Kitchen remodel is like night and day

Kitchen designer - Mireille Fernandez

Sometimes it’s the little things that make kitchen design ideas go from dream to reality. In the case of Nancy and George Hamilton, it was the overhead, overbearing, pentagonal-shaped soffit that had to go; it just took over two decades to finally reach critical mass.

“I hated our soffits. They were a big idea with the builder, but they were really dust collectors. The soffits were popular in the early 90s and a lot of the homes in this neighborhood have them,” explains Nancy.  “We had been in this house for 21 years before we decided to remodel the kitchen. We waited until our oldest was in college and the other was graduating high school. We knew the kitchen was outdated, but wanted to wait until the kids were older and we had more equity in the house. After a while your need for open space is greater than the need to keep waiting."
