About Broadview Kitchen with a View

Our clients recently purchased a beautiful hillside home in Broadview. What started as a simple kitchen refresh turned into a full-scale renovation to address structural issues and achieve a modern aesthetic.

The top priorities for the client’s kitchen were a space for entertaining and to enjoy the sweeping Sound views. The existing late-90s kitchen was outdated and the walls separated the kitchen from the rest of the home. 

The clients, who are artists and photographers, highly valued aesthetics. Collaborating with their designer, known for using industrial materials in commercial spaces, we aimed to bring these elements into the kitchen.

To start, , we removed both sides of internal walls and reconfigured plumbing and structural support. We then created a design that maximized the views and integrated industrial and mid-century styles, featuring steel shelving and quartz countertops that resembled concrete.

Instead of using traditional concrete flooring, we opted for concrete tiles that were recommended by their designer. Believe it or not, those tiles are 2×4 feet long and it took two of our team to set each one. These large tiles like these are often used in commercial buildings, but the designer knew they were a cost effective (and beautiful) solution for this home.

The renovation also included: A much larger island for cooking and entertaining, custom-made faucets with hot and cold taps, a built-in refrigerator, and a double beverage fridge at the end of the island. We put in two laminated cabinets in two contrasting colors: Wilsonart White Cypress and Wilsonart Black Velvet Traceless.

Lastly, we installed hydronic floor heating and AC, ensuring comfort year-round. The result is a beautifully modern kitchen that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. This project exceeded the clients’ initial expectations, transforming their kitchen into the heart of their home.
