Kitchen  Remodel

Family Gatherings A New Kitchen

Designed by Capitol Kitchens and Baths Designer Adrienne 

The Gathering Place for Making Memories 
With the holidays on the horizon, homeowners Mary and Tom Horgan started to make plans for family gatherings and opening their home to celebrate the season together.  They had a relatively small kitchen compared to the size of the rest of the home. But they viewed the kitchen as the central gathering place for guests. They wanted to make space feel larger and have better storage.
Adrienne updated the existing space to maximize storage. With contractor Eric Petroski, they opened up the pass-through into the living room — shifted the faucet to the side to make for a more usable serving counter and extended the overhang on the peninsula for more working space as well as seating.
The cabinet style and finish were selected to coordinate with a hutch that is opposite the kitchen.
After:  An open space for family gatherings.

Before:  Plumbing pipes run throught the kitchen.

Deigner Touch

The homeowners wanted to extend the cabinets to the ceiling but there was a plumbing drain line that we could not relocate. Adrienne came up with a way to box in the plumbing and customize the cabinets on site in order to have taller cabinets. She came up with a wood crown soffit and tied everything together with some custom made floating wood shelves.

After:  Custom trim, designed by Adrienne,  makes the cabinets look taller.
