Manchester Tan from Ben Moore, and the trim/cabinetry color was matched to another existing color in the house. It was very close to Ben Moore’s White Dove, though! Hope that helps! πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading!!
