About one year ago, Evelyn from Oakville, Ontario came to Paint It Like New! Inc. to have her maple kitchen sprayed a soft white. Evelyn took this opportunity to make some changes that would turn her “simple” makeover into a truly custom project! Her small kitchen with a peninsula at one end seemed closed off to the eating area and adjacent family room. Evelyn took the peninsula and flipped it onto the back wall of the eating area. She now had one long continuous wall of cabinets running from the kitchen into the eating area. Evelyn then added a small “wet bar” sink and open shelving (in the new section) to make this a truly open concept kitchen,eating area and family room, great for entertaining. Evelyn had already decided to invest in new counters so there was no additional costs for this except it was one long run of counter instead of an “L.” One year later, Evelyn sold her home for top dollar in her area. The “new” and “updated” kitchen was truly the inspiration for the quick sale.
This project shows that creativity and imaginative thinking can definitely have a bigger impact than simply, spending, a lot of money, on your home!
