If you're looking for neutral kitchen design inspiration, you're going to love our most recent kitchen remodel from Tampa, Fl ..

As you can see in the before photo above, this kitchen was cramped, gloomy, outdated and had a poor layout.  Our client came to us looking for solutions to make this room more functional and stylish for their family.

A must have for this kitchen was a bigger, more functional island. 

We designed the multi-functional kitchen island for the kids to make lunches and snacks;  additionally, we increased the island's size to include a sink and accessories so it could accommodate family gatherings better;  finally, we added plenty of seating to serve as the family's homework and work station.

One of the main requests from our client was to incorporate lots of light!  

To brighten up the space, our designer suggested adding glass doors to the top row of cabinets with dimmable lights to be used as needed, we installed under cabinet lights, recessed cans, as well as pendant lighting over the kitchen island.

The result?  A much brighter room with beautiful layers of light!

Desiging a beautiful, statement hood wall was very important, so we worked closely with the client to finalize the design of the hood as well as the quartz backsplash that goes all the way up to the ceiling.  

It was worth the extra effort as this hood wall is absolutely stunning!  We are loving the subtle pop of metallic and pattern against that quartz backsplash.

Our clients are coffee drinkers, so including a coffee bar in their kitchen remodel was a must!

The final result is a built in coffee bar with pocket doors and a pull out, so it can be hidden away after the caffeine cravings are satisfied. 


A small nook (shown above on left) that was a waste of valuable space was transformed into a beautiful wet bar for entertaining.

The entryway was also updated in the same wood as the wet bar and island to add some extra storage to hide the inevitable clutter you get when you have kids.   


New wood flooring compliments the cabinetry and creates a sense of flow throughout the home. 

Needless to say, our clients were thrilled with their brand new kitchen remodel, wet bar, entryway and new flooring.
