Wall had to come down

Customer Issues

In a rightsizing move, the homeowners had recently moved into an existing home in a very desirable location. The new home checked many of the boxes that they desired except that a partition wall between the kitchen and family room was not to their liking because it limited socialization when entertaining.

Bel Air Construction Solutions

The Bel Air Construction team first removed the partition wall and the existing cabinets and countertop. Utilities were rerouted and care was taken to preserve any removed hardwood floor for future patching.

Replacing the removed wall and work surface is an elegant 4 foot by 12-foot island. This multi-purpose island provides ample space for food preparation, food service and has seating for 5. The countertop is LG Halusys Viatera Rococo, a pale eggshell quartz with delicate gray marbling that complements the gray painted Custom Wood Products base cabinets.

The renovated kitchen features a complete Z-line stainless steel appliance package including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, wall oven, 8 burner gas range and range hood.

Extensive storage is provided by the white Custom Wood Products lower and upper cabinets. The lowers are topped with the same LG Halusys Viatera Rococo quartz used on the island.

Going against the convention of using tile for the back splash this kitchen design uses the LG Halusys Viatera Rococo quartz to provide an ascetically pleasing seamless look. In keeping with the seamless look lighted power strips are used to provide both power and undercounter LED task lighting.

Brushed gold sink faucet and pot filler are by Moen.
