Sometimes there comes a point when you are ready to say “goodbye” to your old kitchen because you’ve had enough of being closed off from guests or dealing with cabinets that don’t make sense.  That’s how it was for Jamie.  Her dream was an open floor plan with an island to easily entertain. Wish granted.  

Our LifeDesign™ Process: Notes From Our Homeowner

“AMEK had such good ideas on how to include an island, more cabinets, and open floor plan; so we could get rid of our 1980s kitchen,” Jamie says.  “AMEK was fantastic to work with.  I just knew my needs and wants and Matt and his team figured it out. I really appreciated their expertise. When I would ask about something; they would explain the pros and cons, so I would understand why it might not work because of something I hadn’t even thought about.”


Jamie, adds, “There are so many details I like – how the drawers are customized to keep everything organized, how well AMEK blended old and new wood floor pieces, and the how the dining room china cabinet was added so I can now see my treasured family dishes. This remodel has changed everything about how we live in our home.”
