Full service kitchen design and remodeling
Style: Warm Contemporary
For our Desert Highlands project, we remodeled the kitchen, laundry room, and master bath along with all the flooring.
In the beginning, this house had a nonfunctioning kitchen with an oversized peninsula that felt squatty with double soffits above the cabinets. There were tight walkways that allowed only one person in this space. We took this kitchen and unraveled the complicated angles. By removing the massive peninsula and double soffits, we were able to add in a gorgeous island that opened up the kitchen to the breakfast nook and living room. This added a more cohesive flow with the rest of the home. Our clients went with two toned cabinet finishes and countertop material. For the island, they chose a warm grey brown upgraded finish with a one-of-a-kind quartzite. For the perimeter, an upgraded finish in the grey family was chosen to compliment the island, as well as a quartzite for the countertop and backsplash. Both cabinets are a beveled shaker with a beveled edge detail that makes it more furniture like. In the breakfast nook, we added floating shelves and a dog bowl center with matching cabinet finishes from the perimeter. This kitchen came complete with new hardware and a workstation sink long enough for two people to stand and enjoy the scenery.
For the laundry room, the early 2000s red was begging for a paint upgrade and the cabinets were outdated. Our client wanted to keep the same grey tones from the rest of the home but wanted something fresh. They went with a flat panel TFL and chose a glass penny tile that is appealing to the eye. By building in the washer and dryer, this laundry room now makes doing laundry much more enjoyable.
For the master bathroom, it was dark and cold that felt spread apart with creaky storage. Not to mention a poorly constructed partition in between the bathroom and closet. For this master bath, we removed the built in jacuzzi, rebuilt the wall between the closet and bathroom, and enlarged the shower. The shower kept the same shape but expanded in depth. Our client went with floor to ceiling large format tile that creates a waterfall of serene. Small mixed stone hexagon mosaics help bring this spa together. The same large format tile was used around the new freestanding tub to carry that same serene spa feeling. We also re-worked the master bath entrance coming in from the bedroom. For both entry’s, we installed black metal barn doors with frosted glass. Our clients went with a grounding dark stain on beveled shaker cabinets, with a textured tile on the vanity wall. Adding the towers at the end of the vanity created symmetry and anchored this area, while designing functional storage. The same quartzite that was used on the kitchen perimeter was used in the master to bring in warmth. This master bath now feels like a getaway spa complete will a beautiful desert view.
In the end, this home gave back its 2000s angles and turned into a relaxing transitional home that will last.
