A space is reborn with the removal of a wall
First, describe what you’d really like – don’t worry about the potential barriers to it. That’s what we tell our clients. In the case of this kitchen remodel, one major barrier, a load-bearing wall running down the middle of the house, made the idea of an open space design for the kitchen and living area seem impossible. But not to us.
We were able to remove that wall and apply alternative engineered strategies to bear the second-floor load. This also required relocating various heating and cooling runs to the second floor, as well as rerouting a complicated weave of electrical wires. The result? A fabulous new space.
Design features include custom Dura Supreme painted cabinetry for the main areas, beautifully complemented with deep cherry for the custom island. The higher end granite countertops and gray-tiled backsplash complete the inspiring look of the remodeled kitchen area.
Hand-scraped engineered wood flooring throughout the main level (installed by the ambitious homeowner) beautifully ties together a now open and dramatically transformed space.
