Before & After: Edmond Kitchen & Bath
When construction and design intermingle, Robert and Brenda Helms are in the midst of doing what they do best. Edmond Kitchen & Bath LLC and their crew have been renovating homes in Oklahoma for over 10 years. “When we first started, Robert and I had been doing work for builders and other designers. We were using each other’s ideas and realized that together we had something unique that could be marketed for ourselves” said Brenda. “It was our projects done together that really stood out. We truly love this business and are inspired by quality design that we can represent in our community.”
To the Helms, redesigning or remodeling doesn’t necessarily mean gut and rebuild, though sometimes this is the most cost-effective for the results desired (as was the case in these photos). “The budget often determines this, but we always work with the client to create a look they’ll love” said Brenda.
According to Brenda, the client in this kitchen wanted a mid-level makeover, but as ideas and possibilities for the space were discussed, it became evident that a full remodel was the best solution for their family. “This homeowner cooks regularly, and entertains with family and friends often” said Brenda. “Our goal was to create a working kitchen while providing a bit of classic elegance.”
From floor plans and cabinet design, to window treatments and accessorizing, Brenda and Junior Designer Megan Greve enjoy every aspect of a project. “As a designer, you appreciate seeing all the pieces come together for your client. We take design very seriously and give everyone their own unique look.” Helms says that she and Megan enjoy interpreting each client’s ‘design personality.’ “We don’t repeat what we did on our last renovation and apply it to the next. We come up with new ideas so each client has their own fresh look.”
Their design services, coupled with integrity and quality of craftsmanship, have earned Edmond Kitchen & Bath LLC a great reputation among clients. Helms shared, “We’ve had many clients say they came to us because we’re approachable, and they wanted to give their business to a company they felt good about. When people tell us they handpicked our company to have this journey with, it stands out as gold to us. We have amazing clients that we truly become friends with.”
