This Roseville house saw a major transformation. The clients went through tons of tankless water heater reviews for 2018 models, and eventually changed out their furnace and water heater to direct vent, so we were able to remove the chimney that was separating the kitchen and family room. We also removed the wall between the kitchen and family room and repurposed the rooms. A partition wall was created to form a mudroom area near the door from the garage. The dining table that used to sit in the kitchen was then moved to the former family room space. Since we removed one major wall of the kitchen and another partial wall, we needed to be creative with storage. We removed the front closet that was underutilized, and turned it into pantry storage accessible from the kitchen side. We also created a large custom island that includes a slide in range, trash pull-out, and large pot and pan drawers. The black color of the island stands out well against the new maple laminate flooring and budget conscious IKEA cabinetry in the rest of the kitchen. This family of four is loving the functionality and can’t believe it is their house!
