Fishers Kitchen Remodel Before and After
In this Fishers, IN kitchen remodel we wanted to bring in the personality of the homeowners, fun and sophistication!
Kitchen remodeling is a complex endeavor. We can move appliances for functionality, esthetics or both. We consider how a family uses their kitchen daily and how they would like to use it in the future. What is the style and personality of the homeowners? The list goes on and on. For this family of four, they needed less clutter, more functional space and a place for the whole family to sit together.
DESIGN INSPIRATION FOR THIS KITCHEN REMODEL WAS SIMPLY THE FAMILY - sophisticatED FUN
Ya know those families you just want to adopt? Fun, comfortable, welcoming… this is how it feels to be around this Fishers family and we wanted to craft a kitchen that would perfectly reflect them. Navy is such a classic neutral color and yet has a bold daring side. We paired navy base cabinets with crisp clean whites and warmed it all back up using the darker wood tones on the floating shelves, flooring and even the bar stools. The combination of the warm and cool colors in this Fishers kitchen remodel keeps everything feeling balanced and welcoming.
UNUSABLE SPACE? GET RID OF IT!
This kichen originally had a desk next to the refrigerator. This seems like a good idea, a great place to store and organize bills and the kids school stuff. Let’s be honest, most of us just use it as a place for clutter to land. Yuck! We wanted to reimagine this space and drastically increase functionality. We brought in a set of double ovens, several drawers, a great prep space when loading and unloading the fridge, and a touch of style with the custom floating shelving.
Small changes make BIG impact especially for this kitchen peninsula.
One element of this kitchen design that had an enormous impact for the family was the peninsula. The original kitchen design only had room for three people, but this family of four wanted to be able to sit together. To accomplish this goal of togetherness we extended the peninsula cabintry down to be flush with the wall. Now the overhang for seating continued around the corner to allow for four bar stools. Not only is there room for the whole family, but this extension gave the entire kitchen the seamless, open feeling that they were craving. Finally, their young boys have a welcoming space to do crafts and feel involved in preparing family meals with their parents.

Have you ever pulled out a perfecly placed and organized drawer and giggled with delight? We have!
The big open base cabinets that most kitchens come with are not ideal to actually store your pots and pans, but they are ideal for creating epic surprise avalanches when you stack everything too high. (Been there, done that!) What we did here was remove the slide in range and installed a cooktop. Remember, we put a double oven on the wall and now where there was once an oven, we have 2 large drawer cabinets creating a convenient storage location for cookware.
We also moved the microwave to the end of the peninsula, instead of over the range. This gives it a more convenient location, next to the slide out trash can and allows the young boys to be able to use it independently.
CURATED CABINTRY BRINGS THE WHOLE KITCHEN TOGETHER
- Cabinetry: Shiloh cabinetry in Shaker, full overlay door style with 5-piece drawer fronts
- Cabinet Finish: upper cabinets in polar paint, base cabinets in naval paint and floating shelves in rustic alder, cola stain
- Cabinet Hardware: Hardware Resources – Elements in the Slade collection in brushed pewter finish
a FAVORITE UNNOTICED DETAIL
A unique detail that we like to incorporate in our design when able is amping up the pantry door. We replaced the pantry door with a frosted glass door, and put the door on a door switch. Now, when you open the door, the light automatically comes on. So cool, right? It’s the small things that make life easier. Quickly grabbing a box of cereal from the pantry has never been easier, when you don’t have to flip on a switch every time. The frosted glass still generates privacy from what is stored inside the pantry but adds some character.
remodel with confidence, transform functionality, change the way you live.
