Column: Kitchen remodels can brighten dark spaces


Commentary by Randy Sorrell and Bill Bernard

Staying home is common these days as we practice safe living and social distancing. Perhaps that’s why the remodeling and outdoor living industry is experiencing a surge in projects. We are incredibly grateful for that, and incredibly grateful that our corporate tag line resonates.

Stay home, be moved.

Perhaps it’s a little odd to discuss “tag lines,” but these few-thought provoking words – stay home, be moved — speak volumes. Most of us are repurposing areas of our homes to become temporary offices, impromptu classrooms and energized exercise nooks. Ideally, we prefer that these spaces speak to us and resonate with who we are. But that’s not always possible, is it?

Kitchen remodel

This kitchen remodel absolutely resonated with the thrilled homeowners and is a brilliant display of how they live. As is apparent, it was a complete rip-out with walls removed, a new design and massive transformation. From drab to fab with just about every luxury implemented from rescued and repurposed glass tiles from the ’30, waterfall edge quartz counters, solatube skylights for natural illumination, retractable overhead vent above the induction stove top, yummy sleek cabinets with automatic lifts for hidden mixers/toaster, and the list continues.

Notice how crowded and dark the space was versus the ultra-modern, fresh and clean dream kitchen!

Certainly, not all kitchen or bathroom remodels are this extensive. In fact, more facelifts are happening than ever where cabinets are being painted, new counters installed and updated hardware are charged with lifting our spirits and elevating our spaces.

Fortunately, both complete remodels and facelifts have the capacity to change how you live.

Stay healthy and … stay home, be moved.
