The owner is a gourmet cook so functionality and flow was a priority.
The challenge was to modify existing cabinetry, add new cabinetry, and seamlessly blend them into a new configuration and space.
Starting with the space plan, rendered here, allowed the homeowners to envision how it could work.
There was an eat-in kitchen, and separate informal and formal dining. We consolidated the dining areas and opened up the spaces which improved the flow and allowed for an extra large island and pantry.
Being a chef, this huge island gets commercial-type usage. Every cabinet was designed for a specific purpose, including appliance lifts.
Design Build Solution
This large pantry not only houses spices and ingredients, but a refrigerator and freezer. Because of this functionality, we were able to use open shelving in the kitchen area for display.
We had a major kitchen/dining room/living room re-design. The team worked extensively with us to come up with a great design that met our needs. Although the estimated costs were higher than we originally had anticipated, the higher costs were totally justified because we had gone with higher end materials and finishes, etc. More importantly, the final costs were almost exactly what Henderer had estimated at the beginning of the project.
The team was extremely capable and talented, and were totally dedicated to delivering a quality project. They were honest and accommodating, and we recommend them to anyone considering a design/build project. But don’t expect a cheap, Home Depot project. They will, however, provide complete and personal attention and work in partnership with you. We love the final product, and everyone who sees it is impressed with the design and the quality of the workmanship. They are very honest and personable, and we will definitely call on them in the future.
