Primary Bath Remodel, Temecula, CA

Challenge: Create a larger Bathroom leaving as much of the existing plumbing in place. The tub and small shower was combined into one large shower with two sets of controls. The window over the tub was replaced by a 15" high fixed panel window installed the full width of the shower. One of the doors into the Closet was sealed so the sinks separated with more counter space. The door into the WC was widened and the toilet remained in the same location.

Challenge: Design space with larger refrigerator and range, provide two sinks and seating for four. Turning the island 90 degrees helped to achieve the look and feel they wanted. Porcelain checkerboard flooring runs down hallway, into dining area to front door. Cabinets are from Omega- Alder wood with Gunny finish, countertops are Silestone Eternal Calcatta Gold with Suede finish, backsplash is herringbone patterned marble. Appliances: Thermador Range, Thermador Refrigerator and Freezer Columns, Miele Microwave, dual Kitcheaid Dishwashers, Kohler sinks and faucets. Before photos are shown along with the Sketchup design and photorealistic rendering.

Kitchen Remodel Temecula, CA

Challenge: Make use of the entire living space. The doorway was sealed between the storage area and hallway. The space was  turned into a large pantry with a pocket door. The new Kitchen footprint is larger but still leaves ample space for four seated diners at the peninsula. The Dining Room was moved from the front of the house leaving a spacious Living Room. Another sink and seated prep area were added to create a smaller work triangle.

Challenge: Redesign Kitchen to better integrate with the adjacent Family Room. A pony wall and non-structural wall was removed that divided the two rooms. The corner Pantry was relocated leaving a wider overall space to add a larger, more functional island. An archway was added from the hall into the Kitchen to match other existing architectural details.
