Free From Brown

“We are thrilled with the renovation performed by Covenant Construction. It was a very large project, and it was difficult to live without a kitchen; however, Craig and his team were so thoughtful and ensured the job site was clean every night when they left. They went to great lengths to ensure the other parts of the house were dust free. Our on-site man Bob (AKA Bob the Builder) was great to work with. We actually miss him a bit. If you need work done, I highly recommend Covenant.”- Hass Hijazi

Brown tones dominated the esthetic of this house, so while it had the right amount of space and didn’t require an addition to be built, it definitely was not the owner’s style.  

After demolition in the kitchen, a wall was added to create a working pantry. This had double benefits: it gives the homeowners a place to hide some of the necessities of every day living and allowed a more functional and realistically sized galley kitchen. The pantry holds the ‘work horse’ aspects of a kitchen: wall ovens, a small dishwashing drawer, a mini fridge, sink and a lot of storage. This leaves the main kitchen as a showcase for the chef and lets it act as an entertainment space.

The main kitchen was pulled into the great room, but the peninsula has a custom connecting table. With the cooktop wall brought forward (pantry behind), the kitchen does not feel like a cavern. The galley kitchen also has the main dishwasher sink and every needed for cooktop meal preparation.

This room’s esthetic is now dominated by the cabinetry, which a combination of grey (that we custom matched to floor), stained hickory – which shows the grain and allows some warmth to come through and bright white.

The floors were changed to exceptionally durable porcelain wood look flooring  from Centura tile

The fireplace brick was removed and simply painted with a black Neolith frame around the fireplace. We refaced the existing cabinets, and the shelves were added above to create a place for the eye to land without getting overwhelmed by the 20-foot fireplace. 

The staircase was a traditional wrought iron and wood railing, so we created a brilliant modern look with glass panels. The posts were stained grey to match the kitchen’s décor, as the spaces are open to each other.

Not forgetting the importance of a beautiful bathroom, it received an upgrade to finish off the renovation.
