Custom Kitchen Designs for Hunterdon, NJ & Bucks, PA Homes
Annandale, NJ, Before: When this professional couple decided to upgrade their kitchen they did not want the burden and inconvenience of a total renovation to interfere with the busy lifestyle they and their four children led. They liked cherry, but the current cabinets had no real architectural interest and the cabinet doors were thin and unsubstantial. A custom refacing with new doors and all of the upgraded architectural elements seemed to be the perfect option for them.
After: The first thing done was the installation of a larger kitchen window. Upper cabinets were reconfigured to accommodate this change. The lower cabinets were lengthened with the addition of a bookshelf cabinet on the left end. Appliances were changed and moved and a professional, stainless steel hood was installed. The desk was modified to include a new cabinet with pot drawers while the upper cabinets, which were moved next to those alongside the new window, were replaced with deeper units which were designed to accomodate a custom appliance garage. New doors of solid cherry were custom stained and installed, as were side panels and substantial crowns.
New doors, which were solid cherry and had greater weight to them and more interesting architecture than the original, lightweight ones, were stained to match the original color, which the owners liked, and replaced the builders grade doors. Coordinating side panels, crowns, and a light apron were also installed. The end result is an upgraded kitchen which has classic, upscale appeal and will complement a variety of design styles for many years to come.
Bucks County, PA, Before: A galley kitchen was dark and tunnel-like, with a narrow doorway to the eating area and awkward path to the dining room. The cabinets, although dated, were solid wood with cherry frames.
After: Some cosmetic renovations, including expanding the doorway to the breakfast nook and pulling back the soffit, opened up the space. Some cabinets and appliances were reconfigured, improving flow to the dining room as well as increasing functional counter top space. An upscale soffit treatment, new wood doors with our popular Butternut finish, and a unique granite counter all contribute to the transformation. Next step is the backsplash . . .
