We demolished the tall pony wall that divided the kitchen from the dining room area and in doing so we opened up a site line to create much more space.

Another huge improvement was the removal of a beam. The homeowners had lived with it for years under the impression that it was structural, however after a little investigation, we learned that it was not load bearing and so out it came. A huge visual improvement is seen in the Before & After Kitchen Remodel photos.

Our new concept rendering for a beautiful Manhattan Beach kitchen which features a well balanced, masculine and feminine design approach. The rich grey, honed, American Mist countertops are set atop both white cabinets and contrasting a contrasting wood grain island. The backsplash will be Calacutta Paonazzo white marble slab and will add a polished elegance to the mix.

Along with luxurious new white oak flooring, new paint and installation of wainscot paneling, we also designed and built a new custom island and extended the main wall of kitchen cupboards into the bay window. A perfect place for a gorgeous farmhouse sink!

Sticking to my favorite rule of kitchen design, we brought in the light! We added recessed cans over the functional sink areas, under cabinet lights were added to enhance the glow of the white Italian marble, pendants from Visual Comfort are for eye candy and ambiance over the island and finally, we custom designed a gorgeous hexagon art glass window for a steam of natural light and magic!

New island makes room for an extra sink and loads of built-in storage. Contrast drawers at main kitchen wall add to the impact statement that the art glass window creates.

I’m Kamaren and just like Sherlock Holmes I solve cases. Instead of crime, it’s interior design. Creating beautiful well edited living spaces is what I do best and I LOVE seeing concepts turn to reality. I blog to share my work, fabulous finds, and the things I am passionate about that make me happy and fulfilled. Please explore, enjoy and connect with me.
