Kitchen Remodeling Project Portfolio

A new kitchen remodel will have a considerable impact on your quality of life. The kitchen is where family traditions are made, it's a gathering spot at parties, and it is often the room that gets the most use in your home. An outdated kitchen that functions poorly can be a constant source of irritation. Learn how we solve our clients design problems by viewing images, floor plans, and before and after photographs of our kitchen remodeling projects.

We were pleased with every aspect of our experience with Forward Design. From the start, we were impressed with their process; it’s obvious that they have done extensive remodeling jobs many times before. We met with designers in a structured set of meetings to determine the scope of the project, the features we needed, the materials we wanted to use, the final design and the project cost.

We’ve lived in this house for 25 years and investing in a beautiful interior design not only improved the value of our home, but renewed our enjoyment of the place in which we live. Not a day goes by but that one of us remarks on how much we love our new house.

Kitchen Relocation and Renovation Projects

There are times when the space needed to design a new kitchen is too small to accommodate our clients design dreams. In order to fulfill their wishes, we expand into an adjacent room or relocate the kitchen to an area better suited to the design they want. The kitchen renovation projects below illustrate circumstances where the kitchen has been moved to a different location or the floor plan has changed so that the kitchen compliments the home.

You can’t go wrong with these folks. From the outset, you can tell they are a quality company with thoughtful, compassionate, and most of all knowledgeable employees. They assign a master carpenter to the job along with a designer, and a full complement of people to make sure things are done right and on time (yes, they were exactly on time!).

But it doesn’t stop there, since their follow up goes for a full year after the job is done - and they do follow up! We can’t say enough good things about their work and you can just look at other contractor’s jobs to see how they are more than a step above the rest (one of the reasons we chose them in the first place).

They came up with a design that really worked and was completely different from anyone else’s (yes we checked out designers builders as well for over 2 years) and exactly fitted our lifestyle. We have been in the “new” house for 3 months at this point and it is performing way above expectations for having guests overnight, a cooking demonstration, and Christmas and family parties. The kitchen has worked fabulously and the house looks wonderful. They kept it in budget and kept us informed all the way through. It is like buying a new house that was designed especially for us, but, we could still keep our family house heritage. Forward you ROCK!
