Remodel, Canyon Creek Cabinets
In partnership with Potter Construction, we remodeled this client’s dated kitchen into a modern rustic dream space. The client had just purchased a home, and after living in the space needed to make some changes. The home was dated with wood paneling, flat ceilings, and closed off rooms. They wanted to open the living room by vaulting the ceiling, create a better layout for entertaining, a kitchen with more storage and countertop space to meet their home cooking needs, and update the finishes in the space to fit their rustic contemporary aesthetic.
To do this we rearranged the home so that the kitchen and dining room, which were previously separate rooms in the home, were moved to the main living space creating an open living/dining/kitchen space. This gave the client ample space to entertain guests and an open kitchen with more cooking space and additional storage in custom cabinets that extends down the hallway.
Because the Kitchen was open to the living space, we wanted to blend the appliances in with the cabinets. To do this we specified a panel ready refrigerator and dishwasher allowing those appliances to better disappear into the cabinetry. We stuck with a neutral color palette of whites, greys, and matte black accents to allow the rustic wood details in the rafter ties and the wood cladding at the range hood to shine. Custom LED linear lighting was installed on the rafter ties and under the kitchen cabinets on dimmers and an operable skylight with a remote control was installed to allow more natural light into the kitchen.
The client was thrilled with the outcome. The open dining and living room space work perfectly for entertaining larger groups in their home and felt even larger with the vaulted ceiling and exposed rafter ties, and they had the home chef kitchen of their dreams with all their storage needs met. The final installation created a cohesive open floor plan with spaces that had distinct function, but also allowed for a flow of social interactions between them.
