Everyone ooohs and awwws when they see this finished kitchen. Can you believe it’s even more stunning in person? With so much natural light the spaces take on a different character between day and night. Prior to this remodel the homeowners had a challenging design dilemma as the home had been updated by the previous owners but in a way that did not make sense or function well. It looked outdated and felt choppy. Not a home they were excited to entertain guests in. The challenge was to come up with creative solutions that connected the spaces, as well as tie in a galley kitchen design – a functional favorite of theirs. Walls were taken away, wide arch openings were added and many things moved places. The resulting spaces now flow perfectly and make entertaining family and friends a dream come true.

The finishes reflect the historic charm of the hundred year old home, such as the custom diamond Tudor window leaded glass panels in the bar. The finishes also marry the tastes of both husband and wife as both played integral roles in choosing the finishes with Rebekah, their designer. The white quartz countertops and the light glazed brick backsplash add a transitional layer, coupled with the rich cherry wood cabinet finish and light gray painted cabinets. The custom cabinet design is luxuriously tailored to every inch of their kitchen and provides ample storage, even for the most seasoned of chefs. The range hood design is a beautiful statement piece that distinctly crowns the kitchen.

Such a beautiful project for great people. And aren’t those leather bar chairs yummy? Everyone loves them.
