Modern Kitchen Makeover In Upper Arlington

Let In The Light To Upscale A Kitchen

Many old kitchens look cramped and dreary, the last things you want to feel starting or ending your day. This house in Upper Arlington wasn’t looking for a simple upgrade. Their kitchen needed to be torn down to the roots and brought back up as a modern, inviting space to gather.

How We Helped

Client's Needs:

The space centered on depressing dark wood cabinets that sucked out the light. Thin laminate countertops didn’t uplift the kitchen either. In a room that is used so often in a home,  the colors and mood were desperately needing a makeover.

Our Simple Solution

Our goal was simple: brighten and modernize this kitchen! We replaced the cabinets with modern doors and a clean white finish. Granite countertops and a tile backsplash upscaled the kitchen’s look, but the biggest addition was a unique island remodel. We expanded the island to fit bar stools and drawers, turning a thruway into a warmer environment you’d want to stay in.

Brightening up the kitchen is essential for creating a welcoming and functional space. A kitchen island with seating provides a casual dining area that ​​can make the kitchen a more central and social space in the home.


Light colors, especially a high contrast of black and white, can create an illusion of a larger and more open space. This is particularly useful in smaller kitchens, where making the area feel more spacious can be a significant improvement.
