Contemporary Kitchen Transformation Suited for a Professional Chef

In the heart of the Silicon Valley, a family reached out to us though Houzz in need of more space and a major update. Our team at RemodelWest was tasked to create an additional bedroom, ½ bath, office, family room and kitchen worthy of a professional chef. With research, planning and organization we are able to provide a home that meets or exceeds our clients’ needs and requests while keeping in budget. We love our Houzz clients!

The brand new contemporary kitchen is leaps and bounds away from where it started… both in style and function. With playful forms and finishes, we created an individual reflection of today’s busy family. This clean and clutter free kitchen accommodates serious cooking and baking

The Value of Design

You can’t stand it any longer. You could be the typical home owner, thinking about remodeling your home for several years and you decided to pull the trigger. There is an anxiousness for some and anxiety for others. The cost? Who can I trust? Where do I go? The overwhelming insurmountable task at hand. There is an enjoyable method to creating your new home achieving not only a level of sanity but an end result that will improve the quality of your life. This is why I do this for a living. I enter a clients life for what seems like an eternity to them but really is a microscopic blip in time. Those that follow are left with a better life. Sound nice? If you don’t use what’s between your ears then look in the mirror when you

An Executives guide to remodeling your home.

Try searching for “steps to a successful remodel” and see how many sites there are to visit. It’s overwhelming, all over the map. While compiling this guide I’m making a few assumptions. You don’t have time to waste, want the framework to pursue a project, find the right person to do the work and quality is more important than budget. If this fits then you’ll find this guide helpful, if not then back to Google and search for “Steps to a miserable remodeling experience”.

Design
Do not under estimate the value of design and be prepared to invest in it. Quality starts here. You must have a completed set of drawings and specifications in order to build a quality project on time. It’s no different then any

Saratoga Custom Home Remodel

Review From Our Saratoga Client

RemodelWest turned my dream into a reality. Seriously.

We had been looking to buy a home for almost two years in Silicon Valley and couldn’t find the right mixture of neighborhood, function, design, and style. When I found a neglected house with good bones/potential in a great neighborhood, my mind went to work on the possibilities. I drew up what I wanted (not skilled at doing this sort of thing) and then started looking for a team I thought capable of doing the job. I talked to lots of different firms and contractors. I got the lowball estimates and outrageous estimates from firms that didn’t bother to understand the details of what was wanted. In the first meeting with the RemodelWest team, I knew I they

Saratoga Ranch Home Remodel

Saratoga Ranch Goes Under The Knife.

The re-creation of this typical rancher in Saratoga, California began with the homeowner’s clear and succinct vision.  A professional team comprised of a Silicon Valley High Tech Executive and advocate for a National Non-Profit, our clients were on a focused path to achieve their dream home.  Collecting and assembling the thoughts and ideas for a large scale remodel project can be so overwhelming and daunting that some just give up.  Not these busy professionals.  An emerging website at the time came to the rescue http://www.houzz.com/.  Here our clients discovered the style Modern Prairie and built upon that as we planned the project.  Not only did this site provide tools to capture and share their

Cupertino Homeowner Shares Hat Trick Remodeling Experience

 2/23/2014 See this review on Yelp We recently completed our third project with RemodelWest, starting with the master bathroom in 2003 and kitchen in 2005. This time around, they reconfigured a portion of our home to support two beautiful, new bathrooms. We returned to RemodelWest because we trust Bill Reid and his team to deliver the highest levels of professionalism, quality, and integrity, and we knew they would take care of us from beginning to end. And for the third time out of three, RemodelWest exceeded our expectations. In the early phase of the project, Bill patiently dedicated his energy to help us find a layout that would accommodate the needs of our growing family in a constrained space. Then the excellent…

Silver Creek San Jose Kitchen Remodel

Silver Creek San Jose Kitchen Remodel

Silver Creek family up the quality of their kitchen and entertainment. Setting at the base of the Silicon Valley foothills is a community called Silver Creek many of the homes were built in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and represent a contemporary track style home.  Clearly leaps and bounds from the original track boom of the 1960’s and 1970’s but one fact remains, builders just don’t invest in quality design and materials.  This home was no exception and the owners set their sights on remodeling this kitchen to bring the quality from a 5 to a 10. Here are the goals that were quickly outlined by our client and the team at RemodelWest went to work. As you can see this “vanilla” kitchen was just that…

Cozy Contemporary Remodel Willow Glen

Cozy Contemporary Kitchen Remodel

Coining the phrase “Cozy Contemporary” is our term for this kitchen designed and built by RemodelWest.  Over the course of five years the team at RemodelWest has helped this European couple transfer a modest size Willow Glen home into a modern display of design solutions and materials.  The latest undertaking involved taking a small closed in and dated kitchen towards a more desirable open plan kitchen with modern flair yet warm and comfortable to be in.  This remodel project involved moving an interior partition wall, opening the narrow doorway to a wide open space adjoining the Dining Room, relocating windows and reconstructing the ceiling to achieve the structural retrofitting required for an
