These Atlantic Highlands, NJ clients have an 100 year old home that has been in the family for the last 50+. While they love the home, they were in need of a few remodels. As homeowners who love to cook and entertain, the kitchen was the first place to start, with some other projects as potential next phases. The Design Build Planners created designs for the project. To the right is a dollhouse overview of the project.

The homeowners drew their inspiration from kitchen 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 couple of before photos of the existing space. Also below are the final computer designs created by Jason Parsons, a Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler. Follow along with the project’s progress as photos will be added.
