Project Details

Buck Lake Kitchen Remodel 

These homeowners REALLY use their kitchen. They love to bake and host parties, so designing this space to increase the accessibility and functionality was our main goal. We spent a good amount of time in design planning out exactly where every kitchen item was going to be placed.

We also added a custom doggy gate to this project. These clients section their dogs off in their kitchen when they leave home and wanted a cuter way to do so. We love incorporating our furry friends into our designs and we think this one turned out really well. 

Something that made a huge difference in this kitchen re-design was taking out the wall in between the living room and the kitchen. It added additional seating at the peninsula and created a space with a flow perfect for entertaining.

Project Costs

Good Better Best Budget: $51,306

Final Contract Price:  $57,931

During the design phase these clients added a few features like the custom floating shelves that increased the project costs. The final contract price came in about $6,695 over our initial GBB budget.
