Challenges For The Homeowner

Our clients wanted a seamless flow from the kitchen, through the living room, to the wide-open back sliding patio. Our clients desired a modern touch, incorporating chic colors and upgraded materials while switching from electric to gas cooking. As appreciators of fine whiskey and bourbon, they longed to showcase their collection in a sophisticated bar. Craving the perfect spot for a quick nibble or a hearty meal, they also sought a stylish snack bar to complete their culinary sanctuary.

• Improved view into the backyard. 

• Updated design, flow, and layout for efficient food prep and cooking

• Abundant storage and countertop space

• Better positioning of their range and conversion to gas

• Beautiful bar area to display their fine whiskey and bourbon collection

• Inviting island snack bar.

How We Solved the Problem

While meeting with the couple in their home, we discussed their specific needs and wants for their kitchen. Our design team crafted a plan tailored just for them that flawlessly balanced space, accessibility, and functionality. They worked with the couple to choose the materials and appliances to bring the project together and then got to work!

We completely revamped the kitchen, opening the wall from the family room to the new kitchen and dining area to connect with the family room, creating a seamless flow and clear visibility.  We then replaced their electric range with gas and added a gas line to the new range location. We also repurposed an unused room into a sophisticated dining space, providing more space to expand the kitchen and install more cabinets and storage space. 

We installed a bar area with narrow cabinets and shelves to the wall against stairs to accommodate their whiskey and bourbon collection. Their new open galley kitchen also features a snack bar countertop. We updated the flowing to vinyl plank throughout the kitchen and dining area for continuity of space. 

Now the couple can enjoy their dream kitchen with abundant storage space, a warm and inviting atmosphere, and all the amenities they need to entertain friends and family. We are thrilled to have been part of such a fantastic journey for our clients!
