Project: Alton Village Residence
Date: Winter 2015
Work: Kitchen Island, Living Room Fireplace and Surround, Master Ensuite
Notes: This project was completed with KMSalter Design. With a three year old house, the owners were ready to make some upgrades to original builder quality spaces in their home.
The new gigantic kitchen island tripled their available work and storage space as well as changed a bland kitchen into an entertainment zone. The dark painted cabinets provided a nice contrast to the minimalist blacks and greys already present in the kitchen.
The fireplace surround was a challenge due to its size and scope. We needed to build a scaffold to install the cabinets and build the paneling above the fireplace, but it was worth all the work because their living room now has an impressive statement that we've come to call the 'megawall'. The contemporary fireplace blends old and new with sharp minimalist lines, and a classic marble surround, and the cabinets either side house all the electronics of a young family.
