Spicewood Springs Kitchen Renovation


This Spicewood Springs Kitchen Renovation shows a contemporary look that leans towards transitional.  The overall aestheic cosists of classic design elememt, but modern features, LED lighting, and comercial grade appliances make this a transitional design.

These clients’ lives focus on the family. From building tree houses to cooking dinner, they do things together. The details of their design, and especially its features, were critical. Both well-respected professionals in the tech field, they desired a contemporary custom kitchen design to accommodate their family of four.

kitchen highlights

We transitioned their traditional kitchen creating a contemporary design accessorized with a wine bar and a pullout espresso station. They have a place for doing homework and an optimized zone for preparing meals. They have room for it all, with everything in its place.

Transitional cabinetry

The kitchen spotlights white quartz countertops and the cream-colored kitchen island. In contrast, we used espresso-stained shaker-style cabinets and colorful walls. Pendant lights over the kitchen island along with the red bar stools also add a modern accent. The custom cabinetry with built-in bookshelves balances it out with a home-like vibe.

This contemporary custom kitchen features two-tone walls, and we separated each color by a chair rail. Also, notice the small square crown molding on the cabinets contrasted by the lack of crown molding elsewhere in the kitchen, a favored modern design element.

Glass, but not too much

The frosted glass inserts in upper cabinets on either side of the sink achieve a beautiful aesthetic, and the Key West cabinet hardware adds a stylish touch. The large stainless steel rectangular undermount sink paired with subway-patterned grey glass-tiled backsplash, blue walls, and off-white floor tiles look amazing.

We took advantage of the high ceiling above the island bar installing pendant lighting. However, we opted to use can lights over the peninsula since the roof above was lower in height.

Key Kitchen Features


Storage options abound with a long run of cabinets that extend up to the ceiling. The kitchen cabinets, accessorized with pull-out drawers for the trash can and cooking accessories, provide elements of functionality as well as beauty. The dark espresso stained wood contrasts the stainless steel appliances creating a stunning aesthetic.


Our clients love to use coffee station and other handy appliances everyday.  But they hate the clutter it can leave, which is why specialize in smart, functional designs that also look amazing.

The cabinetry conceals the microwave and coffee station inside of a convenient appliance garage. We finished the inside of the appliance garage providing an impressive look even while it is open. A flat pull-out stand extends the coffee station providing easy access.

Island Features

The initial design intended the living room side of the peninsula to be a built-in desk. However, during construction, the clients decided to install shelves in the original seating area. We applied the cabinet finish underneath the shelves to achieve a stunning finished-furniture look.

The bar area just outside of the kitchen has flat-panel doors, also offering a modern look. In contrast, we used traditional shaker-style doors. The glass inserts in the upper cabinets add a beautiful aesthetic. Highlights include vertical shelves for wine bottles, expansive countertop space, as well as a built-in wine refrigerator.

Spicewood Springs Kitchen Renovation

We worked with New Creations to do a complete kitchen remodel, and a refresh of a laundry room and powder room. We are very pleased not only with the results, but the entire process from design to completion.

Roy is the business owner and handles the sales and design aspects of projects. Roy is a very honest person and was always up front and forthcoming about what options would cost. He also is very good at planning a job to make sure everything runs smoothly. On the project design, Roy was always very enthusiastic and was a pleasure to work with. He was able to understand our vision of what we wanted and use his expertise to make it better than we ever could have done on our own. He was always working on new ideas, whether it was dropping off new tile samples that he was excited about, or sweating the details on the perfect paint colors. We appreciated the personal attention and passion that Roy put into our project.

Troy is the project manager and is responsible for the construction, schedule, and quality of the job. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with than Troy. He was always on top of every single detail, and it was clear that he took the schedule and job quality very seriously. Whenever we would ask him a question or give feedback, he would always make sure to take care of it; I can’t think of a single time when Troy forgot something that I had talked to him about. Troy is a very nice person who knows how to get things done on time with a level of quality that he would expect in his own house.

Our job came in on time and on budget. Everyone we worked with was professional and friendly. The results were everything we wanted, and for a job this big it ran very smoothly. We will definitely be working with New Creations on our next remodeling project.

Update 4/6/2018 – Bathroom Remodel

We worked with New Creations to do a complete master bathroom remodel and a refresh of a jack and jill bathroom. Both bathrooms turned out amazing, both in terms of looks and functionality. This is our second time working with New Creations (previously we did a complete kitchen remodel) and once again Roy and his team really took care of us from beginning to end.

All aspects of the work – from design to project management to construction were handled extremely professionally and with great attention to detail. The project came in ahead of schedule and on budget.

A big thanks to Roy, Erin, Apollo, and the rest of the team for another home run project! We look forward to our next project with you all!
