It’s often referred to as “the hub of the home,” “the gathering place,” “a major selling point.” It is without a doubt, the kitchen can be the heart and soul of a home. This Sharon, MA kitchen renovation exemplifies all that and more. As professional kitchen contractors, we were thrilled to partner with this family, refreshing their space, ready to welcome guests for all celebrations.
It was evident from our initial consultation meeting, just how important hosting is for this family. From graduation parties to annual holiday gatherings, this home is meant to welcome loved ones. This initial meeting is critical for our team. Whether producing the design through our Design Build process or working with a fellow trade professional as in this case, we did with Design by Melanie. The vision is created, presented and approved at the design meetings. We always recommend an approximate 2-4 month design phase (depending on the size of the project). This allows for final cabinet layouts, material selections and ordering products. That way, once our team arrives for demolition day, the blueprint is already mapped out, with little interruption to the homeowner or the process.
Our team installed the beautiful Owner selected back splash tile which adds a nice pop of color next to the off-white cabinets yet pulls out the deep blue in the island base cabinets.
Perhaps my favorite part of the renovation is this side bank. It can be used for extra storage, a drop zone or best yet, a hosting space for drinks, appetizers or desserts. Or perhaps it’s part of the buffet line on the way to the dining room. It provides a space for guests to congregate but yet, not interfere with a busy kitchen during a party.
I’m not sure what the homeowner decided to put behind these doors, and they have plenty of other storage down the hall but extra space for the not-used-every-day-but-often-enough mixer, blender, crockpot, Air Fryer etc… is super helpful. Best yet? It doesn’t crowd the counter space!
