Oyster Garden Kitchen and Bar Refacing keeps Existing Layout but Replaces Doors and Drawers with Fir
This Oyster Garden Home is a waterfront property with walk on beach access and the homeowners had an extensive collection of salmon oriented original art so creating a west coast aesthetic seemed only natural.
A backdoor beside the fridge, a closet behind the bifold pantry and a bathroom next to both left no room to expand the kitchen without considerable expense so we opted to leave the layout exactly as it was and reface it with fir, extending the refacing into the bar area.
The original kitchen had 80s style doors and drawers with a strange oak light fixture above the peninsula. The light fixture was removed and replaced with two flat black pendants with copper interiors.
To stay with a beach west coast aesthetic we suggested weathered wood look tiles for the backsplash. They came in 6”x36” lengths so we cut them in half and installed them horizontally.
The white switches and switch plates where replaced with black switches/outlets and stainless steel covers.
Custom bifold doors where built in our shop to match the bookmatched horizontally installed edge grain fir cabinetry.
In the living room a new built up fir mantle was installed over the fireplace and fir edging was wrapped around the raised hearth.
One of my Evelyn M mixed media on canvas paintings is now part of their collection of original salmon art.
The bar area behind the fireplace and inbetween the kitchen and dining areas received a new wine fridge and it was instantly a big hit!
