Arlington, VA Kitchen Remodeling
Whether you use your kitchen to cook extravagant meals for your family or you like to arrange simply gatherings with friends, your kitchen is a room that you use every day, so naturally, it should reflect your style! At Wentworth, we find that Arlington homeowners are looking to modernize their kitchens so that they’re both functional and stylish. Kitchens are, in fact, one of the most common home remodeling projects. Smart and thoughtful kitchen remodeling not only adds value to your home but also contributes to increased daily enjoyment.
Wentworth, Inc. specializes in custom kitchen remodeling and kitchen design-build in the Washington, DC area, including Arlington. Many homes in this area are older, and we have experience modernizing these types of spaces while remaining sensitive to the original architecture.
A Kitchen Design Tailored to Your Arlington Home
Every Wentworth kitchen remodel begins with research. Based on the client’s needs, with a particular emphasis on meal preparation and dining habits, we form a unique plan suitable for the home and the homeowner. A truly stunning kitchen is one that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
We explore these commonly considered issues when embarking upon a major kitchen remodeling project:
- How will the kitchen be used? Mainly for cooking? Entertaining? A bit of both?
- What type of seating will best suit the kitchen’s primary use? 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 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?
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 an adjacent space. 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.
The details make all the difference, and our team considers every aspect—from the cabinetry to the countertops to the lighting—to ensure an end result that’s not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and efficient.
Design-Build in Arlington: New Rear Addition with a Kitchen
Kitchen additions are a great renovation option for older homes that are designed with small, dysfunctional kitchens. Kitchen extensions can increase the value of your home, modernize a historic house, provide more storage and prep space, and create a more cohesive flow in your Arlington home.
The Wentworth team completed a home addition and kitchen remodeling project in the Country Club Hills neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia. We built a large rear addition on an older, historic period home and renovated the space while staying sensitive to the original style.
The new kitchen features a central island with a granite countertop and bar stools, pendant lights, double ovens, a wine cooler, oak wood flooring, maple cabinets, and a cozy corner table.
