Kitchen remodel domino effect
Written by: Alice P. Drake
Mike and Laura DeLucia’s old kitchen had served them well for 25 years and the couple had no real problems with the previous design. However, the idea of a kitchen remodel started to percolate with a simple concept: Laura wanted a gas range. “After that, it grew arms and legs,” laughs Mike.
“We looked around for a while and interviewed several kitchen designers. I had been cutting out photos of kitchens for 2-3 years and found that I kept going back to pictures of kitchens from Artisan Design,” says Laura. The funny thing is that the shop is just down the street from the DeLucia house. “We have driven by it every day for 25 years, but only went inside once or twice,” says Laura.
When meeting with Ralph Mills, creative director of Artisan Design, the DeLucias were able to sit down and look at several images on Houzz.com to find inspirational kitchen remodel photos and collaborate on the final design idea. “We discussed their needs, how they cook and how often they entertain. They needed a big prep kitchen because they have their family over once a week,” explains Mills.
