American Contemporary Kitchen Remodel in Fort Washington, PA

Located in Fort Washington, PA is a kitchen remodel recently completed by HomeTech Renovations that provided our clients with a space that accentuated their entertaining lifestyle and was able to support the couple’s love of cooking. The project not only included the kitchen remodel, but also an addition of a new living and dining space. The clients’ previously existing outdoor, screened porch was enclosed and revamped to create this space. The new layout of the spaces allowed each area to flow into the next, which created an open environment for family, friends, and guests to interact with each other.

American cherry, frameless cabinetry with a clear, natural finish and solid slab door and drawer fronts provides the kitchen with contemporary style. Natural materials such as Cosmic Black granite, hand-cut walnut travertine backsplash, and handmade cherry stools warm the space and make it feel welcoming, while the reeded glass inserts in the cabinetry and the decorative blown glass pendants above the peninsula further enhance the space’s contemporary design. Three tall pantry units provide ample storage, and the centrally located island offers additional useable counter space. A paneled beverage cooler and double wall oven allude to the clients’ love of entertaining and cooking, and a low profile retractable hood above the stove eliminates the need for a more traditional and bulky ventilation system. An integral desk along the pantry wall offers a small place to sit and write out recipes or pay bills.

Both the kitchen and the newly created living area located off of the new kitchen and the existing dining room entrance feature radiant heating under large format, tri-size porcelain floor tile. The living area incorporates new energy efficient Pella doors and windows and Velux skylights that brighten the space and provide open views of the freshly landscaped backyard. The range of tones found in the kitchen and living area, as well as the natural materials used throughout, tie the spaces together and create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

This kitchen took on quite a drastic transformation throughout the remodel. Below are some before and after photos:
