68 – Mission Viejo – Complete Kitchen, Bath, Bar Remodel with brand new custom cabinets


Impressed with the superior quality of our custom cabinets, a family in Mission Viejo wanted APlus to handle the transformation of their old oak kitchen. They wanted to maintain a traditional look, but sought to upgrade their kitchen’s style with a blend of rustic and refined elements. So our designers worked up a concept for a beautiful G-shaped kitchen, one that provided ample space for preparing family-sized meals and socializing with guests at the same time. We built the new custom cabinets in a hazelnut brown finish with visible wood grain. They were accented with dark bronze hardware. In the connecting section above the double-bowl undermount sink, we put in open shelving for the display of decorative food jars. On the side of the fridge, we augmented the casing with a small pantry that offers multiple levels of shelving, and on the outer side facing the living room, we put in concealed cabinet doors to keep the look streamlined and non-distracting. Other custom additions to the cabinetry include a pull-out trash drawer, fold-out corner doors, lazy suzans, and built-in utensil organizers. Where the old cabinets hung over and obstructed the view into the living room, now only the large cooking range rests upon warm-toned gray granite countertops with multi-layered beveled edges. The counter curves at the ledge of the breakfast bar, and extends back to the edge of the deep bay window. A backsplash of tan stone tiles in a diamond pattern decks the walls, adding texture and further warmth.

In the dining area we also built a section of cabinetry, with its own countertop and backsplash in the same materials. A personal bar was constructed, with a countertop ledge placed upon a half-height wall partition, as well as the small wet bar cabinet we built beneath rows of glass shelves. For the bathroom, our team put much effort into re-tiling the floors with graceful stone in a neutral hue, extending it into the shower, which has darker accent tiling, a built-in bench, and a glass enclosure. Here we also built a custom vanity out of the same materials as those found in the kitchen. If you too are impressed with the work of APlus, contact us today for a free quote!
