20th Century Kitchen Facelift

Sometimes we don’t need to tear down walls. All it takes to make a home function better is great design and cutting edge technology.

The Adorne under-cabinet system is a flexible and modular solution designed to eliminate kitchen clutter.

The Project

The homeowners wanted Meadowlark to help them give their late 20th century-built home a facelift. Using mixed cabinetry and the existing floor plan, their tired 90’s kitchen has been transformed. Lighter finishes, darker floors and under-cabinet lighting/charging technology, plus a clever design to increase storage capacity, created a new kitchen that is as functional as it is beautiful.
