Do you have unique kitchen features that you love?

It’s outside undercover. So, it can be enjoyed despite inclement weather.

 

Was there a cabinet maker, builder, or anyone you’d like to give credit to regarding the inspiration, design or decorating of your kitchen?  We got our cabinets through werever.com cabinets based out of Florida.  Whitney Paden assisted with the design.  They were amazing to work with and provided complimentary designs and full plans.

 

Any other comments related to revealing your kitchen’s profile?

For an outdoor kitchen, we enjoy all of the storage space our cabinets provide compared to other outdoor options that we considered.

 

Here’s Whitney Padens story from werever.com about the process of how things worked with Rachelle Kline during the design through finished product:

When Rachelle Kline contacted Werever Outdoor Products for assistance with her outdoor kitchen, she had a good idea of the L-shaped kitchen she wanted to create, but was looking for design guidance as to what would specifically work best for her new deck area, and would best meet her needs and wants for the new space. Our Complimentary Design Service was just what she needed.

Rachelle provided us with conceptual drawings of the space, approximate dimensions of the kitchen area, the types of appliances she wanted to include, and information about how she would use the new outdoor kitchen. We discussed optimal cabinet layout and storage solutions, quality of appliance manufacturers and their options, and made selections of cabinetry color, door style, and decorative details for side and back panels.  She also perused our Outdoor Kitchen Gallery for inspiration photos, and shared a few of these to help us understand her vision for the final project.

We took Rachelle’s information and inspiration, and transformed it into a set of CAD-quality shop drawings, full color 3-D renderings, and a line item quote, presenting the preliminary design concept and budget for her new outdoor kitchen.

After a few revisions to this initial plan, and discussion of several layout options for the kitchen through conversations by phone and email, we finalized the design and budget for her cabinetry and appliances. Her order was then custom built specifically to meet her needs, and shipped in fully-assembled modules, arriving to her home just a few weeks later, ready for installation.

Curious about their product?  

Werever Products, Inc. manufacturers durable, waterproof cabinetry, designed specifically for outdoor use. Our cabinets are constructed using interlocking joints, similar to Amish furniture, with no supporting hardware, glue or welds; this means they are built to last in any environment. The material we use is a high density polyethylene (HDPE) that is resistant to hundreds of chemicals including chlorine, is UV-stabilized for full sun exposure, and will not spilt, fade, crack, chalk, and will definitely not absorb water. The cabinets are engineered for all climates, rain and snow, and extreme temperatures, hot or cold. Best of all, the cabinets require virtually no maintenance. You will never need to repaint or refinish, or be careful about what you use to clean them. Feel free to hose them off, use a pressure washer, or any household cleaner as you see fit. Werever’s unique HDPE outdoor cabinetry will last for years and years without ever showing its age, and are backed by a lifetime warranty.

Do you have unique kitchen features that you love?

“I live in a house built in the late 50’s and the kitchen had always been a small separate space in the home. With a lot of blood, sweat and tears (the blood and sweat were my contractor’s, – the tears were mine as I continued to spend more and more money than originally planned on my kitchen remodel) my kitchen is now open to the family room and a true entertainment space, thanks to the great ideas and collaboration with my contractor, Chris Marozin.’

“I love my breakfast bar which is a floating piece of granite without any cabinets underneath it. My contractor designed a custom steel support structure to hold the weight of the granite, giving it a floating effect.   With no cabinets under the island it really makes it feel part of the great room versus two separate spaces, which can be difficult to accomplish in an older home without major construction.”

“I had existing  granite stone walls and initially I was very uncertain about covering them with cabinetry, but we used that area as a bar/drink station. In the end, the cherry cabinets and the under cabinet lighting really highlight the  granite stone walls.”

“I have a Bosch glass range hood and Bosch induction cooktop that I love. I have a touch faucet, which is very convenient.”

“My microwave and oven are stacked one on top of each other and it really has the look of a double oven.  I like the streamlined look of the microwave versus it having a separate location.”

Do you have unique kitchen features that you love? We love our countertops and island along with the expansion and openness of our redesigned kitchen. Our island is unique with a double edge profile(an ogee edge profile on top of a full bullnose) making it look thicker (6 cm thick, normal is 3 cm) and totally unique. The veining in our stone is gorgeous and flows at all seams. We used the same color granite from our island to make a long threshold dividing the flooring of our kitchen and family room which allows for a smooth transition. Our island is designed more like a piece of furniture with the wood painted a charcoal color while the cabinets are cherry. The double drawer dishwasher is fantastic, especially during our large family gatherings.

Was there a cabinet maker, builder, or anyone you’d like to give credit to regarding the inspiration, design or decorating of your kitchen?

I did the majority of the work.  I repainted using Sherwin Williams durable quality paint.

By adding the granite countertop from Lesher’s( Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile), I was able to spruce up an existing space and utilize many existing items.

“We remodeled our kitchen beginning in January 2016.   This was not a complete remodel because we did a full overhaul in 1998 with new custom cabinets then so this time we just needed to update.”

“I wanted to enlarge my island and which meant having additional cabinets built that matched my existing cabinets.  Jim Marshall was recommended by Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile.  Jim was wonderful.  He really gave me good advice on how to achieve what I wanted.  He is a perfectionist! His work is very good.  He designed the additional cabinets and created an apron for the addition I wanted on my island.”

“So I had new countertops for the entire countertop and island.  I also utilized a tile person through Lesher.  He did a great job.  It is really done well.”

“A gentleman from Lesher helped me figure out under counter lighting, did the demo and hooked me up to be able to use my kitchen temporarily when it was torn apart.  He was very good at figuring out logistics of updates.”

“Mary Jane from Lesher helped pick out the sinks which I bought from Lesher.  I had already picked out faucets from the plumbing store.”

“Jim Marshall recommended a painter to me that turned out to be very good as well.  He and Jim were able to work together to communicate and move things forward without me, which was very helpful.”

The updates were all really fast.  I am very pleased with every aspect of the project.”

Any other comments related to revealing your kitchen’s profile?

“What stands out to me is the high quality of every recommendation we received and we ended up utilizing someone either directly or indirectly referred by someone from Lesher for every part of the project.”

Do you have unique kitchen features that you love?

“Yes, we love our Mocketts, which are towers of 3 outlets that lift up through the counter (www.mockett.com)!  We have a long counter without room for outlets in the backsplash, however we wanted to make sure we had plenty of power sources for small appliances. Judy at Colonial Craft Kitchens introduced us to Mocketts. We also love our Adorne by Legrand under cabinet system. Our outlets, light switches, USB ports and lighting are hidden under the cabinet to have a clean backsplash. We also used Adorne light switches throughout the first floor. Deck mounted garbage disposal air switch buttons are used to maintain the clean look. We included a TV in a cabinet behind pocket doors so not to miss any play of the big game.”

Was there a cabinet maker, builder, or anyone you’d like to give credit to regarding the inspiration, design or decorating of your kitchen?

“Don Klinger (Value By Design) was the architect who beautifully designed our house to keep it within the character of the neighborhood, but also captured the Italian-style “piazza” we wanted for the rear patio. The large windows at the rear of the kitchen allow us to enjoy the “piazza” even when inside. Judy Hays at Colonial Craft Kitchens spent a lot of time with us custom designing the perfect kitchen for our lifestyle.  Chip Arnold Designs, who helped us select the exterior and interior wall colors, painted the color and decorative painting finishes and the pantry door.  Our builder, O’Shea & Brubaker, worked tirelessly (and patiently!) with us as we searched for unique features to include in our home. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.”

Any other comments related to revealing your kitchen’s profile? 

” We wanted to make sure that the kitchen would be the center of the home and perfect for entertaining as every gathering always ends up in the kitchen! The kitchen is situated so that while we are in the kitchen, we are still a part of the party whether it’s in the great room or outside on the patio. We positioned the main sink on the island so that we could clean up while still talking to our guests. One must-have was a bar area to mix cocktails and Kevin O’Shea and Judy (Colonial Craft) worked hard to make it a reality as it meant moving beams and adding a third sink to the kitchen.  We also have granite from Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile in our master bath, master closet/dressing room, and powder room.”

Additional Rooms to see:

This past summer of 2016, a mud room off the kitchen area was updated with new cabinets from Colonial Craft  Kitchens  which  include a countertop and a backsplash made out of Palomino, a  natural stone.  It’s an unbelievable natural stone with its own character.   Plus there was a custom made copper strip created  as an accent piece.  Joshua Riggan from Riggan Crafted Metals creates custom metal accent pieces which can be incorporated into backsplash designs.    

Other areas of this home will be available to see on the day  of the tour too.  The master bath has rainforest granite throughout and  the powder room and master closet both have natural stone.
