A before-and-after look of a stunning kitchen remodel. (Submitted photos)

Do you ever look at your kitchen wishing you could update but knowing you can’t justify the cost of a full-scale remodel? Your cabinets are still in good condition. The placement of appliances functions well, but the kitchen is a little dark, the countertops are tired and the lip of your drop-in sink catches lots of crumbs.

The kitchen pictured here shows how we addressed those same concerns. Step 1 of our solution was to keep the cabinets but give them a new fresh look. We partnered with the professional artists at Shines Studios to properly prepare the cabinets and apply a beautiful new painted finish that completely changes the character of the space. To complement the new cabinet color, we commissioned Jeff Ware Concrete to install custom-colored concrete countertops. We found the perfect sink and faucet combination through Ferguson, and Jack Laurie provided the incredible glass and stone backsplash tile.
