Kitchen Design Story
Like the majority of designs, Erin from CliqStudios’ St. Louis Design Studio had to work through several revisions to accommodate very specific requests on this layout. Unlike the majority of kitchens CliqStudios designers create, this space had to work for a family of eight!!
It all started when the family’s remodeling professional contacted Erin for help and guidance on how best to plan out this family’s new kitchen. Scott Ide of Ide Building Co had worked with a local cabinet dealer one many previous jobs, but sadly that business had recently folded. Searching online for a new source of “…reasonably priced inset-style cabinets,” he soon found CliqStudios!
In one of Erin’s early designs, she and Scott had tried to use their current dining table. However, the dining area turned out to be too small to comfortably seat six kids and two adults. Fortunately, our “semi-custom” cabinetry system came to their rescue. Using the many flexible options from CliqStudios, Erin created a custom built-in banquet seat as part of her kitchen cabinet layout design.
The most unusual feature in this kitchen turned out to be the range hood. The client had found a very specific design that they had spotted on Pinterest. Using our Contempra Wood Range Hood, refrigerator side panels, a finished panel and molding, Erin was able to create a look that matched what they’d seen online. A truly custom and unusual request to be sure, and unlike one of our standard hoods, will require a bit of assembly on site.
