Extending Cabinets Unites Kitchen with Family Room

December 03, 2014

Designer: Jennifer Thompson, CKD; Contractor: Clint Lovette of Lovette Construction

The client's home is located in the Crestline area of Birmingham, Alabama. This remodel was designed by Jennifer Thompson, CKD and the contractor was Clint Lovette of Lovette Construction. The client's kitchen was very small and outdated with little room for entertaining. They love to have friends and family over and wanted a space that allows plenty of room for guests to congregate around a central island while also incorporating the bar area and television. There was a wall separating the kitchen from the family room. This long wall was removed providing a very open space to work with.

Their goal was to have a beautiful and modern new space that they could enjoy for many years to come. Wellborn Cabinet Hanover Maple Cabinetry finished in Pebble creates the neutral palette necessary for a backdrop in this gorgeous transformation. In the design, the team decided to extend the kitchen cabinets into the family to bring the two rooms together.

A wall separating the kitchen and the family room was removed to create a more open space.

Cabinetry by Wellborn gave a new purpose in each space. Adjacent to the refrigerator is the "bar area." The bar area has a beautiful reeded glass door cabinet with interior lighting. There is also an open shelf above to accommodate all glassware. After the bar area, the cabinetry flows into an entertainment center that gives plenty of room for all media storage below.

The hub of the kitchen is the center island. It is a beautiful Coffee color that has become the main gathering area of all parties. This large island also gives the client a fabulous workspace and serving area. The commercial style range is on the exterior wall with a handsome stainless steel hood as the focal point. The sink is centered on a window that overlooks their magnificent outdoor space where they entertain guests as well.

Jennifer Thompson and Lovette Construction had a great time working with the clients to achieve their dream space that they can now share with all of their guests.
