They preserved most of the existing layout, but Andrew moved the placement of the range from the corner of the room to the center. This adjustment would allow space for two people to use both the sink and the range at the same time.

“I want every client that I deal with to get the best possible outcome,” he said. “I design every kitchen as if it were my own, so here I essentially did the same thing.”
Giving advice to new remodelers, Andrew emphasized the importance of patience and willingness to ask for help.
“Don’t rush into things. I’m here to help you get it right, so let’s take the time to make sure we get it right,” he said. “I can walk you through it. Don’t be afraid that it’s more than you can take on because most people can figure this out, and I can help you figure it out.”
