Complete Kitchen Remodel

  • This homes kitchen had a great ocean view but had dark oak cabinets and minimal light since the only window and view was mostly north facing
  • At the top of the clients list was to lighten up the room with white cabinetry and bring in more natural sun light
  • The client wanted a bright kitchen with clean sleek lines and no handles on the cabinets
  • The client also did a lot of cooking, baking, and entertaining so having a highly functional kitchen was essential
  • Our first order of business was to install a larger window doubling it’s original size and adding three new skylights, two in the kitchen and one in the eating bar and desk area to bring in as much natural light as possible
  • Ceiling recessed light cans and florescent lighting under and above the wall cabinets added more task and ambient lighting
  • All tall items, broom closet, pantry, oven cabinet and built in refrigerator were put together on the left entry wall
  • The remaining irregular u-shaped area creates a very functional work area with ample work counters and storage around the sink and cook top
  • The u-shape was wrapped back into a peninsula to form the multi function eating, baking prep & buffet bar
  • This peninsula area was the place the client needed for doing backing prep such as rolling out thin pastry dough
  • The peninsula was placed so it would be a convenient parking area for items going in and out of the ovens and refrigerator
  • It also served as quick meal area for two and a buffet serving area during parties
  • Added desk area: post formed laminate cabinet doors and corian counters to match the kitchen
