As a professional kitchen remodel and design company, we have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients and spaces. When working with small kitchen spaces or inefficient layouts, our goal is to expand the visual and physical space by creating smart design layouts and efficient storage solutions.

Here are two projects that highlight these incredible transformations that work to maximize the efficiency and storage space of these kitchens!

Kitchen Remodel Project 1:

In this particular kitchen, with the existing layout, we had an incredible opportunity to maximize and optimize the space.

As pictured above, some immediate issues we noticed were that the kitchen had a peninsula that enclosed the area limiting the use of the space. The cabinets framed above the peninsula obstructed the view of the kitchen – both needed to go!

The pantry (pictured below) was located at the end of the kitchen and was protruding into the family room. The solution – moving the pantry next to the refrigerator wall – it made such a difference!

The fully remodeled kitchen area is now what we know as an “open space.” Ultimately, the client didn’t lose any storage and was able to gain a great deal of much-needed walking space.

The scope of this project also included removing modular home panels in the kitchen and popcorn ceiling, drywalled, textured the kitchen and painted the whole house. The entire project took five weeks to complete.

Most of our kitchen remodels involve removing a peninsula, and in most cases installing a new island which typically allows for the same amount storage and improves kitchen access. Also, removing non-load-bearing walls is a big part of kitchen remodels that will allow you to maximize your space while achieving a stunning look!

This project included the following materials:

Project II

In this kitchen remodeling project, we kept the peninsula leaving the existing cabinet layout which was a cost-effective option for the client.

We did remove the wall and doorway to open up the space, and also removed the soffits in order to expose the beautiful bolted ceilings in the house – it made a wonderful improvement.

We were able to expand the countertop space in the peninsula allowing us to accommodate a seating area in the back of it.

The kitchen now connects with the living room which makes the space look so much bigger. The end result was outstanding, and needless to say, the client as thrilled!
