Project Description (Problem/Solution/Results)

This inefficient, traditional u-shaped kitchen layout was designed for one primary cook and came with its problems—primarily due to its small size. Not only did it lack space for a table and chairs, it also lacked sufficient storage and counter space.

As a solution, this deluxe Lafayette kitchen remodel was redesigned into a galley floor plan with custom cabinetry that reached the ceiling rather than being topped by a soffit.

Demolition included tearing down a pony wall and a countertop that divided the kitchen from the family and dining rooms—resulting in a casual living space open to the kitchen. Further demolition involved removing the pocket window over the sink, as well as an existing pantry. Riverside Construction also shifted a set of sunroom doors to make room for a new wall of cabinets.

The newly remodeled space produced a gorgeous center island large enough to seat five and house a new Frigidaire gallery dishwasher and an Undermount stainless steel sink. Surrounding the island are two banks of beautiful Wellborn Select Bedford Square style cabinets in Maple with a Sienna stain. The contrasting backsplash behind the range and coffee nook is finished in a 12 x 22 Impero glazed porcelain tile.

Two eye-catching Kichler island pendants were added above the central island to soften the space, and a complementary Kichler six-light pewter chandelier was positioned over the dining area to complete the look.
