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!
