The Brick, New Jersey homeowners wanted to remove almost everything from their kitchen and design the space they had always wanted. They hired Design Build Planners to create a kitchen remodeling design. Pictured to the right is a dollhouse overview of the project.
To begin, the kitchen cabinets, counter tops, backsplash, soffits, and flooring were all to be removed. In addition, the wall partition from the dining room was to be taken down.
Here is the overview of the kitchen remodeling design scope:
- Remove kitchen cabinets, counter tops, backsplash, soffits, and flooring (kitchen and dining room)
- Remove dining room partition wall and enlarge living room opening (structural headers required)
- Relocate range to the living room wall
- Relocate refrigerator to the side wall
- Install new cabinets per plan, adding cabinets along living room wall
- Extend cabinets along removed dining room wall to form a peninsula with seating for three
- Maple painted cabinets, granite counter tops, glass mosaic backsplash
- Tile floor with wood base
- Add new lighting per plan, replace existing fluorescent light with a surface mount, and dining room light with recessed (cover existing ceiling holes)
- Cover texture ceiling with ¼” drywall and tape/spackle
- Paint kitchen and dining rooms
The homeowners style preferences were for modern finishes. They drew their inspiration from kitchen 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 kitchen 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.
