Dark And Cramped Kitchen Gets Sunny Makeover In Alexandria

Lesli and Daniel Creedon found inspiration for the design concept behind their newly remodeled kitchen during a vacation to the Maldives. The family, which includes two 15-year-old children, wanted to capture the aesthetic of the powder-white sand and glass-blue lagoons that characterize the strand of islands to remodel their kitchen which was dark and cramped.

The sunlit and airy kitchen by Winn Design + Build includes a Claridges Thassos Water Jet tile backsplash and pendant lighting by Shades of Light
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, "White, glass-front cabinetry surrounded by white quartz countertops and a blue and white backsplash harmonize to create the Maldivian aesthetic the Creedons sought. The soft blue cabinetry on the island streamlined the sand-and-sea color palette. “The mother-of-pearl, the wavy backsplash was my splurge, my favorite component,” said Lesli. “I also wanted a little glam, hence the crystal pendants." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "An Avallon wine cooler, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Thermador range give a nod to high-end practicality. “Both kids have started to take an interest in cooking,” said Lesli. “We love to have family and friends over and now we have a great space to entertain and cook together.” The breakfast room, which seats the entire family, is encased in large windows and a set of French doors. “We are spending so much time in the kitchen during this crazy pandemic,” said Lesli. “I can’t imagine having to spend eight weeks in self-quarantine in my old, cramped, dark kitchen."
