Traditional Kitchen Remodel in University Park
As part of a whole house remodel, these homeowners wanted to open up their kitchen to the family room and update the finishes to suit their tastes. It was important to them to open up the space to allow more comfortable interaction with family and guests when entertaining.
Secondly, the original kitchen layout lacked the right circular flow. Following “the kitchen triangle” theory developed in the early twentieth century, the three main work areas (sink, refrigerator and stove) were over 14-feet far apart. As a young family, our clients also wanted to be able to cook in the kitchen with their children at an island, participating in meal preparation or attentively watching.
A key element of the remodel was removing a large portion of a load bearing wall that separated the kitchen from the family room. Working with our structural engineer, we were able to address the overhead support beam and reinforce the pier and beam foundation at the new load support points.
We also replaced the existing poor quality builder lighting throughout the house with more efficient LED fixtures and lamps. This improved the quality of light throughout the home while reducing our clients’ energy costs. All the existing recessed can lights were replaced with new LED compatible fixtures and electronic dimmers. Additional recessed lighting was strategically placed to address task lighting over counters and work areas. Under-counter LED strip lighting was added to provide consistent lighting across the kitchen counters.
The new kitchen design addressed all of our clients’ needs and vision for their new space, functionally and visually.
