Homeowner wanted to make his kitchen larger so that there would finally be space to move around. Two non-load bearing walls were removed, gas line for stove was relocated, 13 recess lights were installed in the dining room and kitchen area, area by the door leading to the garage was made into a pantry, crown molding to match rest of house was installed, glue down engineered flooring was installed to match existing. New flooring was seamless with existing glue down engineered flooring. Tan Brown granite installed.
Kitchen space was rather limited as was dining room space but by opening a portion of the concrete wall we were able to join the rooms and make everything appear more spacious. The refrigerator was moved but range stayed in place due to location of exhaust fan. Since the refrigerator was moved to have a little extra counter space, now the side of the refrigerator would be exposed. Butchers block was installed. Homeowner had already thought that a tchotchke shelf would look nice. Due to our limited space to work with we could only alter the shelves so much and you can see the shelves that we constructed below. Heated floors were installed with slate tile. Which of course meant running a new circuit. Under cabinet lights and lights at the top of the cabinets were installed. Due to the thickness of some of the slate tile and the heating element beneath the tiles, the kitchen floor was higher than the dining room. Therefore we made a threshold that would bridge the difference in height with nothing protruding so nothing to stub your toe on!
In order to allow a little more light into the kitchen, we removed the bookcases/shelving system that was located on the other side of the kitchen wall and cut out an opening. It also allowed an area for guests to sit down while somebody is working in the kitchen. Refrigerator was relocated to opposite side of cabinets in regards to its previous location. All tile, cabinets and counters replaced. Solarius granite was installed. All new appliances.
Kitchen was not old but there was very limited working space. Therefore we converted the cabinets where the sink was located with a bar top into an island. We also added a few extra outlets. The same high end granite that was used as the countertop was also used as backsplash instead of tile.
Granite where sink is located was not installed correctly and was pieced together. Although the granite was 10 years old, we were able to find granite that matched 99%. Therefore we only had to replace the granite where sink was located instead of all of the granite in the kitchen. Homeowner now has under mounted sink, new back splash, fresh paint and 4 new recess lights.
In order to make the kitchen feel larger and have a little more counter space, a portion of a load bearing wall was removed. Both sides of the walls were supported as 2x10 headers were used to distribute the load. New countertop with bartop installed and stainless steel undermounted sink. Fluted casing with rosettes and crown molding installed. Cabinet painted on modified in order to accommodate wine bottles.
Homeowner was ready to sell their condo and wanted a kitchen on a budget. New cabinets and Silestone counter. Vinyl flooring removed and engineered flooring installed in kitchen, living room and dining room. All walls painted.
