KEEP SCROLLING TO CHECK OUT HER KITCHEN TRANSFORMATION!
Graphite helps this fashionista design her dream kitchen!
Tamryn Miller of Wannabe Fashion Blogger is known for her unique style, trendy outfits, and authentic character. She rocks all the latest looks in the streets of San Francisco. But when it came to updating her kitchen, she turned to Graphite to find a designer to help her design and visualize the possibilities for the space. We’re so excited to be working with her on this transformation! Check out the progress below!
Tamryn’s kitchen was definitely in need of an upgrade, not only to modernize the old appliances and finishes, but to reflect her personal style and desired look for the rest of the house. She had already done a few temporary cosmetic changes like light fixtures and wallpaper, but she wanted to take things to the next level to create a kitchen that was modern, maximized natural light, and flowed into the open living room area.
step 1: survey existing conditions
The first step in the project, as with any project, was to have an architect visit the home. Here we observe the existing space to get an idea of what we’re working with and how it relates to the rest of the house. We also measure and sketch existing conditions, which can later be translated into the computer to produce architectural drawings. We’ll also take photos of the space!
step 2: inspiration & design direction
Next, we want to better understand the style and design direction you’re going for. This will involve questions from your architect, possibly surveys, and sharing inspiration images that you like. Tamryn shared a few inspiration images with us to give us somewhere to start! Don’t worry if you don’t know what you like! Your architect will guide you through this process!
step 3: design
This is the fun part! The architect puts together some proposed designs to present to you. For Tamryn we created a couple of design boards showing suggested material options as well as renderings to help her visualize the materials in the space.
Tamryn loved the looks we presented her! The next step is to get her some material samples and make some final selections! Stay tuned for updates as this kitchen transforms!
