This kitchen remodel combines the most appealing elements of rustic and modern aesthetics. Our clients had just purchased their home and moved in with their rambunctious and beloved dog, Peanut. They needed a new kitchen design better adapted to their lifestyle and more expressive of their personal styles.

As active members of their church community, the couple often invite large groups of people into their home. They wanted a welcoming, open kitchen space that would accommodate large groups comfortably, yet still feel like "home" without company. Honoring the clients' desire for warm tones of wood, expansive space, and a blend of both rustic and modern spirit, our designers created structural and visual solutions. The result is an extraordinary kitchen that accommodates the homeowners and their guests with comfort and imagination.

Master Design Gold Award for Kitchen

Previously, the dining area was separate from the kitchen in a small, dark room. The new design opened up this area and combined the dining room with the kitchen, creating a much more spacious environment.

The view from the new dining area, now fully integrated with the open kitchen, shows the back of the island, hand-crafted from planks of reclaimed Temecula wood.

The original entrance to the kitchen was a lackluster combination of white walls and old vinyl floors. Visitors to the home enter here first and what initially greeted them was uninspiring.

The new entrance to the kitchen is defined by expansive space and abundant light. Lines are clean and linear, balanced by the appealing warmth of natural wood.

Ample and efficient space was designed for prep, cooking, entertaining and cleaning. Personal touches, such as the hanging mug trees for the couple's growing collection, add character.

This kitchen's imaginative union of modern and rustic perspectives was achieved by blending natural elements with clean lines, neutral colors and an open floor plan. A whimsical chalkboard is a creative space for the wife to express her artistic side.
