Before & After: Kitchen Remodel Delaware County

Some of the warmest and most lasting memories of home are made in kitchens and dining rooms. The whole family comes together in these rooms daily to cook, enjoy meals, and share stories. The team at Lisa Quale Interiors completed a beautiful kitchen remodel for a Delaware County couple, transforming their kitchen and dining room into a warm and appealing space for their family.


The first step in our kitchen design plan was to take down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room, which made the rooms feel more open and airy. The client’s 1950s kitchen had dark wood, a soffit, and dated wall coverings, so we looked for ways to brighten up the kitchen and take advantage of its soft natural light.

We visited the granite yard with our client and she was excited to find beautiful white and gray quartzite that she loved for her countertops. Quartzite is a natural stone that is quickly becoming more popular for kitchen remodels–it looks like marble but is less delicate and porous, which makes it easier to care for. The new quartzite kitchen island creates a place for the kids to do their homework and enjoy family time.

Lighting under the cabinets and tumbled subway tile on the white backsplash give the room a softer look. We installed polished chrome hardware throughout. To add warmth to the white and chrome color scheme, we found rustic wooden stools and stained the floors to match the existing wood floors in the dining room.


In the dining room, we installed an acrylic and chrome chandelier for a glamorous and contemporary feel, and added drapery rods with matching acrylic finials. The table and chairs from Restoration Hardware are suitable for both casual and more formal entertaining, and pinch pleat draperies highlight the large window and match the relaxed roman shade in the kitchen. The indoor-outdoor rug is perfect for dining areas with kids and pets, with a pattern that is trendy but affordable to replace as styles change.

The completed dining room and kitchen design is comfortable and inviting, while also being an elegant space to entertain guests. Our clients love how the rooms flow together to create a place for their family to relax and bond.

How This West Chester Interior Design Firm Manages Remodels From Start to Finish

West Chester Interior Design

Remodeling can be an exciting time for many homeowners; but if not properly managed, a remodeling project can lead to a lot of frustration and stress. At Lisa Quale Interiors, a West Chester Interior Design firm, we coordinate with contractors, develop a detailed design plan and keep an open line of communication so our clients not only enjoy the finished space, they actually enjoy the process.

It’s All in the Details

When it comes to creating a space that suits your personal style, there are countless details to manage. From millwork to lighting design and everything in between, it’s not surprising that breakdowns in communication are common. At Lisa Quale Interiors, we provide design development, construction drawings and project coordination through our Construction Consulting service. Creating a cohesive plan with detailed drawings to share with your builder ensures your entire team is on the same page from the start.

Once the renovation begins, we work with your contractors throughout the process to ensure that every detail, no matter how small, is considered. For example, simply selecting Carrara marble to be used throughout your newly renovated bathroom isn’t clear enough direction. Because tiles and slabs are quarried from different parts of the mountain, we check the natural variations to make sure the stones you receive work together, and you get the high-quality look you’d hoped for. When working with Lisa Quale interiors, you can rely on our expertise to guide you through these kinds of decisions. Our commitment to detailed planning not only makes communicating easier, it can prevent costly mistakes from happening.

When Things Don’t Go As Planned

Invariably, setbacks do happen. When things don’t go as planned during a remodel, it can cause tension and stress in your household. At Lisa Quale Interiors, we take the stress out of the remodel by taking the problem out of your hands. Allow us to work directly with your contractor to resolve any issues that arise so that you can simply look forward to the finished space rather than sweating the small stuff.
