 Kitchen Before and After Makeovers

1ST PLACE

Hall Design Build

(678) 239-4428 Halldesignbuild.com • Photos courtesy of Nelson Salivia with FotoGrafix Arts

This kitchen is part of a whole-house renovation project undertaken by Hall Design Build and interior designer Rebekah Simpson that took four months to complete. The homeowners requested a large, open kitchen with functional, free-flowing workspaces and a clean, timeless appeal. To accomplish this, the existing support columns and knee wall were removed and replaced with an engineered beam. The team made way for a walk-in pantry and desk area by reducing the size of the gas chase and oversized foyer closet. Finishing out the kitchen are custom shaker-style cabinet doors and drawers by Kitchen and Bath Design Group, appliances and plumbing fixtures by Ferguson, honed Absolute Black granite countertops by Stonecrafters and a backsplash made with custom tiles by Daltile.

Terri Ervin, of Decorating Den Interiors, and 
CSI Kitchen & Bath Studio turned this 20-year-old kitchen into a more workable and contemporary space, as requested by the homeowner. The existing island cooktop was moved to a perimeter cabinet, and a new countertop with a larger overhang was added so the island could be used for dining and meal preparation. Ervin selected a chocolate brown for the wall paint and added sleek, contemporary furniture as well as two new light fixtures to complete the kitchen makeover.

3RD PLACE

Home Creations, LLC

(404) 456-8132 • www.myhomecreations.com  • Photos courtesy of Michael McKelvey Photography

The Home Creations team took a 1980s wallpapered, country-themed kitchen in an Atlanta home and turned it into a sleek, modern cooking and living area. The homeowners wanted a crisper and cleaner look complete with a high-top granite table. To kick off the two-month project, the kitchen was completely gutted and materials were recycled. New energy-efficient doors and windows were installed, and new appliances were ordered. A custom pantry was created with swing-out doors for double food storage. Steel posts surrounded by cabinet boxes matched with the rest of the kitchen cabinets were created to support the granite table.

Honorable Mention

Though the homeowners initially wanted to renovate this kitchen so they could sell their house, the plan developed by Handcrafted Homes, Inc., convinced them to stay. While cabinet doors, countertops and appliances were all replaced, the company also addressed the layout of the kitchen, suggesting the sink be moved from a peninsula separated from the rest of the kitchen by a doorway to an island in the center of the kitchen. Other additions, such as a built-in dog feeding station, helped make the kitchen more functional and better suited to the homeowners’ lifestyle.

Honorable Mention

 Studio M Interiors

(404) 805-0670 • www.studiominteriors.net  • Photos courtesy of Studio M Interiors

For this Ansley Park kitchen renovation, the homeowners wanted both an aesthetic and functional update while keeping the same footprint of the room. The design team visually enlarged the small kitchen by bringing in bright-white cabinets from Timberland Cabinets, quartz countertops from Atlanta Marble, a backsplash made with uniquely colored natural stone mosaic tile by Daltile, a cabinet-style pantry and extra-large windows to maximize the view of the garden. Other unique features include a recessed iPad docking station on the wall and an electronic self-closing trash cabinet. The general contractor was M.B. Alexander, Inc., and construction took approximately eight weeks.

New Mood Design transformed a 300-square-foot interior space on two levels into a powder room for guests and a master bathroom suite off the master bedroom. After the space in this Vinings home was gutted, new connections between existing rooms were added with a revised flow for new functions. New Mood Design created a bright, expansive space with a minimal, light-colored palette featuring floor-to-ceiling glossy white wall tile. African mahogany millwork, a soft walnut floating vanity cabinet and gray-brown floor tiles add warmth and richness. Contractors included A Custom View, LLC, and Artisan Custom Closets.

 3RD PLACE

Chic Abode Interiors

(407) 923-3953 • www.chicabodeinteriors.com  • Photos courtesy of Claire Bell

In renovating this master bathroom, the homeowner desired to open up the space and eliminate excessive partitioning while creating a sleek, modern, updated look. A key design decision was the oversized light-gray textural subway tile from Zumpano Tile, repeated throughout for a contemporary look that still retains warmth and a light and airy appeal. Claire Bell, of Chic Abode Interiors, combined this pick with the homeowner’s plumbing selections and a custom-designed espresso-finished vanity built by Gary Luke, of The Town Carpenter. The result raises the perceived ceiling height, increases light and creates a lighter visual weight throughout.
