Blue & White Kitchen Remodel

Blue & White Kitchen Remodel

Opening this 1970’s kitchen to the formal dining room and family room modernized the floor plan and created a more natural flow better suited to this busy young family. Due to structural and budgetary constraints, not all the walls could be eliminated completely, but even slight modifications alleviated the choke points. By utilizing wide cased openings instead of removing the walls altogether, each space stands on its own as a separate room in keeping with the age and style of the home, while benefiting from improved traffic flow and conversation ability.

Spaces Included:



Stonehaven, Charlotte, NC

Project Scope:

Pull & Replace


Desperate for counter space and more elbow room between appliances, a slide-in range was selected in lieu of double wall ovens and a separate cooktop. Eliminating the double wall ovens created more counter space and allowed for the focal point of the kitchen: a brushed aluminum floating hood with brass strapping. Replacing the window closest to the family room with a shorter model enabled us to take the cabinetry and countertops all the way to the wall, adding valuable storage and secondary prep space. That, in addition to the long island, and workspace on either side of the range, helped to ensure that this kitchen remodel allows the whole family can work in this space together without being on top of each other.

The marble countertop and mosaic tile backsplash introduce a touch of elegance, while the brushed brass cabinet hardware and sputnik style pendants lend a bright, trendy vibe to this kitchen redesign.

“Everyone was so kind and fun and friendly, and they understood my vision. Our project manager was perfect—my family and I loved him! We came away with a gorgeous kitchen and some people I wouldn’t mind counting as friends!”

– Jessica Bates, Charlotte, NC 

Large cased openings are a less expensive alternative to removing a wall altogether. In the case of an older home that wasn’t meant to have an open plan, they also tend to look more appropriate as the spaces are still defined, while being more open.

Classic Color Palette

Navy blue and white is a classic color palette, regardless of where it’s used. Relegating the navy blue to the base cabinets and pairing them with white wall cabinets prevented this kitchen from becoming dark. Strategically placed recessed cans, undercabinet lighting, and decorative pendants provide lighting flexibility to suit the mood or task at hand.
