Chris and Bert’s Kitchen Before

Chris and Bert Kitchen Before

This Euro-style kitchen was created in a fine 1930’s home. It matches the eclectic taste of the owners, utilizing the highest quality products and finishes. This project included removal of all surfaces, re-wiring, relocation of plumbing, electrical, and gas service. Closure of an unneeded door way added better utility and storage capability. The kitchen features European cabinets, LED Lighting by Hafele™, Blanco™ sink, HansGrohe™ faucets, Miele™ and Wolf™ appliances. Careful placement of receptacles permitted an unbroken custom DalTile™ all glass backsplash. The Wolf™ professional gas cook top, retractable downdraft ventilation, and Miele™ Steam oven provide for the ultimate cooking flexibility. Other technology features include Ethernet, video feed, Ipad™ and iphone™ built-in chargers and dimmable LED under cabinet lighting. The clients selected a beautiful granite that worked well with both the backsplash and cabinet finishes. Custom made trim and custom bi-folding window sashes, preserve the 1930s appeal.

Kitchen Design

Carlton kitchen construction

Kathy and Carlton’s home is a 1950’s brick ranch home on a full walkout basement. This is Kathy’s childhood home and  return to it brought new ideas in accordance with the couples modern lifestyle. As with most homes from this era kitchen and living room area were completely separated. A section of this central bearing wall was removed by adding a supporting beam in the attic. This created a very modern and comfortable open plan with new views not previously available. The couple selected Showplace™ Rustic Alder cabinets, granite counters and a section of walnut butcher block counter adjacent to the range. Lighting includes pendant lights, recessed can lights and LED under cabinet lighting by Hafele. Discreet attractive angled receptacles, switches and USB outlets permit and unbroken span of tile backsplash along the eating bar. Now a comfortable Atmosphere exists for entertainment of friends and family.

One Heavy Kitchen Remodel – updating the heart of the home in an 1850 structure

Anne and Kenneth’s plantation kitchen remodel before and after

In the 1920s, an old porch was converted into a kitchen in the Whitethorn Plantation house, and the basement was dug. Though the kitchen had been updated occasionally, current owners Kenneth and Anne decided not only to bring it to modern standards, but also to restore it in a manner which fit into the historical home. Well- acquainted with period architecture and the house’s structure, the owners, along with Scott Gardener of Glencoe Museum and Rick and Diane Hyatt of Atmosphere Builders, developed a plan.

At some point, the kitchen ceiling was lowered from its original 11 feet to about eight feet, so we raised it as close as we could to the original height. The final design also incorporated three rooms into the spacious new kitchen, but there was a huge challenge: those 17-inch thick walls. We engaged Truesdell Engineering to provide structural design so several sections of load-bearing walls could be removed, and we installed I-beams for new supports. In the midst of the project, some 40,000 pounds of brick and the second story exterior wall of the house was being held up temporarily. The finished kitchen blends seamlessly with the period antique furnishings throughout the home and the mid-19th century architecture. The island, measuring 11 feet by 54 inches, provides the perfect food prep and gathering spot. Painted cabinets are solid maple with inset doors and drawers. A farm sink, bridge faucet, pot filler faucet, double ovens, induction cooktop and pop-up, downdraft ventilation create a functional and attractive space. To create an unbroken backsplash, Hyatt’s team tucked light switches and outlets under the upper cabinets, which have LED lighting under them. Video, Internet and phone connections are also incorporated in the hidden housings. The entire kitchen exudes class with porcelain tile flooring, custom crown molding and homeowner dedication to keeping an historic structure, listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register, updated for generations to come.

“The result is more beautiful than we imagined,” states Anne. “We are so pleased with the work done by Atmosphere Builders and its professional employees.”
