“Ranch Kitchen Reno – CDECA Award Winner”

A 1959 ranch bungalow gets a spacious contemporary kitchen

Home Interior Guide, June 2009


The owners of a 1959 ranch bungalow desperately needed a complete renovation of their kitchen, including opening it up to the dining room. Their wish list included: insulating the walls, workspace for two cooks; a breakfast and entertainment bar; desk area; and as much storage as possible. In terms of style they wanted a clean, open, minimalist look in keeping with the architecture. Challenges included: removal of a load-bearing wall; creating seamless flooring; emphasizing the horizontal aesthetic of the space; and taking responsibility for every aspect of the design, since a kitchen company was not hired.

The old kitchen was dated and the owners were hoping to not only rejuvenate its aesthetics, but to improve its overall functionality.

A contemporary look with modern, clean lines gives this award-winning kitchen a timeless quality.

Kitchen Under Renovation
The old kitchen was basically stripped and gutted as the components of the re-done kitchen, from cabinets to island/bar, were all new.
Cooking by Sunlight
Moving the cook area to sit right in front of the windows took away the the divisive line and it also allows for great light — a refreshing way to cook. The high end range hood is gorgeous, and the counter space is almost endless.

Fun and Functional Bar Seats
No longer do you have to fret that you’re ignoring guests in the living room during cooking time. The entertainment bar allows guests to sip drinks and snack on apps only steps away; close enough to lend a hand.
Desk Area
A cozy spot at the window is a great place to sit with a laptop, for doing homework or browsing for just the right recipe.

An additional sink is exactly what a kitchen made for two cooks needs.
Ample Storage
Pull-out drawers provide plenty of space to store and hide kitchen goods and accessories.
