Our homeowners built their impressive five bedroom, five and a half bathroom Overland Park, Kansas home in 2005. Parts of the home, including the kitchen, no longer reflected their style. With two of their three children already off at college and the third not far behind, now was the time to create a functional, streamlined modern kitchen to reflect their evolving interior style.
You know when someone gives their opinion and it is a slightly drawn out, “Interesting” and you get the distinct vibe they don’t actually care for what it is you’re showing them? The before of the dining room in this Overland Park townhouse may elicit a similar reaction.
A kitchen update was long overdue for these homeowners. For years they’d put the focus on raising their children but they now find themselves empty nesters and the time has come to put some of that focus on their home. Their dark and cramped kitchen was on the top of their list.
We often share renovated kitchens in older homes but this week we’re sharing one that took place in a newer home. It’s a misconception we all have if it’s new it's better but that’s not always true. This home was built in 2006 and while the majority of the home fit the homeowner’s needs, the kitchen fell short.
This is week 2 of the Traditional Meets Modern Home Renovation Series. Just in case you missed it, here’s Week 1. This week we’re going to take a closer look at the kitchen renovation. The kitchen hadn’t had any updates since the house was built but was in great shape.
