BEFORE & AFTER: Kitchen and Living Room Re-Design Photos

BEFORE & AFTER: Kitchen and Living Room Re-Design Photos

Sometimes, a decent living space can become an outstanding one. It just takes a great custom home design team and a smart re-design concept.

Today, we’re taking a look back at a simple-yet-stunning kitchen and living room re-design effort from Peter Salerno Inc. – the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the last 15 years.

The home in question had a ton of potential – it simply needed a better floor plan.

With an expert eye and a focus on an open floor plan, better use of ambient light and brighter color scheme – all while maintaining function and ample storage space – Peter Salerno Inc. set to work.

The resulting kitchen design and living room layout prove that strategy and planning matter every bit as much as other steps in your design process.

Let’s take a look at a pair of “before and after” living room and kitchen design photos and see how Peter Salerno Inc. took a good living space and made it a great one!

Recently, the official Peter Salerno Inc. blog shared with you some exclusive “before” photos of a new kitchen design project. The kitchen design was for Seth and Kay Mills of Tampa, Florida. Seth Mills is a former classmate of Peter Salerno’s from The Citadel, and the two remain close friends to this day.

Now, it’s time for us to share some exclusive photos of the finished product with you!

It was an added joy for Peter Salerno to design and deliver this beautiful kitchen design for such good friends. When the kitchen was delivered, installed and completed, Seth and Kay Mills had a party with family and friends to celebrate (just in time for the holidays!).

After the party, Peter received a wonderful note from Seth and Kay. Here is a small portion of that note:

The transformation is unbelievable, more that I could have imagined and I can imagine a lot! Our kitchen was the hit of the party last night…┬áI cannot thank you enough for your guidance and personal investment in helping us. Look forward to many years of enjoying the kitchen and our friendship with you and Tracy.
The kitchen’s center island is a combination of beauty and function and is adorned with two gorgeous statement lighting fixtures. Recessed lighting compliments the sleek backsplash behind the kitchen counter, and highlights the craftsmanship of the custom wood island base and custom cabinetry.
And let’s not forget the streamlined, state-of-the-art Miele appliances, including the revolutionary Miele coffee system!
