By providing all of the necessary components for a complete project, and by giving our clients a single point of accountability, we eliminate the frustration many expect when considering a renovation project.

PureLine and ContourLine offer the ultimate in form and function

via The Miele Press Room:

At Miele, design is never an end in itself; it always exists in harmony with the utmost functionality. This is especially true with the introduction of the new Generation 6000 series which features two distinct design styles – PureLine and ContourLine. Under the principle, “Design for Life”, each design line offers an array of ovens, warming drawers and built-in coffee systems that flawlessly complement one another in form, function and materials. Combined with exclusive new technology and user interfaces, the design of the Generation 6000 series elevates the culinary experience with unprecedented convenience, performance and elegance.

“In order to meet the demands of the wide range of styles utilized in today’s kitchens, it requires two distinctly different design approaches,” stated Dirk Sappock, Director of Product Development at Miele. “Whether the design of the space calls for the appliances to be the ‘hero’ or to blend seamlessly into the cabinetry, Miele has a solution with either ContourLine or PureLine.”

This wonderful WSJ article by Anne Marie Chaker illustrates how important the kitchen island has become to home renovation projects in recent years. The island has evolved from additional counter space in the kitchen to the command center of the household.  It is where the family eats breakfast, cooks meals and does homework.  It can be outfitted with electronics and appliances that provide convenience and ease of use.  Examples of island features are instant hot dispensers, in counter steamers and switches for lighting and shade control.

At Classic Kitchen of Virginia, we have witnessed this trend and we have designed islands with these features. We look forward to continuing our research and design practice to remain on the forefront of island and kitchen design. Check out some featured island projects below from our portfolio:

Wolf has redesigned and launched their gas ranges. K+BB Online had this to say about Wolf’s redesigned products:

Available in March 2013, the line will feature dual-stacked burners, which ensure heat is consistently and precisely controlled through two tiers of flame ports. The burners range from 9,200 to 15,000 Btu on high and are equipped with simmer capabilities and automatic reignition.

Classic Kitchens of Virginia is certified Wolf dealer, so this new line is important to us because we often design kitchens and specify their products.  The gas range is a more cost effective option to the Wolf dual fuel range, which has a gas cooking surface and electric, self-cleaning, convection oven(s).

As the economy recovers, I am hearing about more cases of homeowners having a less than acceptable experience during their kitchen remodeling project. The project took longer than expected. It cost more than expected. Problems arose that they were not prepared for and so on.

One victim that I spoke with entered into a contract with a handyman who claimed that he could handle her kitchen remodel. She entered into a contract (with her now to be kitchen remodeler) with no plans, no design, and no selection of materials or guidance. The agreed upon contract price was based on made up figures. When selections were made, the price was altered with a change order.

Guess what? The project ended up costing more than she had originally expected. She wanted cherry custom cabinetry; the remodeler had budgeted for stock maple cabinetry. The homeowner wanted a dual fuel range; the remodeler had budgeted for an all electric range. She wanted a tile floor and he had not figured on that.

Several of these issues could have been avoided had these homeowners worked with a company that specializes in kitchen remodeling.

A company that specializes in kitchen remodeling will survey the client to understand their needs. After understanding the homeowner’s needs, the kitchen specialist will present the solution(s) to the homeowner. When there is enough information, the kitchen specialist will be in a position to present a price. The price will be based on a variety of variables, all pertaining to the client’s specific design.

This design and specification stage may consist of revisions, but the homeowner should not enter into a construction contract until the major components of the remodel have been addressed and priced.

The main point is this: A properly designed and managed kitchen should not have a price that is a moving target. These different specifications, selections and features should be made in the design phase. This makes the project more enjoyable. It also allows for the expeditious completion of a project without the surprise expenses.
