Eugene Kitchen Remodel
This Eugene kitchen remodel features stylish cabinets, luxurious stone and high efficiency lighting.
William and Luann loved the views and layout of their 12 year old Eugene contemporary home. What they didn’t like was the kitchen. William, who usually goes by “Duke,” wanted to spiff up the existing kitchen and change the locations of the appliances to encourage better flow.
The original kitchen was also lacking in style, fit, and finish, and starting to show wear. The challenge for Neil Kelly Design Consultant Matt White was to update the kitchen and make it more usable.
“It was important to incorporate a refined, contemporary Craftsman style using high quality products, so we chose stylish cabinets with a conversion varnish finish,” White says. “We mixed granite and engineered stone and chose to add high efficiency LED lighting throughout the kitchen.”

Before they could update finishes in the kitchen project, the Neil Kelly crew had to find new homes for the awkwardly placed appliances.
“We relocated the new refrigerator so the doors would open easily and the homeowner could maneuver through the work area more efficiently,” White says. “We enlarged the island giving more space for the family of five to come together and allowing a separation between the kitchen workspace,” he says.
Speaking of the island, notice the contrast between the Verde Karzi granite countertop capping the island and the Lagos Blue Caesarstone seen in the kitchen’s perimeter countertops.
“Matt’s design work was insightful and the finished product is gorgeous,” says Duke. “Now the quality of the kitchen is in line with the rest of our Craftsman-featured home.”
Duke has a demanding job, and it was crucial for this active family to have the project done on schedule. “We lived in the home during the remodel,” Duke says. “Neil Kelly employees were not only respectful of our space and time, but they stayed on schedule and under budget.”
