Kitchen Remodel In NH

This 47-year-old kitchen had not been renovated or touched since the day it was built with the exception of the kitchen sink faucet replacement. From the carpeted floors (yes carpeted) to the harvest gold appliances and the plywood kitchen cabinets this kitchen was beyond the need for updating. This particular kitchen was a real challenge. Since the overall room was long and narrow (10’ x 15’) and trying to maintain a decent amount of counter space was proving to be very difficult. The old layout had less than 8’ lineal feet of open counter space and I wanted to triple it if I could. In the original layout the space eaters was the refrigerator and the wall oven. Moving or eliminating them from the space would open up the kitchen and hopefully provide the counter space I was looking for.

In the final design I wasn’t able to triple the counter space like I was hoping but I came real close. By eliminating the wall oven then moving the refrigerator to the back wall and recessing it into that wall (Thanks Peter:) it allowed us to dramatically open up the overall kitchen counter space which then gave us approximately 22’ lineal feet of counter space. A small kitchen with a large feel.

Here are some of the specifications on the kitchen…

⦁ Painted Maple Custom Cabinets
⦁ Crown & Light Rail Molding
⦁ Soft Close Hinges
⦁ Under Counter LED Lighting
⦁ Granite Counter Tops
⦁ Stainless Steel Appliances
⦁ Slide In Double Range
⦁ Garbage Disposal
⦁ Dishwasher
⦁ Built In Microwave
⦁ Recessed LED Lighting
⦁ Ceramic Tiled Floor
⦁ Tiled Backsplash

This small kitchen renovation turned out some big results. Staying within the same footprint of the original kitchen we were able to nearly triple the amount of counter space and significantly increased cabinet space. The cabinet style gave this kitchen great timeless style. Compared to the original the new design makes this kitchen bright, warm and inviting.
