Transitional Blend

Cranberry, PA

the details:

Originally, the client came to us wanting to open up the existing kitchen to the adjacent rooms by removing two large walls on either side of the existing kitchen. Much to our surprise, most of the heating and plumbing for the whole house ran in these two walls, making it challenging budget wise to move all of the pipes and duct and almost impossible to put a structural beam in the headers once we open the walls. Having to go back to the drawing board, we rearranged the space differently and eliminated an existing pantry to gain the more open kitchen the client was looking for. The client wanted an efficient, organized kitchen that is suited for a busy family with young children. They also wanted more updated finishes with a few “wow” factors. The client wanted a large island as the focus of the kitchen and an area for the young kids to put books and backpacks. The kitchen opens to a recently renovated, gorgeous and spacious deck area which is important to the family for entertaining and having parties. This project included all new hardwood flooring on the first floor and new staircase components as well.

Features & Challenges of the Project:
  • During the space planning stage, not being able to open up the walls on either side because the amount of heating and plumbing in the walls was a disappointment (we had to go back to the drawing board to figure out how to open up the kitchen without taking out those walls)
  • Creating proper walkways in the space without compromising the size of the island
  • Cool gray shaker cabinets on perimeter
  • Painted white cabinets on island and refrigerator wall area
  • Brush gold finishes and fixtures
  • Hubbardton Forge Sprig light pendants
  • Cassie Chapman Marble and Mother Pearl finial-shaped mosaic backsplash
  • Simple white quartz countertops with gray veining
  • Silgranite sink
