Some pretty dramatic changes to a kitchen renovation in South Park. The outdated kitchen had too many doorways and one extra large window that limited the cabinetry options in the previous design. Nest Designs LLC created a new floor plan that eliminated two doorways and one window. Removing those items allowed for a wall of cabinetry and a large amount of surface area on the counter-tops. The area to the left of the stove used to be a doorway that led to the outside of the house while the area to the right of the stove use to be a window.
Repositioning the island and the stove helped create better flow in the kitchen. This historic home had 9′ ceilings and running the cabinetry the height of the ceiling added much needed storage, along with adding a lot of visual appeal. Notice the support beams above the opening that lead into the mudroom and additional pantry (not pictured). By opening up the doorway that had a very small passageway, we were able to make those two spaces more unified. It also allowed for more natural light to flood into the kitchen.

The main living area of the condo is located on the second floor. This image is of the wine rack located at the top of the landing. Nest Designs took an old industrial piece and converted it to a wine rack. Tour posters were framed and hung together to create a graphic statement on the back wall.

The living level is part of an open floor plan that blends the living, eating and kitchen areas together. This image focuses on the living portion. Notice how the brick wall, the patterned area rug and the grey tones in the sofa and chair add color and texture to this space. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
The dining area seats four comfortably. The brick wall in the background is the perfect compliment to the galvanized iron top on the kitchen table. The storage unit behind the table adds visual interest and storage at the same time. The metal stools spin to adjust the height. They are the perfect mixture of practical and functional seating with an urban feel. The kitchen area in the model already came with the gorgeous cabinetry. Nest Designs selected the finish color, the concrete counter-top, and the glass mosaic back-splash. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
Prior to the renovation, there was a window in the wall where the stove is now placed. Removing that window allowed for a wall of cabinetry and a lot of added storage for the homeowners. The two contrasting quartz counter-tops and a fun glass mosaic back-splash gives those surfaces a punch of color and adds some visual interest along with some textural accents.
Over the course several months Nest Designs LLC helped transform this space from an empty shell into this showpiece. From the original design concept to the finished space, this is definitely one of my favorite interior design projects to date. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
It’s hard to believe looking at this image that this kitchen was in a house that had been totally gutted. No plumbing, no lights, no appliances, no cabinetry just the support beam across the middle of the ceiling. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
This view allows you to see the custom built range hood. There is a beautiful farm sink and two contrasting granite counter-tops. Notice the bar sink in the island. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
This is a kitchen in Historic South Park that was still being worked on. The new cork flooring, laminate coutner-tops and fresh blue paint help tie the kitchen together. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
