The Lays had a nice home with some traffic flow problems. The kitchen was closed off in a corner of a large vaulted main living area as was pretty typical of the era of the home. An addition off the back offered some great additional space, but it was accessed through the eating area making for an awkward traffic flow. They knew they wanted a more open floor plan to be more inviting to guest and family and they knew they wanted a nice large island for seating as well. Once we discussed some additional needs, we got to work with the Lays to design a kitchen that was more functional, better laid out, and had products they loved. The result was a beautiful, warm kitchen with adjacent eating area that open to the rest of the main living space. New Hardwood floors throughout the main level added to the richness of the Alder cabinets, and the Soapstone countertops were the icing on the cake. The island is tiered to allow for a spacious food prep area as well as a raised seating area perfect for eating and working. We moved the opening to the addition over in order to move the traffic flow away from the dinner table, but kept a pass-through to allow light and conversation to travel between rooms. The elegant product selections made by the Lays create a main living space that is both stately and very approachable.

“Fresh Start exceeded our expectations.  From start to finish they kept us informed and were always accessible.  Fresh Start and their subcontractors were always professional and the quality of work is outstanding.  What we appreciated the most throughout the project was how Todd and Eric fully listened to any ideas or concerns we had and made every effort to fulfill our vision of what our home should look like.”
