Initial meeting with Becky & Eric S of Olmsted Falls, Ohio for their kitchen remodel resulted in seeing a separate kitchen and dining room both of which were approximately 10×10 in size with a load-bearing wall separating the two rooms. Stylized from the 70’s these two small rooms were in need of a major facelift. We removed the load-bearing wall, replaced one window a more energy efficient double hung with argon and low e ratings and then completely removed another to allow for the expansion of the kitchen. The inspiration piece for the project was the homeowners’ dining room table and chairs, which had been in the family for generations. Dark engineered hardwood flooring was chosen as a compliment to the table; cabinets were decided on as a contrast to the flooring and granite counter tops. We added a dry bar area to right of the refrigerator to allow for separate food and drink prep areas. This area was complete with stemware holder and wine rack. Glass prepped doors in the wall cabinets, which flanked the microwave, a pot filler above the stove, and under cabinet lighting rounded out this project. The results of this project gave the client the large room for entertaining which they do on a regular basis.
