Remodeling The Heart Of The Home

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

The kitchen, often referred to as the “heart of the home,” is one of our favorite spaces to remodel!  We recently had the opportunity to renovate the kitchen and main living area of a Chanhassen home.  The homeowners – a family of four – approached Sass Construction with the goals of brightening their kitchen and creating a more open floor plan, ideal for entertaining.

To get their remodel underway, we began by replacing their original, flat panel oak cabinets with new custom-made enamel units.  Laminate countertops were replaced with granite upgrades and a new center island was added to afford the family more workspace.  To create the open floor plan that our clients craved, we removed a wall that had previously divided the kitchen and dining room and carried our remodel and renovation into the family room!

To give the family’s gathering space an updated look, we removed the existing masonry from the face of the fireplace.  We then framed the walls to insert a gas fireplace with a stone wall and complementing mantle.  Finally, we created a recessed area above the mantle that would allow the television to lay flush with the new wall.  To give the room a finished look, we removed the existing popcorn textured ceiling and installed an updated, knock-down ceiling in its place.

The end result was a fabulously updated and functional kitchen and a flexible floor plan divided only by well-placed furniture!
