Featured on HGTV
This mid-century modern home was originally designed and built by Ralph Haver in the Marlin Grove neighborhood in central Phoenix. Our remodel of this unique home was featured on HGTV and gained national recognition as well as locally on the Modern Phoenix home tour and website.
Our remodel of the home’s interior involved updating the kitchen, guest bathroom, and great room areas. This unique space was transformed and given a high-end European feel while retaining its 50’s flair
A more open floor plan
The mid-century modern kitchen remodel created a more open floor plan by removing the original box-like island from the kitchen. Then we replaced the island and the rest of the original cabinets with new frame-less acrylic-finish UltraCraft cabinetry. Adding bold touches of orange cabinetry as well as stainless steel kick plates accented this unique kitchen.
Quartz counter-top material wrapped three sides of the new island. The same quartz counter-tops were used on all of the kitchen cabinets, extending out onto the “floating cabinets” in the dining area. The kitchen was also tiled with the same porcelain rectangular tile used in the adjoining great room.
Floating cabinets allow light
The floating cabinets are supported by a tubular steel framework between the kitchen cabinets and the dining room block wall. We replaced an unused exterior door in the dining area with a picture window. The floating cabinets allowed the light from the window to flow above and below the cabinetry into the dining area.
Additional lighting features
The mosaic glass tile back-splash was accented by the touch-to-activate under-cabinet lighting. A boxed fluorescent ceiling light was removed and replaced with cable lighting that would not conflict with the exposed ceiling beams.
