It was a pleasure to work with Carole Wylie. It was our first experience working with an architect and interior designer to remodel our kitchen. She captured the vision we had and made it become a reality. Carole was creative in working within the limits of our space and our budget. She is a true professional and teamed well with the contractor. After working with Carole, I am convinced it was a wise decision to hire her because I think the results are incredible. Our family and friends tell us our kitchen should be in a magazine. We admire our kitchen everyday!Al and Teresa Lerma
Ramona, CaliforniaThis project included a complete kitchen, laundry and pantry room remodel. The goal was to open up the kitchen to the dining and great room space, while still maintaining a distinct separation. This was achieved with an opening between the spaces, framed with a beam and columns at each side rich with detailed molding.
The flat ceiling was removed to reveal a sloped, higher ceiling, made possible by the existing structural scissor trusses.
“Before & After” views
A large island, new flooring, cabinets, appliances and granite countertops update the space, while an added north-facing bay window catches the light from the east and west.
Several different lighting effects complete with dimmers, adds ambiance and versatility to the project.
A wall was removed between the existing laundry and pantry rooms, making it possible to eliminate a door into the kitchen, which created more usable wall space in both rooms. The new laundry/pantry is more efficient bringing natural light into both spaces.
