BEFORE AND AFTER KITCHEN REMODEL Orange County

Our client desired a bespoke farmhouse kitchen and sought unique items to create this one of a kind farmhouse kitchen their family. We transformed this kitchen by changing the orientation, removed walls and opened up the exterior with a 3 panel stacking door.  The oversized pendants are the subtle frame work for an artfully made metal hood cover. The statement hood which I discovered on one of my trips out of California inspired the design and added flare and style to this Newport Coast home.

Nothing is as it seems, the white cabinetry looks like shaker until you look closer it is beveled for a sophisticated finish upscale finish. The backsplash looks like subway until you look closer it is actually 3d concave tile that simply looks like it was formed around a wine bottle.

We added the coffered ceiling and wood flooring to create this warm enhanced featured of the space. The custom cabinetry then was made to match the oak wood on the ceiling. The pedestal legs on the island enhance the characterizes for the cerused oak cabinetry by cabinetry through Signature Designs Kitchen Bath. There was a small space next to the entry way that was not being used so we decided to create a wine room, more for a look or an experience that to be actually used for wine since we just installed a full height subzero wine cooler into the kitchen. The wine room as custom metallic tile that creates a mood flanked by custom iron doors to close off the small wine room.

The best appliances for the chef of the home nothing less than Subzero Wolf.

Before And After KITCHEN REMODEL  in delmar ca

Kitchens are magical and this chef wanted a kitchen full of the finest appliances and storage accessories available to make this busy household function better. We were working with the curved wood windows but we opened up the wall between the kitchen and family room, which allowed for a expansive countertop for the family to interact with the accomplished home chef. The flooring was not changed we simply worked with the floor plan and improved the layout.  Custom Cabinets by Ovation Cabinetry -San Diego exclusive dealer.

BEFORE AND AFTER KITCHEN REMODEL / HOME REMODEL IN CARDIFF

New to the Cardiff by the Sea area the clients loved the home they just purchased in North County but new it needed an extensive remodel to make it feel like home so it could have ease of use as well as the ability to capture the view of the ocean. When we met we jumped into the design process and made some big decisions to move the kitchen to a better location which ultimately give the kitchen a better flow and better at incorporating multiple zones of cooking and cleaning. Highlighted throughout this clean style are modern and efficient appliances such as the steam oven. The clients can use the steam oven for quick and healthy meals when it is just the two of them or they can use it to stage cooking when they have larger groups of people to entertain. Easy to clean Cygnus Silestone countertops by Consentino surround the kitchen with quartzite highlighted at the island. Living the LUXE lifestyle.  By removing the fireplace which blocked the view the client is able to incorporate the indoor outdoor experience, which expands their living space. The end result is a combined dining room and deck capturing a California Beach style home with grand views.

AFTER KITCHEN - MEETS CHEFS DREAM. EXPANSIVE COUNTERTOP SPACE FOR COOKING, BRIGHT FUNCTIONAL WINDOW PLACEMENT.

Designs by Signature Designs Kitchen Bath met with the homeowners, the husband is a part time Chef and outgrew the tiny, outdated kitchen from the 80s. First thing I suggested to the clients was to get rid of the corner window and relocate the windows, open up the wall between the kitchen and dining room, removed an awkward drop ceiling. The old sliding door was replaced the exterior sliding door with a La Cantina Bi-Fold window, installed a new centered sink window, installed a new fixed window, and added a new Milgard exterior swing door. The new configuration allowed for more working area as well as much needed additional kitchen storage.

The La Cantina Bi-Fold window with exterior bar top, allows easy access to the outdoor covered kitchen. An integrated checkered Walnut w/Sapwood and Sapele Mahogany custom butcher block is not only an attractive detail, but a necessity for this Chef. Top of the line Thermador appliances makes this kitchen a Chef's delight.
