Full service kitchen design and remodeling
Our Saratoga project had quite the transformation! We updated the entire kitchen, flooring, and bar area in this house. We incorporated a built-in coffee machine, ice maker, farmhouse sink, and wall ovens. The flooring went from a dark, outdated tile to a large format stone look. It really opened up the space and made it feel larger.
In order to make this kitchen more functional we had to play with the layout. We decided to switch the range and the fridge to better balance the space. We reduced the size of the bulky soffit to allow for taller cabinets and make the space feel more open. We shifted all the appliances down and added a built-in coffee machine & ice maker. In choosing the finishes, our client decided to go with an accent island. The white perimeter and gray stained island really updated this kitchen! Previously, the back half of the island sat at bar height. To make efficient use of space, we made it all one height. Since we extended the entire kitchen, this deleted the dining table. To accommodate for this, the large island seats six & has additional storage underneath! We used a beautiful quartz throughout the kitchen and bar area.
We used a gray glass subway tile for the backsplash with an accent tile in a similar color over the range. We used that same accent tile for the bar adjacent to the kitchen. This area was previously a blank wall that our client didn't know what to do with. We added some storage, 2 wine fridges, and floating shelves with lighting to brighten up the space.
After updating the entire kitchen, flooring, and bar area, this space felt like an entirely different home! The new flooring brightens up the space, the cabinets modernized the kitchen, and the bar added function to a space that was previously unused.
