Here is a lovely kitchen remodel done with Elyse Frantz Shindelar in the Des Moines area. Some will recognize Elyse as a builder in the Iowa City area for many years some time ago. She relocated and reached out when she was ready for her own remodel. We are always thrilled to be a partner with loyal clients of the past!

This project started with wanting a new updated look for her fireplace. She wanted it lighter than the kitchen but wanted to have it look cohesive. We did cream for the fireplace with a dark mantle to carry in her existing kitchen cabinets then decided to do her uppers to match the fireplace leaving the original bases cabinets. A lot more storage and an updated look! Very happy client!

This was such a fun project and amazing clients. We called it the “penthouse” as it’s the top floor of a new building. Thank you Brandt’s for trusting KBD with your project!

What a fun remodel project on Olive Court in Iowa City. Homeowners were do it yourself ers... and did a great job installing cabinets with the design we created for them. Big difference from the before and after!
