This kitchen remodel was both a functional and aesthetic upgrade. Steve and Marsha were very prepared clients, and knew where they wanted everything before we even started to remodel! With a strict budget, we made sure these clients were getting the best value for their money. We removed the soffits and brought the cabinetry up to the ceiling, adding more storage. For even more storage, we added a pantry to the right of the refrigerator. We also pushed the peninsula back 9” into the eat-in area to open up the work space and lengthened the peninsula to include built-in garbage and recycling bins. Can lights were included to magnify the lighting throughout this space. We eliminated the desk, as it wasn’t used, and transformed the same area into a beverage center + coffee area that will get used daily. Open shelves were considered for display items and family heirlooms. Lastly, hardwood floors, white paneled doors, and new trim were installed throughout the first floor to create a solidified look. This kitchen is a great example of a design on a dime. And, the best part is that we finished the remodel on Martha’s birthday!
