Montecito home improvements
Montecito is a census-designated area in Santa Barbara County. In the middle of the 19th century, the area was known as a haven for bandits and highway robbers, who hid in the oak groves and canyons, preying on traffic on the coastal route between the towns that developed around the missions. By the end of the 1860s, the bandit gangs were gone, and Italian settlers arrived. The architect George Washington Smith is noted particularly for his residences around Montecito, and for popularizing the Spanish Colonial Revival style in early 20th century America.

The picture on top shows a remodeling project we did for our clients in Montecito neighboring Carpinteria. You will see white shaker cabinets with matte black pulls to contrast. This kitchen features black leathered quartz countertops on the perimeter coordinated with a swirly quartz island countertop. The dark gray tile floor and the stainless steel chef-style appliances balance out the lightness of the space.
Open and bright Kitchen Design
And the image on the right shows a kitchen remodel project from Montecito neighboring Santa Ynez where we show off a wood plank accent wall framing a long window that opens out to the back yard for a perfect view. White shaker cabinets combined with calacatta quartz countertops and a contrasting butcher block on the island top. Added details such as the 2 large clear glass pendants, full subway tile backsplash, and the open shelving give a fresh and airy look to this kitchen.
Elegant bathroom design
Following you will see a bathroom remodel from Montecito neighbors in Santa Barbara featuring a white tongue and groove ceiling that matches with the long shaker style vanity. To break up the space Carrara marble countertop was added which coordinates well with the dark gray cement look tile on the floor. On the opposite wall, you can see a large walking shower that features a Carrara tile with an accent band going around the shower walls. Brushed nickel finishes on fixtures and hardware compliment the clean and timeless look.
Bright & shiny Kitchen styles
The next images are from Montecito neighbors in Santa Barbara and Goleta. The first highlights an upgraded galley kitchen with off-white shaker cabinets and a beautiful quartzite countertop. The focus of this kitchen is the lantern-shaped glass backsplash going all the way to the ceiling behind the range top and chimney hood. Cherry wood accents such as the floor and beams bring a warmer feel to the space. The second shows walnut stain cabinets contrasting with a white calacatta quartz. A lighter stone tile floor and white walls keep the space bright and fresh. The green glass tile backsplash next to a textured long subway tile adds not only color but a playful look to this transitional style kitchen.
