A Place for Family

With plenty of grandchildren, this couple wanted their kitchen to be the main gathering place for the family. Beyond tearing down the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room, our team installed a built-in bench for a large dining table. Not only was this bench perfect for the grandchildren, but it added a new level of storage with drawers in the lower compartment. This, paired with a larger island created plenty of seating. 

Apart from wanting a wide array of pullout accessories, these clients had one very specific request: a place to install a television. They wanted to be able to watch cooking shows, sports, or their favorite show while they prepped their meals.

“Our experience with the team at OHi was fantastic! They provided a level of professionalism that is rare in today's home improvement contractor world. Their design team (Teri and Tammy) spent time with us to understand our tastes and requirements - then put together a beautiful plan that we were able to flesh out with countertops, tile, and fixtures chosen directly from their showroom. Their project team, lead by project manager Jeff and our primary craftsmen, Tom and Chris, started the very complex project when promised and completed it in 7 weeks. They were a very proactive team and continuously identified ways to improve the project - going above and beyond our expectations. We came in on-time and on-budget! Highly recommended!”

How Much Will Your Kitchen Cost to Remodel?

Find Out

The Kitchen

Before: With yellow painted walls, and a fruit patterned trim, this kitchen was loud and bright. The cabinets were truncated by soffits. The countertops were dated and the appliances were mismatched. The only light source was a single light in the middle of the ceiling. 

After: The soffits are removed and the new, white cabinets extend to the ceiling. The walls are painted a neutral color that pairs nicely with the multi-color teardrop backsplash that adds warmth and dimension. Can lights are added throughout the room to create even, helpful lighting everywhere. New, quartz countertops are installed along with new tile floors.

The Dining Area

Before: The white refrigerator was overly large and distracted from the overall design since it didn't match the stainless steel range. The drop off zone had lower cabinets and the upper cabinets were limited by the soffits. 

After: The upper cabinets extend to the ceiling after the soffits are removed and the lower cabinet storage is improved with the installation of lower drawers. The new fridge is properly sized and the finish matches the rest of the appliances.
