It was such a blast working on this kitchen renovation. This was one of those designs that COMPLETELY changed the space from a drab 1970’s eye sore to fresh and up to date modernized kitchen. Below are the after pics from today’s episode of House Hunters Renovation.
When I first walked into this space I knew right away that something with the layout needed to change. It was as if there were a huge block in the middle of the room stopping this kitchen from its full potential. And then it hit me…. Open up the entire kitchen by eliminating the peninsula and get double the space!!
So that’s exactly how I designed the kitchen. I also used the hallway closet space to recess the kitchen pantry and refrigerator. This was a huge factor in allowing all that open space to breath.
Next was the color palette and it truly started off by the amazing glass tile backsplash. It has so much variation in color, sparkle, metallic hues, and wow factor. In terms of the cabinetry, I already knew that the clients Ani and Allen really wanted a light color in their kitchen. So I chose a clean and crisp bright white to allow the other materials to shine! I even designed the countertops with a bright white quartz so that it didn’t chop up the kitchen.
One of the most exciting details in the kitchen is the use of the brushed bronze finish in the pendant light, wall sconces, and door handles. It’s an unexpected change to the basic nickel finish which so many people use, and it adds a very unique and elegant touch.
So after tons of hard work and energy Ani and Allen get to enjoy their wonderful new and contemporary kitchen.

I know we how much everyone loves a before and after story, so here is a great one!
We recently finished a kitchen renovation in Redondo Beach, CA and what a transformation it was! We used the existing kitchen space AND dining room of a typical beach track home and combined the two spaces to create one huge kitchen! I selected gorgeous two tone custom glazed cabinets and by installing faux beams in the ceiling, and an island that was almost as big as a ping pong table, this kitchen became the perfect place for entertaining large crowds. It was over 8′ long and over 4′ wide. Check out the before and after of this amazing reno!
The floor plans below show how the space looked before – a small kitchen and dining space – and how we re-configured the two rooms to create the fabulous kitchen it is now. By removing the wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room, it allowed us to create a more spacious kitchen with more storage and counter space. We were also able to use bigger and better appliances (Viking) since the kitchen nearly doubled in size. It was a lot of work and a lot of engineering, but well worth it!
Last Sunday HGTV aired a new episode of “House Hunters Renovation” that I was so honored to work on!! It was an absolute pleasure working with the HGTV team and of course the wonderful homeowners, Bill and Meredith, on this kitchen renovation! You guys all made it such a blast and I will always remember how great the experience was!
For some of you looking for a few snap shots, take a look below for a couple before and after images of the kitchen renovation…
This kitchen needed some major color and updating! After getting an idea of what Bill and Meredith were looking for in their kitchen… I had a plan! Below is the sketch for my concept on the kitchen design.
By choosing warmer color tones in walnut and grey, the kitchen came to life. Adding a colorful glass and slate back splash tile gave a contemporary touch especially since I decided to install it vertically instead of horizontal!! Matched with the quartz counter tops for the island and main kitchen, along with industrial details like the reclaimed wood mirror and swivel bar stools, this kitchen got its masculine vibe. And who could forget the beautiful accent wallpaper in the dining area that tied the theme together!
We searched for products that had an industrial edge but also a natural element to them. Thanks to the vendors below we were able to achieve our goal: Here are just some of the vendors….West Elm, CB2, Target, Crate & Barrel, World Market, Home Decorators, Astek Wallcovering, The Shade Store, BEHR and Amarock.
