Mike and Kim came to us wanting to remodel their kitchen. We presented them several options before finally hitting the mark. For this kitchen remodel, we turned the kitchen 90 degrees and added a large island. This layout really relates to the living room. There is much more countertop space, including a large island. Cabinet storage is greatly increased as well, and the plan even provides for some great open shelves next to the fridge. Another benefit is separation from the front door and the kitchen without confining either space and the gracious picture window in the stairway still sheds light and provides a view in the entry, down the stairs to the basement, and in the kitchen.

This mid-century modern house is home to an architect. So when it came to updating their bathroom he had a good idea of what he wanted. Although the bathroom needed updating, designing the space to still fit in with the design of the home was very important. Using the client’s architecture background, we worked together and made his vision come to life in our 3D renderings. We built custom cabinetry with intricate pulls on the drawers in teak wood, an exotic wood native to the tropics. The teak wood, known for its elegance and durability accompanied with the vibrant colored tile work and clean white finishes made the bathroom come together with a clean and simplistic look.
