This week’s makeover project will make any homeowner lusting after a new kitchen green with envy. While this Roswell home’s cabinets and appliances weren’t exactly in desperate, down-and-out condition, the owners wanted a total renovation to achieve a more open, spacious floorplan without sacrificing their valued—and much-needed—storage space.

Here are a few shots of the kitchen before the makeover:

To improve circulation in the space, the building teams at American Classic Designs and Eastlight Studio removed the counter, along with a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf, and used the space to create a striking island.

One aspect of the kitchen that was maintained was a beautifully aged copper countertop, which was carefully removed and used on the island, adding tremendous character to the kitchen.

To keep the balance toward the contemporary side, the clean paint finish of the cabinets was contrasted with dark, simple hardware.

The flooring, which was previously multilayered and had to be removed with great effort, was replaced with wide, tongue-and-groove hickory.

The owners now enjoy a central hub around which they can gather, in addition to a more free-flowing floorplan.
