  • Modern Small Kitchen , After living with a tired kitchen (linoleum tiles, Formica and wall paper on horsehair) for 15 years, we decided to modernize our kitchen.  Having closed my business, and finding myself with free time ... it was now or never.  The scope of the project was a complete gut including removal of 2 walls (including structural beam work on the exterior wall) to open up the kitchen to an existing enclosed sun porch.  Probably the biggest challenge was designing the space to have a modern open feel while still maximizing storage and counter space.  In this arena, incorporating a full size refrigerator (36" x 36" footprint x 70" tall) into an already small space (10' x 11') was root to numerous heated conversations.  My wife wanted to keep our large refrigerator’s space, and I wanted a new counter depth fridge that would not overwhelm the space and make the room have a lighter feel.  After building a cardboard mockup of the cabinetry (see pictures) we settled on using the old monster but removed the over-the-fridge cabinet to reduce the disproportionally out of scale proportions.  The mockup was the best tool to solve this dilemma since my wife had a hard time visualizing this design even after showing her a 3D computer rendition (Google Sketchup).  Another challenge we faced was finding affordable modern style kitchen cabinetry not made out of pressboard (such as Ikea).  After lots of searching we settled on custom-built cabinetry that due to its simple line frameless design was comparable in pricing to Kraftmaid.  I had a cabinet-maker spray conversion varnish since the lacquer test piece was not durable enough to our nail scratch test even after 10 days of curing.  Custom cabinetry sizes also allowed us to fully utilize the space and preserve the modern clean line. Incorporating a vent hood was also a priority.  Not having one for 15 years meant we never cooked fish inside and had a stool handy to pull the fire alarm off the ceiling whenever we pan fried meals.   As a result we relocated the stove and fridge across from each other and used the new beam detail to create a soffit to house an 800 cfm island hood.  The island hood was customized to vent through the soffit and was a key design feature to allow sunlight in and unobstructed views of the back yard. I used brushed stainless and glass doors in the upper cabinets to reduce the amount of high gloss gray of the cabinetry.  Although the original plan was to use frosted glass as the insert, my wife disliked the idea of seeing through glass the colorful cereal boxes and crammed mess.  So I used white back painted glass that gives it a similar look without exposing what brand of pasta we buy.  To complete the contemporary look, I used stainless baseboards, maple hardwood floors, and white quartz countertops with a waterfall detail. However, I still needed an accent color/feature to make the design pop.  I struggled between using a bright backsplash or a bright wall color in selected accent walls; and finally settled on lime green accent walls versus a rust orange glass tile backsplash.   , Kitchens Design

  • Espresso Chic, A dark espresso stain was used on our cabinets and was paired with a lighter floor.  We loved the long, skinny quartz back splash and wanted that to pop so we used a simple counter top so it wouldn't overpower the room. , Kitchens Design

  • From Boring to Brilliant, The old kitchen was a standard L-shaped layout with oak veneer cabinets and laminate countertops.  The entire kitchen (and adjacent dining/living areas) was gutted.  The old laundry closet was demoed to make space for the large open concept kitchen.  New flooring, cabinets, countertops, backsplash, and lighting were installed.  The finishing touch was the design of the new stair rail - now book case - that matches the kitchen cabinets and feels like a piece of furniture now.  Makes the whole open concept first floor feel like home.    Did I mention that I did most of this from Afghanistan?  Ha! Doing a remodel from half a world away was quite the experience!  , Kitchens Design

  • Pinky Master Bathroom Out...Limestone In, This master bath is better now, although it is smaller in size. The original shower pan was compromised and leaking, as if I needed another reason to remodel this bath. I put in a water and mold proof shower system, complete with waterproof membrane, drain and a tile ready shower pan (no concrete pouring was needed for the pan ). Instillation of the shower system was very easy. Pouring a concrete pan was not on my top 10 need to do learn how to do list. The original bath had one sink and a small cabinet for storage that did not hold much, so I took the cabinet out. I added a pocket door instead to eliminate the door swing into the bath since the space is long and more narrow. I vented this bath, added recessed lighting, and added floating mirrors that project from the wall.  , Bathrooms Design

  • Our New Kitchen, We renovated our kitchen and just love how it turned out. It was ALOT of work (we did everything ourselves except the countertops). Light blue wall color, neutral quartz countertops, mocha glaze cabinets with undercounter lights, mosaic glass tile backsplash, new custom built in window seat with dark mocha dining table and 2 leather chairs. We already had a black fridge and dishwasher and it wasn't in our budget to upgrade everything to stainless appliances but in the future we would like to do that., Kitchens Design

  • Cherry Dreams!, Our choice was do it up or list it and move.  We went for the former, removing two walls, eliminating an unused formal living room, to create a HUGE, open, inviting kitchen/dining/breakfast/family space united by solid oak flooring throughout.  Cherry cabinets, quartz counters, travertine backsplash, 5'x9' island, induction cooktop and more!  

Regarding the darkness....the pics were taken at night.  During the day it is bathed in light from the window over the sink, 2 bays and one bow window in adjacent rooms., Kitchens Design

  • My New Recycled Kitchen Reno Before/After, I have recycled my kitchen cabinets from the outdated 80's orange oak, to a more updated modern brown/black, shaker style. I am proud to say that I did the entire reno myself which included everything from electrical to carpentry, on a very tight budget. It took me a little better than a year, but it was done solo. (Girls rule :) !!! I realize that it is not perfect, but I am very happy with the modern changes. Now I would like some honest opinions. The finishing touches are yet to be done, so bare with me. As you will see I am in the throws of adding hits of jalapeno green. Any and all ideas are welcome. :), Kitchens Design
