Show N’ Tell – Waterside Reno

The majority of our clients right now have us working on new build projects, and while we love working on a home from the ground up sometimes it’s refreshing to get that instantaneous satisfaction that comes from working on a remodel. Not just because the turn around is so much faster, but because the sheer high that comes from seeing what a home used to be to what it is now is simply just unbeatable!

Our clients of this kitchen renovation are young and energetic, and their home is in the dreamiest neighborhood overlooking Utah Lake. When they came to us with their request for an updated kitchen we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it and make the space as hip and stylish as they are!

The kitchen they had been living with had some interesting angles, which was only amplified by an angular and choppy island that we just couldn’t wait to change. We moved a wall to soften the angles in the room, squared up the island, and reoriented the appliances to establish a better work triangle.

The stunning custom hood, made of satin nickel and antique brass, is the crown jewel of this space! It creates the perfect focal wall to add the balance that the room was lacking. We chose to use a fresh and classic white for her cabinets, while using a contrasting navy (custom color mix) on her island. We love how the navy on the island and in those bistro bar stools complement each other perfectly!

We chose a fabulous white subway back splash with a unique shape and hand-poured texture. It gives it that high end look you would expect from only the most gourmet of kitchens. While our client loved the look of marble, it just simply was not realistic with her two little kids. We opted to go for something low-maintenance that also had the most gorgeous veining similar to marble: Macaubas Quartzite.

The best part about this project was receiving a photo from our client of her baking cookies with her kids in her beautiful new space. That’s the real pay-day for us! She is in love with her kitchen and it functions just the way it should.

I had a great time reading this post especially it talks about one thing I am excited of, house renovation. This show and tell is very effective actually because as readers, it inspired me a lot on how to make our own home a safe and comfortable place for everyone.


Can you tell me about the branches in your fabulous pitcher? Are they real or artificial? I have a hard time finding quality pieces to put in pitchers/vases…

Alice Lane Home Collection

The branches in the pitcher are real Manzanita. They’re a beautiful full leaf branch when in bloom and really sturdy.


This kitchen reno is amazing! I love the kitchen faucet and am wondering if you could tell me the brand/style?

Gorgeous kitchen ! Could you share the sink brand please ? And what color did you use for cabinetry?

Alice Lane Home Collection

The sink is Kohler. The cabinets were painted Farrow & Ball Hague Blue.


This kitchen is gorgeous! I just renovated my kitchen and have the same white cabinets, and am also planning on painting my island blue, so I loved seeing these photos. Would you mind sharing the cabinet hardware? I have been looking everywhere and can’t find ones that are similar. These are perfect!
