Tudor Kitchen Before and After


Classic details lines with a modern look

Open space for family and function

Before JWH Design & Cabinetry

The challenge for JWH

Catching up on the photography of our recent renovations, this Tudor Kitchen is a prime example!  Keeping the same footprint and antique leaded windows, JWH combined separate interior spaces to create an open Kitchen space. With room for cooking, family meals, and entertaining JWH really opened up this space. This new Project uploaded on Houzz shows the Before and After photos that are worth a thousand words! This was truly a kitchen challenge.

A Kitchen Challenge Overcome

The before spaces are recognizable, from the previous table area to the windows over the kitchen sink, and even the “challenging” long wall.  Removing two interior walls, thick with plaster and old pipes, allowed us to create one continuous space from the newly built-in banquette across the Kitchen to the Family Room seating, and even a bonus Kids’ homework space tucked in a corner.  Our JWH Construction Management Team coordinated the process from permits through painting.

The cabinetry has been designed to be classic with a modern twist. Clean lines, a mixture of slab and flat panel doors, partially exposed face frames and concealed hinges, are offset with the open walnut shelving and iron brackets.  Staying away from the common “white” cabinet, the paint color is a long favorite of this homeowner. We learned this from traveling with her across the country from her previous home. The light countertops and backsplash add a beautiful contrast. Steel was needed to span a few spaces, but the JWH Construction Management Team has the expertise to make it work.  The rustic beams create a warm, finishing touch, after being located in a PA barn by our partner Millshop.

From our initial 3-D perspective views, the Client and our JWH Design Team were able to work through all the details before the project ever started.  The result for JWH:  a streamlined process from beginning to end.  The result for our Client:  results beyond expectation!

Pro Photos to Match Professional Home Design

It is so exciting to finally get professional photographs of our Clients’ homes when they are “done.” Capturing the results of careful planning, creative designing, and hard work in the finishing is very satisfying. And not just to me as the Designer, but the entire JWH Team. Great photos have been captured by photographer, Mick Hales, and have been uploaded to our JWH website. These professional photos capture the professional home design perfectly!

Here is the link to a fabulous Kitchen as part of a whole house transformation, including the Master and Kids’ Baths.   Our JWH Team was brought in before these Client’s evens signed contracts on this home.  In much need of a total overhaul, Jennifer Howard and the JWH Team designed architectural changes that would improve the flow, function, and aesthetics of this fabulous family home.

The second project has been a work in progress for 5 years. It started with the Master Bath and then moved onto Living and Mudroom. Finally, we ended the project with culminating in the Kitchen; all the while with plenty of time in between each project. We love our loyal JWH Clients!
