I will take an Old Fashioned
Like the cocktail cherry in an Old Fashioned, the rich, cherry wood in this made-for-entertaining kitchen, adds a touch of classic old-world elegance to this modern, and efficient space. Accomodating the clients’ needs required reconfiguring, plus adding one hundred square feet to the kitchen footprint to incorporate a “must have” large island with a prep-sink. Examples of the attention to detail are evident throughout with the selection of materials and finishes that compliment and bestow harmony and elegance. Finally, no entertaining kitchen would be complete without a TV. We will drink to that!

Nob Hill Chic
A mid-century modern home in Albuquerque’s eclectic, fashionable Nob Hill had a diamond-in-the-rough kitchen in need of a redesign to match the new owner’s entertaining lifestyle. The first step was to open the kitchen to the living and dining areas to improve flow and cohesion between the spaces. Updating the old cabinets with a combination of contemporary matte black and rich walnut cabinets created a space that’s chic, inviting, and warm. The new mid-century inspired tile backsplash reinforces the home’s décor and the owner’s design sensibilities.

Arts and Crafts Flair
A dated, dark kitchen is transformed with an arts and crafts design reflecting the owner’s distinct style. White shaker cabinets instantly brighten the room and backlit Prairie-style glass inserts add flair. Custom elements like repurposing a small closet as a beverage station created more useful space. Moving the range from the corner to the center wall and framing it with a period-inspired backsplash created a beautiful focal point and a better use of space.

Cozy Southwest
A young family who loves to entertain wanted to upgrade their Southwest style Albuquerque kitchen to match their active, social lifestyle. Taking down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room created a bright, open concept space and provided flexibility to arrange the kitchen appliances in a more efficient way. Replacing the small, dual-height island with a larger, streamlined island that has a cooktop and plenty of storage made a commanding space to cook. Warm quarter-sawn oak wood cabinets complement the home’s rustic brick floor for a cozy, inviting space where family and friends can gather.

Asian Inspired Elegance
This Albuquerque bathroom remodel resulted in an elegant and calming escape with Asian flair. Removing a corner tub opened space to extend the cabinets and create more storage in the small space. Replacing the outdated red oak vanity with gleaming cherry wood creates warmth and contrasts beautifully with the minimalist elegance of the modern concrete porcelain wall and floor tiles. Finishing touches including an oriental runner, unique Chinese style horseshoe chair, and Asian-influenced sculpture pull the room together.   

Navy is the New Black
Cabinets take center stage in this elegant Albuquerque kitchen remodel thoughtfully designed to keep appliances in place to reduce cost. Outdated maple cabinets were replaced with sleek navy cabinets extended to ceiling height to increase storage. Special features including spice and cutlery drawers and rollout drawers improved functionality. Updating the dual-height island counter with a single quartz countertop created a streamlined workspace. The result is a beautiful complement to the home’s décor.

Shaker Statement in Santa Fe
One underutilized space becomes two much more functional rooms in this thoughtful home remodel. Closing the back wall of the kitchen and opening a wall to the dining area created an efficient, welcoming kitchen for entertaining and enough space for a much-needed separate office. Updated kitchen finishes include Shaker-style cherry cabinets and low maintenance quartz countertops. The vibrant green subway tile backsplash creates a unique focal point for the room.
