This is a kitchen dining room and living room remodel in which we removed a hideous stone fireplace that cut off the flow of the room. We pulled away the fireplace, centering it in the existing space, and removed the wall that divided the kitchen from the living room and dining room, thus opening the floor plan. We installed a modern fireplace unit that gives off minimal heat. The fireplace was built with custom veneer so that the surround looks like it is carved out of an open chunk of wood. There is no ingrain visible.
Veneer is quarter sawn white oak. Fireplace is operated by a remote control. LED flush lighting.
Custom cabinetry made by Arturo Silva. Drawers pull out, which is nice for organization and easy access. We used drawers wherever possible instead of shelving. One of the cabinets houses a pull out industrial-strength heavy duty custom mixing bowl that comes up to waist height.
Table top extension – preparation table that parks at the end of the cabinets. Custom made table made from Caesarstone to match kitchen counter with metal legs. Multi-functional, it can swivel to be a prep table and move to the center of the kitchen as an island.
