    It was an ambitious project—to say the least—for a St. Louis couple who took their original kitchen down to the studs and subfloor while inhabiting the rest of the house. Because the age of the home caused many challenges in the structure and overall design of the remodle, the project took eight months. Yet, the homeowners knew the final outcome would be well worth the wait.

    As any designer will attest, the most enjoyable clients to work with are often those with a vision and a thorough understanding that great renovations don’t happen overnight.

    The plan for this newly built home called for two kitchens located next to one another, each with a distinct function. The kitchen in the main area was to be open and connected to all the living spaces as well as the outdoors. The “other” kitchen was designated the “summer” kitchen and was to be used for canning, baking and making preserves. Designer Gegg Design & Cabinetry designed the kitchens to be closely connected by two doorways, so the kitchens can share functions when necessary.

    This kitchen remodel held special meaning to designer Le Coeur Design as the homeowners were also her parents, and the kitchen remodel was in the home she grew up in. The goal of the project was to create a space that would function day-to-day and also provide the flexibility for the homeowners to host their immediate family of 11. Space was needed to make this renovation happen.
