Leawood Kitchen Remodel Transforms Kitchen, Trades Peninsula for Island

The 19th Annual Kansas City NARI Remodeled Homes Tour is right around the corner and Mission Kitchen and Bath is proud to be showing off a recent kitchen remodel in Leawood.

A number of changes went into transforming this outdated kitchen into a modern culinary masterpiece. Perhaps the biggest change was removing the peninsula and replacing it with a more functional island, including a buffet area for entertaining. Not only did this change enhance the traffic flow through the kitchen, but it also exposed the beautiful fireplace in the dining area. The 1990s soffits were also removed, allowing the ceiling overhang to be raised to the same height as the existing ceiling in the kitchen, giving it a more open feel. The refrigerator, double ovens, and a pantry were located to a single area for improved convenience.

Several cosmetic changes were also made to enhance the overall design of the kitchen. The cabinets were replaced with maple cabinetry featuring raised panel doors with a stain and glazed finish, while the island showcases a paint and glaze finish. A tumbled marble backsplash, including glass tile accents above the cooktop, complement the Snowfall granite countertops. Pendant lighting over the island combined with recessed lighting throughout the kitchen provide illumination and ambiance.

The Kansas City NARI Remodeled Home Tour is April 23-24. Tickets can be purchased online in advance or at any of the homes during the tour. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Kansas City. Be sure to visit this amazing kitchen transformation by Mission Kitchen and Bath.
