After 22 years you can pretty much say we have seen it all. Usually it is a kitchen with cabinet doors or drawers that don’t close any more, nasty floor, dated appliances with magnets everywhere or small spaces that need to accommodate larger families. In addition to this we see spaces where everything was originally just plopped into a space and expected to work. Drawers collide, the standard NKBA triangle was followed whether it worked or not.
Flash forward to this project- You must see all the photos below! A little background:
The perfect location, beautiful views out of each window. A roomy grand house, neat and tidy and then there was the kitchen. Designed with all the latest and greatest cabinets, granite countertops, wood floor and every high end built in appliance you can think of. CRAMPED into a space that barely left enough room for two butts on a good day! An adjacent room that was originally a designed as a poker room had turned into a “what do you do with this room” kind of space that was now the family catch all.
Here you have before photos of the kitchen. At first glance it looks very nice. – Note the size
This is the wall we removed
See the seating space at the overhang? If you used it you would be sitting in a doorway!
By looking at these photo you realize that the photos can’t show everything because it is too Tiny! Or, because that was it! I’m just saying…
What we did was simple for our crew at SCC Kitchen Bath & Home. Time consuming (10 weeks) but worth the wait for the kitchen to match the remainder of the home. First on the list was to remove a bearing wall and open the space up!
The wall is GONE!
Left side Freezer- Right side Refrigerator 60" wide!
Large format Tile floor, new beverage cooler, a mixture of painted cabinets topped off with Quartzite and granite countertops. A stylish wood hood and a marble backsplash encompass the cooktop. Wine storage area, desk and storage with room for the computer, pantry space galore, refrigerator and freezer for all the entertaining goodies and family groceries.
Multiple work spaces welcome help and allow for several tasks to be completed at one time.
Hood & Cook top----Same location-New style
Here you have it. A kitchen that fits the home and the homeowners needs. And… looks great with all the natural light we let in or mood lighting in the evening with the extra hint of elegance from the island lights.
Hire a designer that works for you, and the space! Not everyone can have a kitchen like this however when the remodel is complete the space should fit the home and the lifestyle of the owner- don’t you agree? We welcome your comments.
