White oak is owning the industry right now and this historic home in the Westboro Neighborhood of Topeka, KS is a fantastic example of a balanced mixture of multiple tones and textures using white & light wood cabinets.
What I loved most about this project is that we saved the homeowner a TON of reno time and money. The old kitchen had an angled island that split the room in half and made things feel cramped in what was actually a large space. When they reached out to us they had plans underway to blow out the back wall of the house and add a new addition to give them the space they wanted for their large family. However, we were able to convince them that with the right layout, they already had the space they needed and could avoid the huge expense of an addition. The end result is a jaw dropping kitchen with ample walkways that flow wonderfully from kitchen, dining and into the family room. You won’t believe the before photos…keep scrolling!

Like my good friend Chip Gaines says; ) I get totally GEEKED OUT for big transformations and this 2 phase project definitely delivered on that. About a year ago, this family came to us after purchasing their tudor-style lake home. The bones were great but the interior was too dark and dated for a family who has great taste for design and color.
