When Chris came to LOCZIdesign, we sent him to Renee Naleppa, our Virtual Design specialist. His project was a dream come true for any interior designer — a brand new, blank slate. The recently purchased home was furnished with very little other than the bare necessities for this bachelor computer engineer. He had the basics, like a television, bean bag, fold-up chair and bed.

Ahhh, the kitchen. Possibly one of the hardest places to remodel in your entire home. It comes with its challenges but when done right, can be a complete game changer for the way you live. Peppered in this remodel journal are some guiding tips we hope will inspire you to create the kitchen you desire, without the headache.

A place where you remove the impurities of the day, primp, hastily get ready for work, or have the occasional pep talk in front of your mirror.

Either way it’s where you let go and bare it all to return to your natural state.
