1990s Whole House Transformation

From 1990s Dated to 2020 Renovated

The client initially contacted us because the Master Bathroom needed to be repaired, and from there the project transformed into a whole house remodel, fulfilling a dream the homeowners had since moving into the house 17 years ago. The entire house was filled with wallpaper, and the cabinets were built at a larger 42" height for taller homeowners (you'll want to check out the Before & Afters at the end of the slideshow). When approaching the remodel, the client asked our Designer to create a couple of material options to present to her for each area of the house; Kitchen, Master Bathroom, and Utility Room. Through design meetings, the Designer and the Homeowner collaborated to create these beautiful selections that have completely transformed the look of the house.

Project Details

Cabinet Bump Out

We added depth to these separate counter space areas by building the middle cabinet deeper than the surrounding cabinets. The bump-out is highlighted by the textured glass doors.

Pot/Pan Storage

Our client was ecstatic about these two deep drawers under her cooktop. They're perfect for storing pots and pans in an easily accessible reach, making cooking streamlined.

Knocking Down the Wall to a Half Wall

There was a wall that separated the Living Room from the Kitchen, and it made the large Kitchen space feel awkward. We changed the wall to a half wall to connect the spaces and best fit the footprint proportions.

Changing the Direction of the Island

The original Kitchen had the island running perpendicular to the center wall and our Designer and Superintendent noticed that the client could have the same larger-sized island, but better fill the room and create a better circulation path if the island was turned parallel to the new half wall.

Stunning Material Choices

Recognize this countertop on any of our other projects? Summerhill, Quartz Countertop from Cambria, was also used in our Passive House project! We love how different cabinet colors/materials can make the same countertop look so unique to the Kitchen.

What our Clients are Saying

“We had a full kitchen remodel and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Sarah, our designer, did a beautiful job of incorporating our wishes into the design, while ensuring that the design fit with the rest of the house. All of the employees, as well as the subcontractors they chose, were professional and wonderful to have in our home. The cabinet makers were meticulous about every detail in the cabinets and trim. G. Christianson Construction was responsive to every question and concern we had during the entire process. We love the results!”
