The kitchen was a complete tear-out and re-construction.

I worked to integrate elements from the existing architecture into the space, give it a sense of grandeur, and make the layout more efficient and functional. In addition to upgrading the finish palette, cabinet style/design and appliances, and adding a feature wall and floor accent mosaic, the following space modifications were made:

  • The adjacent breakfast nook and family room/bar cabinetry was refinished and the trim was replaced to coordinate with the new finishes
  • The kitchen layout was enlarged by 2 ft, making it more spacious and efficient. And I was able to do so while only encroaching into the adjacent family room by 14 in.
  • The inefficient corner pantry was removed and replaced with wall and island pantry space.
  • Upgraded and relocated the refrigerator from 48” to 63” Sub-Zero.
  • Upgraded the wall oven and cooktop to a 48” GE Monogram range with cast stone hood surround.
  • Built-in convenience amenities, such as powered drawers for laptop and charging station, dish-towel-drying rack, pull-out shelves at blind cabinet (seen in detail photos on website).
  • Relocated existing recessed lighting, added pendant fixtures, under-cabinet task puck lights and in- and above-cabinet accent lighting.
  • Included in the all-new plumbing fixtures were pull-out faucets, a pot filler, instant-hot water dispenser, garbage disposal air switches.
  • To take better advantage of the lake view, the existing garden window was removed. The opening placement was adjusted and the exterior wall was built out to accommodate a deep-set fixed-pane window with extended counter surface sill.
