Project Description

Custom Kitchen Dalhaven Drive

Having lived with the old kitchen, partially finished ceiling, cold air around the windows and very outdated general decor for 16 years – it was time for a change.   Generally the layout worked but the cabinetry design did not capitalize on storage. The end result is a much warmer, modernized kitchen that even our client’s teenage sons got excited about.   Can’t say if it inspired them to help out though….
