The kitchen is the heart of the home in most modern living situations. If there is any room in the house that has experienced the most shift in attitude over the last century or so, it would be the kitchen. Kitchens in older homes were typically not considered to be a “public” space. They were work and food preparation areas not seen or accessed by guests. Always utilitarian, they were often hot, dark, and very cramped because the allotted space in the house was reserved for more prestigious living rooms and formal dining rooms. Adding to the problem of the small floor plan is the advent of modern appliances. The refrigerator as we know it today is the 900-pound gorilla in the kitchen of most historic homes. Six burner ranges, dishwashers, wine coolers and trash compactors are conveniences demanding their place in today’s kitchens. Trends toward entertaining guests while preparing food and displaying prestigious cookware and appliances have changed our expectations for our kitchens dramatically.
Our scope of kitchen design and renovation includes simple updating to total demolition and reworking of the space. You may wish to expand your kitchen’s presence in the floor plan of your home. There are an enormous number of tile, flooring, cabinet, and countertop finishes suited to every budget. John will help you create a kitchen that is highly functional while visually pleasing and welcoming to your family and guests. We can take the room that was once the least desirable room in your home and make it a showplace!
