creating brighter,
better flowing spaces
T
K Building & Design had the
privilege of completing this firstfloor
renovation centered on a
redesign of the kitchen. The existing
kitchen was laid out around a load
bearing post that closed off the kitchen
and created an odd layout. Outside of
the kitchen area, the dining room and
first floor bathroom were to be renovated
along with cosmetic upgrades in the
front foyer, living room and rear foyer.
The first key accomplishment in the
kitchen was to remove the load-bearing
post (see BEFORE photo opposite page).

We installed a steel beam recessed into
the ceiling, which spanned the entire
kitchen space and remained hidden in
the ceiling creating a seamless look.
Although the kitchen remained in its central
location, removing the post allowed
us to start from scratch when redesigning
the layout. The homeowners desired
a more functional layout, but also wanted
a brighter space that was more open
to the adjacent dining room and living
room, without sacrificing any storage or
workspace. With plans and ideas in mind,
we went to Alliance Custom Cabinetry in
Terre Hill to finalize cabinetry details and
selected white perimeter cabinetry and
a quarter sawn white oak island with a
custom neutral stain.
We decided to utilize the taller ceiling
height in the space and double stack the
upper cabinets for added storage. Shallow
cabinetry was added on the backside
of the island for additional storage, as
well as a tall pantry cabinet with pull
out shelves used to replace the existing
corner pantry closet. Within the kitchen,
many of the cabinets feature specialized
organization, such as tray dividers, spice
pull outs, and utensil dividers. Elegant
