2015 Remodeling Excellence Award

Ranch Reconfiguration Leads to Industry Award

This small ranch home had an even smaller, outdated kitchen that was visually disconnected from the rest of the main living space. Normandy Designer Vince Weber was brought on to explore designing a modern, open-concept floor plan that visually connected the kitchen, eating area and main living space while still allowing for an understanding of where one space ended and another began.

In order to create the right design, the first step was to figure out how to realize an open floor plan without relocating the central fireplace and mechanical closet. Interestingly enough, the adjacent dining room was previously an attached one-car garage. However, a previous project converted the area and added an attached two-car garage to the home.

The ceramic tile backsplash with a mosaic-like also brought a modern feel to the space. With an easy to clean surface and very little grout lines, this was the perfect choice for a long lasting, good looking design element.

While design elements were important, it was also imperative to ensure that there were ample amounts of storage space. Vince took the opportunity to creatively incorporate additional cabinetry and a vertical wine storage unit within the large beam in the kitchen.
