For many of our clients, updating a space for improved functionality is just as important (or even more important) than updating for aesthetics alone. This is particularly true when the homeowner is an avid cook who enjoys spending time in the kitchen. For our recent clients in North Arlington, creating a “cook’s dream kitchen” was the overall goal for the remodel. Both clients loved prepping, cooking, and hosting dinners; they knew early on in the year that they wanted to host Thanksgiving 2022 at their home. Unfortunately, their existing kitchen wasn’t quite suitable for the occasion. It lacked the amount of counter space and storage they desired, and the appliances did not meet their needs in regard to functionality. They met with our designers to discuss the pain-points and explore how the kitchen could be redesigned. Our team came up with a number of ways to improve the features of the space within the existing footprint in order to give the clients what they wanted.
