Elegant Craftsman Remodel

Welcome to a rancher turned craftsman.

The poor, under-utilized and under-lit kitchen from the original vintage 1960 house needed a complete new life. What better way than to raise the roof, improve the layout, give additional cabinets and counters, dial-up the quality of light and give the family of four a new heart to their home.

Since the couple had a preference for Arts and Crafts, colors and textures were employed that evoked the craftsman period. Functionality for today’s lifestyle comes from the use of granite along with two colors of concrete countertops, glass tile backsplashes, halogen ambient and task lighting throughout (dropped 8 feet from the 16 foot high ceiling) and commercial chairs.

Local artists, such as the one who created the art glass door inserts provided a very personal feeling in a potentially technical kitchen space. Views and access to the rear patio and deck complete the transformation.
