Kitchen Remodel In Cherry Hill
Our partner/manager Art Davidson worked with a family for a complete kitchen remodel in Cherry Hill. The kitchen layout was changed dramatically to give more storage and counter space, as well as seating for five at the island.
Our first step was to create the space by moving the laundry room to the second floor. We also decided to remove the wall between the kitchen and the old laundry room.
We used a variety of materials to round out the finished look: The cabinets we used are from Fieldstone Cabinetry, and we used the LaGrange beaded inset door finished in white paint on maple wood. We also used Silestone white quartz for the countertops.
The client also liked the idea of having wire inserts in some of the cabinet doors by the pantry and dry bar area. The impact of having the larger space and integrating the flow into the family room created an open floor plan the client was looking to achieve.
“We worked with Art Davidson from Cabinet Tree to remodel our kitchen. Art listened carefully to our vision as we described how we wanted to transform our kitchen and laundry room into a great room that would be the center of cooking, eating and entertainment to reflect our lifestyle. His design not only reflected our vision but also included many fine touches that blended quality and efficiency to fit our personalities. Art is professional, timely and worked seamlessly with our general contractor #Satisfiedcustomer”

Kitchen Remodel in Marlton, NJ
Josh and Marissa needed a kitchen remodel in Marlton, NJ, so they called Dixie. The couple wanted to add a larger island with room for plenty more cooking and entertaining in their kitchen space.
This larger area was meant to make it easier to work with cutlery and other cooking supplies with a designated spot for wine and beverages. The entire aesthetic of the kitchen was to be updated with efficient storage room. The Marlton couple wanted to base their design with details that reflected the family friendly atmosphere they hoped to keep, but also gave a sense of elegance.
The ultimate goal was: storage. Create as much room as possible, but for the home owners and their guests. They did this by incorporating a wall-implanted microwave and oven. To consolidate the area, they built a specific beverage center and appliance garage to house utensils.
“Dixie and the Cabinet Tree provided us with high class service, and high-quality products. Dixie did a tremendous job in listening to our thoughts and incorporating them into our design. We absolutely love our new kitchen.”

Kitchen Remodel in Shamong, NJ
Kristan recently lent her expertise to the Kent family for their kitchen remodel in Shamong, NJ. They met with Kristan, the architect and the builder to come up with an architecture plan that would bump out the back of the house and create a kitchen addition. The house was extended about 5 feet into the back yard, creating a larger kitchen space. The Kent’s always wanted an island and this addition provided that extra space for a large size island. The window was also increased is width and height to allow more light and the soffits were removed to provide taller wall cabinet.
The Kent family wanted a larger space so the entire family can enjoy the kitchen. In doing that, we increased the size of the window and recommended an off white painted cabinet to lighten up the kitchen. They also wanted a large island making it easier for the children to do their homework. They opted for a more decorative Ogee on the island top with a standard eased edge on all the tops on the perimeter, adding contrast to the kitchen.
We built a large walk in pantry in the corner of the kitchen for additional storage and the client added a decorative tile design above the range. This was done to break up the tile and to add a focal point to the kitchen. I suggested that they use a quartz counter top that are easy to clean and virtually maintenance free.

Kitchen Renovation in Medford Lakes
Meg recently worked with Barbara, a client who needed a kitchen renovation in Medford Lakes, NJ. The original Grafton Builder-home kitchen was in need of updating. Barbara was looking to redefine the space by designing a new kitchen layout while keeping the hallmarks of its classic feel.
The kitchen had quite a bit of work that needed to be put into it. Despite these necessary changes, Barbara wanted to keep the warmth of the original knotty pine cabin-style wood. For her spice cabinet, they agreed to eliminate the original curtain-fabric door configuration and Meg dedicated a lighted glass door to the new cabinet.
Barbara also wanted the new kitchen to function better, by relocating her range and dishwasher. New quartz countertops were to be added to give a concrete aesthetic without the downsides of legitimate concrete. Barbara expressed a desire for accents of blue, her favorite color.
They worked together to select a warm wood finish and simple door style that would be in keeping with the rest of her home. Due to the narrow dimension, Barbara couldn’t have a true island, but still wanted extra workspace, so different options were considered. Ultimately, they worked with her installer to create the movable table in the center and top it with the same “concrete”-look quartz she selected for the kitchen otherwise.
After completion Barbara was thrilled! She said:
“I worked with Meg S. and she was wonderful. Meg, thanks again so much for everything you did to make this a great experience! –I appreciate all of the extra time you put in to work with my many changes! You’ll get my high recommendation when the opportunities arise. I look forward to having our paths cross again one day.”
Features of This Kitchen Renovation in Medford Lakes:
- Maple, stained cabinetry to keep the warmth of the wood in the original knotty pine cabin-style cabinetry from 50+ years ago.
- Eliminate the soffits and crown the new cabinetry with a classic, simple cove molding.
- Dedicate a lighted, glass-door cabinet for her spices to replace the existing spice cabinet with
impractical cloth inserts.
- Make the kitchen work triangle more functional, by relocating the range and dishwasher.
- New, easy to maintain, quartz countertops to give the look of concrete without the downsides of real concrete tops.
- Tie in her love of the color blue as an accent.
We were more than happy to give Barbara the kitchen she envisioned! If you’re looking for kitchen renovation in Medford Lakes, give us a call today!

Once the vision was framed in detail, the work could get started. They started by taking down the wall, which created a sizable 15 1/2 island that has room for 8. The new kitchen also added almost 14′ for floor to ceiling pantries for storage.

Why Soft Close Cabinets Are Crucial to Any New Kitchen
Whether you’re remodeling your entire kitchen or just making a few updates to your current design, choosing which features you want to incorporate can be a daunting task. But what we have found from years in the industry is that the most important part of your kitchen is the storage and cabinetry!
This is why today we want to talk to you one of our favorite features…soft close cabinets!
Soft close cabinets are a simple addition to your cabinetry that will make a noticeable difference in your everyday life and will add a highly desired kitchen feature when reselling your home.
Here are 3 reasons you need soft close cabinets in your kitchen today!
They Are Quiet
To start with, an obvious benefit soft close cabinets are quiet! The hinges make your cabinet doors close effortlessly and silent. Yes, this comes in handy for that midnight trip to the kitchen when you’re trying to sneak a snack, or if you work early in the mornings and want to make sure you don’t wake the rest of the house! It also will help ensure that your little ones won’t slam the cabinet doors!
They Add High-end Value
Soft close cabinetry is often viewed as a high-end feature to have in a kitchen. While it has become much more common in modern day renovations, not all kitchens have them helping you receive maximum money back if you were ever to sell your home.
They Add Safety
Child or adult, we’ve all slammed our fingers in the cabinet doors by accident before and ouch! With the soft close feature, you won’t have to worry about that happening anymore!

Before Remodeling Your Kitchen Consider These Factors
What should you do before remodeling your kitchen? When remodeling your kitchen, it can be a big project, which is why it is essential to do your research and preparation before diving in. Here at the Cabinetry Design Studios, we want to help pave the way to a smooth kitchen remodel, so we’ve compiled a list of 4 things you should do before remodeling your kitchen.
Think About Layout
Most people have certain preferences when it comes to kitchen layout. Some prefer an open floor plan while others like to keep their prep space separate from their dining area. Think about how much storage you need, how much prep space is necessary, and if you have any special requests like a double oven for an avid baker. All of these aspects are important ones to note before you begin the process. We recommend making a list of wants and needs and then work from that when choosing your features.
Choose Your Colors
Before remodeling your kitchen, make a pinterest board, pinning what you like and what styles you gravitate towards. This will help you with your design process, especially when you utilize professional help with cabinet designers and specialists from the Cabinetry Design Studios. It’s important that you not only get what you need but that what you need is something you like. Kitchens hold a special place in a lot of hearts, so yours should reflect who you are.
Consider Time & Budget
Depending on the amount of work you’re having done in your remodel, you may have to abide by a strict timeline. There is often a specific order that remodeling teams prefer to assemble a new kitchen in, so working with a team of designers will help you move the process along smoothly so that everything gets done in a timely manner. However, before you even get to any of these steps, you should stop and consider your budget both for materials and labor. Write down how much you’re willing to spend and stick by that along the way. A helpful hint: leave yourself some wiggle room for any hiccups you hit along the way!
Consult with Professionals
As mentioned earlier, working with skilled professionals can bring a bit of peace to the process and allow you to enjoy some of the remodel’s more creative aspects, leaving the logistics to the professionals. If this is something you’re considering, the Cabinetry Design Studios professionals are here and ready to help. Contact us below!
