“The most important aspect for remodeling your home is to have the look and feel that works best for you.” – Kathi Fleck, Renovate, Remodel… Relax!

Color has a huge effect on the atmosphere of a space. Thus, it is no surprise that so many homeowners are embracing bold accent pieces in their spaces. It used to be that the majority of clients opted-in for traditional palettes of whites, browns and yellows (and that was pushing it). Now, I see homeowners willing and even excited to push the envelope when it comes to the color palette for their new space. One of the biggest ways color is being incorporated into space is through accent pieces, particularly, cabinetry.

Beadboard detailing gives it a classic country touch, while feet provide that “furniture feel” often found in farmhouses (which is the look the homeowners wanted to achieve). A dark gray stain with a hazy glaze on both pieces helps ground the cabinets to the darker gray floor. Check out more photos from this project here.

The end result is a warm space. It’s a small room, but the pop of gray really makes it feel sleek and inviting (which is what the homeowners wanted).

It ties the space (located before the sunroom to the right) to the kitchen (which is across). This is a great way to make a small space appear larger and cohesive with adjoining rooms.
