SwatchPop! Beach House: Kitchen Remodel

If you're a regular follower, you've probably heard about SwatchPop co-founder, Kristen's FL rental property that FLOODED earlier this year when a pipe burst in the wall. With a house full of renovations to tackle, the kitchen remodel was the biggest task of them all.

So, where does one start on such a big remodel? Easy. Kristen started an online project with one of SwatchPop’s interior designers to help make the design process go smoother and quicker. Renovations are challenging enough, but managing renovations from a distance...Kristen would take all the help she could get.

Being a rental property, the design needed to be affordable, yet make a big statement. The remodel needed to complement the previous coastal decor, which used various shades of blue and incorporated driftwood textures throughout. The ultimate goal was to keep the same beach house concept as before but BETTER.

Kitchen Cabinet Options
Kitchen Materials

Her SwatchPop designer created 3 different options for her kitchen remodel, take a look at each one:

OPTION 1

White cabinets were suggested to keep the small kitchen light and bright. Adding an affordable white countertop paired with a statement backsplash would fit the budget while still making a big statement. This is a fabulous option for this open concept floor plan since The Cement Tile Shop backsplash would be seen throughout the entire space.

OPTION 2

Using a white arabesque backsplash would create contrast with the gray cabinets. The gray cabinets would really showcase a white apron front sink and allow the stainless steel appliances to flow and blend in with the cabinets. A laminate Ikea countertop was the suggested cost effective choice for this option.

OPTION 3

The statement here would be the big pop of color in the backsplash using a timeless subway tile but in a fun, coastal color that fits in with the color scheme of the house. A formica laminate countertop was suggested for an affordable yet durable and also scratch and stain resistant option.

Kitchen Option 3

After all these options were sent to Kristen, she ended up choosing OPTION 1. The tile backsplash from The Cement Tile Shop was the detail she fell in love with! These tiles were full of pattern to create a focal point in the kitchen but neutral in color to flow with the coastal color scheme throughout the home. The Cement Tile Shop had so many great tile options to choose from but this one was perfect for the space.

Kitchen Tiles

We are in love with the final results!
