Traditional Style Design Build Kitchen Remodel in Irvine Orange County
In this Irvine home remodel, we transformed a ho-hum kitchen into one of functional luxury. Our general contracting experts used their skills in both construction and interior design to create a space with maximum storage and style. Read on to discover how we made it possible.
Before our team was called in, this kitchen was dated and bland. Ancient patterned wallpaper clashed with the sterile white tile countertops, and there simply wasn’t enough room for storing all of the client’s dishes and ingredients. This led to cluttered countertops and messy cabinets that were tedious to go through. Furthermore, the space was tightly walled-in, and was un-hospitably separated from the dining room. Our main goal was to use this renovation to make the kitchen a much more pleasant place for the homeowner to spend time in, and functional enough to make cooking and entertaining a breeze.
Our first task in revamping this kitchen was to take down the oppressive wall that separated it from the dining room. To create an open feel without losing cabinet or counter space, we opted for a bar-style cutout that provided a clear view into the dining area. Custom Montebello style cabinets in African Mahogany were installed, instantly upgrading the kitchen’s level of sophistication. Dark knobs and handles by Rhodes keep the look sleek and sumptuous.
These handsome cabinets wrap all the way around the kitchen, and even form the base of the new large island in the center. To solve the client’s storage problem, we got creative. Cleverly placed drawers and shelves were installed within the cabinets to take advantage of every nook and cranny.
The countertops were made from rustic Cambria Linconshire material, with double-layered round beveled edges for refinement. Behind the sink and stovetop areas, an understated backsplash of earth-toned Durango Travertine tiles adds an unexpected level of detail to the kitchen’s new look.
The appliances were chosen to blend in well, rather than take center stage. This allows for the gorgeous texture of the dark wooden cabinets to be the primary focus. In fact, the new GE Profile Counter-Depth 23.3 cu. ft. Refrigerator was faced with the same wood paneling, making it a natural part of the kitchen’s aesthetic flow. Near the entryway of the kitchen, a stainless steel Double Combination Oven from the Masterpiece Series is nestled conveniently next to an area of open countertop. Another piece from the Masterpiece Series, a Deluxe Glass Cooktop, overlooks the dining room to allow for friendly conversation with guests while cooking. A Blanco Diamond double-bowl sink was installed in front of the window, and to its left, a Thermador Washing Machine is also paneled with the same cabinet wood.
