A U-shaped kitchen is a common feature in many colonial-style homes. Everything needed for prepping, cooking and cleaning are all within easy reach. There is typically enough room for at least two people in the “U”. These Mendham homeowners liked working in their U-shaped kitchen, but wanted to update the cabinetry, lighting and flooring. We performed a pull and replace remodel, and the homeowners got a totally new kitchen in just 4 and a half weeks.
Scope of Work: Kitchen Remodel, Floor Installation
Town: Mendham, NJ
Timing: 4 1/2 weeks
Dark Cherry to White Kitchen Cabinetry
The homeowners worked with a Designer in our Kitchen and Bath Design Studio to select their new cabinetry, hardware, countertops and floor tile. The two changes the homeowners requested was more counter space and more storage. We were able to achieve this be widening the peninsula. This allowed for more counter space, and also gave us the opportunity to add drawers to the outside of the peninsula.
Firstly, our project crews removed the cherry cabinetry and the parquet flooring. We installed new porcelain tile in the kitchen, dining room and laundry room giving a consistent look throughout most of the first floor.
The crew installed the new cabinetry and moved the existing appliances back in place. After the countertops were installed, a stone mosaic backsplash was laid. Lutron plugs, switches and wallplates were used in order to match the soft tones of the backsplash. Lutron has a variety of colors beyond the standard white or almond. In addition, we upgraded the recessed lighting to LED for energy efficiency.
This U-shaped kitchen remodel is complete and ready to be enjoyed by the homeowners.
