Bright And Airy Kitchen Remodel in Lake Forest
The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, but for one Lake Forest homeowner, their tiny U-shaped kitchen felt more like a culinary cage. Craving an open and functional space, they embarked on a daring structural remodel that not only opened up their kitchen but also injected it with an updated modern style.
The original layout of this kitchen presented a significant hurdle. A load-bearing wall divided the kitchen and the living room, creating a barrier and a closed off space. Removing the wall entirely was not within their budget, but the homeowners were determined to create a more open and inviting space. The solution was a strategic partial wall removal. Our designers carefully preserved the structural integrity of the home while opening up sightlines and traffic flow as well as saving these homeowners thousands of dollars. There was also a load-bearing post that couldn’t be removed, so instead of hiding it away, the designers cleverly incorporated it into the design. The island now proudly embraces the post, adorned with beautiful wood coffered trim, transforming it from a structural necessity into a unique and eye-catching design element.
Semi-custom cabinetry by Omega graces the space, with perimeter cabinets in a crisp Beach House white and the island showcases a rich Maho Bay finish. The Aurora White quartz countertops offer durability and sleekness, while the backsplash stuns with a herringbone pattern in antique white porcelain tiles. A statement bell-shaped hood echoes the island’s trim, and stainless-steel appliances add a touch of modern shine. Brass hardware accents complete the look, providing warmth and a touch of personality.
