All the elements for the new kitchen area have been in the works for a while now, from the highly custom cabinetry to the one-of-a-kind La Cornue range. Decisions have been made about decorative hardware, counter top materials, plumbing fixtures, lighting and more.
Meanwhile on site, builders have been diligently working on the renovation of the newly extended kitchen area, involving both interior and exterior construction, ensuring the space will be ready when it’s time for the installation.
Karen and her staff have made numerous site visits to be sure all the details are correct. Even a seemingly small error in Sheetrocking, electrical, plumbing or other construction can wreak havoc on an installation.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at what’s been happening.
The English style castle is getting a new extension for the kitchen area.
Exterior work continues on the extension with new roof and windows.
Meanwhile the interior of the kitchen area addition is under construction as well.
The new kitchen incorporates beautiful stone work in keeping with the exterior of the English-style castle.
Unlike "reality" TV shows, many weeks of work are required to perfect the new kitchen interior.
Attention to detail upfront is paramount to ensure the new kitchen comes together as planned.
A kitchen is much more than appliances and cabinetry. Designer Karen Williams and her team give just as much consideration to the ceiling, floors, other surfaces and lighting so the room is totally harmonious.
It may not look beautiful at the moment, but this window arch will be a stunning focal point in the new kitchen.
