From Galley to U-Shaped - K-CO Spearheads A Clever Kitchen Remodel

The times are gone where kitchens used to be tucked away in the back of a home as a seen but not heard space. Because over the last handful of decades, kitchen remodeling has gone through a (still rising) evolution of styles that have helped kitchens go from dark corners to the focal point of a home. Fast forward to today, kitchens in the 21st century are much more spacious, minimal, and modern than ever before – something that these San Diego clients were hoping to achieve with the help of K-CO.


Starting out with a pre-dated galley kitchen, these clients were ready to journey through a new kitchen remodeling endeavor to gain a spacious u-shaped design instead. And not only did K-CO do just that, but they also integrated some smart innovations into the mix, making this one of the many intriguing clever kitchen remodels the team has performed to date.


See how K-CO converts this galley kitchen into a clever u-shaped one during a transformational kitchen remodel.


The Clever Kitchen Remodel – Case Study

With a small upstairs galley kitchen, it was hard for these San Diego clients to find the perfect balance between space and storage. But after a consultation with K-CO, they were able to come up with the perfect (and clever) kitchen remodel solution that was able to finally give them the best of both worlds. Even more, the K-CO team not only used innovation to convert this galley kitchen into a u-shaped one, but did so while implementing their previous upstairs kitchen remodeling experiences on this house model to optimize all-around success.


Beginning with the structure itself, K-CO re-routed the plumbing to expand the kitchen, which entailed pushing the load-bearing wall out and installing four beams in its place. When this was set and secure, that was where the aesthetic fun began. Inside this new u-shaped kitchen, you'll find new maple wood, cattail-colored cabinets with Whitman doors that lay against a mosaic glass tile backsplash that connects it to the golden ridge countertops. Along with these eye features that eye pop against the beige painted walls, all new stainless-steel appliances were installed, including a double bowl undermount sink and a Moen faucet. Bringing it all together, K-CO installed a charcoal porcelain tile floor over top of the concrete subfloor, offering that perfect blend of subtle color to the entire scene.
