From Dark and Awkward to Bright and Functional: A Louisiana Kitchen Gets a Total Makeover

The power of thoughtful space planning is essential, especially when renovating an older home. Designer and Blogger, Arianne Bellizaire from Arianne Bellizaire Interiors, stripped-down an entire twenty-five-year-old kitchen in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to create a uniquely designed space from scratch. The once dark and dated kitchen became a bright, stylish and functional space through enhancements of products and planning.

With an end goal of presenting a practical beautiful space for her clients, Arianne Bellizaire bases all of her design decisions on finding the right balance between functionality and creating a visually appealing space that makes guests want to take a second look. She creates homes specifically so homeowners can alter their style.

Sometimes with particular designs such as rustic or minimalism, homeowners can tend to feel stuck with one style.

“I never want you to be able to pinpoint one defined style of any of my spaces. Rather I want them to be a healthy mix of complementary styles that help to tell the homeowner’s story,” Says Bellizaire.

Although the masterpiece came out as a stylish, functional space, Bellizaire faced some crossroads during the renovation. The extensive construction led to the removal of an 18x cypress beam that provided structural support to the home. She also removed the upper cabinets making the space feel larger. Bellizaire had to ensure the new design incorporated enough storage and included a walk-in pantry to the plan.

With the installation of all-new cabinetry, Bellizaire was on a mission to find the perfect hardware to compliment her design, leading her to Top Knobs.

“Top Knobs is our go-to hardware resource. We love how much variety there is in the product line and how much depth there is within each collection. The Kinney and Hollin combination was the perfect, sleek complement to this kitchen renovation” Bellizaire commented.

The transition between the before and after of the kitchen was so impactful because of the versatility of the new space. From dark and awkward, to bright and functional, the homeowners have new space can that can easily evolve with their changing styles.

Flip that House: An Arizona Fixer Upper Gets a Major Facelift with Top Knobs

With only a few months to work with, Chris and Molly from Fitch Hill transformed a dated Arizona property into a crisp, timeless home for new owners. The impressively creative and meticulously designed renovation took the Scottsdale home from basic and outdated to simplistically chic with the help of Top Knobs decorative hardware.

During the initial design phase the pair drew up plans to bring a modern, yet timeless look into the home. “We brought in some more contemporary items, but overall we wanted to create a crisp design that would stand the test of time. We feel we did a great job staying on trend, while also ensuring that the home will still be up to date in 10 years.”

Working on a tight timeline, Chris and Molly pulled off a full interior remodel of the Scottsdale home that included the addition a powder room while also moving the location of the kitchen, master bath and laundry room. “This project had to come together extremely quickly from the beginning of the design phase through construction,” Chris explained. “All in the same day, plans were finalized, given to the city, a permit was granted and demo was started on the property.” While they admit the timeline was a bit of a challenge, the duo was surprisingly able to hit all of their deadlines. “Our team had such great communication that we were able to pull it off somehow.”

Knobs and pulls from the Top Knobs Lynwood Collection in Honey Bronze gave the kitchen and wet bar the classic and contemporary twist that Chris and Molly were going for. The on-trend Honey Bronze finish worked flawlessly with the white cabinetry in the kitchen, and provided a stunning contrast when used on the black cabinetry at the wet bar.

“We love Top Knobs not only because of the large selection of items for all of our different project styles, but also for the quality of the products and the customer service,” says Chris.

The design duo kept the kitchen design fresh by using a bright, open-concept layout and mixing materials throughout the space. They opted to experiment with different metals, concrete, marble, wood and quartz for a look that has quickly become a portfolio favorite.

Mixed Finishes Add Unique Style to a Modern Lake House Kitchen

When the owners of a single-family lake house in Wrentham, Massachusetts decided to remodel their home, the couple wanted something they had never seen before. With the help of Top Knobs cabinet hardware, Amy Kearns of Amy-Lynn Interiors gave them just that.

“The clients, they were a complete joy to work with. Their love for textures, patterns and their new lake views were clearly stated in every centimeter of this space.” Amy told us. Her modern take on lake house chic, with blue cabinets, Top Knobs pulls and beautiful wood floors gave this space the unique look her clients wanted.

Near the completion of the design when hardware options were being considered, Amy and her clients had originally selected a different Top Knobs collection. However, after her office got a sample of the new Hollin back plate and Kinney pull from the Lynwood collection, they quickly changed their minds.

“We texted an image of it to the client and said ‘do you love this as much as we do? Black on island and brushed on blue?’ And immediately she called us and said she and her husband agreed,” Amy says of the hardware change.

In the end, Amy used the Top Knobs Kinney pull and Hollin back plate in brushed nickel and black to complete the space. “Mixing metals makes our heart skip a beat! Ironically enough, we ordered one extra black pull and the client fell in love with the idea of using that to mark her rubbish. She thought it was a clever way of telling guest where to find it.”

The mix of Top Knobs back plates and pulls in mixed finishes created a great opportunity to do something unique, yet on trend, to bring the clients’ personal style into the kitchen.

“We really like what Top Knobs is about, they’ve got something for anyone who has a sense of style. It’s up to us as the designer to take the style and bring it to life, and the hardware plays a huge role in that. We always say this is the jewelry for the room.”

A Space of His Own Adorned with Top Knobs Decorative Hardware

With help from Top Knobs decorative hardware, designer, interior decorator  & TV host Vicki Payne helped her client Bill create a new construction home that was completely his own.  The client, a 50-year-old bachelor, wanted an open concept layout with wide open spaces, expanded living areas, a first floor master suite, floor to ceiling glass windows, wood and stone exteriors, three car garages and as much outdoor living space as possible. Most importantly though, Bill wanted to be as involved as possible in the building of the home.

The contemporary home, known as the True Residence, is located on a 2 1/2 acre wooded lot in the SouthPark neighborhood of Charlotte, NC. With a long wish list for this dream house, the new construction took over 18 months to build. Once complete, project coordinator Vicki Payne took over to turn his interior dreams into a reality.

KITCHEN

With a love for cooking and entertaining, Bill likes for the party to start in the kitchen. Vicki selected maple colored kitchen cabinets with two different finishes. To complete the look, Bill wanted something sleek but not too dainty for his decorative hardware, which is why Vicki opted for a combination of knobs and pulls from Top Knobs Sanctuary Collection in a Brushed Satin Nickel finish for the perimeter cabinets. Pulls from the Aspen Collection were used to accessorize the Middle Island cabinets.

 

SCULLERY

Located between the indoor gourmet kitchen and a custom outdoor kitchen, Vicki designed a scullery which incorporated built-in cabinets, countertops, a farmhouse style sink and a dishwasher for discrete prep and clean-up during large gatherings. The deep blue colored cabinets were decorated with Tuscan Bronze pulls from the Top Knobs Dakota Collection for an easy to grip, strong and dependable pull.

 

LAUNDRY ROOM

Sticking with the deep blue theme, a laundry room with a vast amount of storage space features blue cabinets and dark appliances.  To add a pop of brightness to the room, the walls and floors were finished with light colored tile and paint, while the cabinets were made complete with Top Knobs Princetonian Bar Pulls in Brushed Satin Nickel. A tall window overlooking the laundry room sink adds light and dimension to the space.

 

GYM & GUEST BATHROOM

Keeping the contemporary theme alive, the gym & guest bathrooms feature two of Top Knobs popular styles of the present day. In the gym bathroom, Juniper Berry Diamond cabinets are finished with pulls from the Top Knobs Sanctuary Collection while Clover Diamond cabinets in the guest bathroom are accessorized with Polished Steel knobs and pulls from the Top Knobs Stainless Steel Collection.

 

MASTER BATHROOM

Last but not least comes the master bath. As one of only two rooms in the house with custom cabinets, the mahogany colored horizontal wood grain design required custom fabrication resulting in a completely unique look. To finalize the feel of the space, Vicki chose Top Knobs Arched Pulls from the Sanctuary Collection in a Polished Chrome finish.

Thank you, Vicki, for choosing Top Knobs to adorn Bills’ new home! See Vicki Payne’s entire project in a 10-part series entitled “A Space of His Own” starting here.

Award Winning Mid-Century Modern Kitchen Comes to Life with The Aspen Collection

In Chevy Chase, Maryland Meghan Browne from Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath was tasked with transforming a dated, closed off kitchen into an modern entertainment destination with a space savvy twist, aided by Top Knobs.

To get the project started the team removed the wall separating the kitchen from the family room, allowing for more natural light to extend into the room. An added doorway was installed so the cook has direct access to the dining room without getting in the way of guests at the island.

Concentrating the sink, dishwasher, double ovens and fridge along a single wall threatened to leave little room for usable storage. To allow for the most space possible, Meghan and the team boldly located the sink flush with the right edge of the window to get a larger base cabinet that is perfect for nesting bowls, pots and pans or small appliance storage.

Once the layout was finalized, large cabinets spanning from the floor to the ceiling were installed throughout the kitchen.  Flat Sided Pulls in Silicon Bronze Light from the Top Knobs Aspen Collection added necessary charm that pulled the entire design together.

This kitchen went on to win First Place in the Small Kitchen category for the NKBA Baltimore/Washington Chapter Kitchen and Bath Design Awards in March. It has also been featured online by Kitchen and Bath Business. Thank you to Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath for sharing your Top Knobs project with us!
