Happy Place

Location: Beaverton, OR

The ideal renovation recipe.

When tackling a big project like renovating their 1940s galley kitchen, this savvy DIY couple wanted to outsource and hire the professionals. Their small Beaverton kitchen had lived its life and needed to be functional for this couple who enjoy cooking and baking. The kitchen cart and dishwasher on wheels had to go, and they thoughtfully decided on a permanent layout that made the best use of the space. The couple was clear on what they wanted and why they wanted it from the start, which made for a great collaboration and smooth project execution.
