As a 50th wedding anniversary gift to his wife, a Carmel husband hired Central Construction Group to brighten their home’s outdated kitchen and dining room area so the couple can age in place comfortably and host larger family gatherings.
The two-story home built in 1989 included dark oak cabinets, a deep red brick paint color on the interior walls, and a load-bearing wall that closed off the kitchen from the dining room.
The CCG crew worked with the couple to design an open-concept layout for the kitchen and dining room area by knocking down the wall between the rooms and installing a beam to support the opening. It required relocating all HVAC and electrical lines inside the wall.
CCG also repainted the interior walls, installed a new floor, and replaced all of the trim, electrical and plumbing. Using a style sheet created by CCG’s interior designer to see how all of the selected materials worked together, the couple chose new linen-colored cabinetry, quartz countertops, travertine natural stone backsplash tile and luxury vinyl plank flooring.
Also adding a special touch to the kitchen remodel is a vent that pops up from the island cooktop, which the owners can activate with a simple push of a button. Instead of a rangehood extending down into the middle of the kitchen, CCG installed a down-draft behind the cooktop that vents to the basement and then outside.
Like many kitchens built during this time period, the room included a bulkhead and soffit above the cabinets. CCG removed it and installed taller, more versatile cabinets with elegant crown molding. The cabinetry also includes convenient features like soft-close doors and drawers, a trash pull-out cabinet, and a roll-out spice rack.
