Atlanta Kitchen Gets Luxury Old World Makeover
One of the showstoppers on the 2011 Junior League of Atlanta Tour of Kitchens was a dramatic before-and-after project by Design Galleria Kitchen & Bath Studio. A dated space with white tile floors, striped wallpaper, and canned lighting was transformed into a luxurious Old World-style kitchen with natural stone countertops, wide-plank hardwood floors, brick facing, and high-end appliances.
The renovation included a complete change of the original kitchen floor plan, as explained on the Design Galleria blog. The new layout makes the kitchen seem larger and provides added cooking and entertaining space, while implementing practical work areas devoted to food preparation and cleanup.
The tour of kitchens is the largest fundraiser for the Junior League of Atlanta, benefiting dozens of community organizations dedicated to serving women and children, and has also become one of the most anticipated local design events. Next year’s tour of kitchens is slated for March 24-25.
