Award Winning Kitchen Remodel

Two newlyweds purchased this World War II era home after they fell in love with the location, cozy kitchen, and vintage style. But a few years later, with an active toddler and a baby on the way, they knew changes were in order.

Their immediate goal was to make their kitchen more conducive to family life. They wanted better traffic flow, abundant storage, a comfortable nook/dining area, and an atmosphere that reflected the joyful spirit of their family.

They asked that our design pay tribute to the history of the house while including all the modern conveniences. They also stressed that they would like to incorporate their love of color, putting their personal stamp on a clean white kitchen.

This project was awarded 2017 Outstanding Achievement Award by the National Association of Remodeling Industry.

  • 3-D computer design for new kitchen layout.
  • Interior Design services including material selection and cabinetry layout.
  • Deconstruction with extra careful attention to dust protection and air filtration (special consideration for pregnant Mom).

From the initial meeting with Beth to the closeout visit, working with C&R was a pleasure. Beth listened, offered advice, and was willing to work within our budget. Every worker who came to our home was punctual, courteous, and cleaned up each day. We truly could not have asked for a better experience!

Excellent service and workmanship. We could not be happier with our kitchen remodel. Beth helped design the perfect kitchen and our Lead Carpenter completed the work in a timely and professional manner. Everyone we came in contact with at C&R was great—we are already working with them on a second project!
