When Mary and Jon Kuntz became empty nesters, they decided it was time to renovate their 16-year-old kitchen to create their dream space. While the light wood and beige countertops were popular when they purchased the newly built home in 2004, they were tired of the design that just didn’t match the rest of their home’s elevated coastal aesthetic. Additionally, the kitchen didn’t have adequate storage, so they were keeping appliances in the basement, walking up and down the steps any time they needed to use the blender! The proportionally small kitchen included an oddly shaped island that cut off much of the space without adding functional cabinetry beneath.
The Kuntz’s vision for their new space included a bright white and blue color scheme, unique accents, and plenty of storage. The design team at Brothers helped them accomplish this with a custom light blue color on the hood and island, hand-laid beadboard accents, and custom Tedd Wood cabinetry. One thing they did want to keep from the old kitchen was the beautiful hardwood flooring. Brothers’ master tradesmen were able to take the hidden hardwood from under the island to fill in the gaps left from removing the dividing half wall. From the unique pendant lights to the bright quartz countertops and flawless hardwood floor, the final kitchen creates a stunning coastal effect.
