Step 3: Living through a remodel can prove challenging for homeowners, both physically and emotionally. A designer‘s ability to advise and provide support during the entire process eases the pressure on the client. As a point person, I aim to provide solutions for conflicts and mitigate questions that may occur during construction.

The construction process continues… It is a long and arduous process. Stripping the existing maple cabinetry and working with this species of wood to perfect the desired finish proves laborious for the painters. Maintaining a construction schedule is always a challenge. This project is no different and more time than expected is required. But ultimately, true artistry obtains the desired results.

Installation of the cast stone hood begins. Its travertine finish complements the stone floor. The soft curves and rope detailing in the hood shelf and stack reflected the details in the cabinetry and crown molding. Corbels extend to the counter and surround a stone mosaic backsplash.

The final touches are applied to the finishes: the tile is grouted; the crown of the hood is added; everything is sealed and the final trim pieces are applied.
Finally, the appliances, plumbing fixtures, lighting and electrical will be installed. Completion of construction is nearing. The homeowners eagerly anticipate moving into and enjoying their new kitchen. Final photos…
