Like many homeowners, Lee Mei describes her kitchen renovation as “a long time coming.”
“We bought our house in 2003 and I thought I would get a new kitchen shortly thereafter,” Lee Mei shares. “It didn’t happen until 2018.”
After living with her current kitchen for 15 years, it was easy for her to identify what her remodeling goals would be.
“Our previous kitchen was small, outdated and had hardly any counter space to work with,” Lee Mei says. “It wasn’t functional. I was miserable when it was time to cook.”
Lee Mei wanted to move walls and add counter space to more easily serve and clean up after gathering with friends and family.
“Our main goal was to enlarge the kitchen by taking down the wall between our kitchen and dining room,” Lee Mei says. “Also we wanted more cabinet space. We wanted to be able to not have a traffic jam every time I cooked and my husband cleaned.”
