Breaking ground on his new dream home in Florida, this Floridian knew he wanted a modern masterpiece, with ultra-sleek, minimalist style. Kitchen designer, Victoria Hessler of Distinguished Kitchens & Baths of Boca Raton, FL, actualized his vision with Dura Supreme Cabinetry.
"This couple enjoys cooking together regularly, so they each wanted designated space for cooking and prepping," explained Lindsey Markel of Dillman & Upton, Rochester, MI. Understanding how the couple works together in the kitchen was the inspiration behind Markel's creation of two separate work zones.
Several decades back, in an era of not so great design, placing the hardware in the center of the cabinet doors was the “thing” to do. There’s nothing technically wrong with placing the hardware in the middle of the door, but it does date the kitchen.
It’s taken three years and we are finally finished with our remodeling projects.
The original plan for the upstairs remodel was to include a walk in closet directly off the bedroom. But when we realized that the structural things we would need to change were going to make the whole project cost prohibitive, that idea was scrapped.
One of the key design changes in the bathroom remodel was the addition of useable storage other than the vanity. Prior to the demolition there was a 12” base cabinet and a couple of awkwardly placed towel bars directly behind the shower wall. It was useless and unattractive as far as I was concerned.
Before and after photos document the start and finish of any project, the ultimate reminder of how far you’ve come, the validation that hopefully you’ve made an improvement.
After months of designing, planning and installation - my new Contemporary Craftsman inspired kitchen is finally complete! Overall the process of remodeling my kitchen has gone fairly smoothly.
As the bath remodeling progresses, the clock is ticking and I realize that I had better get the cabinetry ordered. Being a professional designer, designing for your own space is difficult enough, factor in a spouse that has some design preferences of his own and I’ve got a major project on my hands
