Historically integrity and modern functionality were the main priorities for the homeowners of this Kitchen Remodel.  Opening up walls and creating wider entries into the existing cramped kitchen helped in creating a sense of more room.

The design process started with rethinking the main sight lines from the front entry of this historic home.  Taking inspiration from the existing open staircase, the main entry into the kitchen was widened to create a sense of invitation.  By opening up the wall to the existing dining room as well as the back family room, the kitchen became the heart of the home.  The use of warm wood accents and natural stones enhanced the sense of invitation to simply sit and stay awhile.  While the footprint did not get bigger, incorporating functional inserts into the cabinets optimized storage and made for a more efficient flow within the work space.

What We Did

Designed & Built Kitchen Remodel

This was my first home remodel project and I had no idea what to expect. A friend referred me to Meyer Brothers and Sons - thank goodness he did. I could not be more pleased with the entire process from start to finish. I first met with Rick, their architect, to discuss what I wanted to do. Rick had great insight and suggestions that were within my budget and did so without pressuring me in to making any hasty decisions. It took me a while to decide what I wanted. Rick remained patient and insightful throughout the entire process. From there, Jerry took over as the project manager. Jerry was equally great to work with. Rick and Jerry laid out the work schedule before everything got started. It was a 5-week project and they stayed on schedule, or worked ahead of schedule, at every step. The project actually finished a day earlier than was scheduled. When I signed the contract, Rick and Jerry advised me of some issues that may be realized during the demolition phase that could add to the cost. When a couple issues did come up, Jerry let me know right away, laid out my options, and accurately estimated the cost. Throughout construction, Jerry communicated with me regularly to make sure everything was progressing the way I wanted it to. All of their employees and subcontractors were courteous and professional. The end result is I have an awesome new kitchen, living/dining room, and bathroom at a reasonable cost. If you're considering a project in your home you need to contact Meyer Brothers and Sons. These guys rock! I will definitely be calling them again when it comes time for my next project.
