Remodeling a kitchen can be one of the most important investments you can make. In addition to increasing your home’s value, a kitchen remodel can improve your life. Modern conveniences such as pull out drawers, energy efficient appliances and granite countertops can turn cooking into an enjoyable experience rather than a daily chore.

We asked a pair of Tampa Bay homeowners to share their thoughts and experiences after their recent kitchen renovations. While they worked with the same kitchen designers and shared a common goal, their individual styles varied greatly. The following pages highlight some of the latest trends in the industry and provide tips from the designers who helped bring their clients’ ideas to life.

 


NEIGHBORHOOD: Seminole Heights
HOMEOWNER: Brenda Bowden
KITCHEN STYLE: Traditional, Remodeled in 2012
 

Brenda's Favorite Feature: The wall oven
“Several designers told me I didn’t have the space, but Hui and Ron didn’t think twice about adding it to my kitchen.”

Resources:
Kitchen designers: Hui and Ron You, Cabinet & Stone International; Cabinetry: Maple with spice glaze (wall cabinets); French Vanilla maple (island), Cambridge door; Countertops: Juparana Vyara granite; Stained glass: Hyde Park Art Glass; Subcontractor: Roland Virelles
