How to Update Your Kitchen without Replacing the Cabinets

Not every client wants to tear out their kitchen & start over, especially when they have just gone through the stress of selling the old house, packing & moving.

This West Vancouver condo owner was just that client. He wasn’t happy with the existing kitchen, but wanted to keep the existing cabinets. Although this kitchen was built in the 80’s, the cabinets were in impeccable condition.

What he asked Suze Interiors to assist with is to build up the counter to make a breakfast bar, so he could have stools & increase his seating capacity, replace the laminate counter-tops with granite, replace the simple white backsplash with a gorgeous one that has different tones & textures, which adds interest. We updated the appliances (although he liked the existing hood fan, so we left it), installed beautiful pendant light fixtures over the bar, replaced the 1″ metal blinds with 2″ faux wood ones. (the condo faces south & the sun warps wood blinds). We also added some contemporary pulls to the doors, a new under mount sink & under cabinet lighting. The result is a much warmer & updated kitchen that the homeowner loves & he didn’t have to break the bank to do it.
