Traditional, walled-off kitchens can often leave homeowners feeling trapped. That’s why we worked with this homeowner in Austin, Texas to maximize space. In order to do this, we removed the wall between the kitchen and living room to create a “Great Room” concept. Together we created a new layout that would open up the space in the kitchen and living room. The first step in this remodel was to remove the wall separating the kitchen and the living room. We then designed a new kitchen island in order to maximize countertop space.

We also worked with the homeowners to select the new cabinetry, countertops, and backsplash. We think they made an excellent decision, and it will stay this way with the lifetime warranties.

Project Details: Statewide Remodeling removed and replaced all cabinets, countertops, and backsplash.

The wall between the kitchen and living room was removed by Statewide Remodeling to create a “Great Room” concept and a new kitchen island was designed to maximize countertop space. The appliance locations were moved to accommodate the new kitchen layout. We also upgraded all of the lighting to recessed can lights and, per code, added multiple dedicated electrical lines for the appliances in the kitchen and upgraded the sub panel. A new support beam was added to the ceiling for structural support to accomplish the wall removal and the pre-existing soffits were removed so that the upper wall cabinets could be installed to the ceiling. All of the affected walls were repaired, re-textured and painted.

Statewide Remodeling also removed and replaced the kitchen sink and faucet.


We couldn’t be more thrilled with how this project turned out! Not only did we achieve a look that the homeowners love, but the kitchen will stay that way with the warranty guarantee provided by Statewide Remodeling!
