When we met this client she had just purchased an amazing fixer upper in the heart of Ogden. The yard had been completely landscaped but the interior needed a lot of love. She had a long list of things she was wanting and a very strict budget that she hoped everything could be done within.
She had a very unique style - Mid century modern meets eclectic! The ceiling in the home was an exposed wood ceiling. The home owner really wanted to keep this and we couldn't blame her. But choosing a cabinet color became a challenge! The whole home was covered in paneling that she didn't necessarily want to remove. She decided she would want to paint the paneling white so it wouldn't compete. There was still one factor that would come into play when trying to decide on cabinet color... a large built in that overlooked the dining room. We definitely didn't want to close it off but didn't like the idea of painting it white. So we ultimately decided to match the new cabinet color to this built in.
Once the paneling was painted and the old kitchen demo'd it really brightened up the space. We removed a wall between the kitchen and living room in order to open up the kitchen a little more. It was almost a struggle to take after pictures because of all the natural light flooding in!
We didn't want to do an LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) floor because we didn't want to introduce anymore wood tones. But we still liked the idea of doing a vinyl floor. We decided to choose a stone look LVT (Luxury vinyl tile) that would have a more mid century modern feel.
The new kitchen perfectly captured the clients unique style. CF Olsen Designs (Located in Ogden) did an extraordinary job on the kitchen cabinets which perfectly matched the existing built in! We did a quartz countertop and all new appliances. We moved the range into a small prep island and added a few fun feature items! We did some wrap around floating shelves on a small bumped out wall that couldn't be moved. And moved the microwave to the end of the island hidden behind faux drawer fronts. We also did a small nook under the island for cat food.
The laundry room was originally in the kitchen but we relocated it to the coat closet in the dining room. We eliminated the closet completely and put a stack-able unit inside. This allowed us to move the fridge and do a peninsula with seating.
When everything was said and done- we were able to complete the project close to the original budget! We ended up having a couple change orders throughout the project but nothing too major. The client was happy and it matched the eclectic feel of the home and her personality!
