A Recipe for Kitchen Remodeling Success

Every Wentworth project begins with research. Based on the client’s needs, with a particular emphasis on meal preparation and dining habits, we form a unique plan that suits both the home and the homeowners. A truly stunning space is one that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Our team explores these commonly considered issues when embarking upon a major kitchen remodel:

  • How will the kitchen be used? Mainly for cooking? Entertaining? A bit of both?
  • What type of seating is the most suitable? A breakfast nook? Bar space and barstools? An elegant dining room table?
  • How can the home be altered to suit the existing structure and architectural style while adding space and function?
  • How do the home’s age, style, and period impact the aesthetics of the kitchen to ensure a seamless integration of the old with the new?
  • Will the addition of new windows and doors with access to the outside increase natural light and overall enjoyment of the space?

Kitchen remodeling with us will minimize stress and maximize the enjoyment of your home. We have successfully remodeled countless Washington, DC area kitchens with exceptional results, on time and within budget. A Wentworth kitchen provides happiness and increased home value.

The Wentworth Value

When you renovate your kitchen with Wentworth, we take care of every detail. There’s no need to hire a separate kitchen designer and interior designer. Our in-house architects and interior designers will help plan your new kitchen layout, assist with appliance selection, and guide you through the myriad kitchen finishes, from countertops to lighting fixtures. Our in-house estimator guarantees you get the most for your budget and allows us to track your project from the design phase through construction documents and into a final fixed-priced construction contract. Before our construction team even touches a kitchen cabinet, you’re in the loop.

An onsite presence expedites the overall project while providing oversight for daily work flow and deliveries to your home.

 

Kitchen Renovation Tips

The Right Fit

Because Wentworth specializes in remodeling kitchens in older homes to fit contemporary lifestyles, we are uniquely attuned to the challenges of designing a kitchen for older, urban homes. With a thoughtful design, one that takes into account the homeowner’s life and the home’s historic charm, a dark galley kitchen can be transformed into a modern and sunny cooking and entertaining space. Every inch matters in a small kitchen. Removing the wall between the kitchen and an adjoining room can add much needed space to a galley kitchen. On occasion, and depending on the home’s existing layout, a kitchen may be expanded into the dining room with base cabinets for storage. Additional cabinets maximize storage and minimize the need for additional dining room furniture. Adding space isn’t the only way to maximize impact in a small, urban kitchen. Frosted glass cabinets provide visual interest and contribute to an open feel, while straight runs of cabinetry prevent the need for space-wasting dead corner cabinets.

Informal Is the New Formal

An open plan kitchen typically fits with a homeowner’s modern, informal lifestyle. This is especially true in older, urban homes (we have a lot of experience renovating DC townhouse and row house kitchens) where a seldom-used formal dining room is wasted space. Through the reconfiguration of interior space, a small kitchen and neighboring dining room can be combined into an elegantly cohesive dining and entertaining space. Sometimes the key to great kitchen remodeling can be something as simple as lighting. Strategic use of lighting and furniture designed for day-to-day life and special occasions minimizes cost and maximizes your home’s value.

It’s in the Details

A successful kitchen remodel is more than just a reconfiguration of interior space. In kitchen remodeling, small details make all the difference. Cabinets with rollout shelves provide discreet and necessary storage. Former dead space can become a surprising and usable kitchen pantry. Glass cabinet doors mixed with solid cabinet doors create a sense of lightness, pattern, and movement in any kitchen. An arch designed to match the home’s existing architectural details can be inserted between the kitchen and the dining room, defining the space while maintaining the home’s style and charm. A recycled glass tile backsplash provides style and color to a kitchen with minimal environmental impact. With the help of our interior design team, a unique faucet or an artful light fixture can turn everyday function into a conversation piece.
