You don’t need to buy a new home to get your dream kitchen. If you can work with the space you have, like Bay Area designer Nicola Salceda of Eye For Pretty did here for her clients, then you might have a winner and you don’t have to move! This space required a complete rework to enlarge the kitchen area. We worked alongside Diablo Luxury Builders, turning the family room into a space housing the new kitchen, office, and bar and opening the dining room to the new living space. We gutted each room then installed new hardwood floors, cabinetry, lighting, and other furnishings. In the guest bath, an update was needed to keep the flow of light and bright, while anchored with black details for interest.
