Ever daydream about your “forever” kitchen? What would the most important elements of design, comfort, and convenience be? How would your day-to-day activities, family interactions, holidays, and entertaining change in your “forever” kitchen? What would your space say about who you are? If you’re asking yourself these questions, perhaps you’re ready for some kitchen remodel ideas to get you inspired!

After years of dreaming, Dan and Cheryl bought an existing home in a great neighborhood. They were ready to transform it to their “forever” home. Their design vision was a full first floor renovation, complete with a full kitchen remodel. The existing kitchen and dining room — circa the early 2000’s — were dated and lacking storage and  “elbow room.” Tearing down the walls eliminated the separate rooms and created space for the open floor plan they’d always wanted.

Kitchen Dreams Come True


White and light, the new kitchen remodel made their vision reality. The perfectly placed oversized island anchors the kitchen with room for meal prep, family meals, and various projects. The extra large window over the kitchen sink lets in natural light and gives a clear view of the yard. Completing the work triangle, the chef’s range and built-in refrigerator rest along a wall of cabinetry expanding into the kitchen’s eating area. Next to the eating area, the beverage bar comfortably separates refreshments from the kitchen’s hustle and bustle. 

Timeless shaker style cabinets in a classic white finish anchor the design scheme for Dan & Cheryl’s “forever” kitchen. Natural oak on the island and beverage bar compliments the warm tones of the wood floor, while enhancing the mix of textures in the kitchen. Carrara quartz countertops and white subway tile backsplash continue the understated material and design selections. Brushed metallic gold accents in the hardware and light fixtures add just the right amount of sparkle to this inviting kitchen. 

With all their goals met, Dan and Cheryl’s daydreams have become reality in their “forever” kitchen.
