We first met with this couple to do a kitchen makeover. They wanted to keep the original cabinetry, so we stripped the melamine coating and spruced it up with fresh paint. We added a new island with a concrete top, but due to the weight we had to build a 2x4 wall around the new extra cabinetry we added into the island.
It gave them an area for extra seating and freed up space in the existing cabinets for a hidden recycle/trash area. We designed it with an added perk so the homeowners could push with their knees and pop it out for convenience.
We sanded down the concrete top of the island to reveal hidden stones and added some rustic distressing to make the cabinets pop. Thus, completing this modern makeover, making this family memories for almost a decade...
The last major upgrade we added was a custom, built on-site wine station. We put in the finishing touches starting with installing a Lapa lazuli tile waterfall from the backsplash to the counter. Our skilled craftsman was able to undermount the sink through the challenge of the tile meeting the edge.
Then about two years ago, this couple came back looking to give their kitchen a bit of a facelift. We took out the tiling and replaced it with a bright subway tile backsplash. We added granite counter tops for contrast, keeping this home in the couples individual style and modern era.
