DELTA FAUCETS IMPRESSIONS MAGAZINE: DESIGN NOTEBOOK FEATURE
The homeowners of this post-war ranch style home in Tustin, with Sea Pointe designer Linda Pick, made several changes to the once cramped and dingy kitchen in anticipation of a growing family.
The existing sink window was enlarged and a window seat bump-out created to allow family and friends to relax and linger in the new kitchen. Doorways were moved to create a better traffic flow while existing soffits were ripped out to accommodate wall cabinets of differing heights and a coordinating over-sink valance. This added interest plus storage and display opportunities. The re-worked kitchen features three super storage base corner units, a new wall of pantry and appliances (oven, microwave and warming drawer), and a radiused counter for casual meals or to converse with the cook while staying out of his or her way.
The clients knew they wanted bronze craftsman style hardware on cabinetry and were thrilled when Linda recommended a Delta Victorian kitchen faucet in a Venetian Bronze finish as the perfect compliment to their desired aesthetic. The homeowners love their new kitchen and were blessed with a new baby girl shortly after the project was finished.
Sea Pointe Featured in The Orange County Register
By NICK HARDER – The Orange County Register
Jim and Melanie Burian wanted a luxurious master bath, but they knew getting the luxury look wasn’t the main challenge. “The biggest challenge was trying to provide more room in a narrow bathroom that was already small,” said Melanie. “We knew some of the changes we wanted made, but how to realize them in such a small space was more than we could handle ourselves.
On the second floor of their 2,100-square-foot home in eastern Mission Viejo, the master bath was and still is corridor-style. It had a small shower, a toilet area that was not separated, and an entrance door that blocked movement when it was open.
“What we wanted was to have a much larger shower, a separate toilet room, better countertops and special sinks,” Melanie said.
To realize their dreams they worked with a builder to:
– Convert a closet in an adjacent bedroom into a large, tiled shower with multiple showerheads and aseparate closet and toilet room.
– Install a new granite countertop.
– Add two new sinks with glass basins in a gold color.
Working with such a small space the original floor area is about 10 feet by 3 feet proved daunting.
“It’s part of the reason we hired Sea Pointe (Construction, Kitchen & Bath Specialists)” Melanie said. This Irvine construction firm specializes in bathroom and kitchen remodels. “We wanted a firm that specialized in bathrooms and would have a site superintendent on the project all the time so we wouldn’t constantly have to deal with subcontractors.”
The couple chose Sea Pointe because they had a good experience with the company when they remodeled their kitchen three years ago. “At that time,” Melanie recalled, “we wanted to have a home that was a bit larger and that suited our tastes.”
It wasn’t just the master bathroom that didn’t suit the Burians’ tastes or needs, it was the entire house. Built in the 1980s, it didn’t have the “open” feeling that is designed into today’s homes. The dining area was closed off from the living room by a wall, the flooring was uninspired carpeting, and the master bathroom was tiny, with a small shower and a toilet area that didn’t provide privacy. Everything just had a 1970s look, Melanie said.
“The homes for sale that we looked at were all very nice,” Melanie said, “but we would have had to change them to suit our tastes as well. We’d end up spending the same kind of money to change a new house and pay for the new house as well. It didn’t make sense.”
So, Jim and Melanie decided to begin remodeling. First up was the kitchen. A relatively small one, its cabinetry and counters were old and outdated, showing the wear and tear of many years.
What Jim and Melanie got in their remodeled kitchen was a granite countertop to replace the old tile, a mixture of new and re-faced cabinets, new appliances, new lighting and new maple floors. Jump ahead now to the beginning of this year when construction began in the master bath. The first things to be done were the structural changes, according to Len Jay, the production manager on the job.
To reconfigure the space, Sea Pointe used part of the adjacent bedroom closet for the expanded shower, adding a wall to make the toilet area separate. They also reconstructed ceiling areas for new lighting. It is, perhaps, the two sinks that draw the most attention. Within a new black-granite countertop, they have glass basins by Oceana with a gold finish. The bathroom is now much more formal and much more luxurious, and it exudes a sense of high style.
“We were really striving for a richer palette and a feeling of elegance in the remodel,” Melanie said, a large smile on her face. “To get exactly what you want and not have to worry, it makes it all worthwhile.” (Read the article here.)
ORANGE COUNTY DREAM KITCHENS
Sea Pointe Construction had the great honor of having remodeled not one, but three of ORANGE COAST MAGAZINE’S Orange County Dream Kitchens.
“It is the heart of the home. Whether it’s a dinner party or a typical night of the week, the kitchen is where you’ll usually find friends and families gathering to eat, socialize, or just hang out. And when they look as good as the 10 we’ve discovered, it’s easy to see why.
“The Zen spirit infuses this Laguna Beach kitchen, which features custom stained concrete countertops layered with color and buffed to a beautiful sheen. Stainless steel appliances, rollout trays, and an under-counter island microwave oven make this kitchen dramatic and convenient to use.
“An island covered by Black Galaxy granite offers practical and dramatic appeal to this San Clemente kitchen. With the storage and counter space afforded by the island, the room is an entertainer’s dream.
“This Coto de Caza kitchen is the perfect family hub with a built-in coffee center and homework desk. A custom full-width copper hood reflects light and brightens the room.
