What is the issue with your current kitchen?
New Jersey Kitchen Builder
My kitchen is dated.
If it’s been decades since the last time your kitchen was remodeled; you may be dealing with some very dated styles and features that don't help you today. Sometimes a kitchen needs a facelift to bring it out of the 80s and into the 21st century.
My kitchen has poor lighting
A dark, poorly-lit kitchen can become uncomfortable and depressing. With the absence of proper lighting, cooking in your kitchen becomes more of a chore and potentially dangerous-when cutting vegetables or meat.
I don't have enough cabinets
Cabinet space is precious. A lack of proper cabinet space can lead to clutter and disorganization. Maybe your cabinets are not making the best use of the potential space available. A properly configured storage plan can make a world of difference when organizing your kitchen.
My kitchen is too small
Is your kitchen just too small? Perhaps the issue is a kitchen that physically does not have enough space to function properly. Removing walls can make the kitchen feel more open, or perhaps an addition or both is the best solution.
My countertop is too small
Countertop space that is poorly planned or non-existent makes cooking a hassle. When cooking a meal, it is important to have the proper space to prepare everything. If you are lacking counter space, cooking will always be a hassle; perhaps this is the year to fix it!
My floor plan is disfunctional
A dysfunctional and inefficient kitchen floorplan becomes tiresome very quickly. An inefficient kitchen floor plan can tire you out as you prepare a meal and is not conducive when entertaining. Perhaps your appliances or storage is distant or inaccessible from your workspace; this adds time and frustration to your cooking routine.
My kitchen is a “bottleneck”
Closed off kitchens pose yet another issue as maneuvering through your house becomes difficult. Kitchens are often the center of activity during your daily routine as well as during parties or family events; if the room is a “bottleneck” for traffic it may become stuffy and cramped. Removing walls can really open up the kitchen to allow for free-flowing traffic goes a long way in making friends and family feel more comfortable.

Ambient Lighting: ambient lighting is the broadest form of light. It fills the room and is designed to set the mood for the room, depending on the brightness.
Task Lighting: task lighting is lighting which is directed at key workspaces. This could be added light over the sink, oven, cutting surfaces or any other area that needs increased lighting in your kitchen.

Kitchen floorplan configurations
Bryhn Design/Build will help you create a floor-plan for your kitchen that will meet your needs and desires. A good layout for your kitchen can mean the difference between a cramped kitchen to connect the kitchen to adjacent rooms which are perfect when entertaining.
Open floor plan kitchens
An open kitchen has a feeling of freedom and transparency. These are perfect for entertaining as the concept provides you with more space and can transform a stuffy claustrophobic kitchen into something open and inviting.
