OVERCOMING CHANGE ORDER CHALLENGES

During many renovations, clients discover additional ways in which to up the ante when it comes
to the budget, and it was somewhat similar with
this project.To create a more cohesive look, the client decided she wanted the same luxury vinyl red
river hickory flooring in the adjacent living and
dining areas, which meant adding to the material
and installation costs.The glass cabinet doors were
an upgrade, but it was worth it to have her favorite
blue dishware on display and reflect more light
through the space.
" Three floating shelves were added to finish a
10-in. space and also provide a spot to display the
homeowner's artwork, " said the designer.
Johnson originally wanted to knock down the
entire wall between the kitchen and living area,
but because they found a plumbing vent in it that
could not be removed, they had to keep a portion
of the wall intact.This is where she was able to include shallow base cabinets for additional storage.
According to the designer, the long kitchen
wall was 1 inch short of being able to include a
blind corner swingout in the cabinets there. Her
solution was to borrow an inch from the counterto-floor studs to accommodate the extra accessory.
By using Chief Architect, Johnson was able
to help her client visualize the project, and she is
beyond pleased with her new space. The kitchen

was also perfect timing with all the cooking she had been doing in it during
the pandemic.The homeowner is always saying to the designer, " Have I told
you lately how much I love my new kitchen? "
Not all projects have a strict budget to adhere to, but when that is one of
the main goals, sacrifices may need to be made. A lot of the decisions are nobrainers, while others can be a little more challenging, but knowing where it
is necessary to save and splurge can make all the difference.
