Add a Kitchen Remodel to the List
Originally being contacted by the homeowners to reattach and stabilize two additions that were falling off the home, they soon asked us to transform the entryway, dining room and staircase (featured as: “Redoing the 1970’s Style Staircase”). It didn’t take long for the homeowners then to decide to continue their home improvements and asked us to do just one more project: a kitchen remodel.
As seen in the before photos below, the existing kitchen, like the staircase, had a very 1970’s look with all oak cabinetry and misplaced appliances (unless you’re 7 foot tall). For this project we kept the same foot print but updated all the cabinetry with custom made alder cabinets that added storage capability. The tile work compliments the stainless steel appliances while the cabinet color helps the granite patterns pop. Further, eliminating the soffits allowed us to extend the cabinetry to the full ceiling height.
Additionally, we needed to create a better use for an area of the kitchen that did not flow with food preparation. This area was re-purposed as a combination beverage center and home management center – complete with standup desk and file storage. Household management is certainly more fun with a glass of wine in your hand!
Our design goals for this project:
- Update the oak cabinetry
- Update and relocate misplaced appliances
- Enhance the storage capabilities
- Find a better use for an area of the kitchen that was seemingly detached
