The Kitchen Remodel, Lakewood, Ohio – Client owns an up and down two unit aged building. Came to us seeking a complete facelift to the outdated and deteriorating kitchen, basement and bath areas. The main floor was closed off with extremely small separate rooms in the home, the client wanted to open the space up to make it more functional. This included knocking down several load-bearing walls, refinishing the deteriorated hardwood floors which had been locked away under 20-year-old carpeting in the living and dining rooms and then replacing outdated rolled vinyl floor in the kitchen with a luxury vinyl plank with ridged core technology and providing a clean white finish in the kitchen. One of the major obstacles in this project included finding unexpected ductwork in one of the load-bearing walls. This needed to be relocated and inspected to continue the project. With LVL flush beams added for structural integrity and rock wool placed in the ceiling to deaden sound between units, the living & dining spaces were reworked for the client. The kitchen nook space was opened up and redesigned to create more space for cabinetry and storage. The outdated appliances were replaced with stainless steel ones. This design features a small broom closet built into the studs of the wall, white shaker cabinets and white Dekton counters for a bright new and timeless finish. The client also wanted a simple finish to the basement. With some carpet, paint and stack stone the basement was given a clean face. The bathroom in the basement went from an open area in the utility room of the basement to a fully functional and stylized bathroom adding another shower to the unit. At the completion of the project the clients began discussions with us to rework the unit above in similar style and magnitude.
