Kitchen Update : Spexarth Design Project #2

spexarth design

Spexarth Design, based outside of Wichita Kansas, is a contracting & remodeling group specializing in a variety of services from carpentry work, drywall, and tile, to paint, architecture, and interior design. For the past year, they have been putting the finishing touches on their projects using Inspired LED lighting systems, with some fantastic results. This summer, our friends at Spexarth kicked things off with another stunning kitchen remodel, featuring some elegant upgrades, and of course, some LED lights. Let’s take a moment to see what they’ve been up to, and admire the results of their hard work!


Spexarth Design’s clients began with a simple goal: to give their outdated kitchen some functional and fashionable upgrades. The existing two-level island posed the most immediate problem, since it offered limited space for those sitting at the bar, and didn’t provide adequate work space on the counter top. In addition to modifying the island, Spexarth’s clients also wanted to upgrade their kitchen appliances, add a new back-splash, and improve the lighting in the room. Check out the “before” pictures below to see where this project got started!

Designers at Spexarth worked with their clients to modify the kitchen layout and make the most of the existing space. The old double level island was replaced with a larger single level counter top, instantly increasing the amount of work space and area for bar seating. Elegant new counter tops were installed throughout the kitchen, and the central island was upgraded to a new under-mount single bowl sink and faucet.


On the opposite side of the kitchen, a decorative tile backspalsh was added to match the new counter tops. All appliances were upgraded from older white models to new ones with a sleek slate finish.

Last, but certainly not least, flexible LED strips were added beneath the cabinets to provide some energy efficient task lighting, as well as above the cabinets to brighten up the decorative space. In addition, some new pendants were installed to replace the existing fixtures above the island, and some recessed can lights which really gave the kitchen a more modern look!
