Kitchen Remodel - Hallan

This client’s kitchen was 60 years old and desperately in need of a kitchen remodel. Not only was the kitchen outdated, it wasn’t functional. She likes to cook and the existing kitchen design didn’t make it easy for her. The room was very dark and lacked much-needed counter space.

We installed new cabinets, replaced the existing range with a gas cook top, regular over, and a steamer/convection over; giving her the tools she needed to make cooking more enjoyable. We replaced her existing sink with one that included a cutting board and incorporated a strainer basket. We added extra lighting so she could really see what she was doing and set a more appropriate mood for the room.

By adding a trellis we were able to separate the kitchen from the family, but still left the space open so she doesn’t feel confined when she’s cooking. We decided on a portable island so she would have extra counter space and storage when she needed it, but it could be removed when she wanted more room in the kitchen.

My client bought it at Big Lots. They are still very happy with it.
