This couple and their young son were just about to start their kitchen remodel when they met me and thought “maybe we should have a designer take a look at this first.”  They had their general contractor and a custom cabinet maker lined up and ready to start; what they didn’t have was a plan or finish selections.

As in all older homes, the kitchen was closed off from the main living spaces and a previous remodel had made a dark, cramped, one-person kitchen for a two-cook household.  Bad planning in the old kitchen caused you to look straight into the bathroom from the dining room and you couldn’t open the dishwasher and stand in front of the range at the same time. Relocating appliances solved these issues while also visually expanding the space. The family’s embrace of color gave them a completely unique “Urban Country” kitchen.
