NJW is  known for our kitchen remodels and we were recently recognized for one of our kitchen projects. We were awarded the CotY award (Contractor of the Year). Over the last few weeks we have been sharing our CotY award winning kitchen- Take a look at PART III of this series!



Notice the subtle stove bump out area that appears to be for purely aesthetic reasons, yet is primarily for accommodating mechanicals within the home. This is camouflaged multiple ways; utilizing seamless stainless steel countertops, installing glass wall tile on all backsplash wall surfaces and floating shelving units that are notched around bump out to keep site lines clean and unified.



This original enclosed kitchen design layout is made to feel even more confining through the use of dark cabinetry.


Stainless Steel Highlights Throughout

-Appliances – Cabinetry Hardware

-Counter Tops – Sink and Faucet Fixtures

These contemporary stainless steel accents create unity and accentuate clean lines within the kitchen interior.



Underutilized base cabinetry area between dishwasher and refrigerator. (critical area for redesign)


-Refrigerator is moved to the left to allow space for a floor to ceiling 15” pantry unit between the refrigerator and laundry chute.

-Space remaining to the left of the refrigerator receives a base cabinet to provide storage space for the less often used freestanding kitchen appliances.


Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) overhead support beam was laminated with wood to match the existing eating area open beam, tongue and groove, wood ceiling design/detail. Where the dividing wall was removed at the new peninsula the existing eating area flooring had to be extended using the tooth-in flooring technique. Both these

finishing details help create a natural and smooth transition from new to old.
