Makeover of the Month–April 2012
To fulfill a request for a large space capable of feeding and entertaining friends and family, Innovative Construction put together a special recipe for this kitchen remodel. Redefining the space, the team had to remove several walls, one of which contained the main electrical cables, which had to be relocated. In place of the walls, strong LVL-and-steel beams were added, including one, which had to be disguised with a soffit and crown so it would blend in better.
Next, handcrafted custom cabinetry built in-house and outfitted with stained glass to match a large window in the foyer was installed, filling out the space.
Exotic granite countertops cover each workspace, with the slab on the wet bar being carefully cut so that the pattern of the stone continues onto the backsplash.BeforeAfter
The homeowners wanted to minimize the appearance of electrical outlets, so the remodeler installed them on the underside of upper cabinets and in hidden flip-down doors on the island.
“This job was very detailed and exacting, but it was extremely rewarding,” says Clark Harris, owner of Innovative Construction.
