The Goodman Family had recently finished a master bathroom remodel with Country Creek Builders, so when it came time to renovate their kitchen, they knew whom they could trust to handle the task. They were familiar with Country Creek Builders design process, detailed estimating and of course the quality of our workmanship.
FIRST STEP – DETERMINE WHAT YOU DISLIKE ABOUT YOUR KITCHEN
The existing kitchen had a pantry closet that did not utilize the space or provide enough storage for this busy Apple Valley Family. It was difficult to keep track of items in the closet and it seemed the door was always in the way. The Goodman Family entertains a lot and they did not like the small doorway from the kitchen into the formal dining room area. They also desired a larger island to give family and friends a place to gather. The fact that the kitchen did not have a place to mix cocktails without storing bottles and ice on the island was also an issue. The existing window above the kitchen sink was a three paneled window with an upper Transom Glass and the patio door also had a transom piece of glass above the door. They did not like the kitchen window obstructing the view of the deck and blocking natural light. All their concerns and dislikes were considered when the design process started for this project.
ALL CONCERNS ADDRESSED
After several revisions to the design of their kitchen, the Goodman family could see their dream kitchen starting to happen. The sink window was removed and replaced with a large fixed window that brought additional natural light into the kitchen. The patio door was replaced with an 8’ tall patio door that did not have a transom panel above the door. These two changes made a huge difference in the feel of their kitchen space. The pantry closet was removed and replaced with a huge pantry cabinet that had pull out shelves. The doorway into the formal dining room was changed from a 30” opening to a 48” opening. A 9-foot-long island was designed with seating for six, a undercabinet microwave and a trash recycle pullout.
A dry bar was incorporated into this kitchen design that included a paneled front undercabinet fridge, arched base wrap toe kicks, paneled ends and a bumped up upper cabinet with wine cubbies and glass doors.
The cabinets were painted with Sherwin Williams Alabaster white and flat panel doors with soft close hinges, soft close drawers and a 3” cove molding were all added as part of the new design.
A handmade 3 x 12 subway tile was selected for the splash area and a recessed niche was built into the splash area behind the stove and finished off with Blue Lagos Hexagon Hi/Lo Mosaic tile. A 30” Apron Front farm sink was selected and complimented with a Vicostone Eclipse countertop.
