Carmel Kitchen Rescue, Design by Christopher Wright, CR

Over the years I’ve been asked to rescue a number of projects that were going down the wrong path for one reason or another. When this client first called me, they’d just let their original contractor go after seeing things were not coming together the way they should.

This kitchen renovation was to be the culmination of many years of planning and dreaming for these homeowners. With a file full of magazine pages and a pretty clear vision for what they wanted, they’d placed their trust in a home center designer and a contractor referred to them by a friend.
The road to ugly is paved with good intentions–and while the contractor “was a nice guy”, he had no business renovating a kitchen. His work was sloppy and his approach to installing the cabinetry was a disaster. While the overall design was serviceable, there were a number of small issues that were quickly adding up to average… dull… “wonky”.

Kitchens are complex beasts. Without an experienced mind at the helm, it’s easy for minor mistakes to creep in at the early stages which can cause major problems (and $$$ expense) later on. Even a stock kitchen, as these cabinets were, can look high end with a little bit of extra care and a few selective custom elements.

These Carmel homeowners wanted a sleek, modern kitchen with a more open floor plan. What they were getting was a nightmare. They fired their contractor and went looking for someone to bring their project back on track.

Fortunately, we came along at just the right time to rescue their kitchen design and renovation and deliver an amazing result.
