Our client’s original kitchen was enclosed by a wall dividing it from the living and dining area. The use of rich wood, navy tones, and L-shaped millwork gave the space little room to breathe.

Our client’s kitchen renovation goals

As part of this kitchen renovation, we sought to help our client:

  • Design-build an open space that connects the kitchen to the rest of the home
  • Create a centralized space in the kitchen by installing a large, multi-purpose kitchen island
  • Adding additional storage space that is easy to keep organized
  • Refinish the existing hardwood flooring so that it ties into the new luxury vinyl tile

The kitchen renovation project got underway by us fully gutting the space and removing the separating wall. With the wall removed, there was renewed flow and energy between the living, dining, and kitchen areas.

Tackling kitchen storage with smart solutions

Next, we tackled the need for more storage in the kitchen. We introduced floor-to-ceiling cabinets that surround the homeowner’s refrigerator. The shelving in the pantry cabinets was designed with specific uses in mind—for example, to hold small appliances. Many of the shelves slide out for easy access to what is needed.

From the built-in seating at one end of the ample-sized 10’ island, there’s not a bad view in sight. Looking into the home, you’ll catch a glimpse of the floor-to-ceiling faux-stone tile that surrounds a fireplace above a dark wood floating mantle. In the opposite direction, you can see into the backyard garden, with tons of natural light flooding the space.

Throughout the space, we guided our client to select quality and durable materials, products, and finishes, including:

  • Vicostone quartz from Canadian Countertops
  • Ames Tile as the supplier for the backsplash tile
  • Richelieu kitchen hardware
  • Kohler faucets and Bristol Plumbing for the sink
  • Bosch, LG, Whirlpool appliances
  • Robinson lighting and Kichler lighting

The space feels airy and light thanks to two-tone cabinets, accents of natural wood, and industrial-chic fixtures, which blend traditional with modern styles.

After the kitchen renovation, this home is the perfect place to relax or host friends for a meal and a bottle of wine.
