Vallejo Residence

From Unusable to Unified, on a Budget

the goal

Turn a dark galley kitchen into a chef's dream.

the process

Our team expanded the kitchen's footprint by annexing an unused storage area. Our in-house crew designed and fabricated a custom floating shelf detail to span the entire backsplash of the kitchen, incorporating lighting recessed into the underside of the lower shelf. The same team created a custom desk cabinet using pieces of the Ikea modular system that matched the pre-fabricated cabinets of the kitchen.

the final result

The transformed kitchen is now a gourmet's pride and joy. It triples the capacity of the original kitchen with its open layout, custom shelving, oversized island and built-in desk...all within a limited budget.
