Copper Sky's OBIE Award: Best Kitchen over $50,000 (First Place)

Posted by Jim Walker on Jan 3, 2019 12:04:39 PM

Looking back on 2018, we’re proud to have been named the OBIE Awards Remodeler of the Year, but taking home this title wouldn’t have been possible without the devoted care our team gives to each project we take on. Our attention to the details has been recognized through the other OBIE awards we garnered this year for individual categories like Best Kitchen over $50,000. This is our second year winning first place in this category, and we can’t wait to take you on a tour of our winning kitchen in the Atlanta, GA area.

Before Our Reno

Before Copper Sky transformed this gorgeous kitchen, it belonged to an awkward, outmoded home in Dunwoody. With a wall separating the kitchen from the adjacent dining room in true ‘70s fashion, the central living area felt both cramped and non-functional.

Our Kitchen Updates

Because the wall separating the kitchen and dining room was load bearing, our renovation team called in an engineer to help us carefully install a beam to support the home’s second story and prevent the already renovated upstairs rooms from shifting during the transition. The result is a visually non-obtrusive engineering and remodeling masterpiece that allows for a more modern and open layout.

In the kitchen itself, we capped all-new, white cabinetry with marble-effect quartz countertops. We also installed an elongated island to provide ample prep and storage space, complemented by barstool seating near a wine cooler and drink station (with statement backsplash) to accommodate comfortable hosting. Note how the three barstools are visually echoed by the three glass pendant lights, creating a pleasing symmetry that fits in with the overall minimalism of layout and colors that is at once simple and elegant.

Beyond the Kitchen

Beyond the kitchen, we also brought the dining room up to date with new wall and trim work, as well as a unique, modern chandelier that ties in nicely with the glass pendants above the kitchen island. Out of sight, our home updates extended all the way to the master bathroom, which won OBIE’s best bathroom over $25k award! 

Last year, we took home four OBIE Awards, and this year, we celebrate another four in even higher placements. In 2019, we anticipate another strong year to come--sky’s the limit!
