Before Floor Plan

After Floor Plan

The Project Goal or Objective:

This kitchen remodel started with Owner’s wish to replace an electric glass cooktop with a commercial style stove and update the cabinetry.

They also wanted:

  • To entertain guests
  • More counter space
  • Open the kitchen up to the living room


  • 36” Dual Fuel Wolf range with a 400 CFM Vent-a-Hood provided the cooking power they were looking for.
  • A KitchenAid single oven with a convection microwave rounded out the appliance package.
  • Two storage closets were removed to allow more floor space for a large island.
  • Two pantry cabinets with roll-out shelving more usable storage.
  • A desk and double oven was rearranged to allow for a large opening to the living room
  • Created a Mudroom by closing in a portion of the garage for storage and a better flow through the kitchen

We employed an engineer to design the transfer of loads to the foundation.


  • Wellborn Cabinetry with solid plywood construction
  • High arch commercial style faucet
  • Large single deep bowl sink
  • Handmade oversized subway tile
  • Natural maple flooring


The new arrangement gave the cook much more usable counter space in addition to appliances that would work with her culinary skills. A large island and an opening to the living area gave her more ability to entertain guests. In addition an 8’ x 10’ offset in the garage was closed in to create a mudroom.
