Before and After

  1. Home
  2. Before and After


Designer: Caitlin Machado



“The design process of this remodel was to take two separate areas in the home and consolidate into one large space. The division where a closet and laundry was located broke up the space so we decided to break down the walls and just take a portion of the kitchen and turn it into a laundry/storage space. When implementing this new design we were able to create a large kitchen with an island and also make a boot bench to carry the kitchen cabinetry aesthetic coming in and out of the deck area.”

This kitchen is the heart and hub of a busy family home, and so our goal was to bring the existing dark, traditional kitchen up to date, by adding light, great storage and functionality.  We opened up a wall between the kitchen and dining room to provide much more space and flow.  For this family and many of our clients,  a large, open kitchen & dining space serves better than a small kitchen and separate formal dining room. The balance of the clean white perimeter cabinets, and the rich blue on the island provide contrast and brighten up the space.  Low maintenance, white marble style quartz countertops were selected, that don’t need to be sealed and won’t stain, for easy care with lots of every day use.  To take advantage of the high ceilings, we added stacked wall cabinets with glass fronts at the top, which are lit from within and add a beautiful glow to light the room.”

“The main goal of this project was to lighten up the space with a painted cabinets and add more counter space. The oven was moved to allow for more counter space to the right of the sink. We added more storage with a pantry and extra cabinets at the end of the kitchen for a coffee area. “

“The design intent was to bring character to the space with a transitional style.  We elaborated the existing aesthetic by implementing up to date light and bright finishes at the cabinets, countertops, and tile.  We paired these elements with the natural wood seen in the flooring, staircase details, chiseled beams, and floating shelves, all bringing warmth to the space.  A classic style that will withstand time.”
