New Neutral Kitchen in Mendham, NJ

Project Description

Location: Mendham, NJ
Scope of Work: Kitchen Remodel

The builder-grade cherry kitchen with laminate countertops was not up to par with the rest of this grand Mendham home. The homeowners wanted to change the look of their kitchen, while also upgrading the appliances and finishes. The result is a beautiful neutral kitchen that will look top-notch for many years to come.

Monk’s Method

To achieve the look and function that the homeowners were after, our Designer discussed a few different options. Based on these discussions, a few key changes were made to the layout. The Designer also helped coordinate all the materials and finishes in our showroom.

The biggest change to the layout was relocating the refrigerator to the pantry area. Instead of the pantry closet, a built-in Jenn-Air refrigerator was installed. Then the fridge was flanked with two pantry cabinets featuring pull-out drawers. Lastly, a new header over the refrigerator tied everything together.

The other main change was moving the microwave from above the range to the island. Now, the microwave is built-in to the island. We made the island larger using dark cabinetry. Then we topped the island with double thickness quartz for a dramatic look.

The standard height cabinetry was replaced with cabinetry that meets the ceiling. Then carpenters topped the cabinets with crown molding. We put in a new ceramic farmhouse sink and a new faucet. After the quartz countertops were installed, we installed a new subway style backsplash. An ornate tile pattern was installed over the range. Richly stained prefinished hardwood flooring replaced the dated square floor tile.

Lastly, a new beverage bar and hutch were installed. This cabinet configuration features plenty of storage for wine bottles and glassware. A new wine refrigerator was another addition.

Now, this kitchen has a better functioning layout with plenty of space for storage, as well as entertaining.
