We have previously featured Sue Shaw’s beautiful bathroom. As promised, here is her kitchen remodel, which has just won Frey Construction a “Contractor of the Year” Award through the Madison chapter of NARI. Nobody would have guessed that a small bathroom project would unfold into a fabulous new kitchen, but that it did!
Even though Sue lived in an older house, with a severely outdated, cramped kitchen, remodeling that space was something she thought she might do “down the road”. Her first priority was the bathroom remodel. As it turns out, the bathroom remodel required opening up some walls in her kitchen to access piping, so the dream of a fabulous new kitchen space became a reality much sooner than anticipated.
Her initial hopes for the space were to have updated cabinets, countertops and flooring – all within the existing kitchen layout. However, with the help of our designers, we were able to come up with some much more incredible ideas! By opening up the wall between the kitchen and dining room and relocating the doorway into the living room (and rest of the house) to the other side of the kitchen, near the entry door, we were able to create a much better traffic flow for the entire space. This new arrangement allowed us to add space for a breakfast bar AND dining table, which Sue had barely enough room for before. We also replaced a window with a patio door, to allow more light into the space, as well as added access to the backyard directly off of the kitchen. Beautiful cabinets were installed (which no were longer falling off of the walls) and also included extra features and added storage. The updated flooring and countertops look amazing and are easy to clean. In the end, the expressed needs of the client were met beyond her wildest dreams! We already knew Sue was delighted with her new bathroom and now the kitchen of her dreams was a reality too!!
