Dream Kitchen in Ambler

Chrisse & Matt had just settled on their property when they met Stephanie.  Chrisse had a clear vision of what she wanted in her kitchen update; a new backsplash, new countertops and  updated, brighter colors for her cabinetry.  Stephanie immediately noticed the oddly shaped island with its limited seating.  Knowing that the floors were being refinished (starting in 48 hours) Stephanie spoke with Chrisse & Matt about the opportunity to move the island cabinet that was creating the odd shape to the front of the island. Within 24 hours, Stephanie arranged for the countertop to be removed and the cabinet to be repositioned so that the flooring in the old footprint of the island could be refinished to blend with the rest of the house. 


Chrisse was also not thrilled with the ornate rope trim and fluted moldings on the cabinetry so Stephanie had her carpenter remove those pieces too.  After the cabinet color choices were made, Chrisse & Stephanie selected hardware, countertops & tile color that would complete the look.  The finished product is an updated, beautiful, functional space that Chrisse & Matt’s family can enjoy for many years to come!

Based on our discussions, we made the following changes:

  • Replaced all doors & drawer fronts with maple, shaker style doors which included soft close hinges
  • Replaced all drawer boxes with solid wood, dovetail constructed, full extension, soft close drawer glides
  • Expanded the island by adding a trash/recycle cabinet along with a bookcase and customized shiplap in a contrast color
  • Removed the pantry closet as well as the drywall soffit from above the refrigerator/wall oven area, transforming the space into a “family command center”
  • Customized the cabinets by adding a three-piece soffit molding to the top and light rail molding to the bottom of the upper cabinets
  • Designed & built a custom bench seat for eat-in area with two operating lids for additional storage
  • Shopped with Josh & Lauren for countertops and backsplash and coordinated the installs of each
  • Selected lighting, cabinet hardware & wall color
  • Guided the color choices and style on the new kitchen table

"Working with Stephanie, Jesse, Richie, John & Dave exceeded my expectations. They were professional and very organized and it showed in the quality of their work. When I first met with Stephanie, she was able to quickly help me identify what needed to be done in order for my dream kitchen to come to life. I am beyond thrilled with the end result and would highly recommend Stephanie and the Custom Cabinetry Finishes team!"
