With their children grown and out of the home, these homeowners found their nest to be anything but empty. As their children began to bring home spouses, they found their kitchen and dining layout wasn’t accommodating the additional adults. They started to have a serious discussion about whether to move or remodel and make their home fit their needs.
While this Prairie Village Cape Cod style home was full of charm it wasn’t conducive to entertaining and each room felt closed off. Our wonderful client met with Ron Webster and shared her goals for the remodel. She wanted to create an open floorplan for entertaining and make her kitchen more functional.
Perry Holloway has been walking us through the process of refinishing golden oak cabinets in this recent remodel, designed by Kelsey Kimble. This is the fourth post on the project and in case you missed it here is Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3. This week we get to see the final kitchen!
We love this project as it shows a remodel doesn’t always have to be tearing everything out and starting over.
In early 2018, our homeowners found themselves at a crossroads. They’d lived in their home for 10 years and love (almost) everything about it. It has character; the neighborhood and location are exactly where they wanted to be, and the school for their three young boys is just down the road.

They talked to several other remodelers in the area but felt like we were the best fit for their needs.

A kitchen update was long overdue for these homeowners. For years they’d put the focus on raising their children but they now find themselves empty nesters and the time has come to put some of that focus on their home. Their dark and cramped kitchen was on the top of their list.
Brookside homes boast tons of character, beautiful woodwork, and a quality of workmanship you’d be hard-pressed to find in homes built today. Unfortunately, while these homes have tons of charm they were built for a lifestyle of yesteryear. This particular home’s kitchen had dated linoleum, tile counters, 1950’s cabinets and an awkward layout.
A paneled ceiling, bay window, and original hardwoods help to create plenty of charm in this 1950’s Prairie Village kitchen. And while the homeowner loved so many of the charming details in her kitchen there were a few she was ready to part with. The painted original cabinets were cumbersome to use and the fridge interrupted the flow of the kitchen into the dining and living spaces.
We often share renovated kitchens in older homes but this week we’re sharing one that took place in a newer home. It’s a misconception we all have if it’s new it's better but that’s not always true.
