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.

About the Project

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
Scope of Work Done:


  • 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.

Reviews from Our Valued Clients

Our recent unanticipated kitchen renovation was a result of damage from a leaking refrigerator. Zen Renovations was one of several firms we interviewed as we sought a team capable of not only restoring the room but updating all to a greater quality. They delivered! While the footprint of the room was unchanged, we replaced the existing Crystal cabinets with all new custom-painted Keyline inset, moved and replaced all appliances, and did minor structural changes. From demo-day to using the kitchen was 4 weeks!

My wife and I are extremely happy with Zen Renovations. The entire Zen team was respectful, helpful and gracious from the beginning of our project to the end and they finished the renovation early! During the process, they answered all of our questions patiently and clearly. Most importantly, we’re thrilled with our new kitchen, floors, painting and lighting. We highly recommend Zen Renovations.

My wife and I couldn't be happier with the renovation of our basement by Kevin and his team. His pricing was fair and we feel that we got great value for the investment we made in our home. The basement turned out beautiful - better than we could have imagined. I'd highly recommend Zen Renovations and will use them for any future renovations in our home.
