When our homeowner asked Tri-Lite Builders to redesign the kitchen to make it more functional, efficient and

family-friendly, our first challenge was how to replace the lighting that the bay window provided after it was removed. The final design incorporated two uniquely shaped windows placed high above the room, utilizing the vaulted space near the ceiling. We also removed walls around the kitchen to create an open kitchen floor plan and infuse more light from adjacent rooms. The removal of the bay window then allowed us to creatively redesign that space for a contemporary range hood and backsplash design that became the focal point of this completely modernized the kitchen with it's new expanded floor plan.
The backsplash for the range was created with thousands of multi-colored unique glass tiles in various blended shades to create this beautiful feature wall. Numbered for placement, these tiles -- with hand applied 24-karat gold leaf between two layers of glass -- give a dark-to-light effect. The backsplash goes up the wall and highlights the sleek, European-style, stainless steel range hood with four halogen lamps that extends down from the ceiling, while also complementing the cabinetry on both sides.
We made numerous modifications to our homeowners' kitchen to accommodate their needs, such as removing a wall to open up the kitchen to the rest of the home; installing a functional new island with an abundance of storage space and seating area; installing all new contemporary kitchen cabinetry, counters, appliances, lighting, windows and fixtures; and modifying a wall on the far side of the kitchen to open the floor plan..
