East Grand Rapids Kitchen Remodel

•October 4, 2011 • Leave a Comment

We created a much larger more functional kitchen area by taking out the wall to the family room and opening up. This gave us room to create an open environment for a more functional kitchen, dinette area, desk space, pantry area with refrigerator and storage (not shown), working homework/craft area closer to the family room. This side of the house is all completely open and is able to take advantage of the windows allowing maximum light into the spaces. The homeowner wanted to have an environment that maximized their space while following the architectural style of the house in the cabinetry and details. The dinnette furniture was existing.

This Project was a true collaboration between myself, the owner and builder/cabinet makers. We had so much fun playing with unique species of wood throughout the space showcasing the owners love for wood veneers. JBID had the opportunity to custom design all of the casework and cabinetry and custom details throughout. We also provided the interior design and finish selections. The focus was making art out of the owners love of wood while focusing on the family need for durability and practical application.

What a beautiful family sanctuary!  This is for a family that truly enjoys their time together and wanted an enjoyable place to gather throughout the summer.  “Kid Friendly” represents most of the finishes and fabric selections.  Maximization of space was a must.  This small but efficient space comfortably sleeps 12.  The pool area in enclosed which is great for keeping the little kids within view.  The cottage is also on Lake Macatawa, perfect for family recreation and beautiful views.

Creating a fabulous transitional residence from an old church.

In memory of one of my very favorite projects.  This fabulous residence with the design that followed much of the influence of the old church was lost to a fire last year.  We worked with this client to remodel the old church format and create a wonderful residence for  a family which included three young girls.  The client wanted to interior architecture to be reflective of a contemporary loft space but maintaining and incorporating the elements of the old church such as windows and ceilings.  The interior design selections brought a bit of the edgy feel using a strong red color in the kitchen cabinetry, contemporary glass tile back splash, and open floor plan.

Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen – Open floor plan reflective of the old church layout that it follows.

Having once been an old church the ceilings and windows had great design and allowed for a lot of light!

What a great way to make a big impact.  By updating the dining room which is attached to the kitchen but also very near the home’s entry, this area makes for a fantastic change.  We took a room in an existing home and completely updated it.  By giving it a face lift beginning with paint, carpeting and new window treatments, it created a fresh new space to add some new furnishings.  Then we added a new dining room table and chairs and some original art that the owner already had from another space.  In a short period of time we had the contractors working in the space while the furniture was on order.  It was fun for the client and a welcome change for the family.
