Lake Wylie Kitchen Remodel with Custom Wood Hood Vent

Project Overview

Being DIY-ers, the homeowners regularly tackled small home improvements. For their kitchen, they sought our professional input to create their dream space. The previous kitchen felt outdated and confined. After discussing their goals, they expressed wanting to enhance functionality and aesthetics while preserving the home's original charm. We fully gutted the previous kitchen, removed the soffit and installed shaker white cabinetry to the new ceiling height. Every golden accent was intentionally placed throughout the kitchen to create an elevated design.

"Remodeling our kitchen was top priority when we moved into our dated 80s house. We researched numerous contractors in the area and luckily found DGK through social media. We contacted numerous client references they provided us and all spoke so highly of their service and work product - we were sold and begun the design process! Their team is patient and so responsive - as kitchens are so detailed oriented, they keep you on track with organized timelines and recommendations for sourcing materials. From design to completion they ensure you are happy with their work and communicate frequently. The build process was seamless and finishing work was top quality. We have already engaged them for another project - and look forward to continuing our remodels with DGK as our preferred contractor."

Challenges & Solutions


Keep the original charm of home while simultaneously creating a modernized space.


While designing the space, our client desired to preserve as much of the home’s natural charm along with creating more of an open concept. One of the ways we did this was by keeping the wood trim around the patio doors and the stone wall.


Create custom hood vent fillers for a fully finished look.


During hood vent installation, we noticed a lack of interior fillers. Our team located a suitable wood resembling the hood vent and stained it to complement the color. This played a significant role in achieving a polished and finished look for the hood.
