“Every one loves the kitchen. We love working in it. It couldn’t have come out better. It’s my favorite room.
The key is finding a cabinet maker that is open to suggestions and is willing to work with you. The guy we got was great. Every time I had an idea, he executed better then I had dreamed!”- E.S. (via Facebook) Plains, PA
This redesigned Bloomsburg, PA kitchen features natural cherry cabinets with flat Shaker panel doors, and inset doors and drawers.
All of our cabinetry is constructed with solid local lumber and FSC-certified furniture grade plywood and the finest hardware,
including soft-close self-closing undermount slides.
Changes to the original layout include 3″ more of cabinet wall length in either direction and a furniture-style hutch and island that would be painted a satin distressed black. Shaker wood knobs would be a matching black. There will be seven paneled ends including three sides of the island. The reworked design has a drawer to the right side of the range, for cooking utensils or spices.The island legs would be attached to the cabinetry and the apron around the counter would be eliminated (corbels would be included if need be, to support the countertop). The hutch has furniture legs and a decorative apron as well as an upper section primed for display- with two divided light doors, a beadboard back and corbeled sides that extend to the counter. The base of the hutch houses a blind corner larder unit that utilizes the hidden space, in addition to three drawers. To the left of of the hutch is an open bookcase for cookbooks. The garbage and recycling pullout has been relocated to the right of the ovens, close to the sink and dishwasher.
Here is a grouping of original furniture in a bedroom setting. The large armoire, bookshelf, dresser, and poster bed are all built out of walnut.
The natural cherry bedside changing table does triple duty as nightstand and dresser. The tall painted hutch has hidden storage and display spaces. It would work well in a more public spot in a home, such as a dining room or family room. Grey is a versatile neutral color that complements most decor.
