With the kitchen opened up and feeling more inviting, Scott moved on to get drywall installed and paint completed on the Washington Township kitchen project. The next major phase of the remodel was the installation of the cabinets.
Our clients chose the Omega Dynasty Manor door style made of Quartersawn Oak with a butternut finish. The cabinets are an arts-and-crafts style that fit their tastes perfectly.
Scott installed a cabinet in a corner of the kitchen specifically designed for the microwave. Our client wanted to have their microwave off the countertop to maximize countertop space. Getting the microwave cabinet elevated was a major element for the new layout.
The java bar cabinetry is in and looking great. The upper cabinets will have glass front doors and be the main display of our client’s collection of Starbucks city mugs that they treasure. This area is going to be a great look and unique component of their kitchen.
You can see the main preparation wall all coming together. The corner cabinet is where the microwave will slide in. The new range and hood will be installed in the open spaces on the right side of the picture. There will be plenty of preparation room for our client to bake all of her tasty breads and treats!
Scott had the countertop measured and templated so the granite will be getting fabricated over the next few weeks. The new tile flooring will be installed and Scott will be completing the finish carpentry work. Plenty of new transforming additions are coming to this kitchen, make sure to keep coming back for more updates!
The cabinets are all set on Brian’s Springfield kitchen remodeling project. Our client chose to go with Omega Dynasty Plymouth door style for his cabinets in Quarter Sawn Oak with a Sable stain. Cabinet doors and hardware haven’t been installed yet.
Now you can get a better visualization on the new layout of the kitchen. The refrigerator will slide in underneath the left upper wall cabinet. The double oven will be installed in the middle of the tall, right cabinet. Above the double ovens is a nice sized cabinet for storage.
The new main cooking area is also coming together nicely. The left, upper cabinet has an open spot where the microwave will be mounted. In between the left and right upper cabinets is where the new range hood will be installed. The cook top will be dropped in the center base cabinet.
The base and upper cabinets have been installed on the sink wall. You’ll notice the upper, right cabinet was designed to be shorter to allow for more head clearance over the sink.
The wall shown below is the wall opposite the refrigerator. It’s a perfect area for extra shelf storage. Our client thoroughly enjoys wine, so we created a wine rack cabinet on the right side for a clean display of bottles.
Brian is busy finishing putting all of the doors and hardware on the cabinets as well as the trim carpentry work. We will check back with him soon with more pictures and how the final cabinets are looking!
Brian is back with a kitchen project out in Springfield. Our client was looking to update his home that was built in 1927. Changing the layout of the kitchen, along with new appliances will completely transform how they utilize their kitchen.
Brian has completed demolition by removing the old cabinets, countertops, and appliances. Brian has also completed the drywall phase. Enjoy the before and after photos below. The wall shown below will be completely revamped and redesigned. You will now see cabinets where the refrigerator was, the microwave will move, the cook top will be centered and a new range hood will be installed. The new arrangement will give our client counter space on the right and left sides of the cook top which will allow for room to prep meals.
The new location of the refrigerator will now move to the far side of the kitchen along with a new double oven. Our client upgraded from a single oven setup. The refrigerator will be on the left side of the wall and the double oven on the right with a nice countertop landing space in between them. Moving the fridge and double ovens as well as adding tall cabinetry will provide a better traffic pattern and make space more functional.
The wall opposite of the cooktop and microwave will get a new dishwasher, garbage disposal, sink, and faucet but stay in their existing locations.
A brand new pantry cabinet will also be installed in its original location. Our client’s original pantry shelving was old, worn down, and not very functional. The new cabinet will have adjustable shelving and structural integrity to allow for great storage.
Brian is busy working on setting the cabinets in the kitchen. We will have pictures next week so make sure to come back to see the kitchen progressing!
Scott is in Washington Township with a kitchen remodeling project that has just begun. Our clients loves to bake and cook, and have two young children to watch after. We needed to design a kitchen that was more open and functional for them. By opening up the room, adding counter space and more efficient cabinets, our clients will thoroughly enjoy their new kitchen.
The original pass-through over the sink gave them some visibility to the family room but not a complete view. To give them great visibility and an open design to the family room, it made sense to take down the wall to the left of the sink. You can see the progression of the wall being taken down in pictures above and below.
In addition to the removal of the wall, we removed the dropped ceiling and fluorescent lighting. The additional height of the ceiling will continue to open up the kitchen and make it feel more inviting. We also added recessed cans to greatly improve the lighting.
Another change to the flow of their kitchen will be the new coffee bar. Our clients are huge java lovers and wanted an area for their coffee supplies and an area to display the Starbucks coffee mugs they collect. The coffee bar is being constructed by opening the wall in the eat-in kitchen area and converting the closet that was existing in the laundry room. The closet has been emptied and framed to now be a nook to open into the kitchen.
Scott’s next big steps of the project will be finishing the drywall, painting the walls and setting the cabinets. There is plenty of work ahead and more blog updates to come! Check back for more on this great kitchen!
