Galley Kitchen Gets an Upgrade

Customer Issues
  • The galley kitchen in this 1978 era home had been remodeled by previous owners but had become tired and outdated and needed to be updated
  • In addition to updating the kitchen, the homeowners wanted to gain more storage and counter space.
Bel Air Construction Solutions

Using our 3D Design/Build process the Bel Air Construction design team presented several concepts. During the design review process, the homeowners contributed to some mixing and matching among the design options that resulted in the final design.

Working within the existing space and changing the arrangement, the kitchen is now more functional, efficient, and much brighter. Here’s how we accomplished that:

  • Dark cabinets and bulkheads were removed and replaced with white Fabuwood cabinets that rise to the ceiling and are topped with crown moldings for a finishing touch
  • Laminate countertops are replaced with marble looking quartz, complemented by a white subway tile backsplash and featuring a large farmhouse sink with a contemporary fixture
  • Replaced the ceramic tile floor with hardwood selected to match the rest of the first floor
  • Moving a washer and dryer to the basement gained additional space for a built-in refrigerator and coffee station
  • Dated lighting was replaced with recessed ceiling lights and low-voltage, under cabinet lighting
  • A stylish range hood/exhaust fan was installed
  • To provide better access to the patio an exterior door was installed
