From Cherry Kitchen to Stunning Design

Jeff and Jen thought they were onto something cute when they designed their cherry themed kitchen to mask their very dated, cramped space. With a drop ceiling, low counters and faux red brick walls their kitchen belongs in a storybook, not a young couples home. Luxury Miami homebuilder Luis Bosch demolishes the entire kitchen to create a modern, functional design that works for their social lifestyle. With new dark wood cabinets, a stainless back splash, a custom-made hydraulic table that changes from a dining table to a coffee table and banquette seating, this kitchen is no longer an embarrassment, but a stunning room for both dining and lounging.
