Doyle Lane Kitchen Renovation with white countertops

Client Experience

``We completed a total kitchen remodel in 2019, including refinishing our floors and painting all rooms throughout the main floor. We needed to move gas lines so it was very important to me to work with a firm that I could trust. I also had some pretty solid ideas about what I wanted. From the first meeting, Shelley and David were very easy to work with. I felt listened to and that my ideas were respected throughout the project. I had been dreaming about and planning this kitchen for 17 years! JDBG brought my vision to life. I couldn’t be happier!``

Designer Experience

``This project forced us to think outside of the box to bring many different design styles together: farmhouse, modern, and vintage blends. Our client had a very unique vision and we loved collaborating with them to bring it to life. Some of my favorite projects are ones that come with a challenge and this one paid off in a big way as one of our most popular projects to date!``

Black & Brass with Nods to the Past

This client came to us with a very clear vision of what she wanted, but she needed help to refine and execute the design. At our first meeting she described her style as somewhere between modern rustic and ‘granny chic’ – she likes cozy spaces with nods to the past, but also wanted to blend that with the more contemporary tastes of her husband and children. Functionally, the old layout was less than ideal with an oddly placed 3-sided fireplace and angled island creating traffic jams in and around the kitchen. By creating a U-shaped layout, we clearly defined the chef’s domain and created a circulation path that limits disruptions in the heart of the kitchen. While still an open concept, the black cabinets, bar height counter and change in flooring all add definition to the space. The vintage inspired black and white tile is a nod to the past while the black stainless range and matte black faucet are unmistakably modern. 

High on our client’s wish list was eliminating upper cabinets and keeping the countertops clear. In order to achieve this, we needed to ensure there was ample room in the base cabinets and reconfigured pantry for items typically stored above. The full height tile backsplash evokes exposed brick and serves as the backdrop for the custom wood-clad hood and decorative brass sconces – a perfect blend of rustic, modern and chic. Black and brass elements are repeated throughout the main floor in new hardware, lighting, and open shelves as well as the owners’ curated collection of family heirlooms and furnishings. In addition to renovating the kitchen, we updated the entire first floor with refinished hardwoods, new paint, wainscoting, wallcovering and beautiful new stained wood doors. Our client had been dreaming and planning this kitchen for 17 years and we’re thrilled we were able to bring it to life.
