Before and After – Kitchen Inspiration by Troy Pavelka of Normandy Builders

Before and After - Kitchen Inspiration by Troy Pavelka of Normandy Builders Before and After - Kitchen Inspiration by Troy Pavelka of Normandy Builders

The brief was to update, modernize and expand this small apartment-like kitchen.  The clients  asked Troy Pavelka of Normandy Builders to transform the space from the narrow galley style kitchen into somewhere the clients would feel comfortable cooking together in.  They also wanted to update the space from multi-tenant space to a larger single family style home.  Most importantly, they wanted the kitchen to more closely match their modern and clean aesthetic.

Because the home was previously sub-divided for tenant space, the reshaping of the kitchen area expanded into a broader scoped project.  The project ballooned into a mudroom, walk-in pantry and family room reconfiguration.  Due to the age of the house (approximately 90 years old) there were several technical issues to address; including very uneven floors, antiquated plumbing and mechanical systems and the main plumbing stack right at the area of kitchen expansion.

Through careful design consideration, Troy was  able to expand the kitchen space to the rear of the home.  Instead of the narrow, cramped galley style kitchen he was able to transform the space into a much more functional L-shaped kitchen with ample room for two cooks.  With the selection of the dark stained cabinetry, flat panel door style, sleek stainless steel over-sized hardware, glass back splash tile and translucent quartzite counter tops we more than satisfied their desire for a modern aesthetic.

The horizontal glass awning style cabinets  reinforced the desired modern lines, the glass backsplash tile echoed the texture and color tones of the glass cabinets and further reinforced the modern aesthetic and the exaggerated Hafele hardware mounted on the clean slab doors  became a striking design element.
