    Kimberly Sloss has become an extraordinarily valuable resource. She is an exceptionally resourceful individual who has helped me with organizing my work, upgrading the design of my website, teaching me how to do new things, and even organizing my house and garage.

    Kimberly,
    I didn’t know my office could be so inviting. I find myself just sitting in there enjoying the ambiance. I feel ready to produce big results!

When Walter told me about his custom built Mid-Century modern home I was eager to help realize it’s potential.

Walter's Kitchen

As much as I love plywood, especially Mid Century Modern plywood, I had to agree with Walter that this original custom kitchen was in need of a face lift.

We started by removing the upper cabinet doors. The added functionality was an instant winner and helped to progress the final design of the updated space.

Wanting to keep the same footprint; we choose materials that would complement the original architectural details of the custom built home and reflect Walter’s bright personality. 

The bright red penny tile and sink are the focal point of the space and a nod to the original red Formica.

The Tricky Corner

We considered just replacing the bottom cabinets, but wanting more counter space near the stove turned out to be a higher priority.  Another potential sticky spot was where to create the transition between the new cabinets (above and left of the stove) and the original built ins.

My first home and a big project over 6 and 1/2 years.   I did quite a lot of the work myself which included getting over my fear of the wet tile saw; as reflected in the black glass (peal and stick) back splash.  I received a very generous offer the first day it was on the market for over asking price and appraised value.
