A 90’s Kitchen Gets a Sleek Transformation

Our recent clients had a beautiful 4,700 square-foot home in Keller, Texas. The spacious 1990’s house included a large kitchen, complete with an L-shaped bar for seating and a small center island. While the size of the kitchen itself was great, the layout was not ideal. The clients loved to cook as a family, so the existing footprint with the bar on the outside and the island in the middle made it difficult for multiple people to be in the kitchen at once. This resulted in a very congested, crowded workspace. The clients came to us not only wanting to resolve this issue, but also had hopes to modernize the kitchen’s dated appearance with an open-concept look. Read more

Should My New Stove be Gas or Electric?

A common question we get from clients when remodeling their kitchen is what type of stove they should get – gas or electric. What is the difference? Which one is better? Here are the basic differences between the two, and some pros and cons to help you decide which would be a better fit for you.

The Difference between Gas Stoves & Electric Stoves

Gas stoves use propane, butane, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas or other flammable gas as fuel to create a flame for cooking. The gas enters your stove from the main gas supply to your house and mixes with air. As that gas-air mixture is released through holes in the burner, the ignition system lights, creating a blue flame. As you turn the burner control knob, you control exactly how much gas reaches the burner. The higher you turn it, the more gas is released. Read more
