York Blues…

Many decisions go into a kitchen remodel or building a new home, and we understand that it can be overwhelming for our clients. At Dovetailed Kitchens, we try to simplify the kitchen design process by providing a clear, consistent timeline. We measure the space, have a chat about our client’s needs and aesthetic preferences, draw up what we’ve discussed, and get approval from the homeowner. The cabinets get installed a few weeks after we get approval. Countertops are then templated and ordered. Appliances get installed, counters and backsplashes go in, hardware is added, and in a few weeks, you’ve got yourself a brand new kitchen!

We thought we would show you a little bit of this process using the perspective drawings of one of our favorite recently completed kitchens. This charming blue and white kitchen on the coast in York, Maine, features stainless steel appliances, white inset cabinets, a white tile backsplash, and a floor plan that maximizes space.

How is that for a before and after? From the page to cooking with grandchildren in a few months.

Another great touch in this charming kitchen is the granite topped seating area, perfect for grandchildren or a glass of wine with friends.

Whimsical details like the mosaic tile bird, blue knobs on the Thermador rangetop, antiqued bronze pulls and the homeowner’s Oriental inspired accessories give the all white kitchen personality.

So there you go! You’ve seen some of our perspective drawings, right next to the real thing. It’s always rewarding for us to see kitchens come to life, and we try our hardest to make the decision process an exciting, rewarding time for our clients.

Happy Thanksgiving from Dovetailed Kitchens and this adorable blue and white York cottage. We hope you enjoy this holiday season with family and friends…

As always, you can find this project on Houzz.
