From Cramped & Outdated to Spacious & Timeless

This outdated kitchen presented a host of design challenges, including:

  1. Worn-out 70’s styled cabinetry.
  2. Awkward access to stored items.
  3. Large unused space in the center of the kitchen.
  4. Only one prep area.
  5. Low ceiling height.
  6. Awkward traffic flow (one way in and one way out) because of the peninsula.
  7. No cabinet for microwave so it sat on the counter.

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

We updated the look of the kitchen with beautiful cabinetry, granite countertops, travertine flooring and a tumbled stone backsplash.

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

Our design group was able to overcome all of the design challenges:

  1. Cabinetry was replaced with timeless mocha-glazed maple cabinetry .
  2. We improved storage by adding new base cabinetry with full-depth lower shelving, slide outs, and large pot and pan drawers.
  3. The peninsula was changed out for a custom-fit island, giving the kitchen a spacious feel AND much more usable counter space.
  4. We added a second prep area (in the island) with full sink and waste disposal and a must-have pot filler at the cook top.
  5. The ceiling was raised almost 18”.
  6. Traffic now flows naturally because the custom island provides a second entry and exit to the sink and cooking area.
  7. We added a built-in oven and microwave cabinet and included a warming drawer to make sure that large meals are always served hot.
