The challenge was how to gain more space. The solution was to open the kitchen to the family room by removing the laundry in between and relocating it. The result was room enough to include an island with sink, dishwasher and seating.
By removing the soffit, taller wall cabinets could be installed to add to the storage capacity. A small raised bar separates the kitchen from family room with a bar sink and ice maker. Deep cove moulding was installed above the cabinets to the ceiling. Cherry cabinets by Schrock in a deep chocolate stain were selected in a simple Craftsman style and contrasted with lighter Silestone countertops in Ivory Coast. Stainless appliances from Bosch and Miele were chosen for their quality and features.
The homeowners are very pleased with the results. “After a previous nightmare experience with remodeling, CSI was truly a professional experience. They provided me with a timeline and budget and stuck to both,” says Mike, “They made living through a renovation as convenient as possible. All of their workers were courteous and respectful.”
