Kitchen Remodel #1

This kitchen remodel included the renovation of both a kitchen and dining space. The remodeling project involved removing a wall between the dining room and kitchen to open the first floor.  The craftsman-style pattern in interior trim was incorporated as the back wall to the banquette in the dining area, creating an unexpected backdrop.  A window sitting very close to the floor offered the opportunity to add a charming, cushioned bench area/window seat.

Kitchen Remodel #2

This kitchen remodel involved moving walls to expand openings and open up the overall flow to make it wheelchair accessible. The kitchen features ceiling-height cabinetry and an enormous center island with tons of storage space. The marshmallow white cabinets, oak flooring, stained island, and quartz countertops work beautifully in concert together.

Kitchen Remodel #3

This project was a major transformation that involved customizing a kitchen and adjacent family room with a thoughtful balance of color and texture creating a warm and inviting space.  A structural steel beam and supporting side walls were used as a way to frame the kitchen with a wood cladding that adds an unexpected design element!

Kitchen Remodel #4

The challenge with this kitchen redesign was limited space. After living in their home for 20 years, the customer wanted to open up the area around their kitchen, make the best use of their space and ensure that family members in adjoining areas didn’t feel isolated. This family loves to cook together, and they always wanted a dishwasher! So, two walls were removed, and an engineered beam was added for support. This L-shaped layout offers added countertop workspace, as well as more storage and seating.

Kitchen Remodel #5

This once tiny 100-year-old kitchen was renovated into a spacious modern farmhouse kitchen by removing walls from 3 separate rooms. The total kitchen space now measures over 400 sq ft. with a massive center island serving as the focal point and includes a separate designated mini bar area complete with a stainless-steel bar sink, mini bar fridge, and a bank of tall pantry cabinets. Check out the custom-painted hood vent above the cooktop!
