Classic Kitchen Remodel in Gainesville

What do you do when your house is beautiful, but your Kitchen is a throwback to the 1970’s? Call Evans Construction & Design to renovate!

We had the pleasure of working with a wonderful Gainesville family to renovate their entire Kitchen, Breakfast Nook and Dining Room. They live on a beautiful little lake in Gainesville, surrounded by lemon and orange trees. Picturesque! The home is great, but the Kitchen…it could use a little, umm, improvement. A wonderful family like this deserves a great Kitchen, right? We can help!



The before.


The inspiration.

Classic, fresh, clean. The client loved this Kitchen and we worked to recreate the feel for them.


The plan.

Add two windows, rip out interior walls, fill in an oddly placed exterior door and open up the space. We would remove the current nook, add an oversized island with seating and move their current table to the adjacent Dining Room. While we’re here, lets redo the fireplace and adds some seating that swivels to the TV and Kitchen.


The renderings.


The selections.

After collaborating with the clients (who were an absolute pleasure, I must add), we tweaked the design, made our final selections and started demo. They left town for a week and we got all the messy part out of the way, and it was messy. We filled in a door and busted out cinderblock for 2 new windows. New wood floor was added and stained to tie into the existing flooring throughout. The renovation moved quickly and the final result is incredible, if I do say so myself! 🙂
