Project Title
Contemporary Kitchen Island Design
Project Description
We purchased a 1980's home, have remodeled every single room except the kitchen. We are now ready to gut the kitchen and "start over" but have no idea of an efficient and workable design.

Kitchen is awful! House built in 80's. Cabinets are too small and short.
Everything has to go including floors except appliances. Needs space planning. Don't need to knock out walls. Pillar she doesn't like. Flow is very important

Desk area needs to come out. Figure a way to have desk area for husband but not be in middle of kitchen. Built in china cabinet would be nice. Dining space. Needs a table for 2-4 people then expand to 8-10.

Home is white lime stone. Flooring is travertine. They like dark wood cabinets for the bathroom. No painted cabinets. Neutral with splash of color

Empty nesters. Then 8 or 10 around when family shows up.
2 dogs one large and one small.

Would like to start to demo in middle of sept.

Additional comments to designers
We are “scrubbing” the existing kitchen, and really starting from scratch, so really anything goes!!



Coffee station – perhaps a hidden coffee station?

Built in looking china cabinet –

Small “desk” area for husband to put his computer for morning email work – but not with his back to the living room

There are two of us living here, but we often have 8-10 for a meal……and would love to be able to seat everyone IN the dining area at an expanding table of some sort? But it’s a small area, so a HUGE table won’t work for the normal day to day operations of our kitchen

We will be removing the “furr down” above the kitchen cabinets to allow for larger/taller cabinets

My husband does NOT want cabinets that are “painted” but rather he prefers “stained”

An easy “traffic flow” – right now between the fridge and the “bar/island” is tight! And the “desk” area sticks out into the walkway

Mail, phone chargers, Kleenex box, etc. “cluttery”???

We do use the toaster a lot, so it needs to stay out – we have a kitchenaid mixer I’d like to have room for (right now it’s hidden away)

We do have two dogs, one big (55 lbs.) and one small (about 15 lbs)

The appliances are new (2 years old) so planning on keeping them unless design makes it impossible to do so

My husband HATES the oven being so low to the ground!!

Kitchen:

No paint colors were discussed. Feel free to reach out for suggestions when your construction is complete.

N/A

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish
