The Big Reveal. A Behind-the-Scenes Story of a Kitchen Remodel ( After Photos )
Blending the dramatic desert terrain with equally picturesque living areas was the primary goal of this South Palm Springs resident of The Mesa. Her kitchen remodel transformed a 1985 design into an entertainer’s Galley kitchen, accented by stainless steel appliances and a 75-bottle wine fridge tower, plus a distinctive farm front sink for casual and more elaborate meal preparation. With mobility at the center of diverse lifestyles, a stainless steel cart was included to serve as a movable island, plus additional workspace to maximize the entire “center lane” of this sizable kitchen. White, high-gloss, thermofoil cabinets and quartz countertops artfully completed the contemporary styling of this “Mesa kitchen’s” more functional renovation.

Four-legged family members were also spotlighted when designing the kitchen’s custom cabinet system. A “doggie station” was built as a base cabinet, wherein the bottom sliding drawer contained a pair of dog bowls, above which dog food and treats are conveniently stored.
Lest we forget the desert’s 350 days of sunshine annually, this complete kitchen remodel took advantage of natural light streaming through a large glass slider that invited the outdoors into its open-concept kitchen deign, and was further enhanced by radiant can lights and under-cabinet task lighting to showcase the homeowner’s special artwork. A sloping dark blue ceiling ultimately gave way to a bright white hue, revitalizing both this home and its proud owner for many years to come.
