Just bought house with this kitchen. We have a nice open concept with the kitchen opening to breakfast area and hearth room.
The cabinets are custom maple and we don't want to remove them but do want to make some changes. We like the maple, but there is an a lot of it, in the kitchen, at desk and cabinet area, and surrounding fireplace in hearth room. The floors are a similar color.
We wanted to add some contrast. Ideas so far are redo island in espresso and granite countertops (bellini).
Other changes we are considering are adding some expresso elsewhere to connect to the island...on the crown molding, hood, desk area??? Will replace sinks on counter and in island and add pendant lighting.
Those flag window treatments will leave with the sellers. Outside those windows is a lovely view of a lake and golf course so I want to do something else that will highlight the view, not the window treatments.
Would love ideas on kitchen or the rest of the area.
