Creating this white schoolhouse kitchen in Corvallis was a designer’s dream. Prior to the kitchen remodel, this home had maple, raised panel cabinets with brown tile countertops, no backsplash, and a small butcher block-topped island. A peninsula with a raised bar top and the presence of a large central post created a visual separation. These features closed off the kitchen from the dining and living areas and disrupted the flow of the spaces.
The kitchen before.
The homeowners had a clear concept of how they wanted to live and move in their kitchen and living areas, and the disruptive post was NOT in their vision. We removed the post, using large beams hidden in the ceiling to carry the load, and removed the peninsula.

This beautiful renovation was completed by painting all the existing cabinets white, adding the second-tier upper cabinets for storage and room for display, and installing new cabinet hardware.
We created a large island with integral seating, and added pendant lighting, Caesarstone Organic White countertops, and a white subway tile backsplash. Hand scraped maple floors throughout the first level completed the renovation.
The homeowners have a real sense of style and put their own signature on the kitchen with inspired selections. Thoughtful changes combined with timeless design resulted in a bright and open kitchen for the family and guests to enjoy!
