This mid-century Edmonds home was a perfect candidate for a kitchen renovation featuring a bright, open floor plan and a fresh take on traditional finishes.
A kitchen is the heart of the home and this kitchen beats strong. The mix of finishes in this remodeled kitchen showcase the personality of the homeowners in this Edmonds home.
With two growing kids, this Seattle family was rapidly outgrowing their home. Previous clients, they came back to CRD to design a second-story addition and a whole-house remodel.
A 1928 pre-war home in Ballard gained three times the living space of the outdated addition it replaced, plus a flood of new light from double-hung wood windows.
This darling 1905 Capitol Hill home has a lot of charm. To complete its look, the kitchen, dining room, and adjacent powder room have been modernized. A new kitchen design and expanded powder room increase the homeowner’s storage space and functionality.
The kitchen shines with honey maple cabinetry and Cambria quartz countertops, along with a gas cooktop, built-in double oven, and mosaic tile backsplash, all set to the backdrop of under-cabinet lighting and marmoleum flooring. To integrate the original architecture into the kitchen and dining areas, arched doorways were built at either entrance and new wood windows installed.
The adjacent powder room features cloud-white stained cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops, and a glass tile backsplash, plus new plumbing fixtures, a ventilation fan, and marmoleum flooring.
The home is now a complete package and an amazing space!

This 1953 kitchen was transformed into an open concept and modernized to meet the growing needs of a young couple with a baby on the way. By removing the dividing wall, the small kitchen was transformed into an inviting, integrated space.
Features include new cabinetry, appliances, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, new flooring, and updated lighting. A new pantry closet with a barn door and open corner shelving add to the modern styling.
This 1951 midcentury contemporary kitchen was updated by opening up the walls, relocating a doorway, and reducing south-facing window heights to regain territorial mountain views. The new design created an unobstructed and stylish open concept kitchen for cooking, entertaining, and family gatherings. Features include: new cabinetry integrating two different lines, appliances, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, flooring, and updated lighting.
From the onset, the clients envisioned a classic, elegant master bath that would enhance their daily experience, as well as tastefully update their Sammamish home.
Though the basic footprint of the bathroom stayed the same, the bathroom was updated from head to toe and the master closet was reconfigured. Finishes, including semi-custom painted cabinets, quartz countertops, heated floors, and a custom tile shower, completed the transformation. The simple elegance of a white beveled subway tile and custom chair rail tie it all together.
This home featured a dark, narrow galley kitchen cut off from expansive windows and water views in the adjacent living areas. The goal was an updated and more open feel. By widening the kitchen and partially removing a wall to create a peninsula, the desired effect of opening the room up was achieved. Custom cherry Shaker cabinets with quartz countertops add a modern touch to the lines of this mid-century home. Cable lighting streamlines the room for a brighter, cleaner look.
Marrying the old with the new, this kitchen was revitalized on a limited budget. The existing cabinetry was salvaged in the new design and complimenting cabinets were added to provide ample storage. The kitchen was opened up to the rest of the house, adding light and creating an open layout perfect for company. The new kitchen features stainless appliances, a glass mosaic tile backsplash, travertine tile floors and an abundance of functional quartz counter space. Modern luxury and perfect utility unite here.
This condominium remodel earned the President Award from the National Kitchen & Bath Association in 2012. The modern kitchen features abundant storage in custom-dyed cabinetry. The beautiful dry bar completes the open plan and functions perfectly for entertaining. The master suite features an infinity bathtub, open shower and rich contemporary wood detailing. For convenience, there is an integrated washer and dryer in the built-in closet. Fine art and ultimate functionality blend seamlessly with exceptional attention to detail.
Taking time to get it right provided these avid entertainers with the highest quality and a great experience for their kitchen remodel and game room addition, as well as the perfect fit for their lifestyle. A unique color palette, red quartz counters, grey cabinets, lots of light, space, and texture all reflect our homeowners’ bright personalities. The results are spectacular. The benefits of a two-phased, well-planned building process are obvious.
