Sometimes we get so caught up in just going through the motions we don’t take the time to absorb and enjoy our very own surroundings. This was the case for the homeowners who came to the AIM Kitchen & Bath design staff in Des Moines, IA.
The homeowner had been helping her sister house hunt and in the process was walking through a lot of homes. This is when she realized that her kitchen was way outdated and just didn’t feel very homey. She came to us, as we had helped with three bathroom projects in the past.
The kitchen had very poor flow and was dark with traditional oak cabinets, inadequate storage, and bad lighting.
One of the goals was to create a flow or continuity starting at the front entrance into the kitchen, dining room, and family room. This process involved removing three different flooring types-dining room carpet, kitchen tile, and entry hardwood. We added archways going into the family room and an arch above the kitchen window in order to create character and the hominess the homeowner was looking for. We had to move all of the outlets and switches up into the bottom side of the cabinetry so the uneven tile backsplash had uninterrupted lines.
Quality cabinetry was one the top of the homeowner’s list. We presented the Holiday Kitchens custom cabinet line as its quality is second to none. What really appealed to the homeowner were the flush furniture ends, door panel wainscoting on the island, soft close drawer guides, and the quality of the construction of the cabinetry.
