Transitional Kitchen in Northern NJ

The Challenge

The homeowners wanted a new transitional kitchen while maintaining the original layout and footprint.

  • Their old kitchen was dark with dark wood and dark countertops.
  • The existing style did not match what their style.
  • Although the appliances were acceptable, they wanted to upgrade.
  • They wanted a larger island but one without seating.
  • Seating in new kitchen should be under the window wall.
  • They did not want to keep the existing stone floor and wall mounted tv.
  • Green walls had to go.
  • More in-cabinet storage was a must-have.

Challenges Within The Solution

This was a fairly straightforward kitchen remodel project because

  1. we were keeping the layout the same
  2. only adding new cabinetry and appliances
  3. updating the lighting
  4. installing a new backsplash.
  5. homeowners knew exactly what style they wanted.

No flat panel Shaker doors for these folks. They wanted raised panel doors, corbels, onlays and turned legs. Further, they wanted paint with a brushed finish on their new cabinets to provide texture. 

A kitchen remodel project can become very easy when the homeowners know what they want, have the budget to complete the project the way they want it, and the husband and wife agree on everything. 

Design Solution

We were able to fit lots of features into this new transitional kitchen. The lighting was upgraded, and they got a new backsplash. The new countertops are Taj Mahal granite, and the walls were painted a nice Arcadia White to get rid of the dated green color.
