Dedication towards nurturing and caring for people with a central focus on gaining a second chance in life, growth and development means to give continuous effort on inspiring, supporting and helping them to discover their own potential and strengths. Transitioning back into a normal lifestyle in order to rejoin a conventional community can become dismaying, which is why a safe haven is important and necessary for anyone recovering and on their way towards sobriety. Nestled within New Haven County and just minutes away from Fairfield County, CT the Step Up Inn recovery home, a private transitional home for women located in West Haven, Connecticut offers sheltered and family oriented living to help the time warm and welcoming.
That is why we regard such an admirable cause with great respect, and have had an honor in presenting an inviting environment by utilizing a bright and open Kitchen Remodel into the abode. Making it a place where the women can take comfort in preparing meals with ease and in all safe handling. In keeping with the new transformation,both in the home kitchen and overall inspiration, we understood the importance of maintaining the original quintessential charm of the house. In this spacious age-old Colonial styled home we created a design with a blend of tradition and a slight modern appeal implementing a clean transitional Kitchen Design.
Taking on a fresh start, the entire kitchen had been restored from top to bottom. As we communicated with the representatives of the home there were important emphasis in maintaining a healthy and environmentally green atmosphere. The installation was actualized through the use of white shaker wall and base cabinets with an acrylic finish free from lead and cadmium in a custom solid wood material. All of the a cabinetry was customized to fit and fill the u-shaped kitchen and run flushed to the high ceiling for extra storage use. To complement and balance out the structure of the wood cabinets design a solid custom built pantry closet was also added. Ensuring everyone in the home had efficient space for storage. Responding to the light in the room to give a feeling of pureness and cleanliness, the color choice of white within the wall furnishings and river white granite counter tops where by far the best choice for a home to nourish all souls.
We also wanted to integrate a hint of antique character by embracing portions of historical value, which lead us into the addition of classic subway Kitchen Backsplash tiles in a shiny glass finish with a whispered grey color. The tiles add contrast to the kitchen and emits a touch of glimmer enhanced through the natural lighting prevailing through the Victorian windows. And to add into the kitchen's timeless quality, oak hardwood flooring accentuated with an organic Monocoat finish along with modern stainless steel appliances gave a perfect addition. All in the essence of providing a family styled living while empowering women to build new lives.
