Kitchen Remodeling in Bellmawr, NJ
Ideal Remodeling recently finished a kitchen remodeling in Bellmawr, NJ that went well beyond the kitchen and changed the layout of the entire first floor. This project is one of my favorites! Not because of the selections that were made or level of finish applied but because of the family it has made a difference for! It’s great to remodel homes with the latest trends but better to remodel homes for good people. That is exactly what we did here. We listened to the client and gave them the home that they have always hoped for one day. The gratitude that has been expressed to us makes all the hard work we put in not so hard after all.
So let’s talk about the project! This was a small Cape Cod style home in Bellmawr NJ that was built in a time where builders pretty much put as many rooms in a house as they could. Open floor plans just weren’t considered practical and they didn’t have the capabilities without using steel beams as we do today. We removed 2 walls in this home. One was separating the kitchen from the living room which was non load bearing. The other was between the kitchen and a room at the back of the home which was load bearing. This required an lvl beam, steel posts and footings in the basement. This new floor plan opened up the option to replace a window in the rear with a gliding patio door to access the backyard. Then closing off the side entry completely to make more wall space for cabinets.
With all of the changes in this home it took some serious planning. We added entry doors, removed walls, relocated radiators and even add a landing and stairs where there wasn’t one. In the end it is now a home that this family can entertain in comfortably without moving from the home they raised their children in! We travel this particular road frequently and are sure to get a good feeling for many years when we pass by this home!
