  • 2012 Kitchen of the Year Ranch & Coast Magazine

PROJECT SUMMARY:

After visiting an open house in their neighborhood showcasing a whole home remodel by Jackson Design and Remodeling, this couple was inspired to work with us to remodel the kitchen in their new home. As enthusiastic members of a local wine club, the homeowners love to entertain. They wanted their kitchen to be a central gathering point in their home - a sophisticated, yet unpretentious space for welcoming fellow oenophiles.

The most challenging aspect of this remodel was the room's very unusual configuration and positioning. The designers developed not just cosmetic changes, but a dramatically different layout and point of view. The new kitchen design takes full advantage of the home's spectacular views while also embracing the clients' lifestyle by creating an open floor plan with welcoming bar island seating. The homeowners now welcome guests into a brilliantly re-imagined new space filled with light and warmth.

The original kitchen featured an odd layout with an unusual configuration of space. The room was dark, outdated and visually out of tune with the rest of the home.

The new kitchen was created with a significant level of space design changes to present a more welcoming layout and smarter strategic use of the area. A dramatically oversized island and bar welcomes guests.

The new kitchen design unites the room with the rest of the home and changes the kitchen's point of view to take advantage of beautiful views from the living area.

The original window treatment near the cabinetry was outdated and let little light into the space.

A new horizontal window makes a dramatic difference in light infusion and creates a more modern, clean and appealing presence, while also providing privacy from neighbors.

The oversized Zephyr hood by Cheng Design becomes an intriguing sculptural element in the kitchen, framed by ambient lighting against a backdrop of glass tile.

A wine refrigerator built in to the island is conveniently and subtly positioned for homeowners who frequently welcome fellow wine enthusiasts into their home.

A sink specially designed to accommodate bar serving is just one of the details that makes this an ideal kitchen for entertaining.

The island bar seating area, created from an extra thick mother of pearl granite, is punctuated by a medley of artistic hand-blown glass pendants custom made for the clients.
