The story features a home that was cramped for space, but W.L. Construction was able to transform all while maintaining the home’s passive solar design.
Whether you’ve recently purchased a home and want to remodel the kitchen, or it has been years since you’ve had work done to your home’s kitchen and you’re ready for something new, there are several exciting luxury remodeling options that will have your kitchen looking its best.
When you’ve made the decision to remodel but don’t know where to begin, make sure to explore a few luxury kitchen options that include a classic kitchen look with neutral colors, something a bit more modern or a craftsmen kitchen that features real wood.
Between these three luxury kitchen types, you’re sure to find something that matches the look and feel of your home and something that your family and friends will love spending time in.
Go for the classic
When you choose a classic kitchen for your remodeling project, you’ll be getting something that has the timeless feel you desire while also having fresh elements for a truly unique space.
Classic kitchens often feature white or neutral colors and don’t go over the top with architectural details. Classic countertops will typically be black granite or quartz, white marble depending on your design preferences.
Another common feature of a classic kitchen is white “subway tile” which goes great with the white cabinets and white marble countertops.
If your design preferences are less subtle, a modern kitchen is for you. Modern kitchens are great because there are really no set rules for how they should look.
The color palette you can choose from for cabinets and other features is expanded and you can choose from a wide range of countertop materials, backsplash designs and more.
As the name suggests, you can add modern-looking cabinets, unique islands with a wide range of designs, pull-out drawers that can store cold drinks and many more modern features.
Choose a craftsmen kitchen
Craftsmen kitchens are a popular luxury option for those going for a more natural feel in their kitchen.
Cabinetry, drawers and islands are typically made from real wood in a craftsmen kitchen, with muted countertops that blend well with the wood.
Similar to a modern kitchen, craftsmen kitchens will typically feature more unique backsplashes and you can get a bit more creative with the way your islands are designed.

An outdoor kitchen is a great option for those who enjoy spending time with family and friends in the open air. Whether you want something simple to prep, cook and eat at or you want to create a unique space that will wow visitors, the options are nearly endless.
Today, it isn’t surprising to see bars, wood-fire ovens, prep areas and appliances added to outdoor kitchens to make them on par with any traditional kitchen.
When you’re interested in adding an outdoor kitchen to your home, take a look at some of the more popular designs of late to get your creative juices flowing.
Add an island, prep area
An island or prep area placed next to the grill will make it easy to prepare meals and dish items out once they’ve been cooked.
With these two areas, you will have the ability to layout all the ingredients for your cookout and have access to them as you cook your meal.
This will also come in handy when you have taco night or another meal where you want to have a bunch of toppings spread out for your family or guests.
Consider adding a bar to your grill area
One of the more popular designs in recent years has been the adding of a bar to a grill area. If you have an outdoor kitchen, or are in the process of building one, you can extend it at the top or sides to create a comfortable and fun bar space.
This will be the perfect space for family parties or entertaining friends.
Mix things up with a pizza oven
Wood-fire ovens have seen a rise in popularity over the last few years but are now being added to outdoor kitchens for a slightly different reason.
If you prefer a fresh pizza over grilled meats, the adding of a wood-fire pizza oven will be an exciting edition to your outdoor kitchen. We recommend this if you have kids, as it can be a lot of fun for them to assist with making dinner or at parties with friends.
Add appliances, storage space
An indoor kitchen wouldn’t be complete without appliances, and your outdoor kitchen shouldn’t be any different. In the last few years more and more people have been adding appliances such as refrigerators, mini coolers, dish washers and more to their outdoor space.
It’s also suggested to add storage space where you can store glasses and plates once they have been washed.
If you’re interested in adding a new outdoor kitchen to your home, or need one remodeled, we invite you to reach out to our experienced team at W.L. Construction. We have been assisting home and business owners with their remodeling and construction needs for over 40 years and looking forward to lending a hand with your new outdoor kitchen or other project.

Black is quickly turning into the new white for kitchens. Although it may seem too dark for your room, black goes with virtually everything and is a great color to incorporate throughout your home. No matter the style of your kitchen, black features can easily be incorporated.
Whether you’re looking to add a statement feature, or you wish to incorporate small black details to your home, here are some ideas for incorporating this gorgeous, deep color into your kitchen:
Black Floors Paired with Warm Toned Walls
If you’re looking to turn your kitchen into a cozy area of your home, consider staining your floors black. Dark floors paired with white cabinetry and a warmer painted wall can make your kitchen feel taller and cozier. Encourage natural lighting to shine through your kitchen windows by adding bright window shades too!
Add Black Appliances to Make a Statements
Black appliances stand out in the kitchen like no other. They look sleek, clean, and pair well with many colors. If you want your kitchen to catch your guests’ attention, consider pairing your shiny black appliances with pale painted kitchen color and brass hardware.
Colors like white, pale aqua, green, and grey are great examples of colors that pair well with black appliances.
Mix Black and Copper
If you’d consider your aesthetic to be more colonial inspired, consider adding hints of copper to your black cabinetry to complete your aesthetic. Copper also pairs well with stainless steel appliances and, when used together, creates a gorgeous kitchen design.
Black is a powerful color. If you love the idea of incorporating dark features into your kitchen, but you’re not ready to fully commit to changing the color of your kitchen, start small by incorporating a few statement pieces. Installing a sleek black sink on top of your white marble countertops is a great place to start! As darker kitchens start becoming more popular, you can find nearly any kitchen appliance in black, so there is plenty of ways that you can experiment.
Black Lower Cabinets Paired with White Tiled Floors
Glossy white tiled floors pair perfectly with black cabinets. To help open your kitchen, consider installing lower cabinets and use open shelves above your countertops for extra storage. Having a high-gloss finish on your cabinets and floors will also help maximize the light in your space.
Start Transitioning Your Kitchen Today
There’s a lot to think about when you start the beginning steps of building a new home. However, one of the best parts about building a new home is that you can customize it however you’d like. When designing your dream house, you can use your creativity to add some cool features to your home.
Here are some construction ideas that you can add to your new build:
Add Built-In Shelving
You can never go wrong with adding shelving to your home. There’s no better time to add extra storage to your home than during a custom build. Consider installing built-in shelves for a sleek and spacious way to organize and decorate your room.
Install Higher Ceilings
If you’re looking for a way to open up your home, consider installing higher ceilings. High ceilings also give your home a more luxurious feel and appearance. If you enjoy decorating with wall art, having high ceilings will help make those finishing touches stand out and look more dramatic.
Add a Mudroom
As you’re designing your new home, consider everything that you might want/needs. Many new home builders love installing mudrooms in their new homes, so they have a place to store coats and muddy shoes without having to trudge through the main parts of your home. Luckily, if you’re on a tighter budget, mudrooms don’t need to be that big. Even just a small, closet-sized space can make a world of difference.
Create an Upstairs Laundry Room
When you’re building your new home, keep convenience in mind. You frequently use your laundry room, so it makes sense to consider building one on the second floor of your home. Having the convenience of a laundry room on the second floor will save you fewer trips lugging baskets up and down the stairs.

There is no better time to change up your home than the start of a new year! As we get closer to the new year, it’s time to start thinking about the latest home renovation trends for 2021.
Check out a few of the predicted 2021 renovation trends:
Your kitchen can become quite chaotic when too many people are in there. Your kitchen, however, should have the opposite effect. It should be a place where you can relax, unwind, and spend time creating and experimenting with different dishes. That’s why multi-zone kitchens are becoming more and more popular.
Multi-zone kitchens have two access points, so no one gets trapped in or blocked from entering the kitchen. There might even be dedicated areas for baking, prepping, and separate stations for those to eat in this kitchen layout.
One of the biggest remodeling trends for the new year will be incorporating light woods throughout the home. It will be common to find light woods used on your walls, ceilings, and floors. Because shades of navy blue are predicted to be a popular color scheme among households in the new year, adding light wood accents will help create an elegant and contemporary look.
Stylish Home Offices and Nooks
This year, many of us had to make a quick adjustment to start working from home. And because there are still plenty of people working and participating in virtual learning, family members of all ages would benefit from having a productive workspace in the home. If you haven’t dedicated a place to work within your home, it’s time to do so!
For years, following a monochromatic color scheme has been the trend, but this year, you’ll have more room to experiment. Two-toned cabinets are predicted to become popular in 2021.
Homeowners can try out this trend by painting cabinets installed in one area different colors. For example, you can paint the overhead cabinets one color and your sink base cabinets another. This trend will be popular among household kitchens and bathrooms!

If you’re looking for a way to add value to your home, consider renovating your bathroom. Your bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your home, so it’s important to focus on renovations that will serve you and your family for years!
If you’re ready to take the next steps to remodel your bathroom this year, consider making one of these changes to improve your bathroom’s functionality and comfort.
Upgrade Your Bathrooms Hardware
Are your faucets and drawer knobs outdated? Replacing your bathroom hardware with current design trends can make your bathroom look flawless and brand new. Gold accents, brushed metals, stainless steel, and nickel are all popular hardware choices.
Add Additional Shelving Everywhere
Built-in storage in your bathroom is one of the most functional additions you can make! Everyone always loves when rooms have additional storage. If you have a master bathroom, try adding shelves between the sink. It’s the perfect solution to help you keep clutter off of your counter, store your everyday items, and adds style!
You can add additional hooks to your sink or the back of a shelf to increase storage space. It’s also the perfect place to hang bath towels, hand towels, or robes!
Update Your Shower
You use your shower every day, so it’s worth making it stand out. You can start by upgrading your bathroom tile. In recent remodels, clients, add tiles with matte finishes, steel gray colors, and fun geometric shapes.
You can also use this opportunity to add the sleek sliding glass doors or the shower bench you always envisioned.
Are You Going to Use a Bathtub?
If you enjoy taking baths, it’s worth the investment to add a soaking tub into your bathroom. However, if you don’t typically enjoy using your current bathtub, it may be time to remove it. Bathtubs take up a lot of space in your bathroom, so remove it and use the space for something else if you don’t plan to use it.
Keep in mind that bathtubs also provide amazing spa-like relaxation. If you plan to put your house on the market soon, you may want to consider adding a bathtub.

As the housing market becomes more competitive, it can be hard to find the home of your dreams. Recently, there has been a stronger desire for families to look into custom building their homes. A brand-new home has plenty of advantages and is worth the time and energy it takes to build it!
Here are a few of the many benefits of building a custom home:
Building Allows for Personalization
The biggest advantage to building your home is that you can personalize it exactly the way you want. Often, when homes are pre-built, making affordable changes that suits your needs can be challenging. However, when you build your home, no decision is out of your control!
Creating a Custom Floor Plan
When you purchase a pre-existing home, you will likely have to make significant changes such as knocking down walls if you want to change your floor plan. This process usually involves spending a lot of time, money, and effort to get exactly what you want.
When you’re custom building your home, you can choose how big or small you want each room to be. Also, you can pre-determine the location of each room in your home. So, if you wish for the master bedroom to be on the first floor of your home, you can do that!
Increasing in Privacy in the Home
Everyone loves their privacy, and designing your home allows you to create the highest levels of privacy possible. Everything is in your control, so if you want to add architectural features to make you feel more comfortable, you can. Also, you have the flexibility to add features such as trees and privacy fences to increase privacy in your yard.
Building a New Home Can Be Less Costly
Regardless, if you’re buying a home, it’s going to be a significant investment. Although purchase an older home may seem like a cheaper option, sometimes older homes require a lot more maintenance and repairs than a custom-build home. There is much more relief building a brand new house because you won’t have to worry about fixing time and money consuming foundational problems.
