Breaking Boundaries: A Remodel Journey from Walls to Wow!
This project was completed in tandem with Revision Custom Home Design and it turned out
When Rebecca met with this client, they didn’t have a clear vision of what their kitchen would or could look like. They didn’t like the closed off feel but with a structural wall that needed to be removed, they weren’t sure how that would look either.
But when this…..
Went to this…
A remodel of the main floor was a no brainer. Removing all the interior walls in the space opened everything up, it allowed natural light to flood the rooms. When removing any interior walls, you have to ask “is this a load bearing wall?” This means that it supports the roof and you can not remove it without replacing it with a post and beam.
Once that was verified, it was on to selections- that’s where we came in! Once the cabinetry was selected, we tailored the design and cabinetry to work together. The two-tone colors chosen really brought in a classy twist to rustic and kept everything light and bright. Using the countertops as backsplash eliminated the need to bring in another element and texture which helped to keep this space feeling sleek and refreshing.
The buffet added in the dining room increase the storage AND gave that area function and interest. Imagine when the client finds their perfect picture and features it in the middle. *chef’s kiss*
As much as we love front running projects, we also love the change up of taking a step back and focusing on the cabinetry and countertop details. Every construction project takes team. Here is an overview of the collaboration process:
Initial Consultation: The interior designer meets with the client to understand their preferences, lifestyle, and design goals for the entire space, including the kitchen. They discuss the desired aesthetics, functionality, and any specific requirements the client may have.
Concept Development: The interior designer creates a design concept for the entire space, including the kitchen. This concept encompasses the overall style, color scheme, layout, and key design elements. They consider factors like natural light, traffic flow, and adjacent rooms to ensure a seamless integration between the kitchen and the rest of the home.
Kitchen Layout and Functionality: The interior designer collaborates with the kitchen designer to develop the layout of the kitchen, taking into account the client's needs, workflow, and ergonomic considerations. They discuss the placement of appliances, cabinetry, and fixtures to optimize functionality and create a harmonious design.
Material and Finishes Selection: The interior designer and kitchen designer work together to select materials, finishes, and fixtures that align with the overall design concept. They consider factors such as durability, style, maintenance requirements, and budget. This includes decisions on cabinetry, countertops, backsplashes, and hardware.
Cabinetry Design: The kitchen designer takes the lead in designing the cabinetry layout and storage solutions within the kitchen space. They collaborate closely with the interior designer to ensure that the cabinetry design seamlessly integrates with the overall aesthetic and functional requirements of the kitchen. The kitchen designer provides expertise on cabinet styles, finishes, hardware, and organization systems.
Collaboration on Details: Throughout the design process, the interior designer and kitchen designer collaborate on various details, such as color coordination, appliance selection, plumbing fixtures, and decorative elements. They ensure that every element within the kitchen contributes to the cohesive design scheme of the entire space.
Project Management: Both designers work together to manage the project, including coordinating with contractors, suppliers, and other professionals involved. They communicate regularly, share updates, and address any design or construction challenges that may arise during the process.
By working in tandem, interior designers and kitchen designers leverage their expertise to create kitchens that not only look stunning but also function optimally within the broader context of the home's design. Their collaboration ensures a seamless integration of aesthetics, functionality, and overall client satisfaction.
“What’s the easiest way to know you’re in a 90’s home? The small entry hall with a formal front living room, a closed off dining room, and a kitchen hidden in the back corner… plus all the gold beige paint.
Well this house is no longer stuck in the 90’s. We knocked down every wall in the main area of this home and took a dated kitchen layout into the present. The island is now a space for entertaining, and the color palette creates a neutral backdrop for whatever decorating inspiration the homeowner chooses. We made sure to incorporate special features like baking sheet storage above the fridge, a microwave under the countertop of the island, and a backsplash that extends all the way up to the upper cabinets.
We also swapped out vanities in 3 bathrooms, and added cabinets in the laundry room.
Thank you to the team at Beyond the Box for collaborating with us and making this vision come to life. Btbcabinets.com/
