Quartz Kitchen Counter LOVE! Before & After Kitchen Remodel

Hi there!
I thought I'd share a "before and after" of a kitchen renovation that I just completed for a client in San Francisco.
It's a petite condo in the Marina District that has a beautiful view of the Bay Bridge and of Alcatraz.

Here is the "BEFORE" pic:

This photo was taken with my iphone right before demo, so of course it's not the greatest.

Oak cabinets, parquet wood floor (partially demo-ed here in this pic), white tile, and a fridge that stuck out about 6 inches past the counter, made this small kitchen look even smaller.

And now for the "AFTER":

The overhead hanging cabinets were removed on one side, which made a huge difference in light and airiness in the space.

The countertop is a beautiful quartz called Quartz Concerto, and the counter is 2 inches thick instead of the usual 1 1/2 inches, which makes for a fresh and contemporary look.

The new refrigerator is now counter depth and the 2x8 subway tile add a simple and light backsplash.  We used shaker style doors with oversized hardware for visual impact.

We chose Quartz for this project because of it's durability and because it does not require sealing, re-polishing or reconditioning.

I just love the way this kitchen turned out!
