the ask

A 1990’s kitchen showed its age and clutter, see before pics below. The former space had dark floors and all-dark cabinets with no reflective surfaces.


Envisioning a modern aesthetic with simple lines, our LA-based client wanted a sleek, contemporary, and airy space.


A key update was to open up the space by removing an odd, pinched knee-wall opening to the kitchen and raising the ceiling height by removing an unnecessary drop in her former kitchen design.


She entertains frequently so having the kitchen function well for parties as well as everyday living was important. Functional, but hidden storage were key to keeping the visual openness while making prepping, cooking, and serving efficient.

The ask: open up and brighten the space adding function for daily living and entertaining.

the solutions

After opening up the kitchen into a Great Room, we created a small island separate from the main island for comfortable daily and party food prep. The main island is party central and family gathering station seating 6 with a wraparound end left open. The opened space and redesigned surfaces accommodate large groups.


A balanced palette with warm woods and light glossy surfaces along with removing the entry wall and raising the ceiling, created a refreshing space that feels lighter and airier.


Warm dark woodgrain laminate cabinets delightfully contrast against lighter elements throughout. A unique triangular mosaic tile backsplash from Walker Zanger adds interest. Gloss laminate cabinets beautifully reflect views of the pool and outdoors while concealing appliances and custom pantries.


The solutions:  a more inviting kitchen for the family and their guests.

the reaction

Brian and his team at eggersmann far exceeded our expectations with our kitchen remodel.


The design phase was thorough, easy and enjoyable. The cabinetry delivered on schedule and on budget. The craftsmanship and materials are top quality. And most importantly, Brian was there every step of the way to help with any last minute changes or issues and always found a solution. We met with all of the high end cabinetry companies and are very glad we chose eggersmann.
