The focal point for so many homes is the kitchen, where family and friends congregate to both catch up and fill up. As a result, kitchens are evolving. That’s where La Jolla-based Studio Stratton comes in, offering complete kitchen designs with over 27 years of experience. Owner Lance Stratton says they’ll meet every need of a design, from cabinetry and imported countertops to custom lighting and appliances.
“Many of the latest trends center around unconventional options for storage,” explains Stratton. “Rather than a wall full of upper cabinets, we might design for windows above counter tops to maximize views. We’re seeing dramatic advancements in lighting — using high efficacy light sources like LED. It’s now very easy for us to put light anywhere we might want it.”
Studio Stratton begins with a consultation with one of their award-winning designers, after which they offer something unique — photo-realistic 3D renderings of what your new kitchen will look like before they even begin the redesign.
“We have a lot to offer,” assures Stratton. “Experience, design options, brands and materials are at the top of that list. We also help clients get from where they are to where they want to be even when they don’t know the path. Because we do.” (858.459.3757, www.studiostratton.com) RYAN THOMAS
