Kitchen design planning and process

Many people enjoy making a trip to our model homes and design center, which can help you pinpoint what you do and  don’t like. Here you can touch and see modern interior design concepts at work, as well as have all your questions answered by a knowledgeable team of kitchen renovation experts.

Our design program also includes an in-home consultation to hear your vision. Home renovation experts understand that a new kitchen is not just about a particular design aesthetic, but also about functionality. So we’ll discuss topics like how much traffic and entertaining the room typically receives, how often your family cooks, what you’ve loved about the mood and atmosphere of other people’s kitchens, and how much room you’ll need for storage.


From there, we can help you choose everything from wall textures and paints to countertops and cabinetry to make your dreams a reality. Any magazine clippings or web images you find can be incorporated into your ideal vision.

Montchanin Builders can implement every step of a comprehensive kitchen renovation, including:

  • Appliances
  • Backsplashes
  • Cabinetry
  • Countertops
  • Drywall
  • Electrical
  • Energy Star
  • Fixtures
  • Flooring
  • Hardware
  • Islands
  • Lighting
  • Plumbing
  • Sinks

We handle all the nitty-gritty details, so you have nothing to worry about from concept through completion. Our reputation for superior craftsmanship and impeccable customer service here in Delaware has landed us on nationally-syndicated HGTV shows.

Five modern trends in home renovation of kitchen

Our experts have identified five trends for Delaware kitchen renovation in 2014 that you may consider for your project:

1. Black & White Color Scheme – The timeless appeal of a black and white kitchen never goes out of style. High-contrast white counters with black appliances and countertops (or vice-versa) are beloved by designers right now. If you’d like, you can even throw in a splash of an accent color of your choice, evident in towels, rugs, curtains, or containers. These designs stun with their cleanliness and sheer simplicity.

2. Glamorous Styling – If your family loves to cook and eat, then let’s face it: the kitchen is really the heart and soul of the home! Foodies are starting to recognize this long-ignored fact and design accordingly. Designers may choose custom-painted cabinetry in rich, gemstone colors, accented by brass or chrome hardware, and lit with chandeliers or unusual pendants. They are radiant with resplendent beauty that will impress all visitors.

3. Open Shelves, Glass Front Cabinets & Statement Pieces – Presentation is important in the home these days. In the past, we were quick to hide all our kitchen goods, but modern trends are taking us toward proud presentation of a nice matching crystal wine glass set or an organized stack of colorful bowls. Perhaps we want to show off a little personalized style in the cookie and spice jars we choose, the monochromatic color of utensils we’ve selected, or the cookbooks we use on a daily basis.

4. Dark Paint Colors – It may defy convention, but a lot of homeowners are looking at darker and more vibrant paint tones for their busy kitchens. Black, deep brown, dark red and copper were a few of the colors that came up in Zillow Dig’s 2014 home renovation survey. This might work if you have very little wall space. Otherwise, you may want to paint the ceiling or just one wall with a dark, bold shade to prevent the space from feeling too confined.

5. Streamlined Design That Blends With Living Space – “Walls are going to continue to come down,” predicted John Petrie, the 2014 president of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. People are turning their focus to entertaining and creating a cohesive atmosphere throughout the main floor rooms of the home. Why not blend wood floors and cabinetry from the kitchen through the living room? Add a chandelier, leather, marble counters, neutral tones, and Old World styling from the living room and in through the kitchen.
