Designing A Columbus Ohio Custom Kitchen Remodel


When it comes to kitchen design and remodeling, every detail matters. Our recent project for a Columbus, Ohio client exemplifies this principle. With a focus on functionality, aesthetics, and modern excellence, we transformed a dated kitchen into a stunning space that meets the needs of a busy household.

The Challenge: Outdated Layout and Limited Storage

Our client approached us with a clear vision: she wanted a custom kitchen that would not only look beautiful but also enhance her daily life. The existing kitchen had soffits that made the space feel cramped, and the layout lacked efficiency. Our task was to create a design that maximized storage, improved functionality, and added a touch of elegance.

Design Decisions

1. Removing the Soffits

The first step was to remove the soffits. By doing so, we gained valuable vertical space, allowing for taller cabinets and a more open feel. The removal of the soffits instantly transformed the kitchen, making it feel more spacious and inviting.

2. Floating Shelves Instead of Wall Cabinets

Our client expressed a preference for floating shelves over traditional wall cabinets. We embraced this choice, as it not only aligned with the modern aesthetic but also provided an opportunity to showcase decorative items and cookware. The floating shelves were carefully positioned to balance functionality and visual appeal.

3. Pewter-Colored Base Cabinets

For the base cabinets, we selected a sophisticated pewter color. This choice added depth and contrast to the design while maintaining a timeless feel. The pewter cabinets served as a solid foundation for the overall color palette.

4. Warm Wood Tones: Stained Shelves

To introduce warmth and texture, we opted for stained wood shelves. These shelves provided a natural contrast to the sleek cabinetry. Their medium stain brought out the wood’s grain, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

5. Gray Hex Tile Backsplash and Focal Point

For textural variety, we installed a gray hexagonal tile backsplash. The geometric pattern added interest without overwhelming the space. Above the cooktop, we created a focal point by incorporating a tile mural. This artistic touch elevated the kitchen’s design and drew the eye.

6. Accommodating a Busy Household

Recognizing the practical needs of our client’s family, we added a small bench and hooks to one side of the room. This designated area serves as a drop zone for bags, coats, and other essentials. It keeps the kitchen organized and functional, even during hectic mornings.

7. Large Counter with Seating

By the large window, we designed a spacious counter with seating. This area serves as a breakfast nook, a place for family meals, or a spot to work from home. The natural light streaming in through the window enhances the dining experience.

8. Calacatta Miraggio Countertops

Finally, we chose Calacatta Miraggio countertops featuring light gray veining. These countertops exude modern elegance and provide a sleek surface for meal preparation. Their durability ensures they’ll withstand the demands of daily cooking.


In the heart of Columbus, Ohio, our custom kitchen remodel stands as a testament to thoughtful design and collaboration. By removing soffits, incorporating floating shelves, and selecting the right materials, we achieved a harmonious blend of functionality and beauty. The result? A kitchen that not only meets our client’s needs but also adds value to her home.
