This family of six from Ringoes, New Jersey, was happy with the basic layout of their kitchen but wanted to add cabinets to an unoccupied third wall to increase storage as part of the kitchen remodel.
On the third wall, the center base cabinet was bumped out to add visual interest and the wall cabinets above received stacked glass fronts flanking open bookshelves with wainscoting. The wainscoting pattern repeats on the rear of the island and on the wood hood above the range.
Upgrading their 30″ stove to a 36″ Wolf range increased cooking options for the large family. The microwave that formerly occupied counter space was moved into the island to be more accessible for the children. The main sink was upgraded to an oil rubbed bronze Kohler farmhouse sink and additional plumbing run for a matching prep sink in the island. The dishwasher received a matching panel to make it indistinguishable from the surrounding cabinets.
Though not as obvious to an outside observer, one of the most noticeable changes in the kitchen to the homeowners is the temperature during the summer. After eliminating one of the kitchens three skylights and replacing their drapery shrouded sliding glass door with one featuring blinds between the glass, the eat-in kitchen is much more pleasant to eat in during the summer months.
This is what the family had to say after the project had been completed:
We recently finished our kitchen renovation and could not be happier with the results. Home Solutions is a first class design company. Robyn and her crew of contractors, led by Jerry, were extraordinarily professional the entire process. They stayed on schedule and Robyn provided us with weekly updates and quickly responded to any questions. She set up meetings for us with all of her suppliers (appliances, etc.) based on our availability. Also, Robyn has continual contact with inspectors, so no delays occurred. I cannot overstate how efficient her scheduling was. Going through any home renovation can be a highly disruptive process. Home Solutions made the kitchen remodel as painless as possible. They cleaned thoroughly each day which did not go unnoticed. Most importantly, they delivered on the dream kitchen we hoped for. Before deciding to go with Home Solutions, we interviewed and met with many potential designers. In the near future, we will renovate our master bathroom and will certainly hire them for that job. We enthusiastically and strongly recommend Home Solutions.
