These clients weren’t going to let their locked-in budget stand in the way of their dream kitchen. They worked closely with their relationship manager and designer to choose the perfect layout for their forever kitchen while also making meticulous selections that had a high quality look at a more affordable price. Due to their restriction, the appliances had to stay in their respective locations and most of the design work went into replacing countertops, cabinets, and backsplashes. However, our team still had to figure out how to create an open layout from the previously boxed in kitchen. Any major demo would cause structural issues that weren’t in their budget to address. After a lot of thought, our team configured a layout that allowed the wall to be knocked down. The solution came in the form of two columns mounted into the island that created the structural support necessary while still opening the room up.
