Updating during a kitchen remodel

Life changes often prompt a desire for physical changes in our living spaces. This sentiment resonated deeply with our recent clients, a couple whose children had grown and left the nest. As the original owners of their home, built in 1997, they found themselves wanting a transformation within their kitchen. Seeking to modernize and revitalize their living environment, they turned to Ken Spears Construction to breathe new life into the heart of their home


The focal point of their vision for change centered around their kitchen, which remained unchanged since the home’s construction. The original layout felt compartmentalized, with walls dividing the kitchen from the adjoining living room and dining areas. Their pantry was inadequate, forcing them to utilize basement storage for kitchen items. Moreover, their dining room had become obsolete, no longer serving its intended purpose.

Kitchen Remodel – Challenges for the Homeowner

Their aspirations for a revamped home included the creation of an open floor plan conducive to entertaining loved ones. A key request was the incorporation of a sizable, inviting island for both functional and social purposes. Additionally, they sought enhanced pantry storage solutions within the kitchen space.

How We Helped Them Reach Their Objectives

To fulfill our clients’ desires, our team planned a comprehensive kitchen renovation. The first step involved the removal of the existing wall separating the living room, dining room, and kitchen, thereby opening up the space to foster seamless interaction. Leveraging the former dining room area, we expanded the kitchen footprint to accommodate a spacious island, ideal for gathering and culinary endeavors. 

Addressing the storage challenge, we reimagined the pantry, transforming it into a generously sized walk-in storage haven. Our meticulous attention to detail extended to the installation of premium materials, including quartz countertops, elegant cabinet pulls, and a striking tile backsplash. The final touch came with a tasteful application of Silver Fox paint, harmonizing the space with a sophisticated ambiance.

Design Elements Used

The design palette for this project was carefully curated. Beginning with the cabinetry, we opted for exquisite maple cabinets adorned with a White Dove painted finish. These cabinets not only exude sophistication but also provide ample storage space, seamlessly blending style with practicality.

Complementing the cabinetry, the countertops were crafted from luxurious Cambria quartz in the captivating Charlestown hue. This choice not only adds a touch of opulence to the kitchen but also ensures durability and ease of maintenance, making it an ideal surface for culinary adventures and gatherings alike. To add a hint of vintage charm, transitional metal cabinet pulls were selected in an antique nickel finish. These hardware pieces serve as both functional elements and stylish accents, tying together the overall aesthetic of the kitchen space.

In the heart of the kitchen, the focal point is the Moen single bowl stainless steel sink, paired with the Moen Align chrome kitchen faucet. This combination seamlessly combines form and function, offering both practicality and visual appeal for everyday use. Completing the ensemble, the Moen chrome soap dispenser adds refinement to the sink area, enhancing both convenience and aesthetics. Meanwhile, the Queen beige tumbled 2” hex backsplash tile adds texture and visual interest to the space, infusing warmth and character into the kitchen design.

Finally, tying the entire color scheme together is the wall paint color, Benjamin Moore 2108-50 Silver Fox. This versatile shade serves as the perfect backdrop, allowing the other design elements to shine while imparting a sense of tranquility and sophistication to the space.
