The Dream Kitchen

Project: Complete Kitchen & Wet Bar Remodel

Design: Floorplan Design by Chad Hatfield, CR, CKBR. Interior Design by Lindy Jo Crutchfield, Allied ASID.

Mission: Open the space to make the kitchen more bright and inviting for socializing and family interaction. Install premium-grade appliances.

Challenges: Upstairs bathroom plumbing runs right where we wanted the new kitchen cabinets to go.


The Dream Kitchen a
BEFORE: The existing kitchen was dark and made the clients feel boxed in, so Hatfield tore out the walls, floor and ceiling right down to the wall studs.

The Dream Kitchen b
DEMOLITION: The demolition team camera-scoped the upstairs plumbing before tearing out the existing kitchen’s drop down ceiling. The installation team guaranteed they could modify the new cabinets to accommodate the plumbing before the demo proceeded. Down the hall, extra framing was built to provide proper reinforcement for extra deep laundry room cabinets.

The Dream Kitchen c
AFTER: Hatfield raised the kitchen ceiling to 10-feet. Pre-finished, shaker design Canyon Creek cabinets hide the bathroom plumbing and provide plenty of storage. A KitchenAid Pro Line Series counter depth, French door refrigerator stores all the fresh food a family that loves to entertain needs.

The Dream Kitchen d
Every home chef needs fire and precision, best delivered by 48″ Wolf Pro Dual Fuel range. Built-in ventilation whisks away the smoke and there’s plenty of prep space on either side.

The Dream Kitchen e
Suspended stainless steel lanterns illuminate the centerpiece kitchen island and prep sink. Below the granite countertop lies ample storage, a Sharp 24″ built-in microwave drawer to the right and a built-in steam oven to the left.

The Dream Kitchen f
AFTER: Mocha Ceasarstone countertops, illuminated by under cabinet lighting, run the perimeter of the kitchen while the island’s granite is marbled in gray, caramel, white and cream.

The Dream Kitchen g
AFTER: The kitchen floor is tiled in sophisticated 12×24 ceramic tiles, while 3×6 glass subway tiles add depth to the backsplash area.

The Dream Kitchen i
Counter-to-ceiling windows light up the dish sink. The design provides easy access to the whisper-quiet built-in dishwasher and adjacent dish cabinets.

The Dream Kitchen h
BEFORE: The existing wet bar looked more like an office cubicle than a place to entertain.

The Dream Kitchen j
AFTER: The new wet bar allows the home bartender to serve seated guests on one side and anyone who bellies up to the bar on the other.

The Dream Kitchen k
The breakfast table, adjacent to the wet bar, is the ideal place to discuss the day ahead or share tales of the day that was.
