  • Kansas City Designer’s Dream Kitchen – After Photos

Last updated on December 10, 2022

This is the culmination of an ongoing project in Kansas City’s historic Waldo neighborhood. You can catch up on what happened in weeks 1 through 5 here

Just a few weeks ago, the Allmon kitchen was cramped and uninspiring. Sure it was effective, but it never became a go-to gathering spot for Debby and her family. The cabinets and appliances were a little outdated, and the floorplan was cramped, separating the kitchen from the rest of the Allmon home.


Well, their dream kitchen remodel is now finished and the results are stunning. The grey backsplash and tile look great with the white cabinets and new stainless steel appliances. The combination of chic patterns on the lighting, the chairs and even the backsplash really bring the entire design together. Add in the bold color and pattern of the wallpaper in the half bath, and you have an awe-inspiring design that is sure to bring the wow to any gathering.

Beyond just the design elements, the space now fits the everyday needs of the Allmon family. The new, open floorplan makes it easier for the family to gather.

New functionality was added throughout the space, including an update to the existing mudroom. This photo comes complete with some hometown, Kansas City pride.

The half-bath has seen possibly the most dramatic makeover, going from a garish pink tile to a bold wallpaper.

The wallpaper in the newly finished half-bath adds a bold splash of color to nicely contrast the grey tones in the kitchen.



Finally, the real showstopper here is the new, built-in china hutch with glass on 3 sides. This great piece becomes a great focal point between the dining room and the kitchen.

The finished china hutch is sure to be a conversation-starter.

Thank you for following us on this project! We can’t wait for you to join us on the next one.

The dark finish on the huge center island contrasts nicely with the white cabinets.
