Location: Basking Ridge, NJ
Scope of Work: Kitchen Remodel, Floor Installation, Floor Refinishing
The homeowners never really loved the layout of their kitchen. It didn’t provide enough storage. It was difficult to maneuver the galley prep area with more than one person. The finishes were dated. The homeowners were ready for a reconfiguration as well as an upgrade.
Monk’s took measurements and discussed some options. Then, the homeowners came into our Design Studio and worked with one of our in-house Designers to create a more functional layout.
The galley kitchen would be replaced with a U-shaped kitchen and island. Three walls of the kitchen would include cabinetry and appliances. An island would also be installed to provide storage and countertop prep space.
The butler’s pantry would also get a full upgrade. A wine refrigerator and ice maker would be incorporated to make full use of this bonus entertaining space.
Once all the materials were on site, Monk’s began by removing the current kitchen. When this was completed, the new windows were installed in the kitchen and butler’s pantry. The existing parquet floor was removed and replaced with hardwood floors. Our flooring crew installed, stained and sealed the oak floors on site.
The cabinetry was installed, and the countertops were templated. After the countertops were installed, we began work on the slate backsplash. The slate was set in a herringbone pattern. Under the curved hood, we also cut the tile to create an arch that fit perfectly under the hood.
In eight weeks these homeowners were ready to enjoy their totally reconfigured, updated kitchen. We hope they enjoy it for years to come!
