Kitchens are the heart of the home, and we love nothing more than putting life back into them! It should be a place where family and friends gather to share good food, laughter, and fun times. So why not make your kitchen as beautiful and functional as possible? Our kitchen remodel service can do just that!

Our latest project is a complete remodel of a large kitchen and dining room in a Newbury Park home. We started by understanding the client’s pain points about the old kitchen and their dream for the new kitchen. The end result is a beautiful and functional kitchen space perfect for cooking and hanging out with the family! Read on, as we walk you through the details of this transformation. We can’t wait to show you photos of the finished product!

Understanding the client’s need for a kitchen remodel

A kitchen remodel is a big project that requires a lot of planning and patience. It’s not just about adding new cabinets and changing the countertops. A kitchen remodel is an opportunity to think about what you want your kitchen to be and how it will fit into your life.

You should start by thinking about what you want from the space. Do you want more counter space for cooking? More storage for pots, pans, and dishes? Maybe you want to reconfigure the layout or open it to an adjoining room? You should also think about how much time and money you want to invest in the project.

For this project, the owners wanted their kitchen to look and feel just like they imagined an ‘ideal’ kitchen would command. Naturally, that included modern-style interiors as they were tired of their outdated brown cabinets and busy granite countertops. They also wanted to remodel their pantry and butler walkway so it would not be so boxy, sticking out into the room.

As soon as the client signed on with our kitchen remodel designer, Alana, she immediately went to work. Alana listened to our clients’ desires and thoroughly examined their space, giving her a clear understanding of their pain points. From there, she created a design plan for renovating their kitchen, one that fits in perfectly with their budget and expectations.

Our Solution

While keeping the main footprint of the kitchen, our designers worked hard to redesign the kitchen into a modern style to create a welcoming and spacious feel. We had to make sure all elements were carefully considered – from the layout and management of electrical outlets to the beautiful countertops and cabinets.

We relocated the dividing wall between the pantry and the butler’s pantry walkway to gain two feet of space, and we added a new door to access the hallway.

We also installed a built-in bench along the dining room wall to provide a space for sitting, relaxing, and taking in the opulence of the new kitchen.
