Aloha Hawaii Home & Garden Network,
Recently, a homeowner who owns a well-known local business entered Homeowners Design Center seeking help with her kitchen remodel. Like so many others, she had heard from friends and talk around town that Homeowners Design Center was the place to go for beautiful, functional kitchens in Hawaii.
When she entered the showroom, she had many questions about the remodeling process. Experts on the floor were able to assist her, but it wasn't until after the initial consultation, when she met with kitchen designer Randall Omoto back at her kitchen, that she was able to truly communicate her goals for her kitchen remodel.

At the time of the first meeting, the homeowner was unhappy with the layout of her kitchen. The island in the center took away valuable space that she needed for entertaining guests. She wanted to accentuate her kitchen with the warmth and beauty of natural materials, and she wanted to open up the space, enabling people to mingle during parties and events. She wanted her kitchen remodel to address these goals.
The homeowner worked with kitchen remodeler Homeowners Design Center to choose new appliances including a Uline beverage center with an attractive glass front. She chose the beverage center because it would allow her guests to have their pick of drinks, including wine, beer and so on. This feature was important because her ultimate goal was to serve her guests and maximize their comfort while they were in her home. During the kitchen remodel she upgraded to Monogram brand appliances, choosing only to keep her built-in refrigerator.
To add openness to the space, the homeowner chose Kitchen Craft cabinetry featuring Rochefort glass doors and warm wooden frames with a gleaming cherry finish. The island was removed to open up valuable floor space, and in its place, a peninsula countertop was positioned at a 90 degree angle to the food preparation area. She wanted the kitchen remodel to replicate the look and experience of sitting at a sushi bar, so her guests would be able to sit and socialize while drinking and eating.
The homeowner gravitated toward her granite countertop selection when she saw it in the showroom. Called "volcano," it's striking, black with jets of gold, which added movement and texture to her warm and vibrant kitchen. These countertops helped accentuate her new stainless steel appliances, creating visual unity throughout the space.
At the end of the kitchen remodel, she worked with Homeowners Design Center to have hardwood floors installed. When the renovation was finished, her kitchen remodel had achieved the warmth and openness she had wanted all along. Homeowners Design Center works with clients like this homeowner all the time to produce beautiful, functional kitchens.
