Janet M – Open Floor Plan, Kitchen and Laundry Room Remodel

At Millwood Remodeling & Design, we pride ourselves on tackling the most challenging and intricate construction projects, and our recent kitchen and den remodel stands as a testament to our expertise and commitment to quality. This project was one of the most complex we have ever undertaken, involving significant structural modifications and requiring meticulous planning and execution. In this article, we will delve into the challenges we faced during this remodel and how we overcame them to create a stunning and functional living space.

The Challenge: Removing a 24 ft. Supporting Wall

The primary challenge of this project was the removal of a 24 ft. supporting wall that separated the kitchen and den. This wall was a critical structural component, and its removal required careful engineering to ensure the stability and safety of the entire home. Our team had to remove the existing wall studs between the den and kitchen while simultaneously supporting both ceilings with temporary walls. This allowed us to safely remove the old beams and proceed with the installation of new structural elements.

Innovative Engineering Solutions

To achieve a seamless integration between the kitchen and den, we employed advanced engineering techniques. By cutting all the ceiling joists, we were able to install two 26 ft. engineered 2×12 LVL high-tensile beams above the ceiling. These beams provided the necessary support and allowed us to create a unified ceiling level across both rooms. This innovative approach resulted in a smooth, flowing transition between the kitchen and den, enhancing the overall aesthetic and functionality of the space.

Creating a Modern and Functional Kitchen

With the structural challenges addressed, our focus shifted to designing and installing a modern, stylish, and functional kitchen. We created a new, extended breakfast bar that seats 7-8 people, providing ample space for dining and socializing. The kitchen features all-new J&K white maple cabinets, offering plenty of storage and a clean, contemporary look. The countertops are custom 3cm White Calaccata Supreme quartz, adding a touch of luxury and elegance to the space.

High-Quality Finishes and Fixtures

To complement the new kitchen design, we installed a modern ‘zero radius’ undermount sink with accessories, enhancing both the functionality and appearance of the kitchen. We also added new 4” LED recessed lights and LED undercabinet lights, providing bright, energy-efficient illumination. The hardwood floors were patched and re-stained to match the existing flooring, ensuring a cohesive and polished look throughout the kitchen and den.

Enhancing the Adjacent Spaces

In addition to the kitchen and den, we also made improvements to adjacent areas of the home. A sliding barn door entry and new cabinets were added to the laundry room, enhancing its functionality and style. New patio doors and flooring were installed in the sunroom, creating a bright and inviting space for relaxation and entertaining.

Overcoming Challenges and Achieving Excellence

This remodel was not without its challenges, but our skilled team of professionals was able to overcome them through innovative engineering, careful planning, and meticulous execution. The result is a beautiful, cohesive living space that meets the needs and exceeds the expectations of our clients.
