Devonshire Kitchen Remodel
We were contacted by these clients to remodel their kitchen on the Northeast side of town. Typical of the era, darker finishes, combined with a small patio door to the west end deck, further reflected a kitchen, not in scale or functional with the rest of the large home.
The existing peninsula in the kitchen had been outgrown and the homeowners worked with Russ Herndon from our design team to come up with a new traffic pattern more conducive to functionality and entertaining. By deleting the peninsula and replacing it with an island, the kitchen was transformed in many ways.
We worked closely with Stoll’s Woodworking to select finishes and finalize elevations. A hump in the existing floor had to be addressed in the framing below the old floor. Our carpenters were able to level out the irregularity in preparation for a new 12×24 tile floor that was installed in the kitchen and into the laundry room. We expanded into the previous dining space and put a focus on culinary, organization, and family collaboration; around a large central island flanked by a second sink, further serving to encourage family meal preparation and socializing. With floating shelves, glass backsplash, and seamless appliance planning and integration, the new kitchen is now more functional and updated. By replacing an old existing patio door with a larger four-panel double sliding door, we were able to bring more natural light into the space to accentuate the new look and enhance connectivity to the outdoor deck.
From design to punch list, our team was able to recast this most popular room in the home into a fresh new space for these wonderful clients.
