Bright Transitional Style Kitchen Remodel


This 40-year old raised ranch frustrated our clients  with the small kitchen area and limiting layout of the kitchen, living room and dining room.


Our plan was to remove the walls between the kitchen, dining room and living room and open up the whole space. The completely remodeled kitchen featuring new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a new center island is now a showcase, and the focus of both the living and dining rooms.

However the renovation did present one fairly significant challenge. We had to transfer the weight of the main support beam without disturbing the finished basement ceiling below. To do this, we removed more of the subfloor in the kitchen and cut in new beam work.

The homeowners were also quite concerned that any “modern” updates would not take away from its inherent architecture and style. To avoid this, we used earthy tones and natural materials in the kitchen renovation, and matched the white baseboards and trim. However the most dramatic decision we made was to add Caribbean Rosewood hardwood floors in the kitchen and dining room, and extend it out through the living room, hallway, and stairs. This design feature ties all the living spaces together, and helps create a greater sense of flow.

As a finishing touch, we added new accent lighting to complement the increased natural lighting flowing through the open concept living area. Our clients now have more workspace in the kitchen, better workflow, and most importantly a welcoming entertainment area they can enjoy with friends and family.
