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 starting to put his finishing touches on the West Chester kitchen project. After a delay in the production of the countertop, Brian has finally been able to make substantial progress.
The countertop our client’s chose is a Cambria Quartz countertop in the color Hollinsbrook. It’s a beautiful, dark countertop with lots of movement. The colors not only compliment the cabinets, but also the floor. The floor is covered by cardboard right now for protection. The bright spots in the second picture are reflections of the can lights above.
The microwave and refrigerator have been set in place in the pantry area. There have been a few hiccups concerning the appliances, but when all is said and done, we will make sure everything is addressed and our client is happy.
Brian had some help doing the backsplash tile from another one of our carpenters, Cody. While Brian was doing some finish carpentry, Cody was working diligently on laying out and installing the tile. Our client and designer, Beth, worked together to come up with this design. They chose 6″ x 6″ travertine as the field tile and glass tile as the accent pieces beneath the hood. There are two different glass tiles. The tile that makes up the picture frame is Mohawk Stone Treasure Brown Coffee 5.67mm x 5.67mm. The individual glass tiles inside the picture frame are Mohawk Christoval Glass Caramel Sundae 1″ x 1″.
The knobs and handles have all been applied to the cabinet doors and drawers.
The island is now complete with the installation of the countertop. Furniture base and door end kits have been applied to the sides of the cabinets as well. The door end kits really take a good looking kitchen to a great looking kitchen.
There’s still lots of cleanup to be done on this project, but we’re nearing the end and heading towards another beautiful kitchen. Stay tuned to see final pictures of this West Chester Kitchen.
The West Chester kitchen and office project is coming along very nicely. A lot has been accomplished since we last saw this room. Although the floor has been covered up with cardboard, brand new wood has been installed underneath those cabinets.
The countertop measurement is a very important deadline that must be met in order for the project to be completed on time. The countertop normally takes two weeks to fabricate after the measurement has been taken. For Brian, that meant the base cabinets had to be installed as soon as possible. The countertop measure actually took place just before these pictures were taken.
Brian will finish installing the finished panels on the cabinets during the finish carpentry phase. The cardboard is a mock-up of what the actual size of the island countertop will be. It helps to give our clients a visual of how traffic will flow.
As you can see, Brain has used shims against the wall to keep the cabinets level with each other. This is extremely important for the countertop to fit correctly. The microwave cabinet has also been unveiled. There will be shelves in the upper compartment of the cabinet. The microwave will be placed in the finished compartment. A drawer will go underneath the microwave. And lastly, more shelves will be inserted underneath the drawer.
Brian has finished off the doorway to the living room very nicely. This door is not a cased opening to match the rest of the house. The office doorway on the right is not finished yet because it will have a door installed to allow for privacy. The picture on the right is where the range and hood will be installed. Once the appliances are installed, the look of the space will change dramatically.
While Brain is waiting on the countertop, he’ll be installing wall cabinets, crown molding, and other finished trim work. Countertop, backsplash tile, and appliances will be coming after that! Stay tuned to see how the wall cabinets start to make this room look like a kitchen!
