Kitchen Stories: Cross Country Remodel

Let’s say you live on the East Coast but plan on moving to the West Coast.  You have found the perfect property, but it needs some updating. How do you find a design firm that you can work with remotely?  The homeowners of this stunning kitchen found the answer on Houzz, selecting Bonnie Bagley Catlin of Signature Designs Kitchen & Bath in San Diego to oversee the design and remodel of the kitchen and family room in California while they were still living in Boston.Bonnie explained, “While there was nothing wrong with the original kitchen layout, the overall style was very traditional and the new homeowners were looking for a more transitional design”.

Bonnie suggested Dura Supreme’s Lynden door style in Cherry with Caraway stain, a rich brown gray that plays beautifully with the rest of the design selections.

With multiple storage accessories and a beverage center tucked around the corner this kitchen functions as beautifully as it looks.
