Posted by Edesia Kitchen & Bath Studio on Fri, Oct 04, 2019 @ 11:14 AM

Like other homeowners in Melrose, a young couple fell in love with their 1938 house because it was chock full of charm from floor to ceiling. However, after living in the home for awhile the kitchen quickly lost any charm it may have had and quickly fell into the “we’ve got to update this!” category.

Before & After: Astonishing Two-Tone Kitchen Transformation

Posted by Dianne Aucello on Mon, Jun 24, 2019 @ 12:11 AM

The two-toned kitchen trend has been picking up steam in recent years, and we’re glad about that because 2 colors can be so versatile, ranging from fresh and airy to bold and dramatic. It’s especially adaptable when a homeowner wants the lightness and brightness of a white kitchen without creating a completely whitewashed space. We were excited to work on this two-tone design & renovation, based on white as the main color and a Juniper Berry painted island (a blue grey).

A New Kitchen Design Revives Historic Newton Home

Posted by Dianne Aucello on Tue, Mar 19, 2019 @ 10:00 AM

We recently finished a complete kitchen renovation in a charming 1780 historic colonial home in Newton. Architecturally, the strong bones of the home have beautifully stood the test of time, but the kitchen was extremely old and tired. The white cabinetry and laminate flooring had become worn out and dated, and countertop space was limited. Inadequate lighting made the space feel more dreary. Overall, the kitchen space was small and cramped, without much storage, which was a scenario that wasn’t serving the needs of the homeowners once they came back to the US to live.

Posted by Dianne Aucello on Thu, Nov 29, 2018 @ 04:14 PM

There’s no doubt that electrical outlets are a necessity in the kitchen, but their placement can also be problematic to say the least.

How To Budget For A Kitchen Renovation

Posted by Dianne Aucello on Wed, Nov 28, 2018 @ 07:21 AM

If you’ve been dreaming of a kitchen renovation, you’ve most likely been turning to Houzz or Pinterest for inspirational ideas. That’s a good place to start, and it’s also a wise idea to become aware of how much the items on your wish list are likely to cost so that you can adjust your choices based on your budget if necessary.

The average cost of a kitchen remodel in the greater Boston area is $25,423, but that price range typically requires that some aspect of the current kitchen is reused, like granite countertops, for example. For complete renovations, it’s not unusual for the cost to be in the $55,000 to $60,000 ballpark.
