Edison Heights by Wood-Mode


Edison Heights represents an urban environment that weaves a rich fabric of cultural, educational, and economical opportunities for younger professionals who are calling it home. They are beginning to update existing homes in residential city neighborhoods with the latest technology and materials while retaining many of the architectural details of the original building. This blending of traditional elements and modern amenities embraces a neutral color palette paired with tasteful color accents. Their concern for the environment is reflected in the use of recycled and natural materials. For many of them, they want their home to be a work of art and in particular they see their kitchen as art.


For busy young professionals with children, urban living is both convenient and cerebral. The remodel of this Edison Heights home provides the opportunity to incorporate an open floor plan with decorative and functional lighting, as well as the latest cooking technology, including multiple appliances to accommodate multiple cooks during meal preparation and clean up.


Parents can now work in the kitchen while helping kids with homework or observing play. The open kitchen and living space offers the ability to adjust the ambiance of the space with well-placed lighting for memorable entertaining and socializing with family and friends. Tall cabinetry provides easy access to storage that is well lit for supplies and small appliances. The refrigerator, freezer, steam oven, and warming drawer are integrated into the built-in wall of cabinetry.


A large island with a stainless steel top allows the cook to interact with guests or family members. One side of the island is designed for food preparation activities with illuminated specialty storage options while the other organizes dinnerware, serving pieces, and table linens for maximum visual accessibility. Rounded corner pieces soften the size of the island. This detail is repeated on the wet bar area and the breakfast nook.


Architectural details in the window and door trim, coffered ceiling, and fireplace preserve the historical heritage. Mirroring many of the details of the fireplace, the hood over the induction range incorporates pull-out storage for spices.


Both frameless European style cabinetry and traditional inset front frame construction are featured in the kitchen and living areas. The Park Avenue (Design Group 84) and Murray Hill (Design Group 42) door design is the same with only slight dimensional differences dictated by the cabinetry construction methods. Both feature a one-inch thick frame with a flat center panel. State-of-the-art LED lighting is integrated into both types of cabinetry and offers functionality and ambiance.


Glazed opaque finishes in Bright White and Silver Mist play off the soft neutral color scheme while the sandblasted white oak on the island, nook, tables, and mantle center panels has a look and texture of recycled wood. Large slab ceramic tops and backsplash provide easy maintenance. On the wet bar, a metal coated countertop uniquely contrasts the vintage white base cabinetry, while sliding doors with beveled glass inserts on the center wall cabinet reveal an antique mirror backsplash, lending a touch of vintage elegance. Reinforcing a sense of history are the brass and black iron light fixtures which feature state-of-the-art LED efficiency.

Know cabinets’ style before remodeling kitchen or bath

Published 4:36 pm, Thursday, March 2, 2017 on www.chron.com

Many homeowners are once again looking to remodel their kitchens and baths. Among the many decisions to be made is the one involving cabinets, and the choice for many is a manufactured cabinet.

Decisions usually start with the standard list: door style, soft-close hinges, full extension drawer glides, dovetailed drawer boxes, and the ever-expanding array of organizational features. Beyond that, the choice between one cabinet and the next can generate serious angst. Face the task in a systematic manner, and manageable bits of information become the basis for your decision.

Start at the construction of the cabinet box – framed versus frameless. The frameless cabinet, also recognized as European-style, offers full access to the interior of the box. Framed, or traditional cabinet construction, literally has a face frame on the front of the cabinet box. Keep in mind a frameless cabinet does not limit you to a contemporary door. That’s a common misunderstanding. Traditional-looking kitchens actually can have frameless-box construction behind those doors.

Related to box construction is door overlay. Think about how the door lays over the front of the cabinet. The full overlay door covers the front of the cabinet with narrow reveals around all edges. Doors with a traditional reveal present wider reveals all around. Inset doors are “set into” the front frame of a cabinet and are flush with the face frame.

Material used in box construction is another consideration. Plywood is often the choice for homeowners, but look to it as an upgrade. The other choice is MDF (medium density fiberboard) also known as engineered wood. The very best of engineered wood is structurally sound material and recommended for its dimensional stability, an especially important characteristic when you’re talking about sizing cabinets down to 1/16″ of an inch. A finished project in MDF looks just as good as the plywood project and you can’t differentiate between the two from the appearance.

The most noticeable parts of your cabinets, the exterior material and the finish vary from company to company. Each has different wood species, laminates, stains, paint colors, glazed finishes, distressing packages, and so on. Whatever the look you’re trying to achieve, you’ll find the appropriate material and finish.

A final, very important feature to consider is the warranty. Is the manufacturer going to be there to care for you in the future and how far into the future? Two years, five years or lifetime? Every cabinet product looks wonderful at the beginning. All the hinges and drawer glides operate as intended. But after a period of time, under normal conditions, will the manufacturer be there to remedy a failed door hinge or drawer glide?

Being aware of these cabinet basics arms you with added knowledge which should make the selection process easier for you. You now have parameters in which to compare one cabinet to another so you can make the most ideal choice for your project.
