Nestled in the rolling hills of Eastern San Francisco lies the quaint town of Moraga. Quiet, safe, and semi-rural, Moraga is a family-friendly suburb with an old town charm.
These renovations took place in a cozy townhome located on the Moraga Country Club. The 1,552 square foot house was built in 1979 and features 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a brand-new kitchen.
Remodeled by Mark Hoogs of Turn Appeal Inc., the kitchen is bright, clean, and well-balanced. Sunlight streams in through the windows, creating clear lines of sight into the living and dining areas. With its white cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, the space conveys a sense of elegance and timelessness with a modern touch.
A simple kitchen island provides a functional space for meal and snack preparation. Its modest-yet-comfortable size allows room for easy maneuvering around the space.
“We’re often asked by clients to create these great big islands,” said kitchen designer Shannon Burch. “But it’s important to have the proper amount of walk space to be able to function around the island.”
Finished in CliqStudios Carbon, the island adds an arresting color accent to the kitchen. “It’s a twist on a classic,” said Burch, who also points out the full-wall backsplash and the recessed tray ceiling. Both of these unique design features draw the eyes upward, emphasizing the height of the room. The space, painted in a cool blue-gray, feels airy and uncluttered.
The transitional style of the kitchen is carried throughout the house. Both bathrooms show matching vanities that echo the design of the kitchen island. With its welcoming color palette and thoughtful styling, the house will remain attractive for many years to come.
