Condo Kitchen Update

New Medallion cabinets, countertop, lighting, floor, and fixtures reclaimed this room for a young couple, turning a dated, tired space into a fun place to prepare meals.  A double pullout trash located under the sink, rollout trays, a pantry pullout, a corner lazy susan, tray dividers over the refrigerator, undercabinet lighting, and new pendants over the peninsula all contribute to an organized, efficient, and good looking place for cooking and eating meals.

Night into Day Kitchen Transformation

This eat in kitchen in a Pine Island, NY Cape Cod house didn’t function for these empty-nesters and needed a complete re-design. Without removing walls or adding any space, deleting a pantry and moving the kitchen entrance to the pantry’s former location allowed for an L-shaped layout that improves flow and function while adding space for additional cabinets for prep and storage.

An island with an overhang on 3 sides for stools allows it to function both for prep and seating; moving the stove to the right of the sink gets it out of the corner of the room and allows the hood vent to the outside, an important consideration for people that really cook. We removed the soffits, replaced the floor, added under cabinet and recessed lighting, tiled the backsplash, changed the window for a single lite unit, and replaced the door to swing the opposite way and add full light.

Stone House Kitchen Revived!

The homeowners of this stone Cape Cod house needed counter space and an improved layout! Moving the original laundry room door around the corner and taking down the wall between the kitchen and dining room allowed for a plan that more than tripled the work area. The stove was relocated to the refrigerator wall, windows opening to an enclosed porch were removed, and a radiator was replaced with toe kick heaters. A light grey cabinet finish, light colored quartz countertops, recessed lights, and undercabinet lights further brighten the space. The utensil pullout next to the stove and vertical dividers in the top of the pantry help to give everything a place in this kitchen; glass doors on each side of the sink show off the pretty things, slightly obscured by the wavy glass. A new tile floor and backsplash complete the easy care kitchen. Baxter cabinets in Dover finish are by Kemper Cabinetry, quartz countertop is Cambria Darlington; sink is Blanco Diamond Silgranit in Biscotti with coordinating strainer; cabinet hardware is Amerock.

Older Home, Newer Kitchen!

New island, hutch, and microwave cabinet for house from 1776.

Kept the flavor, updated function with island seating, rollout trays, trash pullout, toekick drawers, and a soapstone countertop and sink with an integrated drainboard.

Washingtonville Cape Cod Kitchen Remodel

Cabinet doors were falling off and the work zone was compressed with the refrigerator standing in front of the stove in the before kitchen. The layout was revised to accommodate the homeowners’ needs and the space was gutted to the studs, enabling improvement to the infrastructure before tackling replacing the kitchen components. New everything! New warm toned cherry stained Kemper cabinetry to the ceiling with new slate-finished appliances, a Blanco granite composite sink, a new wood floor that matches the existing in the nearby family room, additional lighting, and storage in abundance keeps this family cooking. The countertop is carefree Cambria quartz.

On the backside of the peninsula is a cabinet with rollout trays to hold office or school work that can easily be cleared to make space for the next activity. A two-sided overhang easily accommodates 3 people, whether dining or keeping the cook company. The turned panty is 15 inches deep and stores a lot of groceries. The pullout next to the stove has bins for storing cooking utensils to keep them off the counter or from tangling in a drawer. Another great kitchen remodel!

Small Kitchen, BIG Results

Although no floor space was added to this small kitchen, the makeover visually and physically expanded storage capabilities. The white palette made the space lighter and look larger but the most significant change was claiming part of a nearby dining room closet for kitchen cabinets, adding 18” deep cabinetry for needed additional storage. The new microwave was placed here to put it at a more accessible height, with drawers below the counter for convenient access.

A new low-profile, pull-out vent hood over the stove was added with a new induction stove with the capability of dividing the oven space into two ovens for busy days. A 6” deep pantry takes little space but provides one-item depth storage that makes it easy to see what is on hand and access it. The existing Corian countertop, corner sink, backsplash, and integrated drainboard were kept from an earlier update, although a custom, hand painted tile insert was added behind the stove for interest. A new porcelain tile floor, new wall color, all new appliances, and new recessed and under cabinet lighting all contribute to make this kitchen the homeowners’ dream space.

Update for an Artist’s Kitchen, Westtown NY

The kitchen and dining area are open to each other in this Cape Cod style home. The kitchen layout was good but the style was dated with none of today’s storage solutions. The traditional L-shaped kitchen with an opposing L-shaped island creates an efficient work space with seating for “helpers” that keep them out of the main work triangle.

Additional seating is nearby in the dining area. The homeowners added a trash pullout, spice pullout, refrigerator drawers with matching custom panels, and rollout trays to make the space work better and allow retrieving items easier.

West Chester PA Kitchen Update

The kitchen in this 1959 home was original and it showed. Although high end for the time, a large and busy family had taken a toll and it was time for a complete redo. The kitchen was completely gutted and new Medallion Platinum cabinetry in 2 finishes, appliances, floor, lighting, and Corian Witch Hazel countertops were installed. A large laundry area that was located in a closet in the kitchen was relocated to a nearby hall closet using stackable units. That opened up about 24 sq feet which, along with moving and recessing the refrigerator into another closet, allowed for a large center island for work center and informal dining. The large vent hood covers a 30” gas stove and wok burner; a steam oven, refrigerator, and microwave are located on an adjacent wall; and tall pullouts help to store all the kitchen needs of an active family. An end wall has red cabinetry to match the red island, providing additional storage and prep space. The daughter painted the dancing rabbit tiles for the backsplash, incorporating both family history and Asian legend into this great space.

Monroe, NY Kitchen

Our clients’ Monroe, NY kitchen was falling apart and didn’t function for the busy family of four. They wanted to open the space to the dining and living rooms, already remodeled and ready to be seen. Armed with an inspiration photo and two different ideas on what the finished kitchen details should be, we merged their ideas into this stunning space that includes wish list items plus a few more. The microwave is a drawer, there’s a spice pullout, tray dividers for platters and cookie sheets are above the refrig, and a wine rack facing the dining room. The new layout allows for the storage of all of their items in the kitchen, overseeing homework at the new bar area, and sharing conversation.

Warwick Kitchen

A Warwick, NY homeowner wanted to update cabinets, improve storage, and remove the cabinets above the sink peninsula blocking the view and light from a window in the next room in her small condo. A tall pantry cabinet with rollout trays was added to provide critically needed additional storage and base cabinets with rollouts allow you to see and retrieve items without getting on your hands and knees. There’s a tiltout at the sink for sponge storage and the sink drain was kept to one side to allow a large 2-bin trash pullout under the sink. Tray dividers above the refrigerator provide storage for tall items like cookie sheets and platters. Undercabinet lighting improves visibility at the work areas on each side of the stove. The quartz countertop continues in a full height backsplash to limit the number of different materials in this small space and make cleanup easy – no grout lines! The bump out at the end of the sink countertop keeps friends nearby without being in the work area.

Campbell Hall Kitchen

A Campbell Hall kitchen needed a facelift on a modest budget. Removing the existing soffit and adding new cabinets and molding, a custom laminate countertop, cabinet hardware, lighting, sink and faucet, floor, tile backsplash, and microwave and dishwasher updated the space and allowed a total refresh of the kitchen.

The other appliances were saved to keep the budget in check. The wall oven was moved to the interior wall to provide more working area at the cooktop and open the kitchen to the light from the picture window.

Blooming Grove Kitchen Makeover

The homeowners wanted to remove the wall between the kitchen and dining room in a split level home to create an open space. The wall had previously been altered for a pass-through. Master’s Touch Kitchen & Bath Works designed a kitchen with a new island in the location of the old wall. The island houses a microwave that is hidden from view below the countertop, a large 2 drawer pot and pan cabinet to provide storage close to the stove location, and an overhang for seating on the back side for conversations with the cook or a quick bite. Other efficient uses of space include a sink tilt out, a double trash pullout next to the sink, tray dividers above the refrigerator for great access, and double rollout trays in base cabinets for easy retrieval of stored items.

The homeowners fell in love with Medallion Cabinetry’s Appaloosa finish, a warm grey hand-applied semi-transparent stain with distressing and dark accent color hang up. The island cabinets are a black heirloom finish with beadboard sides and back, and the countertop is easy care Cambria Quartz in Bradshaw color. A new tile backsplash, a black granite 2-level sink, matching wood moldings and trim, and new wood floor completed the update.
