Beat the Heat
Home project cools, increases ventilation in client’s kitchen
Some people say, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” Unfortunately, for many homeowners in Hawaii, this is exactly what they want to do because of the heat and lack of ventilation. The small, confined kitchens that many Island homes were built with often ruin the enjoyment of cooking. One local family from Kailua turned to CS Design Builders for help.
“When we’re cooking for the family, the kitchen is about 20 degrees hotter than the rest of the house!” said the Brogans during their free initial measure and estimate with the company. Even worse, the original homeowner’s poor planning placed the appliances and cabinetry in odd places, causing family members to bump into each other while trying to move around in the kitchen at the same time. The oddly placed items also wasted useful countertop space. CS Design Builders took these problems into account when working with the Brogans during their free computer design session.
After the project was finished, visitors were amazed at the transformation. The difference was so dramatic that many of the family’s friends thought the Brogans had expanded the kitchen by several feet in each direction. The new kitchen is an expansive space that was integrated into the rest of the home by removing walls to open up the room. This created a beautiful continuous room, eliminated the overheating problem and made the kitchen more ergonomic and functional. Gorgeous granite countertops complement stainless-steel appliances, and the new hood keeps the kitchen air fresh, even while cooking.
The family is more engaged with one another with their new kitchen opened up to the rest of the home. They also are able to move around more easily.
“Sometimes you need to open up space to bring a family closer together,” said the Brogans. It’s ironic, but true.
