Get inspired to tackle that kitchen re-do by these dream kitchens from local designers and builders.
1. This customized kitchen was added to a classic stone manor house that was on the Chester County Day tour. Locally crafted custom cabinetry, soapstone countertops, plaster walls and new custom columns adorn the kitchen. Tongue and groove bead board ceiling and hand planed beams create the window cupola, while beautiful salvaged heart pine floors add charm and character to this addition.

2. This kitchen will always be a favorite. The warm white cabinets and walnut island top create such an inviting feel, while the depth of the natural soapstone adds character and the black island grounds the room. The unique hood design and custom lighting are what make this kitchen personal.

3. Chrystal white Colortone cabinets with a pewter glaze brighten this traditional styled kitchen—a classic bright white look. An ebony colored island adds an accent to the center and a whisper of Old World charm to the space. Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances complete the kitchen’s new design.

4. A stunning, contemporary kitchen featuring high gloss cabinets, stainless steel accents and two islands. The unique and functional center island is a combination of materials—maple cabinets, stainless steel drawers, tubular legs and butcher block countertop. The barrel vault ceiling detail softens the angular design of the space.

5. This design has a minimal modern aesthetic that’s still inviting, spacious and warm. It incorporates a subtle and diverse range of greys—from a darker grey with hints of blue to a lighter grey marble backsplash that’s almost white—offset by the darker floor that grounds the kitchen’s lighter aesthetics. The layout of the cabinets, as well as the recessed island, open up the feel of the kitchen.

6. When designing a new kitchen, it’s important to stay consistent with the existing overall aesthetics of the home. This kitchen complements the French Country style of the home as well as function for a family that loves to cook and entertain. The details of the new kitchen transition well with the clients’ home.

7. A 300-year-old ballroom was converted to a bright kitchen, with custom coffered ceilings and floor-to-ceiling millwork. A track and rolling ladder were installed to provide access to the upper cabinetry that reaches the 12-foot ceilings. Dark marble countertops on the custom built island contrast with the light white Carrera marble backsplash for an elegant space.

8. This space has a crisp yet comfortable transitional style. Kitchen cabinetry is maple with a coastal gray stain for a “weathered” look that warms the room while retaining a cool palette. Black 30-sheen paint on the bar cabinetry separates kitchen and dining spaces. For sparkle—stainless steel appliances, brushed satin nickel hardware, backsplash mirror, glass doors and chandeliers.
