A Concept Board by Request (Sort Of)
This wasn’t a direct request, but as I’ve been helping to choose paint colors for a friend of mine, I thought I’d whip up a quick board for her kitchen remodel.
She has beautiful pre-existing slate flooring which meets up with hardwood in the adjoining living room. As it stands now, she has evergreen laminate counters and oak cabinetry. The room has a large bay in the attached breakfast nook, but because there is a large tree in the backyard, not much natural light actually filters in. The kitchen has amazing bones, it just needs a touch of contemporizing.
A significant portion of the budget is going towards new countertops since the counter surface is enormous in this kitchen.
Here’s what I came up with:
Pulling from the green tones that she loves from the slate flooring, the Georgian Green brings a splash of color for the backsplash area around the room.
The countertops are shown here in Caesarstone’s “Lagos Azul” which will immediately contemporize the entire space and create contrast from the lighter tones in the paint and cabinet colors.
And rather than replace the cabinetry, the room will be brightened with a fresh coat of paint in a white or eggshell.
As much as I *love* a gorgeous tile backsplash, it’s not required. Paint can be used to add visual interest with much more flexibility for changing tastes in the future.
So what do you think? Yay or nay on this kitchen concept?
