BLB Custom Building                                     
Amesbury, MA

City-dwellers turned suburbanites, the clients longed for the former contemporary spaces they left behind in Boston. Their new home was in a desirable location, but the kitchen was small, dark, and far too traditional for their tastes. The BLB team completely transformed the space by expanding and relocating the kitchen, installing flush, bright-white cabinets, and adding new windows and a floor-to-ceiling contemporary double door to create a bright, high-end chef-inspired environment with clean lines and angles. The clients now have their modern, urban kitchen in the peaceful suburbs of the Northshore.

Quartersawn Design Build                            
Minneapolis, MN

Quartersawn Design Build updated and expanded the kitchen, providing a modern layout for today’s family living while maintaining the elegance and detail of this classic 1927 home. The old kitchen was at the center of a jumbled intersection of spaces and was isolated from the rest of the main level. The client desired a clean and uncluttered open plan kitchen that could be at the center of their home.

Reston, VA

From the awkward corner pantry to the wasted space on the left wall, the small island that included the cooktop was not an enjoyable place for this young family. The challenges came in the form of three walls that the team couldn’t move, expand or remove, so we worked with the doors and windows. From the hood centerpiece to the combination of walnut, off-white, and gold, this kitchen is a true twist of modern on traditional style.

Tenhulzen Residential LLC                            
Bellevue, WA

This family’s kitchen was dark, surrounded by brick and enclosed walls on three sides. They wanted to open up the space, and were adamant about using a specific color, Falu Red, for an island. The kitchen is now filled with natural light, and the layout is both enjoyable and functional for the entire family. Every small appliance is within easy reach, and the room, once chaos, is now a gathering area for both cooking and family time.
