Project Statement

Tackling a kitchen redesign that completely upgrades the home’s floor plan is the perfect opportunity to showcase design creativity and workmanship while creating a space that’s fully functional for its homeowners. The objective of this kitchen remodel was to extend the kitchen space and create a more open floor plan. The homeowners’ wanted to include space for dining as well as a desk area. Since the home serves as the homeowners’ vacation home, the design objective was also to create a space that’s luxurious and soothing, the perfect lavish getaway for a family that loves to cook. The result was an expanded room that served as a more functional entertaining space for the homeowners.


The approach was to break down the existing bar and transform two separate rooms into one large space, which effectively opened up the floor plan and breathed life back into the once cramped kitchen. The door to the garage was moved to create a more cohesive Kitchen plan. The existing pantry was built-out to provide more functional storage. The homeowners are very passionate about cooking so the space was upgraded with better storage, easier access, additional counter space, and brand new appliances. New Sollera Fine cabinetry in painted maple wood was installed throughout the kitchen with special storage features throughout. A variety of GE Profile Series appliances were also installed, including an induction cooktop, electric wall oven, built-in microwave, warming drawer, French door refrigerator and built-in dishwasher. To round out the upgrades, a round solid wood tabletop by Axiom was incorporated into the kitchen island, offering the homeowners a convenient dining area in a much larger kitchen space. The desk space was designed at the far end of the kitchen, out of the main working area and seamlessly blends in with its surroundings.


In keeping with the transitional and well-appointed feel of the kitchen, the Paradigm luxury vinyl plank (waterproof) flooring was installed throughout the space. The kitchen was painted in Benjamin Moore’s Paris Rain shade, which highlights the beautiful glass accent tiles throughout. To improve its energy efficiency, the kitchen was rewired with an LED lighting package, consisting primarily of Cree CR6 recessed lighting. Under cabinet lighting and illumination from the stove’s range hood were also incorporated to improve the task lighting in the kitchen and desk area. A sophisticated Kichler pendant light was installed above the built-in dining table and provides great ambient light. This Bluestone Reimagined project is the perfect representation of thoughtful design and construction when undertaking a complete kitchen overhaul and remodel. The resulting kitchen boasts an open floor plan and appears much more luxurious and livable, while functioning properly for its homeowners.
