Modern Home in Sugar House UT

This was a remodel I did in Sugar House. Mark Smith purchased this house and decided to completely renovate. There were walls ripped down, flooring torn out and electrical was rewired. He hired me to help out with the design of the kitchen. He told me he was from San Francisco and had a beautiful home there and wanted to make this one just as nice. So I got to work knowing his interests and what he would be using the kitchen for. We started with the flooring, since he was a bachelor I decided it safe to go with white marble flooring throughout the kitchen. We decided on birch wood for the cabinets and chose ebony for the stain. On the upper cabinets he decided he wanted something different then just black cabinetry throughout his whole kitchen. We went over to 3form Material Solutions and chose a blue textured resin to go in as the pane on his upper cabinetry. We are placing LED cabinet lights inside and under the upper cabinetry. We then went over to Marazzi Tile and checked out tile for the backsplash in his kitchen. As soon as Mark saw the "Soho" collection he fell in love. The tile with the lines etched into it we used for his side walls and the geometrically shaped tile we used for the center wall in which we would place the range and hood. The last thing we went looking for was the countertop. We went to Klein's custom countertops and picked out a beautiful Cambria Quartz counter with flecks of blue. The Blue worked perfectly with the blue we picked out earlier from 3form. Mark was really enjoying the color scheme we started to build with the white, black, grey and blue. After we had the countertops installed and saw how well the blue looked I knew right away what range his kitchen was yearning for. I picked out a 48" American Range and using the RAL color system we were able to match it directly to the blue flecks in the countertop. He was thrilled! I picked out the rest of the appliances accordingly to his budget. The other appliances were a Faber hood, Blomberg fridge, Blomberg dishwasher and a Sharp microwave drawer. After seeing the completed kitchen Mark told me what lighting fixtures he would like seen in the space. We used 3 small pendants and 2 large pendants to complete the lighting in his space. Mark was very satisfied with his kitchen and wanted me to return for designing his master bathroom. Stay tuned....
