Classically Chic Custom Cabinets

It's not very often we get to design a custom kitchen for the same client, but when they moved to a new home they didn't hesitate to give us the honor to do it again. They had a pretty good idea for the overall style, and together we were able to achieve that vision.

 The most challenging part of the kitchen was the island and hood stain. The client had a picture of what she wanted, so together we went to the local paint store and kept adding colors until we got it right. 
 The upper cathedral mullion glass doors, coupled with the glass hutch, give the cabinets transparency and allows for showing off decorative stemware.

Open for Entertaining

The client had a clear vision: bright, open and able to entertain. Through the addition of skylights, removal of walls and lots of counter space, the vision was attained.


The original laundry (above photo right) was long and narrow. We removed the fireplace (full masonry) and moved the wall 18" into the living room. We were able to maintain the existing ceiling beams in order to keep the character of the existing room.


The kitchen was moved to the existing dining area and the bearing wall was removed between existing dining and kitchen (wall in above photo to right). 

In addition, a (3) light window well was created to bring more natural light into the new kitchen area and the existing double window was turned into an extended counter bay window (see above).


The existing stairway to the lower level was totally opened up on both sides, allowing more natural light and visual openness to the finished lower level.

We also added a custom shoe and storage bench in the expanded laundry room

Modern Master Bath Remodel

Prior to the remodel, this bathroom was your standard early 90's vintage featuring a framed brass shower door, drop-in jetted tub and standard finishes. The owner's desired a fresh, modern, open feel with some warm, spa like touches. Architecturally we decided to create a feature wall by framing in a utility shelf to hold the tub filler, decorative shelf at tub side and carried that element into the shower for product storage. By using a frame-less glass shower enclosure the feature wall carries seamlessly into the shower.

Bathroom Remodel Goes Classic

While this home was built in the 90's in more of a transitional style, the homeowners decided to add a classic twist to their bathroom. They also decided to re-arrange existing fixture locations, remove some walls and really open things up.
