Kitchen Design Services

Islands Design

We excel in creating kitchen islands that are not just visually appealing but also highly functional. Our designs often include built-in cooktops and ovens, seamlessly integrating these appliances into the island to maximize space and efficiency. Island sinks are another popular feature, offering convenience and a stylish focal point in your kitchen. Additionally, we understand the importance of social interaction in the kitchen, which is why many of our islands come with bar seating options, perfect for family gatherings or casual dining.

Cabinets Design

Our expertise in kitchen cabinet design focuses on custom solutions tailored to your storage needs and aesthetic preferences. We specialize in crafting pull-out drawers that maximize space and provide easy access to kitchen essentials. Our designs often feature innovative components like lazy susans, ensuring that every inch of your cabinet space is utilized efficiently. At A.C.T. Homes Constructions, we believe in combining functionality with style, and our custom cabinetry reflects just that – a perfect blend of practicality and elegance.

Countertops Design

Our selection includes a variety of materials like granite, quartz, marble, and wood, each offering its unique aesthetic and functional benefits. Granite and quartz are popular for their durability and low maintenance, while marble adds a touch of sophistication. Wood countertops, on the other hand, bring warmth and a natural feel to your kitchen. Our team helps you choose the right material that complements your kitchen’s overall design and meets your usage requirements.

Backsplashes Design

Kitchen backsplashes are more than just protective surfaces; they are an opportunity to add a splash of style to your kitchen. Our design options range from classic subway tiles to elegant glass and intricate mosaic designs. Each material and style offers a unique way to complement your kitchen’s theme. Whether you’re looking for a subtle enhancement or a bold statement piece, our backsplash designs are crafted to elevate the overall look of your kitchen.

Lighting Design

We offer an array of lighting solutions to suit any style and need. Our designs often include pendant lights which add a touch of elegance and are perfect for illuminating kitchen islands and dining areas. Track lights offer flexibility and are ideal for focusing light on specific areas, while under-cabinet lights provide additional illumination for countertops, enhancing both functionality and ambiance. Our team ensures that the lighting not only enhances the beauty of your kitchen but also contributes to a safe and efficient cooking environment.

Design Principles

 Our approach considers the layout, space utilization, and ergonomics to create kitchens that are not only beautiful but also practical and comfortable to use. We focus on creating a harmonious balance between different elements, ensuring that each kitchen we design is a perfect reflection of the homeowner's lifestyle and preferences. With A.C.T Construction and Renovations, you can trust that your kitchen will be a space where form meets function in the most elegant and efficient way.

Space Planning and Layout in Kitchen Design


Effective space planning and layout are fundamental to successful kitchen design. At A.C.T Construction and Renovations, we recognize that the kitchen is more than just a cooking area; it's a multifunctional space that needs to accommodate various activities, from meal preparation to family gatherings. Our approach to space planning and layout is meticulous and tailored to the specific needs of each homeowner, ensuring that every kitchen we design is as functional as it is beautiful.  











Ergonomic Design


Ergonomics plays a crucial role in our kitchen designs. We focus on creating layouts that minimize physical strain and maximize efficiency. This involves considering the height and placement of countertops, the positioning of appliances, and ensuring there's ample room for movement. We aim to reduce unnecessary steps and make every action in the kitchen as effortless as possible.


The Kitchen Work Triangle


A critical concept in kitchen layout is the work triangle, which involves the placement of the three main work areas: the sink, the stove, and the refrigerator. Our designs strive to optimize the distances between these points, reducing the effort needed to move between them. We ensure that the paths are not obstructed, making cooking and cleaning processes more efficient and enjoyable.


Maximizing Space


In every kitchen design, maximizing space is a priority. We understand that every kitchen has its unique spatial challenges, whether it's a compact city apartment or a spacious suburban home. Our designs focus on utilizing every inch of available space, integrating solutions like corner cabinets, vertical storage, and built-in appliances to ensure a clutter-free and spacious environment.


Flexible and Multifunctional Spaces


Modern kitchens often serve multiple purposes; they're places where meals are cooked, where families gather, and sometimes even where work or homework gets done. We design kitchens that are flexible and can adapt to these various needs. This includes incorporating elements like kitchen islands with seating, adaptable storage solutions, and areas that can serve multiple purposes.



Custom Cabinetry and Storage Solutions


Custom cabinetry and storage solutions are key components of functional and aesthetically pleasing kitchen design. At A.C.T Construction and Renovations we specialize in creating cabinetry that is not only visually striking but also tailored to meet the unique storage needs of our clients. Our approach to cabinetry is both innovative and practical, ensuring that every kitchen we design is as organized as it is beautiful.





Tailored Cabinetry for Personalized Kitchens


We understand that each homeowner has distinct preferences and requirements. Our custom cabinetry is designed to reflect your personal style and cater to your specific needs. From classic to contemporary, we offer a wide range of styles, finishes, and colors. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of traditional wood cabinets or the sleek, modern appeal of high-gloss finishes, our team works closely with you to bring your vision to life.


Intelligent Storage Solutions


Efficient storage solutions are at the heart of our cabinetry designs. We focus on maximizing the functionality of every cabinet, drawer, and pantry. Our designs often include innovative features such as pull-out drawers for easy access to pots and pans, corner cabinets with lazy susans to utilize hard-to-reach spaces, and custom pantry solutions for organized food storage. Every storage element is thoughtfully designed to make kitchen organization seamless and intuitive.


Integrating Appliances Seamlessly


Modern kitchens often feature integrated appliances, and our cabinetry designs accommodate this trend seamlessly. We design cabinets that flawlessly incorporate appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens, maintaining a cohesive and streamlined look throughout the kitchen. This integration not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also improves the functionality and flow of the space.


Durable and High-Quality Materials


The longevity of cabinetry is crucial, and we prioritize the use of high-quality, durable materials in our construction. Whether it’s solid wood, plywood, or high-quality MDF, we select materials that stand the test of time and retain their beauty and functionality for years to come. Our craftsmanship ensures that every cabinet we build is sturdy, reliable, and resistant to wear and tear.


Lighting Design and Installation in Kitchen Renovations


Proper lighting is a crucial aspect of kitchen design, significantly impacting both the functionality and ambiance of the space. At A.C.T Construction and Renovations we understand the importance of well-planned lighting solutions in kitchen renovations. Our approach to lighting design and installation focuses on creating a balance between practicality and aesthetic appeal, ensuring that every kitchen we work on is illuminated in a way that enhances its overall design and usability.


Task Lighting for Functionality


One of the primary considerations in our kitchen lighting design is task lighting. This type of lighting is crucial for illuminating workspaces like countertops, sinks, and cooking areas. We ensure that these areas are well-lit with bright, focused lighting, reducing eye strain and increasing safety during food preparation and cooking. Options like under-cabinet lights are popular choices, providing direct illumination to work surfaces without casting shadows.


Ambient Lighting for Comfort


Ambient lighting plays a vital role in creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere in the kitchen. Our designs often include ceiling fixtures, like recessed lights or flush mounts, which provide a soft, even light throughout the space. This layer of lighting serves as the foundation of the kitchen's lighting scheme, setting the tone and mood of the room.


Accent Lighting for Visual Interest


To add depth and dimension to kitchen spaces, we incorporate accent lighting. This can include lighting inside glass-front cabinets to highlight beautiful dishware, toe-kick lights for a subtle floor glow, or directional lights to accentuate architectural features or artwork. Accent lighting adds a touch of elegance and can transform the kitchen into a visually stunning space.


Decorative Lighting as a Focal Point


Decorative lighting, such as pendant lights over kitchen islands or a statement chandelier in a dining area, serves as both a light source and a design element. We select fixtures that complement the kitchen's style, adding personality and character. Decorative lighting is particularly effective in tying together the design elements of the kitchen, creating a cohesive look.


Energy-Efficient and Smart Lighting Solutions


In line with contemporary trends and sustainability goals, we focus on energy-efficient lighting solutions, such as LED lights, which reduce electricity consumption and lower energy bills. Additionally, we offer smart lighting options that can be controlled via smartphone or voice commands, providing convenience and flexibility in how the kitchen is lit.


Professional Installation for Optimal Results


Our team of skilled electricians ensures that all lighting is installed safely and efficiently, with meticulous attention to detail. We handle everything from wiring to fixture installation, ensuring that each lighting element is perfectly placed for optimal functionality and visual appeal.
