2013 Year in Review: CaseIndy Kitchen Remodeling Projects

We were fortunate to have been able to design many beautiful kitchens for our clients in 2013. Always marrying functionality with aesthetics, each space was custom-designed around the homeowners’ goals. Our projects ranged from cosmetic upgrades, to complete redesigns. In this pictorial review of our year in kitchens, we highlight the trends we are seeing in kitchen design.

In this project, two closets were replaced with the refrigerator and surrounding cabinetry. Additional cabinetry was added to the perimeter where the refrigerator once stood.

Curved islandMaximizing functionality is still one of the top goals in today’s kitchen design. In this project, a large, curved island take the place of a small island and a table. The homeowners love the flexibility of this new design.

Modern Kitchen DesignWidening design choices in kitchen cabinetry allow homeowners more options to express their style. These recently released bamboo laminate cabinets added to the modern look these homeowners love.

Kitchen remodelCabinetry sets the tone for a kitchen, providing the base for the rest of the design. These homeowners were looking for a retro feel, which the transom cabinets fulfill beautifully. Material choices such as the farmhouse sink, the subway tile backsplash and the globe light fixtures help complete the look.

Induction cooktopQuick-cooking technology continued to make inroads into functional kitchen design. The burners stay cool to the touch, and water boils in 90 seconds. The only drawback we heard from homeowners was the need for magnetic cookware.
