While the homeowners loved their neighborhood, with downtown Oakley within walking distance, they didn't love their kitchen. It was small, enclosed, and very lacking in both storage and character.
We suggested to the contractor to open things up to both the dining room and family room, which required some major structural changes and precise construction techniques.
We also suggested opening the non bearing wall from the front.
This created views from the front door all the way to the rear family room, something the homeowner really appreciated for it greatly increased the feeling of openness for the entire first floor.
In order to achieve the character piece, we decided on inset cabinets with simple flat panel doors and slab drawers.
We decided on a distressed walnut top, finished with OSMO Poly-x natural oil, to preserve warmth and texture.
In order to maximize storage, we took advantage of small spaces by adding in-cabinet accessories.
In the end, our team was able to deliver to the clients exactly what they envisioned: a kitchen that they loved.
