|Bright & Updated
The old kitchen lacked lighting, counter and storage space, room for a dining room, & general efficiency. The living room did not have a good relationship with the kitchen. Some drastic changes had to be made! The first big impact was the custom countertop-height rolling table designed specifically for this home. When in the middle of the room it creates an additional "island" work space OR an eating table for up to six people. While entertaining, the island can be pushed against the side wall to help traffic flow so people can gather in the kitchen without feeling crowded. The next dramatic improvement was to open up the existing stairwell walls between the living room and kitchen with new railings. This let borrowed natural light into each room and integrated the formerly independent spaces. The small old side window was removed completely and siding patched. This allowed room for the new refrigerator, countertops, & storage. A new 2-wide window was installed over the sink facing the attractive backyard. Other changes in this remodel included replacing the old vinyl flooring to oak hardwood to coordinate with the rest of the house, new recessed and under-cabinet lighting, & all new appliances. The new porcelain tile "wood" backsplash protects the wall while cooking and creates a soft color transition between the "weathered wood" Formica 180FX counters and new bright white cabinetry. As a "foodie" this owner went from shy to enthusiastic about cooking for family & friends!

|Great Design Defined by Efficiency of the Home
Great design is not only classified by how a remodel looks, but how efficient it makes the home. This large Golden Valley rambler with tuck under garage and walkout basement was built in 1962. It was in great condition, being well taken care of by this family of five. Although the home had some very nice previous remodeled areas, our clients wanted to update the rest to better suite their lifestyle and future resale appeal, not only in colors and finishes, but also in function and sizes of rooms. Our client shared their history: "We debated about moving vs. remodeling for quite a while so I was researching both options. I had done some Google searches on contractors for the remodeling side and came across Orfield quite a few years ago. The appeal was the overall remodeling projects you had done, i.e. not just kitchens or baths....Anyhow, when we finally decided to pull the trigger we gave you guys a call, felt like it was a good connection and the rest is history!"
