We believe that every great design starts with the space planning. This kitchen is a perfect example of how space planning makes a major impact on the space. The original kitchen was closed off to the family room leaving the kitchen secluded from family and guests.
To create an inviting space for everyone, we opened up the wall between these two rooms and moved the cooktop to the opposite wall. The space wouldn’t have been long enough to accommodate this change, so by adding to this wall we were able to make the flip. The pantry cabinet near the refrigerator was placed in the old opening to the dining room and a new doorway was created near the family room to allow for proper traffic flow between the spaces.
A new larger window floods the space with natural light which is complimented by the accent lighting in the opposing cabinetry. A custom hood was used to create a dramatic focal point.
Coffee and tea are tucked away in this pantry cabinet. Retractable doors can be left open to allow for guests to serve themselves when you are entertaining.
Island seating was positioned near the refrigerator to allow guest to get drinks and enjoy the view while the host is preparing the meal.

Let’s face it…life is hectic! We are constantly pounded by information whether it is on social media, tv, or word of mouth. And, who doesn’t need a place to retreat to at the end of the day? I know I sure do! Updating your master bath to a place where you can relax and unwind is ideal in our modern world. There are many features that are great to incorporate for optimal revitalization. One is an air bath or soaking tub. When planning for these tubs, be sure to leave yourself room for bath items by incorporating niches, side tables, and towel bars. Tub trays are also great if the tub shape can accommodate them.
Storage is key when you want to keep necessities out of plain site. This make-up area has a docking drawer where your hair dryer, curling iron, etc. can stay when in or out of use. A large armoire style cabinet can be used to house toiletries, towels, and even undergarments if you choose.
Add a personalized touch with decorative hardware, perfume bottles, and custom edged countertops to express your unique style. A steam shower with essential oils is absolutely amazing after a long day! You can completely unwind in the comfort of your own home.
If you have a window in the bath that is limiting your shower space, incorporate it into the shower. You’ll need to seal everything properly and use materials that are durable, but it is definitely an option. Also, natural light is soothing and refreshing! Obscure glass can be used for privacy.
