Great Spaces!
Good Morning Monica, When I was called to come take a look at this 7200 sq. ft., mid 1980's Georgian Colonial I was wondering about it's condition as I was driving...what would I find when I got there??? When I pulled up I saw a stately home with a manicured lawn in reasonably good condition, when I came through the front door I saw a tired old lady. Many homes like this have never been updated at all. They still have all original kitchens and baths and are waiting for someone to come along and breathe new life into them. As you can see, someone did a a little makeover on the original cabinets and put some granite and new hardware on this original kitchen but It wasn't at all what my new clients had in mind! They are young and hip and wanted their new home to reflect their personal style so re-doing this home was prompted by new owners with present day style and a desire to live in an environment that reflected who they are. I wanted it to reflect their style but be mindful of it's Georgian architecture. We went to work on every inch of this home and updated it...this tired old lady has become the belle of the ball! The work that we did will carry this home into the future with much added value and timeless appeal that would not have been possible without this update. The most important thing though, is that now my clients live in a home that feels right for who they are. That's what we do at Great Spaces! Thank You for looking at my work, best of luck with your project!

Hi There! I'm sorry, I have no idea! This is a before picture, these cabinets are gone now. If I had to guess about the color I would say it's Navaho White. Every paint company has one, they vary slightly but are all that creamy color so check it out! Hope that helps you and good luck with your project! Jo

Hi, love before &after. Were the cabinets cream &you painted them white or replaced the cabinets completely. And island is it new also? I am remodeling my kitchen&trying to get some ideas. Initially liked cream bisque cabinets with antique glaze&the island is also cream with Millenium cream granite.. But now seeing pictures of your after it appears cabinets are white. This is definitely more appealing plus the change in the island. I am concerned now about the color. I need an island that has seating also. thanks for your time &help with the questions. Great job.

Like the double oven. Also like the microwave raised above the counter and included in the cabinets. Is a conventional oven needed if we have a double oven?? If the double oven does not replace the conventional oven, we need one and have space for it.

This is another picture of the same kitchen from before. I don't like it as much here. The cabinets aren't actually white, and I don't think it looks good with the white door/molding.
