Contemporary Kitchen

Alameda, California

This kitchen was designed to be highly efficient and to delight the client with colors she loves. Recycled glass tiles give richness to the backsplash over the counter. The existing concrete floor was stained in turquoises and sealed, adding to the personal, striking palette while saving the cost of materials and waterproofing that would have been required for a replacement.

Key pieces from the owners’ antique collection were incorporated into the otherwise modern kitchen design, including a Kitchen Maid Hoosier cabinet, and soda fountain chairs and table set.

Alexandra Sheets Saikley was highly recommended to me by the daughter of a good friend. I had been considering remodeling my kitchen/bathroom for many years, but I needed someone to help me put together a plan, help me with all of the choices involved and understand what I wanted. She was very sensitive to my needs and helped me through the process. Our collaboration on this project was a success. The following year I also called on Alexandra and she came through for me again. These rooms give me great pleasure. I would recommend her with confidence in her ability.
