Remodeling? Consider These Points

Taking on a home improvement project can be a big decision. You will have many decisions to make and depending on the extent of the project, it can seem overwhelming at first glance. When thinking about remodeling your kitchen or another space in your home, you will want to consider some of the following things before committing.

Take some time and reflect on how you and your family use the kitchen. Do you host a lot of gatherings and holidays? Are you constantly needing more work/prep space or more refrigeration for food and drinks? Or maybe it is the opposite and you have too much space allotted for pantry storage when you really need more counter space.Wellesley, MA Kitchen Remodel

Our job is not only to design you a beautiful space, but to also really learn how we can cater our design and details to your specific needs. Do you need storage for that giant lobster pot that is a must have, or maybe for the large mixer that is a staple in most kitchens?  Does a portion of the kitchen need to be Kosher? We can help walk you through each major decision and offer our solutions until we find the perfect fit.

There may be other work that you wish to have done during the remodel. Replacing the cabinetry, appliances & countertops are the go to standards, but is there more? Replacing or refinishing the floors, taking that wall down and opening the floor plan up, maybe replacing the window or door and updating the trim. All of these changes and plenty more can go alongside a kitchen remodel.

If you are considering a full remodel and would like to discuss your options we would be happy to speak with you in detail. Please visit our showroom during our business hours or give us a call at 781-239-9750 to make an appointment.

Transitional Design: What Exactly Is It?

If you have been researching design ideas for a new kitchen project then you most likely have come across the term ‘transitional design’. It is a design concept that is by far our most requested style when it comes to kitchen design. Transitional design is essentially traditional style mixed with just the right amount of contemporary flair. The combination of styles will deliver a timeless design that you will be able to enjoy for years to come.

Cabinetry color is one way to express a transitional design. Often times the color choice will be of a white/off-white, grey or an earthy tone such as beige or tan. It is also not unusual to see a mixture of colors; a white perimeter with a grey island can capture the transitional elements quite nicely and it can be very pleasing to the eye.

Simplistic door details are popular with transitional design. This can mean anything from a flush inset cabinet with a classic shaker doorstyle to something with a more traditional door bead. Keeping things minimalistic and streamlined in the design will result in an ideal transitional design. It is a wonderful concept for New Englanders who are often times trying to marry their classic style home with a sophisticated new kitchen. Transitional design can create a seamless link between both ends of the spectrum.

Hardware choice can play a large role as well, yet it’s often overlooked in the design process. You could easily pull a bit more contemporary, if that is your desire, by choosing a more modern knob or pull for the cabinetry. On the other hand, you could choose a warmer and more classic knob or pull and it will bring the design closer to the traditional style.

Whether you choose to head down the transitional avenue, or keep with a more traditional or modern style, we can be of great assistance when ironing out all of the details for your design. We would be more than happy to speak with you about all of the available options.
