Kitchen Updates for Calm Cool Vibes

Kitchen Updates for Calm Cool Vibes

Design Style


When does a brand new kitchen start to look dated? About 15 years after building this home, our homeowners were ready to make a major impact with some smart kitchen updates and add beautiful wood floors as far as your eye can see. The home was itching to be lightened, brightened, and relieved of the dreaded columns! Mission accomplished.

Custom kitchen updates Springfield IL

Without changing the floorplan, major kitchen updates were made to this Springfield, IL home.

For reference, the kitchen and dining before pictures:

Transitional Kitchen Remodel Before

Spend some time studying kitchen design and you will start picking out how design has changed over the years. The before pictures show the heavy, dark stained cabinets with upper wall cabinets at staggered heights. The floor featuring the 12 x 12 ceramic tiles, countertops and backsplash in tans and earth tones. And those columns in the dining room... enough said right!?!

Fast forward for the bright, white kitchen, marble backsplash tile, striking granite combination for countertops and all new island. Custom panels for a one of a kind pantry with built in cabinets. Warm it all up with beautiful wood floors and you have officially transitioned your dining and kitchen into a new era. Hence the name for this trend in kitchen design, Transitional.

More details about this custom re-work includes:

- new island cabinets and built-in cabinetry by Showplace Cabinetry, Edgewater doors in Cherry Wood with Midnight Stain.
