Before & After Kitchen Remodel in Manhattan Beach
Updated: Jun 15, 2020
Our recent South Bay kitchen renovation created soothing beach vibes and tons of storage space.
At South Land Remodeling, we take immense pride in our work and love showing it off. This recent Manhattan Beach, CA, kitchen remodel is no exception. We transformed a drab, inefficient use of square footage into a sunlit oasis with cabinets galore and a nod to the nearby surf.
This home belongs to family who sought a beautiful, open concept in the kitchen and dining room, so they could gather. Another key concern was creating storage options that make life easier and more organized. With those objectives in mind, our kitchen designer and general contractor went to work fashioning a custom kitchen that would exceed the family’s expectations of design and craftsmanship.
This project was a complete kitchen remodel, including the attached dining area and backyard.
“[South Land Remodeling] did a great job, and I would highly recommend them to anyone doing a remodel.”

When we designed this 500-square-foot interior space, we wanted it to be airy, bright and statement-making (without being overly bold). We tore down walls to create an open concept and installed new windows, including a beautiful bay window above the sink and three skylights, all to bathe the room in California's natural light.
The kitchen’s serene tones perfectly meld together, from the custom gray cabinetry (by A to Z Kitchen Cabinets) to the room’s centerpiece: a 9-foot by 4-foot waterfall island cast in a unique blue-and-gray quartzite. That natural stone carries over to the countertops and above the stove, fashioning a lovely contrast to a surrounding backsplash of delightfully unconventional 3x8-inch white subway tiles. The tiles carry from the countertop to the ceiling for a high-end, sleek look.
Because storage was a big concern for the family, we created solutions that tripled the family’s kitchen-cabinet storage. To do so, we custom-designed the space for functionality and beauty, which included custom glass cabinet doors and three large cabinets under the six-seat island. We also added clever storage features, including a paper towel holder and wine-fridge-wine-rack-combo.
The stainless-steel fixtures and appliances were selected to make cooking and everyday life easier for the family. The luxury appliances are from Jenn-Air and Thermador, and include a double oven, six-burner gas range, pot filler faucet and oversized sink.
Finally, the lightness of the gleaming white oak flooring keeps the space light and bright, while also conveniently hiding everyday dust and debris (contrary to dark floors).
South Land Remodeling’s attention to detail and craftsmanship took this kitchen to an entirely new level that the family will relish for years to come.
