Starcom Design/Build Case Studies: Kitchen Remodel and Updated Living Space in Ellicott City. MD

Friday, November 13th, 2015 by Bob Weickgenannt

Challenge

Our clients were tired of their drab, outdated kitchen.  The cooking and dining area was far too cramped.  It was an inadequate workspace with out-dated appliances and very little counter and storage space. We had some plumbing difficulties to work out.  To connect the new with the existing, we had to remove some soffit and rework the floor joist system. 

The homeowners had specific ideas on what they needed and wanted.  She is a bird watcher and wanted a 180 degree view to enjoy her beautiful backyard and gaze upon the many birds that visited.  Our clients also have grown children and grandchildren and they envisioned a larger, more functional kitchen and a larger dining area so that when everyone sat down to eat, they would all be in the same room at the same table. They checked out our website and then ventured into our showroom where a wonderful partnership soon began.  We had the solution to fit their budget.

Solution

The newly updated area is now furnished with all the amenities to ensure our customer’s happiness. Vyara Gold granite countertops, new tile backsplash, new flooring, updated lighting, all add value and beauty. The stylish two-tier island, complete with a bar sink, also provides extra seating.  

Our customers old 90 square foot kitchen now has over 90 square feet of counter space!  Norcraft Villa Cherry cabinets adorn the walls and give much needed storage.  

We removed the old laundry room window but left the opening allowing natural light into the utility room.  The nook by the rear door is a nice place for storage and a convenient place to sit while removing footwear. 

The new dining area is encased with Certainteed Monogram Dutchlap and ties the existing with the new, seamlessly.

Our designer was able to incorporate our clients ideas with his own experience. A cost-effective strategy was worked out that would allow everyone to succeed.  By re-using some of their windows, our clients window budget was decreased. Our homeowners also bought their own appliances and flooring.  

Our clients are elated.  Because of our commitment to quality and detail and by working closely together, they now have a stylish and updated kitchen.  Their old, not-up-to-code, unconditioned three season room is now a beautiful, spacious dining area for the entire family to enjoy.  It also gives our homeowners an enhanced view of their backyard and the many feathered-friends that stop by.
