That’s Hot!!! This Davis Kitchen Does Contemporary

Well it had been a long time coming for this remodel.  Like many remodels, it can seem like years between the planning stage and the actual demo, and another year until completion.  The timeline for this remodel was no different.  These Davis homeowners approached Nar Bustamante, owner of Nar Fine Carpentry, in 2009, for assistance with their kitchen remodel.  They came with kitchen plans already in hand, but were disappointed with the proposed design and were in need of a different approach.  Nar, a remodeler, and designer at heart, took this opportunity and hit the ground running.

It isn’t often that you find clients with contemporary desires here in Sacramento, most of our clients have a traditional or craftsman lean.  We are seeing a shift in the past 2 years towards contemporary, but people are still afraid to take the plunge and be totally committed.  This project was perfect because we both spoke contemporary, not the cold, stark look, but warm contemporary, the kind that is comfortable (and livable).

Nar worked on materials selection, while I worked on space planning and cabinet layout.  It was the first true collaboration that Nar and I had done together.  And it truly turned out to be one of the most amazing kitchens that I have ever seen (if I do say so myself!  pat pat).  So here we are at the end of completion, and the end of 2011.  These Davis clients finally got their dream kitchen, and will have those dream holiday dinners and parties.  Another job well done by the team at Nar Fine Carpentry of Sacramento!

Modern, but for a real person! The warm and cool colors together make for a very comfortable combined kitchen/ family room. Thanks for the comment!
