Kitchen Remodel San Rafael, California | Marin County
This kitchen remodel project in San Rafael, California took a functional but outdated galley styled kitchen with original 1970’s cabinets to a modern finely crafted kitchen with a keen focus on details.
Stripped to the studs, the floor and ceiling were removed giving this kitchen a complete makeover, including an enlarged bay window to let more natural light in along with a remodeled pantry to improve storage space.
The owners of the San Rafael home paid close attention to the details, making their kitchen remodel project unique to them.
Here you’ll notice the custom ‘bumps’ in the countertop just above the hand carved legs built into the cabinet below the stovetop.
To break up the sightlines in the kitchen, the cabinets and crown molding have been staggered. Notice on the left side how the cabinet is flush to the face of the microwave and on the right, the valance across the bay window is set back a few inches. Further down you’ll notice how the crown molding wraps around the hood vent.
To tie this kitchen remodel project in with the adjoining living room, both the lights and crown molding flow from one room to the other.
In addition to the complete tear down and remodel of the kitchen, the couple also made some improvements to the living room including a gas fireplace, flush mounted TV and beautifully crafted built in cabinets and shelves.
The couple of this San Rafael, California home now have the kitchen and living room of their dreams. With updated appliance, plenty of prep space, custom details and open sightline to the living room when watching a show or entertaining guests.
They’ll have many years of enjoyment in this beautifully designed kitchen with both friends and family.
