There’s No Place Like Home

See below for one of our recent projects – a complete kitchen redesign and main floor remodel. Wineteer Construction experts were asked to suggest how to redesign an impractical island with 30”, 36” and 42” countertop heights to flow better with the daily activities of this busy family.
We redesigned the island, but also made more suggestions as to how the overall kitchen could function better. The ultimate goal of this remodel was to design an elegant look with a bit of a refined, yet rustic tone. The lack of functionality in the kitchen and general goals of the remodel meant we were looking at a complete kitchen and main floor redesign.
In order to complete these goals, we took to the kitchen first and added a single arch as opposed to three separate arches with center columns. We tripled the countertop space and cabinet storage to improve functionality, and we added reclaimed lumber beams to the roof to provide part of the rustic tone we were aiming for. To bolster this tone, we also created a wood tile backsplash from the older beams and added new flooring from reclaimed wood. A unique faux finish was also added to the walls, and a brand new front door lent to the space’s atmosphere with its artistic design. The finishing touch of the area was a fireplace mantle from old growth Red Wood. All elements were meant to be unique and interesting, yet not one element overpowering another.
This was a huge task, but the results were fantastic and we loved working on the project. Seeing our customer’s hopes and dreams for an enhanced living space realized is an amazing thing, and it’s one of the biggest reasons we do what we do. Take a look at some of the photos from the finished product below.
