Typical of a house built in the late-90s, this north Columbus home had spaces defined by walls, and a kitchen completely blocked off from all other rooms. The homeowners were ready to modernize the look and function of their home by opening up these spaces.
Before R Lucas Construction and Design began the kitchen transformation, President and CEO Ron Lucas was able to give the clients a visual of what their new kitchen would look like by showing them the plan with 3D images. This technology allows the Columbus, Georgia-based design-build firm to work out spacing details and make sure everything will fit together correctly when the project is complete.
In order to open the kitchen to the adjoining den with vaulted ceiling, an approximately 8 foot section of the load-bearing wall that separated the two rooms was removed. The new cabinets provide more storage and functionality while adding style that’s current with the clients’ tastes. Wood flooring was replaced with a pre-finished bamboo that will hold up better to the wear and tear of everyday life.
Lighting is an important aspect of making a kitchen both beautiful and functional, so extra care was taken with this feature. Pendant light fixtures are typically hung from ceilings; however, this kitchen’s new eating area has a peninsula top that protrudes farther than the wall above. In order to illuminate this area, pendants were hung by using galvanized water pipe to make stand-offs. This design allowed the lights to be positioned exactly where lighting was needed.
