Utilize smart and efficient storage options to optimize your space so that your home feels bigger in a luxurious way. This neutral toned contemporary kitchen and office remodel features Harmoni wrapped laminate cabinets with an integrated design that effortlessly make it clean and clutter-free. Everything from the wine bottle cubbies, pull out storage options, Subzero column refrigerator/freezer, and the Wolf induction range add function to the simple yet pristine aesthetic.


Tip #2: Glam Up a Room with Lighting Options & Fine Finishes

By adding a glamorous black chrome chandelier that sparkles when the lights turn on you can give your kitchen dramatic lighting in a stately and elegant way so it appears “Hollywood chic.” To further exaggerate the effect, we selected a modern glossy herringbone tile backsplash in black and deep eggplant wall paint with a velvet finish to offset the stark white cabinetry and compliment the grey marble countertops. The overall look is bedazzling.


Tip #3 Go Neutral & Add Varietal Textures to Make it Noteworthy

We turned a late 70’s kitchen with dark stained wood cabinetry into a soft, supple, and visually interesting room by going neutral and adding a little texture with the surfaces. This modern galley kitchen in Alameda highlights a mosaic marble backsplash and an integrated Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer that blends into the cabinetry panels to give a smoother look. The countertops are a basic white Corian & the cabinet doors are made of a thermofoil material; both are easy to clean and cost effective. We kept the existing floor tiles, widened the door at the end of the kitchen to make it more open to the dining area, and patched the floor tile so that the entire space felt more vibrant and inviting.


Tip #4 Use Your Tile as a Point of Visual Interest

Use tile to make a statement and instill more balance in your space. This urban Emeryville condominium bathroom focuses on maximizing luxury and functionality in a small space. When first viewing the room, your eyes are drawn to the shower’s decorative band of glossy, three-dimensional tile and matte field tile that were meticulously installed. The overall aesthetic is then completed by the illusion of texture within the floor tile both in and outside the shower pan. To add efficiency, the shower accessories feature a foldable teak bench, teak shelf with grab bar, and large rain shower head and handshower that meets California code requirements for low flow rate. The overall aesthetic creates an oasis for relaxation that will help you feel balanced at any point of your day.

Featured products: Harmoni veneer cabinets wall to wall mirror, tile floor flows into shower floor, outside wall shower valve, three dimensional tile border, banjo top over toilet. Grohe shower valve and faucet, Alfi folding teak shower seat, Kohler grab bar with shelf.

Create a sense of flow and mood for your home by utilizing modern lines and a basic color palette. This contemporary Emeryville kitchen showcases slate grey coloring, graphite finishes on the appliances, and Ceasarstone’s Concrete series countertops to match the unfinished concrete walls, ceiling, and posts found throughout the condo. Each element of design was chosen to blend together, whereby the arched extension to the island was created to round out the primarily linear design. The goal was to maximize visual flow while also giving it a timeless appeal.


Tip #6 Opt for Cabinetry that Makes a Statement

Make a statement with your cabinetry, just as we did in this urban lofty kitchen remodel. The integrated design is all about the veneer cabinets. They give the area a grounded and earthy sense, while also providing a classy contrast to the stainless steel appliances, lightly marbled granite countertop, and glossy tile backsplash. The overall look is quite contemporary as it holds onto a spacious classic look.

Featured products: Veneer cabinets, Sharp drawer microwave.
