63 – Aliso Viejo – Complete Kitchen Remodel with brand new custom cabinets
In the hilly town of Aliso Viejo, we were tasked with the renovation of a home’s plain kitchen. It lacked counter space and efficient storage options, making it difficult for the owners to easily manage the daily duties of cooking. They asked us to revive the room with not only more practical solutions, but also a brighter atmosphere and a design that oozed everyday refinement. Our first steps were in restructuring the kitchen. We removed all of the old construction, and also took out the corner pantry to make room for wraparound cabinets and a counter. The chosen design was that of a traditional U-shaped kitchen, with porcelain white as its main hue, and buttery-toned accents on the walls. The key to brightening the kitchen was in the new classically styled custom cabinets with stainless steel hardware and thick crown moulding. Some of the cabinet doors are inset with clear glass panels, lending some visual airiness. We built a large custom hood over the stove, with stately moulding and built-in spice-pulls. Within, a zig-zagging backsplash of glossy white rectangular tiles adds extra polish to the kitchen. Our contractors also placed a long connecting piece over the window above the double-bowl farmhouse sink, framing the space and showing an attention to detail that makes the kitchen shine. Half of the center island is built for storage, while the rest is left open with posts to make legroom for possible seating. Farther along by the dining space, we built a hutch-style china cabinet, with glass-paneled doors and white wood paneling behind the countertop.
We also worked on elements in the home’s living room. Within a diagonal corner wall, we built an entertainment center with the same materials used for the kitchen cabinetry, save for the black countertop that adds a hint of contrast. Next to the door to the backyard, a tall and narrow cabinet contains numerous storage compartments. The crown moulding seen in the kitchen was extended through the entire living room as well.
