Existing cabinets. New kitchen.
This project features a refreshed kitchen and additional updates to the main and upper living areas. The traditional kitchen’s blonde maple cabinet doors, drawers, crown molding and island cabinets were completely dismantled in preparation for their transformation offsite. Utilizing an environmentally prudent process of spray-shading and refinishing, excess waste caused from demolition was avoided, minimizing quality cabinetry materials ending up in the landfill. The refurbished kitchen cabinetry now features a stunning black bean maple finish without the need to replace the existing cabinetry. The island was partially refurbished and reconfigured with two additional cabinets, creating a more functional space with a same-level eating bar and a more contemporary configuration than the previous ‘builder-spec’ version. Included in the modernization is new kitchen crown moulding, quartz counters, tile backsplash, sink/faucet replacement and cabinet hardware. The balance of the renovation included replaced hand-scraped hardwood, a complete top to bottom home re-paint, refinished railings in a two-tone color, carpet replacement on the upper floors, a refinished mantel and a new custom built desk in the former dining area for their kids to use for homework. The rejuvenated areas of this home have created inspirational spaces for this family who loved the location of their home but wanted to upgrade their surroundings.
