Bluestem’s Winning Remodeling Project:

A Kitchen for a Cook: Bright & Modern Kitchen Remodel
Travel-Inspired High-Functioning Chef’s Kitchen
Category: Residential Kitchen Over $200,000

These recently-retired homeowners had a passion for cooking and entertaining, but their 1980’s-era kitchen was dark, dated and cramped – and they resented spending time in the heart of their home.

Through careful planning and creative thinking, the Bluestem team was able to create a new space packed with custom features and function. Enlarged windows, smart lighting, and vibrant pops of color infuse the space with light, and professional-grade solutions cater to the homeowners’ unique needs and workflow.

This warm, bright, high-functioning kitchen reflects the couple’s aesthetic and travels, and provides the perfect setting for joyful gatherings and unlimited culinary adventures.
