This page shows a South Eugene kitchen design and remodel project we recently completed for a couple who love to cook and entertain.
When Jim and Bonnie contacted Castile Kitchen & Bath they were ready for a complete overhaul of their kitchen. Their initial idea for this space was to create a peninsula kitchen, as the thought of removing walls to open the space hadn’t occurred to them. However, after going through Castile’s design process, the concept of the kitchen island was discussed as a solution to help them better achieve their goals. Bonnie loves to cook and entertain, so it was important to have a large workspace and easy access to every part of the kitchen.
As you can see this kitchen now open to the living space is inviting, well-lit, and has ample work space. The storage areas were substantially increased, resulting in plenty of countertop space. The center island was created extra deep, built on two sets of cabinets opening from either side of the island, providing even more storage along with a large area to work or entertain.
The lighting was optimized in this space by strategically placing small recessed lights in the ceiling. Under-cabinet lighting was used to light the work stations without adding glare. The center island, a challenge to light, as the island was built extra deep and the transition of the vaulted living room ceiling happening directly above. The solution, vertical wall pendant light standoff supports placed the pendants perfectly over the bar about a foot from the ceiling transition while adding an element of interest to the space.
The sleek stainless steel Brizo faucet system, pendant lights, and range hood beautifully matched the new stainless appliances. Notice how the warm color of the Hickory “Spice” cabinets perfectly contrast the darker “Cascade Tree Bark” flooring and the Quartz Caesarstone “Himalayan Moon” countertops. This remodel shows just how drastically the look and feel your kitchen can be transformed.
Jim and Bonnie were great clients to work with and had a lot of fun during the primary selection process.
