2012 NARI Capital CotY, Finalist Award Winner, Residential Kitchen Under $50,000

  • Colonial home in Fairfax Virginia was in a desperate need of kitchen remodeling
  • Busy household with couple kids running through grand central were not happy in this galley kitchen.
  • Kitchen was located between Family room and dining room and just connected with narrow doorways
  • The south side of the kitchen had double window and no way out to back deck
  • Vinyl floor and carpet in family room made the space feel separated
  • The 20’ wide bearing wall that separated the kitchen from family room was the first thing to go
  • Place a large structure beam without placing a middle column was one the main objectives that we accomplished
  • Closing the door in family room and convert it a window to create a symmetrical look on both sides of fireplace
  • Removing the windows in south side of kitchen, enlarging the header and converting it to a French door therefore a direct connection between kitchen and back deck
  • Relocating the sink and dishwasher into the new Island with much more storage and design to allow for seating around it
  • Added recess light, indirect lighting and pendent light over middle Island
  • Light color painted cabinetry with some glass front and complimenting granite counter top, upscale appliances are just few of amenities of this new kitchen
  • Relocating the stove and gas line and ventilation duct to west wall to have a better work triangle
  • Use large porcelain floor tile and hardwood flooring throughout to have a seamless connection
  • Now clients are getting to enjoy a much larger kitchen, better traffic flow, open floor plan and converse with guest and company in family room
