Custom Home Remodel Los Altos

Remodel West completed this Los Altos home remodel in 2012. This project consisted of a full remodel of the kitchen, laundry room and bathroom with an addition to the living room and an indoor/outdoor living area.


The kitchen was designed to serve the needs of a busy family with the expectation of some entertaining in their future. The overall design inolves two different cabinet finishes provided by Crystal Cabinets. The perimeter of the kitchen is a slab door style with a custom finish, while the outside of the island, floating shelves and ceiling design is a slab door style with a standard darker finish. The cabinetry facing the living room matches the entertainment center designed for the family room. Countertop

This project used a total of three different materials for the countertop. The main workspace in the kitchen is a Caeserstone product. This is used for both the perimeter and island in the kitchen, including the extension of the island intended as a bar style eating area. The second material is another quartz product from Chroma. This is used as the raised island countertop and for the entertainment center in the family room. The third material is found in the laundry room and bathroom and is a limestone. Flooring/Tile

There are a couple items to feature in this category. The first is the flooring installed throughout most of the remodeled space. Remodel West has noticed a growing trend with cork flooring. Cork is a natural product and considered to be one of the most comfortable flooring options. In the kitchen we installed a back-painted glass backsplash tile; one of the very last decisions during the design process! In the bathroom a limestone field tile was installed with a decorative mosaic. For the indoor/outdoor fireplace a textured ceramic tile was designed to border the interior fireplace and a glass mosaic on the exterior to complement the pool tile.
