Designing a Modern Chic Kitchen in New Jersey

10:36 pm
Suburban Chic in Mahwah NJ

Designing a modern kitchen means more than just incorporating the most contemporary design features of the day, it means having the ability to make decisions based off of your desires for design. Integrating chic features into a modern design, while maintaining efficiency in space, and staying true to your character.

Let’s highlight a kitchen remodeling project done by our team, where we brought chic urban style to the suburbs in Mahwah, NJ.

Suburban Industrial Mahwah NJ

Minimalism in the Kitchen

A minimalist design approach was used to create a contemporary, industrial look and feel for the space. This kitchen design is great for families who cook several meals a week at home, it takes high-capacity usage as well, and keeps the cleaning process down to a minimum. A few great pieces of art can help integrate your character among a minimalist kitchen.

Stainless Steel Features

In this Mahwah, NJ Kitchen we incorporated stainless steel countertops to complement the semi-custom cabinetry in cherry with a chocolate stain and provide contrast. The custom stainless steel hood offers both utilitarian and aesthetic value, flowing seamlessly into the surrounding Gagganau & Miele appliances and cabinetry and facilitating efficient ventilation while cooking.

Modern Islands

Last but certainly not least, the spacious island affords ample space for food preparation and a nexus for socializing with friends and family–because after all, regardless of your intentions, company tends to migrate straight to the kitchen. Large islands allow for your family and friends to gather around in the kitchen without everyone having to stand in one place. You can place bar chairs around the island so your guests have a place to sit while you work in the kitchen, or even have a chance to get them involved in the cooking!

With contemporary, or modern kitchens, you get to keep your personal style, without sacrificing efficiency, design, and function.

Trade Mark Design & Build is a team comprised of NJ Kitchen Remodeling experts. We offer high-quality kitchen remodeling in North Jersey and the surrounding area. A specialized team of designer-builders will assist a project director in the design and construction of anything you can think of.

Kitchen Gadgets: Part 2

7:17 pm

bergen county contractorWe’ve recently discussed a few new kitchen gadgets for 2013 and how they can make or break a New Jersey kitchen remodeling project. Well, let’s take a look at another round of top-of-the-line gadgets that could very well inspire you to update your kitchen and your cooking lifestyle!

  • Clocking in at one of the more expensive “gadgets” is the new Mugnaini Wood-Fired Pizza Oven ($6,500-$9,550). Certainly something you would plan around a home remodeling project, this oven gives you the key to endless delicious homemade pizza!
  • It’s the future. Stop going to your grocery store for rotisserie chicken and start spinning your own. The La Cornue Rotisserie ($10,000) is sure to be the talking point of your kitchen. Without the need for any special ventilation, this rotisserie can be seamlessly added to your suite of cooking tools.
  • If you and your family love to cook a lot, this next kitchen feature is a necessity. The Rohl Swing Arm Pot Filler ($2,200) is installed near the stove surface so you don’t have to lug heavy, dangerous pots of water across the kitchen. Simply fill up and bring to a boil.
  • Throwing parties regularly? The Wolf Warming Drawer allows for early preparation of larger dishes by keeping them warm and covered for later meals or late arrivals.

Everyday Kitchen Tips

6:55 pm

Let’s face it, when it comes to keeping a clean, organized, and put-together kitchen, the kitchen cabinets are just the beginning. Everyday use and storage quickly jumps the forefront of importance for a meticulously organized kitchen space. Here are a few tips to keep your cooking, cleaning, and general kitchen use as efficient and savvy as possible:

  •  To relieve your hands from the smell of garlic and onion, simply wash them with warm water and baking soda, or you can even rub them against any stainless steel element.
  • Get the most out of your fresh squeezed juices by microwaving them for about 20 seconds, letting them sit for a minute, then rolling them on the counter with some pressure.
  • If you need to reheat any type of bread in the microwave, simply place a cup of water with it to add much needed moisture to the air.
  • Separate your onions and potatoes—they both make each other go bad at a faster rate.
  • In just a few minutes, with a bucket of water, ice, and salt, you can easily cool down your lukewarm bottle of wine or beer.
  • To help eliminate odors from the garbage disposal, grind up some excess orange or lemon peels. If it’s really bad, you can even freeze vinegar ice cubes and grind those as well!

These tips (coupled with your NJ kitchen remodeling) will quickly, for better or worse, make your kitchen the most popular get-together space!

Kitchen Gadgets: Part 1

5:33 pm

kitchen remodeling bergen countyKitchen gadgets have always been a prominent feature in a home’s kitchen area, whether it’s hooking up all your devices to the Internet or a deluxe cappuccino maker. Let’s take a look at a few of the latest kitchen gadgets to complement your recent New Jersey kitchen remodeling. You can decide for yourself if they’re worth the, sometimes, outrageous price tag:

  • The Hammacher Juicer, priced at $9,900, is considered one of the best juice machines ever made—we certainly hope so for that price tag! What makes it special? The juicer expertly separates the juice from every other part of the whole fruit.
  • Continuing in the thread of extravagance, Hammacher makes a Double Espresso machine complete with an ornate copper dome and a brass eagle. Sure, it looks great and makes a killer cup-of-Joe but at $8,000 a pop, it may just be worth stopping by your local coffee shop.
  • The Margaritaville Frozen Smoothie Maker is a bit more on the affordable side of the spectrum; costing only $550, it could bring new life to your friend or family gatherings. The drink maker can be pre-programmed to create six of your favorite drink combinations and is sure to keep you cool during the hot summer months!

Kitchen Appliance Advancedment

5:58 pm

bergen county contractorIt’s 2013. Some of us are wondering where our auto-filling refrigerators and ultra-dehydrated Back To The Future-esque meals are. It seems that many of the kitchen upgrades taking the country by storm aren’t so much futuristic and flashy as they are modeled after large-scale commercial kitchens. Sure, there are endless models of flashy refrigerators with streaming Netflix and temperature-controlled kitchen cabinets. If you talk to any real kitchen pro, however, you’ll find that the real trend is modeling these appliances after commercial kitchens—often ignoring some of the flashier aspects of technology change.

Ranges and cook-tops are moving from the traditional four-burner style to a more expansive range, often requiring an entire kitchen remodeling project. With a multi-unit range you have the capability to go beyond the traditional kitchen style and try out griddles, steamers, and fryers, while having commercial ventilation available at all times. The overall kitchen designs are changing to incorporate dedicated task stations with flexible and smaller appliances when available. This makes the kitchen very task-oriented and easy to keep different aspects of cooking separate from others. The sink is another major difference. We’re starting to move from sleek and to industrial size with hands-free technology.

Stone Countertop Options

8:46 pm

home renovation nj

Stone is one of the most beautiful and elegant options for countertops, and judging by the popularity boom, individuals undergoing kitchen remodeling in Bergen County NJ are on the same page as the rest of the country. Well, what are the advantages and disadvantages compared to wood and metal options?

Stone options are much more durable and are able to withstand the pressures of a hectic kitchen atmosphere. As we mentioned before, they have unique styles not found in wood and metal. One issue, however, is that they require a bit more maintenance down the line because of the naturally occurring pores found in rocks and minerals—given the inherent moist environment, this makes perfect sense. Here is a quick look at a few popular stone options:

  • Granite: Granite is one of the most popular countertop choices and is easily one of the more durable and longer-lasting of choices. If you’re looking for kitchen cabinets in New Jersey, you’ll find a plethora of granite options that match any cabinet style.
  • Marble: The only downside to marble is that it is considered slightly less durable than granite, but it does get style points. Marble works in any type of kitchen, from modern to classic.
  • Quartz: The final stone option to review costs much less than the rest. However, the style is much more uniform and looks a bit less unique. The durability, however, is still top notch!

Increase Your Living Space, Love Your Home

7:57 pm

NJ home remodeling Our overall goal as your design build company is to, quite simply, make you love your home. We’ve previously discussed how a kitchen renovation or kitchen cabinet redesign can improve your home, but you have plenty of other options for home improvement everywhere around your home.

  • Add-A-Level: One of our larger-scale projects, adding a level is a great way to increase the value of your home and create a massive amount of extra space! Whether you want to add one room or go all out with a three-room addition, you’ll immediately love your loads of extra room.
  • Basement Renovations: You may not realize it, but your unfinished basement is a diamond in the rough! Clear out the clutter of your basement and finally turn it into a home office or entertainment area (you can even toss a bar down there!).
  • Master Bedroom: So, the kids are finally out of the house and you have an extra room or two? Perfect. Knock down a couple walls and create the master bedroom of your dreams (you deserve it).
  • Wine Rooms: We previously wrote about custom wine rooms for your home—in essence, they give your wine collection a safe place of its own and keep your bottles out of the kitchen.
