This kitchen remodeling started with an all new room layout, by removing middle partitions that divided the dining and cooking area we combined the rooms into an open space layout. With the elimination of the walls and installation of a new larger window, we allowed more light to come into the house. All new custom-wood kitchen cabinets in two tones of beige for the hood and the island and dark cherry for all other cabinets were installed. Tumbled travertine tiles were installed for the back-splash, and matte-finish seashell limestone counters were installed for both cabinets and the center island. A beam molding, protruding down from the ceilings defining the slopes and angles, was constructed and stained to match the kitchen cabinets and refinished wood floors. Porcelain plank tiles were installed from front door entrance throughout the kitchen area leading into the family room. These porcelain plank tiles are durable, withstand high heat, and also creates a clear definition for the couch and table areas.
This 20×24 pavilion was designed and built by Gappsi in Dix Hills, NY. We built it with 6 columns, all wrapped with synthetic wood and Azek. This outdoor structure allows the homeowners to enjoy their backyard in both sunny and rainy days. The pavilion not only looks elegant, but it’s also very functional and includes great amenities.
A wood burning fireplace is accompanied with a large screen TV and enough room for a comfortable couch area in front of it. Underneath the pavilion, we installed all Twin Eagle Appliances: a bar island with a sink, storage cabinets, and refrigerator; and we installed an outdoor changing room with a shower. The adjacent area is already set up for a future outdoor spa to be placed also.
All white trim, moldings, and maintenance-free paneling were used to veneer columns and ceiling. The fireplace and bar island were veneered with tumbled split face travertine veneers to match the travertine french pattern sealed patio throughout the pavilion and surrounding area. Gappsi supplied all the materials used in this project.
