Le Mans Kitchen Before + After

Remodels are so fun to share because the before and after is so dramatic. This kitchen is no exception. It is good that our ability to see past things runs in the family because this house was pretty dated when my parents decided to place an offer. The previous owner loved anything Greek and she stopped at nothing. Columns, painted murals on the walls and floors…not to mention the carpet and needless walls everywhere. The house had a ton of potential and great bones, but needed a keen eye to see how it could be transformed.

Here are some of the before pictures of the kitchen and dining room, which got combined into one large room.

 We took down several walls making it more open concept, made the windows larger to allow more natural light in and obviously updated the floors and cabinetry. Here are some photos during construction.

 I have a lot of favorites in this kitchen, but I think the winner is the honed leathered quartzite countertop. It is simply stunning against the white dove cabinets.

I also love that we were able to source so many items for their kitchen/dining straight from MegMade, including the rug, the dining table, the light fixtures, hardware and wallpaper!

If you love the look, you can shop it here!

        Thank you, I am in Chicago… I thought it might be a local company. Trying to find a good cabinet company for a new kitchen.

    HI… lovely! what is the floor? Was the former oak or teak parquet? Hard to tell. .. we have solid teak parquet that won’t be leaving anytime soon…..it is beautiful since we refinished and had stripped of the stain…sealed it natural . I do like the new floor and looking for something like that for upstairs but in a warmer color that will coordinate better with the teak that is downstairs…

    I love the white cabinets with these counters! What color are the counters here and were they purchased from?
