These clients had lived in their home for about 10 years; loved the neighborhood, not the house.

They initially wanted an addition. We believe that many homes do not lack square footage but instead, lack functional design. We developed a plan that kept within their existing footprint and improved the space in a way that truly changed the way they used their home. We opened this galley kitchen to the living room by creating counter height seating through the load bearing wall. This united the two spaces without compromising the use of either area. The simple relocation of the refrigerator, use of the end wall, and removal of soffits created a much more functional, beautiful kitchen with nearly 35% more storage within the same footprint. The chosen materials provided a very clean look that is also very easy to keep clean. Following completion of this kitchen, Cosentino, the makers of Silestone Quartz Countertops, awarded us with 2nd place in the nation for their “Ugly Kitchen Makeover” contest.
