Photo Review: CaseIndy Kitchen Remodels of 2012

As the year comes to a close, we are taking a look back at many of the kitchen remodels we were fortunate to build in 2012. From just replacing countertops and lighting, to completely revamping the functionality and flow, all of our projects have brought something new to our clients.

The cosmetic upgrades transformed this kitchen from dated to like-new. Painting existing cabinetry, installing new flooring, countertops and tile backsplash, as well as bringing in new appliances gave the homeowners the look they desired.

Knocking down walls to open up a cramped kitchen was just one design element of this 2012 remodeling project. Paying homage to the homeowners’ love of mid-century style was the main focus. The painted glass backsplash is just one of the highlights of this fabulous space.

These homeowners opted to keep their original cabinets and layout, which worked well for their family.  Updating their countertops and adding tile backsplashes and undercabinet lighting was just what they wanted for their kitchen.

Painting and adding trim to original cabinetry was a cost-effective option to freshen up this light-filled kitchen. Taking it a step further with new countertops and appliances finished off the space.

We transformed this small galley kitchen lacking in counter space into an open, light-filled entertaining destination. Mixing black and white is a look that has worked for Indianapolis area homeowners for a few years now.

Reconfiguring a floor plan to reflect how your family uses your space can make your home more functional. These homeowners had us move the dining room so they could expand their kitchen. According to the homeowners, “We are very happy we made the decision to go with the new configuration. The new design opened up the space, so now we have room to maneuver around, cook and entertain.”

Not enough storage or serving surfaces for entertaining? Installing cabinetry with the look of furniture solved that issue for these clients. In this kitchen, the original cabinets were painted to refresh the space. These new cabinets were chosen to compliment the style of the rest of the kitchen, and painted to match.

Many homeowners are taking advantage of the new shapes and textures available in tile these days. In this kitchen, the backsplash tile does not overpower the light-colored countertop while providing visual interest and depth to the flat surface.

Creative design ended up being the key to solving space issues in this narrow kitchen. According to the homeowner, “The old peninsula tended to trap people in the narrow kitchen when we were entertaining.” We kept the peninsula, but with a twist, opening up the space and greatly improving flow. Spectacular finishes topped off the remodel.

White cabinetry continued to be popular in 2012. In this kitchen, our design brought in a cottage look, with combining cabinet styles and adding bead board to the island. Bringing in different countertops for the perimeter and the island was a popular design choice this year as well.

Mixing the two very different styles of these homeowners was a fun challenge for our designers. Bringing modern elements into a traditional design made for a stunning outcome. These light fixtures many win the Funkiest of the Year award!

We are honored to have been a part of these kitchen transformations this year. Do you have a favorite? We’d love to hear which space sparks your creativity.
