This sleek kitchen remodel features smart design elements and quality materials to create a simple yet dramatic space.
The kitchen remodel features walnut-veneer cabinetry throughout the space and extra-tall upper cabinets that extend all the way to the ceiling for a dramatic effect. Our team also reconfigured the previously two-tiered island to a flat and expansive center island with straight and sleek modern hardware.
This project also includes space-efficient details such as a trash pull-out, multiple lazy-suzans, and tray dividers to make this space as smart as it is sleek.
The final touches include a white subway tile backsplash and quartz countertops that give the space an understated elegance for this family to enjoy in years to come.
We hope you enjoyed this North Carolina modern home tour!

This client was moving from Chicago to North Carolina and determined that CKS would be the best company to execute their refined and modern vision. This client wanted an entire-home remodel which included a completely gutted kitchen, living room, and master bathroom.
The main materials for this modern kitchen remodel include walnut-veneer cabinetry with black reveals and a tiled feature wall. To further elevate the space, our team installed appliance panels on the dishwasher and the fridge to give it a built-in and custom look. Another smart feature of this kitchen remodel includes a pocket pantry door that matches the rest of the cabinetry and blends in seamlessly.
In the master bathroom remodel, we used teak cabinetry and installed a marine-grade solid teak wood bench to not only create a spa-like feel, but also to create a “wet area” that could withstand any sort of moisture. This space naturally effortlessly transitions to the open-concept rain shower without a door created a bathroom oasis for the clients.
The previous living room felt dark and weighed down by outdated brick mantle so we completely built-out and covered the brick with panels and a modern quartz shelf.
Our team also replaced the 3-form panels that divided the living room and the foyer with custom bookshelves and a glass feature wall. New lighting and paint brightened and updated the area to a modern and personalized living space.
We continued to incorporate modern design elements in the den which includes a custom teak bookshelf unit built around the window, custom ceiling beams, and leather wall panels.
These modern updates in addition to new lighting, paint, and doors throughout the home brightened and transformed this residence to a modern and personalized living space.

Today we’re taking you inside one of Durham’s hippest hotels — The Aloft of Downtown Durham. This contemporary space features a custom bar, reception desk, refuel area, and wood paneling completed by the CKS team. This aloft hotel is located in the heart of the American Tobacco Historic District and is just steps away from the best dining and entertainment that downtown Durham has to offer.
This hotel is known for it’s vibrant social scene and authentic design, so when they reached out to us to help them with their main lobby area, we knew this would be a great fit for us!
Scroll down to the images below to check out this hotel’s custom XYZ® bar to the Re:mixSM lounge!
Thanks for allowing us to be a part of such a fun project Aloft of Downtown Durham!

The John Dory is a sustainable seafood restaurant located at the Ace Hotel in New York City at 1196 Broadway. We had the privilege of doing the custom millwork for this project, including the green ceiling beans. We are thrilled with how this bright and unique space turned out.
We’ll see you next time NYC!
Check out these cool brackets we made in the shop. The designer wanted something that would eventually look like metal with the look of old time rivets. We simulated all that out of wood and brush painted it with a high gloss green paint. When it was all done and completed you would never know they were not 50 year old metal beams and brackets. If your ever at John Dory Oyster bar on Broadway in New York City you can see for yourself!
