Yorba Linda Kitchen Remodel Project

Complete Kitchen Remodel Project with Entertainment Center & Laundry room in City of Yorba Linda Orange County

In this sleek and chic Yorba Linda home remodel, we completely upgraded the kitchen, laundry room, and the living room’s entertainment center & bar. Read on to learn how we transformed these once lackluster spaces to leisurely luxe features of the home.


This Yorba Linda kitchen remodeling project resulted in a dramatic change. Before, the kitchen was dull and dated, with oppressively dark cabinetry, dreary mauve countertops, and clashing white appliances. After, the room became a light-filled retreat fit for indulging in gourmet cooking and entertaining guests. All new high end cabinets were immediately installed. Paint-grade maple with Shaker doors and Jianas molding was split into two colors: Dark Manganese for the lower half of the kitchen to add sophistication, and crisp DE Swiss Coffee for the upper half to bring brightness to the space. All of the cabinets feature hard rock melamine interiors and Belcastel satin nickel hardware. Yorba Linda Kitchen Remodel with Custom CabinetsTransitional Style Kitchen Remodel with custom Hood After the cabinet construction was complete, every appliance was updated. A Wolf 36” Sealed Burner Rangetop makes a statement with its red control knobs beneath a new white and stainless steel striped hood. Behind the rangetop, brushed stainless steel Maniscalco tiles form a shimmeringl full height backsplash. Wolf L Series Built-In Double Ovens were installed to the right of the Sub-Zero 48” Refrigerator, which has been outfitted with custom white panels to match with the kitchen’s upper cabinetry. Choosing a double convection model for the oven provided the homeowners with a kitchen better able to accommodate their frequent cooking and baking. Next to the ovens and just beneath the new 1 ½” straight stone edge Bianco Romano granite countertops was placed a Wolf 24” Drawer Microwave Oven.

Entertainment Center & Bar

The fact that the kitchen opens up to the living room made the former light-wood entertainment center and bar big mismatches. To bring a sense of unity, custom cabinets were built in the same style and color as those of the kitchen, and outfitted with the same striking granite countertops. A hidden sound center was crafted into the top compartment of the entertainment center, along with completely customized drawers and shelves to accommodate the residents’ collection of tech. At the attached bar, we installed a Sub-Zero 24” Undercounter Beverage Center with a UV-resistant glass door perfect for keeping fine spirits chilled and fresh, in addition to an Everest 17” x 17” Bar Sink with satin finish.

Laundry Room

The laundry room became a place where chores now feel like an escape, thanks to the bright and clean spa-like update. 1 ½” Pantel quartz group C countertops keep things crisp with their sparkling white polished finish, and a First Snow honed Daltile backsplash enhances the effect. Scratch resistant white Thermofoil cabinets with white melamine interiors provide ideal durability for this frequently used area, while matching the classic monochrome scheme.

Tustin Kitchen & Home Remodeling Project

Tustin Kitchen & Home Remodeling

Our expertise was called upon for a complete home remodel Tustin homeowners were eager to get underway. When looking at the pre-renovation state of the home, it’s easy to see why. The plain and standard look of every room simply didn’t mesh at all with the residents’ penchant for bold style. Read on to discover how this Tustin home remodel created a wow-worthy abode. Tustin Home & Kitchen Remodel Orange CountyTransitional Style Home Remodel Tustin Orange County


The once ho-hum kitchen was made up of light maple cabinets, white appliances, and dark granite countertops. We turned this Tustin Kitchen remodeling project into a knockout example of how even the most “vanilla” of spaces can gain va-va-voom status. Dark Manganese craftsman style cabinets with Montebello molding were constructed out of African mahogany wood. These high end cabinets instantly gave the room a swanky, upscale feel. Their hard rock melamine interiors, lami white glass panels, and under-cabinet lighting contrast beautifully with the pearlescent Pental Ayoka quartz countertops and backsplash rendered from Eleganza’s Mystic Blends tiles in Sinai. A large kitchen island was built as well, featuring a seating area, storage drawers, and an Avanti Built-In Wine Chiller with digital control panel and security lock. Kitchen Remodel Custom Cabinets Tustin Orange CountyTustin General Construction Home Remodel Brand new stainless steel appliances were installed, matching the subtle traces of silver found on the cabinetry and walls. A Windster Wall-Mounted Hood  over a Jenn-Air 30” Pro-Style Gas Range takes center stage, while to the right, sleek Jenn-Air 30” Combination Microwave & Wall Ovens line up beside a 25 cu. ft. LG 3 Door French Door Refrigerator in a premium stainless steel finish. The left side of the kitchen boasts a 32” x 19 ½” Blanco Performa Cascade Super Single Undermount Sink composed of 80% solid granite and a minimalistic Jenn-Air Dishwasher. Eleganza Eco-Tuscany flooring in Vanilla serves as a handsome blank canvas upon which all of this can shine.

Master Bathroom

For a cohesive look, the homeowners chose to have their bathrooms echo the refinement found in the kitchen. They used the same dark, sleek cabinetry, marbled flooring, and shimmering quartz countertops in the master bathroom. The his and hers sinks were updated with new fixtures and individual mirrors. Eleganza Contempo tiles in Arctic Matte make up the bath and shower walls, while the very mosaic backsplash found in the kitchen makes an appearance behind the shower’s all-glass encasement. Master Bathroom Remodel Tustin Orange CountyMasterbathroom Construction & Design & Remodel in Tustin Orange County

Guest Bathroom & Laundry Room

Much of the same aesthetic and materials of the master bathroom is present here, save for the wheaten-hued MSI Almond Creme countertop. A dividing wall between the sink area and the rest of the bathroom has been cleared to open up the space. New white wraparound cabinetry with white melamine panels immediately made the laundry room feel more elegant. White paint replaced the tan that formerly covered the walls, leaving the durable MSI Almond Creme countertops to take on the role of adding warmth.

Entryway and Living Room

The sweeping gallery style stairs were elegant in their shape, but the unremarkable beige color they were coated with made them almost melt into the background. A simple update of daring black paint on the railings provided contrast, transforming the stairs into a breathtaking focal point of the home’s entryway. Tustin Complete Home Remodel with brand new floors & CabinetsWhole House Remodel with New Kitchen & Stairs in Tustin Orange County The sitting area and hallway of the entry space features Johnson Hardwood from the English Pub Series in Maple Brandy Wine, which also runs into the dining room, and further back into the home, the living room. Palisade baseboard casings and crown moldings add neatness to these spaces. Passing through the hall is found a handsome built-in hutch with custom cabinets in the same white maple construction and craftsman style as the laundry room. At the fireplace wall, once again the mosaic tile theme is present, surrounded by the same ivory flooring tiles found throughout the rest of the home.

Foothill Ranch Complete Kitchen Remodel

The sleekness of contemporary style was blended with traditional motifs in the remodeling of this Foothill Ranch kitchen. A complete overhaul of cabinetry was done, replacing the old cupboards and drawers with craftsman style cabinets in sumptuously dark African mahogany. Frosted glass panels and the accents of simple silver hardware keep their look clean and sophisticated. This same mahogany was used to build the large center island, which features drawers and space for leather bar stools to be slid beneath. All of this construction was done to maximize the storage space of the kitchen, as well as provide an area for the family’s casual dining and gathering. Foothill Ranch - Transitional Kitchen RemodelFoothill Ranch - Transitional Kitchen Remodel 09 Both the center island and surrounding surfaces are topped with crisp white granite. This countertop finish provides a striking contrast to the shaded hue of the kitchen’s storage, and ties in elegantly with the subtle ivory tones found on the walls and shimmering tile backsplash installed behind the stove area. A stainless steel Anzio range hood serves as the focal point of this space, matching well with the kitchen’s other stainless steel appliances. Foothill Ranch - Transitional Modern Kitchen Remodel These appliances include a large GE Cafe refrigerator, a Regatta sink by Franke, and a Bosch dishwasher, as well as a 30 inch convection combination microwave wall oven, and a gas cooktop, both by KitchenAid. Their metallic sheen is kept from feeling too modern by the rich, earthy hues found in the new hardwood floor. From the collection of California Classics flooring, these warmly toned maple “San Diego” planks add natural beauty to this freshly revamped kitchen.

San Clemente Black & White Modern G-Shaped Kitchen Remodel with Sophia Line Cabinets

Read on below to learn how we transformed an aging traditional kitchen into a modern work of art in this San Clemente home.


When we arrived onsite, the clients showed us a kitchen that was starting to become dated. The combination of black marbled countertops with golden oak cabinets is a trend years past, and it had a too-predictable look for our contemporary-minded clients. They wanted to break the mold by going with an all new modern design, leaving this traditional scene behind. San Clemente Black & White Modern G-Shaped Kitchen Remodel with Sophia Line CabinetsSan Clemente Black & White Modern G-Shaped Kitchen Remodel with Sophia Line Cabinets


In order to make the most efficient use of the space in this small kitchen, the homeowners elected to keep the original G-Shaped layout. This allowed us to keep the existing surface area of the countertops and even expand upon it. By knocking out the old cabinets and building new ones from our Sophia Line that only hover overhead or beneath the countertops, we opened up several pockets of space that were formerly blocked by empty cabinetry. The clients chose our Sophia Line Cabinets with Euro construction, Slab horizontal doors, and a Sophia veneer. The sumptuous Black Artika finish is exclusive to our Sophia Line, giving the cabinets a look that can be found nowhere else on the market. Naraghi Frosted Mirror glass doors up the sophistication with a pale matte look that ties in well with the crisp Pental Super White Honed Quartz countertops with 1 ½” Navid edge.  All of the handles and drawer pulls chosen for the cabinets have a minimalistic shape and stainless steel finish, keeping with the new modern theme. In the back left corner, a full height cabinet casing was built for the refrigerator, and next to it, a large pantry cupboard with roll-out trays and deep shelves for ultimate storage space.


Thermador supplied many of the new appliances, including the Thermador Topaz 24” Dishwasher and Thermador 30” Masterpiece Series Single Oven with Professional Handle, both placed next to the kitchen’s two Artisan Chef Pro Undermount Sinks with apron fronts and stainless steel finishes. Also from Thermador is the Thermador Professional Series 36” Porcelain Rangetop which was augmented with a pull-up Dacor Renaissance Epicure 36” Raised Vent, and the 18” Freezer Column paired with a 30” Built-In Fresh Food Column to create an oversized refrigerator. San Clemente Black & White Modern G-Shaped Kitchen Remodel with Sophia Line Cabinets San Clemente Black & White Modern G-Shaped Kitchen Remodel with Sophia Line Cabinets A GE Profile 1.1 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave is set into the cabinetry above the oven. To the left in the bar area, a U-Line Origins Refrigerator, Wine Captain and Beverage Center was sunk beneath the countertop and encased in the cabinetry, facing outward to rest beside the custom inset wall-shelving we built for the clients’ wine and liquor collection.

Kitchen Planning Pointers in Orange County

The kitchen is a room you spend a lot of time in. If it functions well, life is on track. If it's difficult to work in, you'll start and end your day stressed Kitchen Planning Pointers in Irvine Orange CountyBuilt-in dining table in the kitchen as part of planning your kitchen remodelDining area builtin as part of a kitchen remodel with an island in orange County California With today's emphasis on casual living, cooking and eating habits have changed and the kitchen design reflects this. For a start, there is less need for a separate dining room — today's kitchen is often an open-plan space that's being made to perform a multitude of tasks, such as entertain friends, supervise the children's homework and run the house as ‘the family business’. To make the best use of your space, identify all the activities that will take place there, both cooking and non-cooking, and then allocate the zones. Food Perparation area in a kitchen remodeling & planning pointers in Laguna Hills Orange County Food preparation Preparing and eating food is the center of the action in a kitchen. Try to gear the design of this area to the type of food being prepared: fresh and fast warrants long countertops with easy access to the fridge and freezer. Worth considering, too, is how many cooks there will be in the kitchen. Plan the countertop storage so it can take knives, chopping boards and utensils. Food storage should be only a step away. Cooking with Stove Top in a kitchen remodel and planning pointers in Laguna Beach CaliforniaCooking Area and planning & design of kitchen remodel in Newport beach californiaLuxury High end kitchen remodel showing the cooking area with high end stovetop in Laguna Beach California Cooking This zone depends entirely on your preferred cooking style. Today, there's more emphasis on grilling food, as well as wok and stovetop cooking, and the consequent multi-burners and indoor barbecues have expanded the potential of the cooking zone. Singles and the time-poor can get by with only a cooktop and microwave, but if you cater for more than five people or you like to entertain, give space to at least one oven or a heavy-duty range. Designing an eating area in Kitchen Planning & remodel pointers in Laguna Niguel Orange countyDesign & Plan eating area in a kitchen remodel Irvine orange county Eating area Open-plan blurs the boundaries between food preparation and eating areas, so you may want to give back a degree of privacy to the dining area. Consider locating the table away from the mainstream of kitchen activity or partially screening it from the view of people moving through the open space. Locate a cupboard for storing glasses, china and so on near the dining table. And before you buy a dining table remember to measure it to make sure it will fit in the room. Cleaning up - Kitchen Planning & Remodeling Pointers in Orange CountySelecting a custom sink for a kitchen remodel & planning in Laguna Beach Orange County Cleaning up Washing up becomes easier if you choose a sink or dishwasher based on the amount of cleaning up you generally do. Even with a dishwasher, you'll still need a deep sink for washing pots and large platters. To move and work comfortably, allocate up to 1 ½ feet of space on the active side of the sink and above the dishwasher. If you install a smaller rinsing sink as well, this will extend the space. The sink area itself demands lower cabinet storage for cleaning supplies, perhaps a bin for food scraps and a container for recycling cans and glass. Entertaining Zone Integerated in part of planning & designing kitchen remodel in Newport Beach Orange County Entertaining zone Today, the question of where to entertain is answered quite simply: in the kitchen. Bound up as it is with an increasingly informal style of eating, the kitchen can be dressed up or down, depending on the party. If you enjoy giving cocktail parties, assign the breakfast bar another job. If you have large gatherings, make the focus of your entertaining the dining table and extend the mood to other areas of the living space. For television viewing, restrict the size and position of the set so it doesn't intrude when guests are around. And if you're the consummate entertainer, allocate storage for wine, a drinks cabinet and a spot for CDs, DVDs and videos. Design & Plan storage area for a kitchen remodel in Aliso Viejo Orange CountyStorage space planning & design in a kitchen remodel San Clemente Orange County Storage Appropriate storage should be planned around the activity zones of sink, cooktop and fridge. Plan a mix of cabinets, shelves, drawers and cupboards. Storage requirements essentially depend on whether you like eating in or eating out. If you cook with plenty of fresh produce, you may not need a large pantry, but you will need storage areas away from the hot and steamy cooktop. For the busy family or the convenience cook, a well laid out pantry is imperative. Functional storage is all about organization and access; when starting from scratch, sit down and make a list that includes absolutely everything you'll want to store in your kitchen. Planning a breakfast area in a kitchen remodel Orange County IrvineBreakfast area as part of an Island in a kitchen design & remodel in southern california Breakfast breakfasting in the kitchen is more than a lifestyle choice; often it's the place where the family gathers before leaving home for the day. Plan the location of the table early on when designing your kitchen. Consider the best source of natural light and make sure the spot is out of the traffic route. If you have children, include a breakfast bar in the L-shaped or open-plan layout of your kitchen. An island bench under which stools can be tucked is just as good. But if morning rush hour means breakfast on the run, just allocate a food take out space at the end of a countertop. Planning for a kitchen remodel in Irvine Orange County FridgePlanning & placement of the fridge in a custom kitchen remodel in Orange County Aliso Viejo Cooling Cold food storage is a lynchpin of the modern kitchen. Before you buy a fridge or freezer, look at whether your cooking is focused on fresh foods or convenience foods; how often you freeze meals; and whether you shop daily, weekly or less often. No matter how big or small your fridge/freezer is, make sure it's only a step from the food preparation area and can be easily accessed. And if you want a bigger combined fridge/freezer, remember to allocate enough floor space. Under-the-countertop fridges or ones integrated into the cabinets are less flexible but more discreet. planning & designing Working Station & computer desk in a custom kitchen remodel Planning & designing a working office study desk into kitchen remodelCustom working station study desk in a kitchen remodel & design of orange county california Communications This zone usually evolves by accident, not design. The kitchen is the center of the home, and it's where you chat and leave messages for other household members, so consider the advantages of a dedicated communication station here. Set out of the main traffic route, it's where you can make phone calls in peace and recharge mobiles, receive faxes, use the computer to e-shop, and find keys, shopping lists and school notes in a hurry. A corner spot or a small table is ideal, but remember to factor in the position of power points and cables and storage for disks and stationery.
