Project Spotlight January 2023

Once you see this amazing kitchen transformation, you’ll want to remodel your own kitchen!

APiD was contacted by a McKinney couple, who were soon to be empty-nesters, a few months before sending their last child off to college. This project was an extensive remodel which involved the removal of load-bearing walls and support columns.

The previous kitchen was dark and closed-off to the family room, and with the help of our structural engineers, APiD removed the load-bearing wall and the support column to fully open the kitchen to the family room.


The wood floors were continued into the kitchen to eliminate the transition between the two rooms. The kitchen cabinetry was designed to extend to the ceiling with glass doors to maximize storage, as well as create space to display pieces.

The existing pantry was removed and redesigned to look like a tall cabinet from the outside, however, once you open the door, a full walk-in pantry is hidden behind the cabinet door.

Along the perimeter of the kitchen, we selected creamy white cabinets with satin brass cabinet hardware and glass doors. The island and vent hood were painted a rich shade of blue that adds a sophisticated pop of color. Accents of gold give this kitchen a modern, yet classic feel.

If you notice, electrical outlets and light switches are nowhere to be found on the beautiful backsplashes, which were by intentional design. Leathered quartzite countertops with a mix of quartzite and marble mosaic tile backsplashes were chosen and installed.

Hidden spice shelves with sliding quartzite doors were custom designed and fabricated behind the Viking 48-inch range for functionality without taking away from the beautiful overall design of the kitchen.

There are many hidden features designed throughout this kitchen and we will be sharing all of those on our Instagram page soon, including a walk-through of this kitchen.
