The kitchen is the command center and heart of the home; it’s where families bond, learn new recipes, and share stories about their day. But over time, kitchens can become outdated and uninviting. When they do, it’s time to consider a makeover. Remodeling your kitchen provides you a unique opportunity to renovate this important space, as the owners of this DeKalb home discovered. Ken Spears Construction helped them transform their space into an inviting kitchen they can enjoy for years.
Our DeKalb clients adored their home but were ready for a change in the kitchen. It was essential to update the kitchen and open the space for more efficient use of the room. They also wanted to brighten the room and better situate the cabinetry for their space. Our team met with them in their home and created a design to bring a modern, light, and airy feel and make the room more efficient. Together we chose the perfect design elements, renovated the room, and delivered a charming and up-to-date kitchen that was perfect for their lives.

Design Changes to Create a Functional and Well-Lit Kitchen

Design Elements Used

How We Solved The Problem
Our DeKalb homeowners wanted an updated, spacious, and well-lit kitchen with an improved layout for more efficiency. To ensure they got the kitchen of their dreams, we began the transformation by removing the post in the center and replacing it with a metal beam. This opened up the room and improved the flow. We also installed new cabinetry selected for ample storage, better workspace, and efficiency. We also brought light into the room with pendant and track lighting. Our team then updated the tile floors and backsplash to help modernize and warm the room.
