Project description

This project presented quite an interesting challenge for us. The homeowners recognized that their existing kitchen was dark, outdated, dysfunctional, and very dated.

So, they wanted an eat-in kitchen, an island, apron front sink, and as much storage as they could find. Besides the kitchen, they wanted to renovate the rear entry and add a powder room for first floor.

The intriguing part of this project was the unique storage options and the banquette creating the eat-in kitchen. Had we designed a typical banquette, it would have either not had enough seating, or the seating would have been in the way of the path from the formal dining room to the kitchen.

So, we designed banquette seating on the ends of the table that slide in and out as needed, thus adding more seating when the kids have friends over, or mom and dad can invite two couples over for dinner.

As a Remodeling Contractor figuring out what would work best with design in each of our projects had been a challenge. Design Build Solutions solves that problem with every job we work with them on. From the 3-D rendering, creative design, or simply a placement of a key outlet, they excel at teaming with the Contractor, while giving great value to the client. Using the latest technology they allow you to see what the finish project will look like before you start, which is a great asset for everyone. We have used them on several projects now ( including one currently being done), and look forward to continuing with them on all of our Design Build projects in the future.
