Kitchen Renovation in Brightwood, NW DC
About the Project
A galley kitchen can be the most efficient layout for cooking if done correctly. That’s what we loved about this project! With floor to ceiling cabinetry, spacious countertop areas and proper lighting, we maximized the footprint and made the perfect “work triangle” from sink to stove to refrigerator.
Brightwood, NW DC
Main Project Challenges:
This kitchen design + build renovation project had two main challenges. One was the small, narrow footprint of the space and the other was creating a mid-century design in a federalist period rowhome.
Scope of Work Done:
- Redesigned layout to maximize kitchen space
- Designed custom cabinetry to complement and brighten up the space
- Demolished spaces
- Closed off unnecessary doorways to maximize space
- Carried out required structural fixes to combine and open up the spaces
- Upgraded plumbing and electrical systems
- Installed drywall and taping for new walls and closures
- Laid new LVP flooring
- Painted and finished walls, ceilings and millwork
- Installed custom cabinetry
- Installed under cabinet lighting and kitchen appliances
- Final cleaning and handling
Custom cabinetry with clean lines and warm tones blended the mid-century design with the classic details of the federalist rowhome. Utilizing vertical space with floor to ceiling cabinetry created an abundance of storage. Construction included designing open shelving and installing a high gloss backsplash to brighten and open up the galley space.
