1. East Lansing Kitchen Remodel

Our Client’s Wishes:  A bigger kitchen for additional storage and improved workspace.  Create a space where the kids could hang out and have snacks while she was getting her meals ready.

How K. Fedewa Builders executed their wishes: We enlarged the kitchen to include the adjacent breakfast nook.  The design included a larger island area for the kids to eat at while cooking and prep work happens in the rest of the kitchen. A stunning color combination was the first choice and the driving factor in the design. Dark, warm tone lower cabinets contrast beautifully with white, 42-inch upper cabinets which help the small space feel larger and more open.  A sleek white subway tile backsplash offers a low maintenance and modern surface. The exquisite dark grey Moroccan-themed mosaic porcelain floor tile creates an intriguing motif that catches the eye like no other. Topping it all off are high-end stainless-steel appliances.

2. Okemos Kitchen Remodel

Our client’s wishes:  They wanted a larger kitchen so that when they were having family over they could all enjoy the one space.  Accommodate everyone now and in the future.  Finishes that wouldn’t distract but would complement the wooded lot outside.

How K. Fedewa Builders made their dreams come true:

We redesigned the space to remove a wall and peninsula, opening the space up to the dining and family rooms.  The Kitchen was laid out to include a very large island that the whole family could gather around.  A clean, modern look in finishes that were light and bright helped the space feel large and open and didn’t compete with the outdoor landscapes. Our design experts started with the always classic white shaker-style cabinets. From there, we helped bring the outside in by utilizing a natural pallet throughout with light hardwood flooring and a gorgeous natural stone accent wall behind the giant stainless-steel six-burner stove and massive range hood. Rounding out this kitchen were a stacked double-oven next to a massive fridge hidden with matching white cabinet panels. Finally, the giant kitchen island’s quartz countertop was extended even further out to allow for the family to eat, play games, and do homework all while enjoying the view.

With timeless sage green lower cabinets and island, our kitchen designers allow for great creative expression through color while not overpowering the space.

With K. Fedewa Builders, sometimes a little goes a long way!  Just because the space you have for your kitchen is limited, that doesn’t mean your design options are. In this beautiful Lansing condo, our design team went with the homeowners’ preferred color palette of warm grey tones. Playing off the countertops, we used a gorgeous black and grey granite that is accented by a glistening grey backsplash. The cabinets are the ever-classic white shaker-style cabinets with chrome handles and pulls that coordinate with the stainless-steel appliances. Minor changes to the layout improved storage and functionality. A grey wood-textured luxury vinyl flooring ensures easy cleanup with staining, scratching, or warping in this kitchen. On the upper cabinets, gave the space a more open feel by using glass-front cabinets as accent cabinets flanking the outer edges of the kitchen to living room cutout window.
