Kitchen is where home is. A good, functional kitchen not only enables you to put good food
on the table, but it is also the best place for you and your family/friends to socialize and get together.
Whether it is Victorian style or contemporary style, granite surface or wooden surface, no project is too big or too smal for Heirloom Design Build. Check out our the pictures of our kitchen projects, let us know what aspects you like and give us your comments below!
The homeowners of this Chester County home, designed by historic restoration architect John Milner, wanted to update their cramped kitchen to make it brighter and more functional, while
staying true to the traditional farmhouse style of the house. To achieve this goal, Pine Street Carpenters designed a new kitchen incorporating custom bead-board cabinetry and solid maple countertops. To open up the kitchen and create more space, a custom hutch with period hardware was built-in along one wall of the kitchen and the exterior wall was pushed back. Centered in the kitchen is a custom bead-board multi-function island. The hand-selected cherry wood top works for prep cooking and dining, and the bead board base is loaded with storage. Environmentally-friendly cork flooring was used throughout the kitchen, and custom mahogany doors connect the kitchen to the outdoors, leading to a hardscaped patio.
But with a smart design solution for reconfiguring interior space, the home was given new life in this remodel of a kitchen, adjoining breakfast space, family room, and laundry room.
Clear client requirements – an open floor plan fusing living and kitchen space – were met with a carefully planned kitchen that maximizes counter space and storage often only seen in larger homes. Reconfiguration of the current floor plan, made possible by the removal of a redundant hallway, ensures a kitchen traffic flow around the kitchen's work area – a design choice that resulted in a multifunctional entertainment and living space. Access now flows easily from the garage through the laundry room to the kitchen and into the dining room, and from the foyer through the family room into the kitchen. The newly configured kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, built-in wall ovens, and much-needed kitchen storage. Removing a closet in the once unattractive and largely inefficient laundry room made way for new cabinetry, a new laundry sink, and a new stack washer/dryer unit. Smaller details, from custom built-ins to a secret drawer for printer storage, gave the home character and charm.
Does a kitchen have to be big to be beautiful? Can small kitchens satisfy? We think that beautiful kitchens come in all shapes and sizes! Here is what REALLY matters: 1. It's not the
size, it's the functionality! Create a kitchen that functions for You! When remodeling an Atlanta kitchen, we consider everything from the families' shopping habits to the chefs' heights to ensure we create a space that works for the family that lives there! 2. Proper landing and prep space and adequate/comfortable traffic flow are possible even in smaller kitchens. If you don't entertain and prefer a smaller kitchen, there is nothing wrong with that! 3. If resale is a consideration either now or in the future, factor that in to all your kitchen decisions when you remodel. Whether you love big or small kitchens, consider the opposite point of view to ensure some universal appeal if you'll need to sell your home in 5 - 7 years.Questions about kitchen remodeling?

I saw it was a #MyKitchen week over here at hometalk, so I'm adding my imperfect little Swedish kitchen remodel to the mix.
It's the DIY kitchen remodel that never ends. Why? Because of the DIY part!
We're ALMOST done. But we've been ALMOST done for the past 3 years! Now it's all about getting up those final pieces of trim, and finally deciding what to do as treatment for the windows (if anything).
What I can say is that we've come a LONG way from where we started when we moved in. I didn't realize so many different kinds of wood and surfaces could be fit into one small space until I moved into my 1971 Swedish renovation home! See the entire remodel at the link below. #MyKitchen
When we bought this old house three summers ago, the backyard was a nightmare. I remember standing on the back porch with the realtor and saying, "Wow, this could be beautiful." She looked at me as if I were out of my mind. ;-)
