Blueprint for Improvement: Carmel cosmetic kitchen upgrade


Built in 1999, this home is in Carmel’s Emerald Estates neighborhood. The owners wanted to update the kitchen without replacing the cabinets.

  • The existing cabinets were in excellent shape, so they were freshened up with new paint. The countertop was replaced with quartz.
  • One new base cabinet was added to the island to provide additional storage. The doors feature wire mesh for visibility and added style.
  • Wine racking was installed in the niche above the oven for more functionality.
  • The flooring is luxury vinyl plank in a beautiful, weathered finish.
