The term “full-gut kitchen remodel” tends to make people think of an expansive, high-end kitchen with all the bells and whistles – where surrounding walls have been knocked out to create an open floor plan, the luxury countertops are never-ending, and the shiny, new appliances are massive in size, all contributing to a show-stopping completed project. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the idea of an over-the-top large kitchen remodel, only a small fraction of our clients actually have this experience. Every project is different when it comes to the size of the kitchen, it’s starting condition, the client’s aspirations for the space, and of course, the budget. More often than not, the kitchen remodels we complete are done in small or medium-sized kitchens where the clients are trying to update the aesthetic, but also make the most of the existing space. Sometimes, due to the structure of the home and other limitations, it’s simply not realistic to remove walls or install large appliances. However, just because you have a small kitchen doesn’t mean it can’t be remodeled into the beautiful kitchen of your dreams!
Our most recent kitchen remodel involved updating a 1990’s kitchen in Hurst, Texas, with a modern, stylish design. The original shape of the kitchen was closed off by a penisula cabinet, wasn’t a large space to begin with, and wasted a lot of space with the pantry closet. Our designers were able to make some simple changes to open up the space, increase the counter top area and improve storage space to maximize the usability of the kitchen as a whole. The end result is a sleek, eye-catching kitchen with a smart design and improved functionality!
