The homeowner wanted to brighten the space and open it up. She wanted to add a pantry wall and eliminate the icicle ceilings. We added can lighting throughout, installed beaded board on the ceiling on the main level of the home, tore out the stepped up bar and created an "island". We did not replace the cabinets! We simply added boxes above the existing cabinets and installed new shaker style doors. We trimmed the "island" for a custom cabinet look.
