Get ready to pick your jaw off the floor. We just did a kitchen makeover (one of my favorite things), prioritizing function OVER form. The Fourth Street Kitchen Reveal could not have been a bigger transformation. From ditching all the wood paneling to completely re-configuring the layout…this kitchen was the definition of a gut job. Don’t let HGTV fool you —tons of planning, communication and time goes into a kitchen reno like this one. Don’t believe me? Be sure to read through the Fourth Street Kitchen Design Plan before scrolling down!

Kitchen Makeover: Chic Gray + White

The Kitchen Before….

There were some challenges to overcome: a nonfunctional layout, outdated materials, and a 100-year-old house that had been renovated many times over (not always in the best way).

We LOVE a good kitchen remodel. But prioritizing function doesn't mean we sacrifice design. You'll drool over the cool gray & white upgrades in this space.

The Kitchen After….

For the Fourth Street Kitchen, we rearranged the layout to give the family more usable counter space, and a small breakfast bar where the kids can sit. We also organized the appliances so there was plenty of room for two people to work. The range location gave us a great focal point for some gorgeous accent tile – BONUS!

The original finish plan was light + transitional. It consisted of crisp white subway tiles mixed with warm nickel hardware and lighting, plus large-scale slate floors.

  1. I have never been more in tune with TME than I am right now! I am currently in the middle of painting my cabinets and picking out a color for my walls and a backsplash. I’m pretty sure I just found what I’m looking for! This backsplash is amazing! As always, you guys have hit the nail on the head!
