Renovation Project: Kitchen Remodel
This project was for a couple moving from Houston to Dallas to be closer to grandkids. They bought their home earlier that year knowing that they wanted a custom kitchen before moving in. Some of the important elements to them were appliances that wouldn't clutter the countertops and a hidden ceiling fan that would cool off the space while hosting large groups.

The greatest challenge for the space was maximizing storage while removing the L-shaped island. The initial layout crowded the flow and we wanted this space to feel open to the adjacent dining nook. The key for maximizing storage was bringing the cabinets up to the ceiling and incorporating custom storage solutions. The pantry surrounding the refrigerator has custom drawers that help take full advantage of the depth.
Another important part of the design was reconfiguring the stove in a way that created symmetry and balance. Originally the stove and sink were shoved into two corners. In the new design, we made the stove and hood the center of the kitchen as a focal design point.
