Mid-Century Ranch Kitchen Remodel
Kitchen & Wall Removal
This Mid-Century Ranch Kitchen Remodel is located in a great neighborhood in north central Phoenix off Central and Northern. It’s owners love it for its convenient location and large yard. It’s biggest challenge was that the kitchen area was partitioned off into several small areas. All of these rooms were separated from the homes ample living room.
Our homeowners wanted to open up the space and create a more modern style kitchen that would work for both every-day and for entertaining.
The room had several load bearing walls to restructure before we could open the space up to reveal their new open kitchen space.
We chose classic shaker style cabinets that lend themselves nicely to a modern style. Be sure to notice the before photo below to appreciate how major the changes were.
We used all new stainless steel appliances and creating a recessed nook for the refrigerator for a truly built in look, which brought new life to what was a tired cramped space.
Using colorful glass tile on the full back splash added life and whimsical decor to this unique new kitchen.
A concrete finished pony wall with symmetrical posts on either end were used to hold up the load bearing wall that we removed. They actually created a striking backdrop for this new island.
By removing the load bearing wall really opened up the flow from the kitchen to the family room enhancing the overall space and making it feel so much larger.
Formerly a walled in space separate from the kitchen, the dining area is now included in the new open kitchen area making conversing with the cook a breeze.
This before picture shows how divided the kitchen, breakfast area and dining room were from the living area.
