Listening to You
Planning is a crucial step in the task of any remodeling and more so in the case of the kitchen. We will listen to you first to understand your taste and style and then help you with the design and the layout of the space.
Keeping in mind that functionality is coupled with looks; we’ll help you attain your remodeling objectives by incorporating extra features into the existing space or by expanding your space.
Let’s explore what you want to do and how it can be accomplished. New cabinets, lighting and appliances will complete the project. We don’t just deliver a completed kitchen but transformed space and your dreams.
Kitchen Remodeling Details
Traditional wall cabinets are 30 inches high, but today that looks dated. Now modern cabinets are 36 and 40 inches high which means there’s little or no soffit built above the cabinets. Instead of the soffit going to the ceiling, typical in the older kitchens, the cabinets are topped with either a small facial board and a crown molding or just a crown molding, as in the picture to the right.
In addition to the crown molding there is also the light rail molding which goes beneath the cabinets that hides the under-counter lights and in this case there are accent lights above the cabinets as well.
Lighting is of course key to the modern kitchen design. Recessed lighting comes in colors from warm (3000 k) to bright white (5000 k). Also, using accent lights are stunning and can turn your kitchen into a warm, stylish and inviting place.
A large exhaust hood can be a functional as well as a design choice. A properly vented exhaust hood with a high capacity fan is a big help in keeping your kitchen clean, especially if you like to do a lot of cooking.
The last detail to mention is the island. An island increases you counter space and can even eliminate the sink being next to stove. I don’t have to tell how a large kitchen island raises the capacity of your kitchen.
The photo above is a good shot of how an island can dramatically change the effective size of the kitchen. Sometimes when cabinet space is limited a pantry cabinet can give you a big boost in storage capacity. However the added storage took away from the counter space. In this case the extra needed counter space can be achieved with the very practical island. If it’s a small kitchen and you have a dinning room what seating you lose in the kitchen can be made up for by the seating in the dining room.
