R Lucas Construction and Design President and CEO Ron Lucas knows the kitchen is the heart of today’s home – the place where families do much of their day-to-day living.
Ron was recently called to remodel this kitchen/den combo for clients who knew the home they purchased had potential. “The floor plan for the kitchen and den was open, but was very dark and dated,” Ron recalls. The open floor plan stayed during the remodel; however appliances were moved to make better use of the space and additional countertops were installed.
“The cooktop was moved from the kitchen’s back wall to the new island with range hood. The new, solid oak flooring is much more durable with its gray-oiled finish. Recessed lights were added, as well, and fitted with LED bulbs. The entire space was painted a cool gray that blends with all of the new cabinets and flooring and, along with the lighting, really changed the feel of the rooms,” Ron remarks. “Now the space flows together – both functionally and visually.”
