New country style kitchen in an old home.
This beautiful country-style kitchen is located in West Chester, PA and has all the upgrades that come with a new kitchen remodel, including traditional inset cabinets with black glaze and custom hand-selected and hand-hewn hardwood floors. Professional series appliances add a new age, fresh, clean look to this country kitchen and the stainless steel finishes help with breaking up all the cabinetry in this kitchen remodel. This kitchen remodel involved an addition on the back of the home to enlarge the kitchen footprint.
Falling home prices are making it more difficult for some homeowners to sell their home and many are now building additions in order to have the space they need. With additions you can design the space according to your own tastes and functionality. Additions can be affordable if you keep three things in mind:
- Selecting the right contractor
- Know your square footage pricing
- Build up (multiple stories) and not out (adding to the footprint)
These are rules to follow if you are budget friendly, but if budget is not exactly the first issue than you might think otherwise. Building out or extending the footprint (foundation) can cost up to two times as much, this is because pouring new footings adds extensive time and materials costs.
The manufacturer of these cabinets are DeWils, out of Washington State and are green friendly. DeWils offers plywood only construction and solid wood features to compliment any style or taste. From the beautiful door selections to the many finishing choices, these cabinets can accommodate any kitchen remodel. The appliances are from Wolf and SubZero along with Decor. The hidden dishwasher is from Miele and is a full stainless steel constructed dishwasher that has a very quite running mode (46db). Stanici Wood -Hoods are great not only to look at, but to use since they are extremely easy to keep clean and can lower fan reduction by 30% if installed correctly. This style of wood-hood has a removable front panel for servicing and a large mantel style shelf with hand carved corbels.
