Today’s homeowners want a home that combines the kitchen, breakfast room, and family room to create an open floor plan for easy living and a spacious feel. These homeowners wanted all that and more, along with a sophisticated, timeless look. The custom built-ins along the fireplace wall created balance with the kitchen on the opposite end and provided much-needed storage for audio/video components and gaming systems. Both rooms were united for a cohesive, open floor plan feel. Clean, simple lines with beaded inset trim details on the fireplace and built-ins aligned with the couple’s contemporary yet traditional tastes. The design inspiration was created from houzz ideabook and then modified for the space.

Liston Design Build did an excellent job on our kitchen/family renovation.They spent the time with us needed to get a good feel for what we really wanted and envisioned and then translated it to our house. They gave us different options to work within our budget and thought of potential “issues” before they happened. The craftsmanship was on our family room built-ins was amazing and is exactly what we wanted. Keith and Jeanne make an excellent team to work with. Jeanne is fabulous with design ideas, pulling it all together, helping the Client “see” what will be done and came over whenever I needed a consult. Keith was also available with any questions at any time and made the project come to fruition just as we discussed. I’d highly recommend Liston Design Build Co., masterful craftsmanship, great customer service, a pleasure to work with, and most importantly, a beautiful end product!
