Philadelphia County is one of 67 counties in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, with the city of Philadelphia encompassing its entire boundary. Philadelphia, known to the locals as Philly, was named by William Penn and translates from the Greek to “The City of Brotherly Love”. Philadelphia is the cornerstone of America serving as the nations’ capital from 1790-1800 while the White House and Congress were under construction. It was the first capital of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania before first moving to Lancaster and then Harrisburg. William Penn designed the layout of Philadelphia around a grid pattern. Anchoring the grid were 5 squares – known today as Franklin, Washington, Rittenhouse, Logan and Centre. Rich in tradition, Philadelphia County was settled by many Europeans, especially the Irish, Italians and Germans. Neighborhoods were built around these settlers, many of which still stand today.
The architecture in Philadelphia County is rich in tradition. Many of the homes are of the Georgian, Federal or Greek Revival periods. The city introduced the row home to the US in the early 19th century. Many neighborhoods have city blocks of row homes. Today, a mixture of traditional and more modern-styled row homes still exists as well as Victorian homes in the neighborhoods in the Northern sections. Philadelphia is a diverse cultural city. Its history is rich in music, art and athletics. It has more public art than any other American city including murals. Philadelphia has many musical icons from rock and roll to pop to hip-hop. There are 67 national landmarks throughout the city, the third most of any city in the country.
A city with professional sports teams in all major categories, it appeared as though when the gentleman’s agreement to allow new high-rise buildings to tower above William Penn’s hat atop city hall was broken in 1987, the drought of championships ensued. It wasn’t until 2008 when a worker put a statue of Billy Penn on the top floor of the Comcast Tower that broke the jinx. The Phillies won the World Series that year and in 2018 with the new Comcast Technology Center under construction, a worker did the same thing and the Eagles won their first championship in over five decades.
Philadelphia is a city rich in history of firsts – library, zoo, hospital, medical school, stock exchange, business school and department store to name a few. When homeowners begin to consider a kitchen remodeling project in Philadelphia County, they often choose Teknika Kitchens and Baths.

Kitchen Renovation that Fits your Lifestyle
Philadelphia kitchen remodeling projects are unique.
Although you and your neighbor’s homes may be identical, your lifestyle and needs are completely different. You may like that your kitchen has boundaries and set apart from the rest of the space, but your neighbor may like the idea of a more open floor plan with a communal space. In the kitchen, your family may be active with after school activities and require a space to tackle homework during dinner preparation, while your neighbor may not have children, but loves to cook and host dinner parties. Teknika Kitchens and Baths will create a space unique to your needs and the needs of your family. We ask many questions during our first meeting. With this information, we can create a very specialized and unique plan for your family and yours alone.
Our furry friends are also an integral part of our families. When a major home improvement project is being undertaken, it’s important to take their daily lives into consideration when planning and executing the remodeling project. As pet owners and furry parents, we take into consideration that this major disruption affects our pets as much as, if not more than, it does the family. Knowing your pets have a place to relax and be stress-free during our time at your home is key to our overall planning process. All of our contractors are pet-friendly, often-times letting the dog out into the yard while they are working while also keeping an eye on the kitty so it doesn’t sneak out while materials are being unloaded. Teknika Kitchens and Baths cares for your home, and also your family – all of them.
