Many Hawaii homeowners have mastered the art of functioning in small spaces. Out of necessity, some have turned a portion of their kitchen area into a makeshift dining room, DIY office or temporary study room. Others have found space in a bedroom to store small kitchen appliances and paper goods.

For a more permanent, efficient and attractive solution to everyday space challenges, homeowners are turning to the design-build experts at HK Construction to reimagine their kitchens and bathrooms for maximum function. Multifunctional rooms that combine tasks can maximize limited square footage, a welcomed possibility as we spend more time at home.


According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association, the industry projects 16 percent growth in 2021. Many will seek smart room combinations when remodeling. An underutilized kitchen wall can be transformed into a dining nook with built-in bench seating or a well-designed office/study space. Adding an island or peninsula can create much-needed seating for family and guests. Thinking outside the box, a food pantry might be added to a nearby laundry room for additional kitchen storage.

A laundry and bathroom combination can free up space elsewhere in the home, as a carefully designed recess neatly houses a full-size washer and dryer. Those with ample space find that combining a dressing room with their master bath adds a whole new level of convenience and luxury. HK Construction, a fourth-generation kamaaina company, can help homeowners make the most of their spaces.

To start your path to smart kitchen and bath remodels, attend a complimentary HK Construction seminar in March. Several seminars are held at its Honolulu office each week, including Saturdays. For your safety, seating is limited and HK Construction follows strict cleanliness and social distancing practices. Registration is required; no walk-ins allowed.
