An Occoquan Kitchen Transformed… Before, During, & After

March 01, 2018

No one with a beautiful, functional Kitchen calls us to remodel their space. The “Before” pics we take at the beginning of every Kitchen remodeling project always remind us WHY we were called on and how much the space was transformed – from the initial designs to the last drawer pull installed. This Occoquan VA project was no exception. The older, split level home sits in the gorgeous town of Occoquan Virginia - near the water and the beautiful Old Town area of shops and restaurants. The Home Owner came to us with a very closed in first floor plan, an extremely outdated Kitchen, and big hopes for opening up the flow of his new home to create the ideal floorplan for entertaining and every day enjoyment.

Cramped. Outdated. Unusable. And I know what you’re thinking…. “Hey! My parents had that linoleum floor!”



The design phase is when we explore the many layout options with the Home Owner, finally settling on the one they LOVE. For this project, we removed the two walls dividing the Kitchen from the Dining Room and Living Room, and incorporated an island to tie the areas together. Wood flooring to match the existing was installed in the new Kitchen area, and the entire first floor wood floors were sanded down and refinished to match for a consistent look.

The transformation is stunning. The bright white cabinets shine in the natural sunlight, and the dramatic glass backsplash is the perfect accent for this clean, open plan. The large island boasts two very large drawer bases for ample storage for pots and pans, dinnerware, and other Kitchen implements – as well as providing additional seating for entertaining needs. Light paint colors and transitional lighting fixtures give this beautiful home the crisp and contemporary kick it needed to welcome everyone who comes through the front door.
