Kathy is a long-time Mission Viejo resident, and she has also worked with Alex and APlus in the past. When she was able to purchase and move to her new home, she again contracted Alex for the redesign which included a full kitchen remodel, as well as the master bathroom, two other additional bathrooms, the conversion of a bedroom into a home office, a new fireplace, and a new laundry room.

In the previous design, the kitchen felt cramped, so APlus removed the wall that separated the kitchen and living area, giving Kathy an open-concept layout. It was then transformed into a functional U-shape design.

Some of the kitchen design elements include crown molding, sophisticated custom cabinets, and built-in features to house the high-end stainless steel appliances. There are gray granite countertops in the kitchen as well. A similar traditional aesthetic was carried into the rest of the home.
