The 1950’s were known for lot of great things. Kitchen design wasn’t one of them! Most kitchens had the same look and feel. In a word: Bland
“The kitchen had brown cabinets up to the ceiling. It had black flocked wallpaper, and it had black and brown indoor/outdoor carpeting. So, immediately we stripped the wallpaper and painted it white. The room still was very dark it had a great big elephant in the middle of it called an island.”
So, after years of enduring a kitchen that just didn’t work from a design and function perspective, Harrell Remodeling was called in to help make much needed and long awaited changes.
The key to any collaborative and creative endeavor is working with the client and understanding their wants, needs and desires.
“She wanted it to be a dining room, where you happened to be able to prepare your meals rather than a kitchen that’s fancy. Once she told me in that way, the light bulb went on and I got what she was after.”
This concept provided some interesting challenges. For one, there are no upper cabinets for storage! Debra designed several innovative storage spaces under the counter top and two unique pantries to accommodate the client’s storage needs.
This kitchen remodel includes a large custom dining table, an island on wheels, under-counter refrigerator and freezers, a beautiful custom-sized La Cornue range and finally, a place for a TV and recliner — the client’s dream space!
“Working with Harrell as a team was absolutely incredible! Everything was immaculately fit together. It was a like a big puzzle and all the pieces just came together.”
