Kitchen Remodel: Maywood
Completed December 2012.
The remodel for this charming home on Maywood Ave in Ann Arbor required a make over for the kitchen and powder room to go from cute to cool.
In this project, we will be gutting the existing kitchen,
and replacing it with a new, modern-style.
We will be removing this wall between the kitchen and
the dining room, opening up the two spaces.
This powder room will also be completely re-done.
This plan shows the new kitchen and bathroom layout.

The tile floor is going in. The red spaces keep the tile apart
as they are set, leaving room for grout to be added.
After the tile was finished, the cork
floor in the kitchen was installed.

This round orb is actually a ventilation hood for over the cooktop.
It came in a standard white, but we had it custom painted this
bright orange to better fit into the color palette of the finished kitchen.
