JWH Best of Design 2016

JWH Nominated for Best of Living Spaces

“It’s an honor to be selected for this category.  The beautiful Kitchen is the main feature, but how the overall space “lives” is what makes it special,” says Jennifer Howard, principal designer and owner of JWH Design & Cabinetry in Rye, NY.  The more challenging the space is, however, the more excited the JWH Team is to orchestrate the transformation.

Working closely with the Client from start to finish resulted in a space that the family enjoys every day. The remarkable “before” and “after” photos are featured on Houzz.

Winners for the Best of Design will be announced Thursday, April 7, 2016, at the 5th Annual Awards Ceremony.

Truly a “living space” by the JWH Design Team. Also one of our favorites

From Concept to Completion


The Kitchen Concept

Before the start of the renovation of this NY home, our JWH Team measured all the existing spaces; most of which lacked flow and light. Working through several new layout options, evaluating the pros and cons of each, resulted in the “best” layout for this family.  Taking the lines on the page a step further,  Jennifer Howard created the realistic 3-dimensional perspective views, allowing the Clients to fully visualize their new space and feel totally confident in their decisions.  The cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, lighting, flooring, and even furniture layouts can be selected (and visualized) before the actual construction begins.  This not only ensures creating a cohesive end result, it allows for realistic budgets of all these materials and avoids mid-construction changes.  This process at JWH is unique and highly effective.

The whole house is only as good as the sum of its parts.  Looking at the big picture is as important as looking at individual areas.  Be it a bathroom, kitchen or family room project in question, taking all the spaces into consideration is the first step in achieving the best possible results.

Every project is a challenge to the JWH Team– but the more challenging the better.  Check out the rest of the Before and After Photos of this project on Houzz.
