Before the kitchen had just one window (which was still in good condition so donated). Additionally, to the right of the window, you’ll notice a lighter brick which is where a door once was. Just below that, a concrete step interrupted the patio space.

A new bump-out that feels original to the home. After construction, the pergola is reconstructed to accommodate the new structure. It was important to the homeowner that the pergola remained.

Spacious & Bright

An inviting and symmetrical kitchen design that is pleasing to the eye.

Symmetry can be a great design principle to apply in a kitchen as it can create a sense of order and balance. A mix of cabinetry adds visual interest (plus the glass cabinet doors give the homeowner more space to show off vintage treasures). Centering the space is a lovely green light fixture that used to be above the stairway. Now it is on display for everyone to love.

Improved Flow & Design Continuity

kitchen bump up, cabinets, storage

Accessible storage and microwave at an easy-to-reach height.

With custom cabinetry, you can tailor your kitchen cabinets to your exact needs and preferences. To maximize the kitchen’s space are cabinets to fit the layout and needs of the homeowner. We love to make use of every nook and cranny. For example, to the left of the refrigerator, are pantry doors with pull-out shelving. In addition, the microwave is set at the perfect height so it is accessible.
