Middletown, New Jersey homeowners wanted to revamp their entire first floor, with a priority on updating their kitchen. The Design Build Planners created designs for the kitchen PLUS remodel in Monmouth County. To the right is a dollhouse overview of the project.
After reviewing several options from our initial design package, they were able to hone in on a plan that removes the wall to the dining room, creates a pass through to the living room, and relocates a half bath to open the floorplan. The increased space enables the kitchen to have additional counter area and storage. Although and “open” plan, the kitchen, eating and entertaining areas are connected while maintaining room boundaries.
The kitchen features white painted cabinets, a stainless appliance package and oil rubbed bronze accents. The quartz counter with grey highlights ties together the tile backsplash and the paint selections.
While the main focus of design was the kitchen, while relocating the powder room to the rear of the family room had us redesign this space. The wall from the main entry was opened to the family room to allow access from the front and rear of the room. The door to the garage and rear patio door were relocated to allow for the half bath and for the furniture to be reconfigured
Added touches such as new railings and stair treads, new hardwood flooring in the kitchen and family rooms are blended professionally with the existing hardwood, and a new mantle to compliment the existing stone all add to this modernly classic and functional transformation.

The homeowners drew their inspiration from kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects featured on Houzz.com. The design options are a result of homeowners online research combined with an in-home consultation with Design Build Planners. There is also a proprietary profile checklist that homeowners fill out that depicts their lifestyle and room use. After compiling this information, Design Build Planners incorporates their construction knowledge and design creativity for the space with a focus on the budget and overall investment. Below are a few of their Houzz Ideabook pictures to give you a sample of their design tastes and input.
