Quality Oak Cabinets are Restyled

Readington, NJ, Before: A large kitchen with good quality oak cabinetry no longer met the needs of this large family. The island was undersized and the space was awkward when several people were working in the kitchen at once. Also, the dated oak was overwhelming in the space; they preferred a less "country" look. Reusing the cabinets and being as eco-friendly as possible was also important to them.


After: Cabinets were reconfigured to offer a coffee and appliance station which stood outside of the main cooking area. New cabinets were added where needed. Two islands - one with under counter beverage storage and seating, the other with an oven and both an induction and gas cooktop - were custom made. Carpentry upgrades, including crowns, new doors, side panels, and a refrigerator surround were added to the cabinetry. The new painted, glazed finish is our "Celery Seed." A built-in wall cabinet was finished to match the rest of the cabinetry and stained glass was added to the doors. The Walker Zanger backsplash tile makes the space pop.



Pittstown, NJ, Before: The cabinetry in this newer Alexandria Township, NJ home was builders' grade oak. The owners wanted a more custom design for the space.


After: These stock cabinets went from plain to perfectly stylish. After carpentry, including moldings and panels, a distressed white finish, the best option for oak, was applied to the main cabinets. The island was given priority treatment with decorative corbels, bead and post panels, and our Pecan Glow finish.
