Eat-In Kitchen and Powder Room: Space Reimagined

The team here at J&J Construction loves when a client comes to us with a clear, grand vision. This Aurora family requested the combination of their separate kitchen and dining room spaces in order to create a large, beautiful eat-in kitchen more conducive to modern living. This was a large project that involved knocking down a wall to open up the space, as well as the installation of French doors between the reimagined kitchen and front sitting room.

Light, bright, and inviting, this family looks forward to making new memories in their new space for years to come. Kitchen remodeling is a large percentage of the work we do here at J&J, and we love to see a total transformation like this one.

Families are on the go now more than ever. They also enjoy hosting family and friends for informal gatherings. Their kitchen space needs to reflect that: quick breakfasts in the morning, space to spread out charcuterie boards and cocktails, and large cooking prep surfaces. Take a look at this expansive island that provides ample space to do all of the above.

The countertop is Hanstone Montauk Quartz and the pop of color you see on the island is Hale Navy. The backsplash is Lunada Bay Sonare Shooting Star in Pearl Tone and creates a beautiful backdrop to the stainless steel appliances.

The cabinets are Woodharbor Breeze in Forest Park Door Style, one of our favorite styles to use for modern, bright kitchens. The top drawers are slab style, while the remaining drawers are Manor Flat.

All cabinet drawers and doors are soft close, a must for busy families. The main cabinet color is Simply White and the crown molding you notice is a traditional style. We particularly love this lattice design feature that really gives additional interest to the bar nook with wine refrigerator.

This large undermount sink is in Stainless Steel and offered by Kohler. Kohler also offers this faucet called the Purist in Polished Chrome. This kitchen faucet combines a strong architectural form with features adapted from the busiest professional kitchens.

The homeowner’s original 2 ¼” hardwood floors were in rough shape; therefore, we replaced them with new 3 ¼” oak hardwood floors in the Fruitwood color stain. Classic and timeless, clients continue to ask for hardwood floors in their kitchen space in order to maintain flow from the other attached spaces on the first floor.

Our homeowners supplied the cabinet pulls and lights. You’ll see adjustable pendants over the sink, a 5 light chandelier over the island, as well as a 3 light chandelier over the table, all by Kohler Artifacts.

Take a look at the beautiful French doors that now provide a walkway from front room to kitchen, creating a more open-space concept. As you can see, the old dining room space has been completely changed by removing a wall and changing the function of the room. You’ll also notice that the window was moved and a brand new window was installed.

We also renovated the homeowner’s powder room including a Kohler faucet in polished chrome, a Kohler rectangular sink in white, and a Kohler highline chair height toilet with dual flush in white. We also used the Woodharbor Breeze cabinets for their vanity in Hale Navy to match the kitchen island and the same Quartz as well. Cohesion is everything.
