Our kitchen project is starting to take its final form, as we install the cabinets and counters. Details are important which is why we spent a little extra for plywood box cabinets, and even went to the warehouse with the owner to pick out the exact granite counter top slab she wanted.
The trick with patching a hardwood floor and making it look like it wasn’t patched! How did we do this smarter? The trick…harvest from somewhere else if you can!
Recently, one of our customers decided to go with a mass production cabinet for their kitchen. They are good quality cabinets, solid finish and features, and a great value for the price. Yet, they don’t always come with everything. In this case, we were missing the hardware to support a farmer sink, but came up with a great way to support this potentially heavy structure without taking up a lot of room.
The layout was inefficient, the divides between rooms were not meant for the 21st century, and it was just time to rework it all. Our kitchen/bath project is taking a big step was the wall between the living and dining room comes down to unite the two spaces, and add more space for everything you need.
We often hear that people “just want a new bathroom” or “Just need a new deck” and want to take on this smaller project, because it is what they can afford right now. Breaking your renovations into smaller, manageable pieces is great, but to do it effectively, homeowners should really think about how it connects with potential future renovations or improvements for the whole home and property at large. Here are a few tips to consider before starting that small renovation.
As part of this first floor transformation, we did our best to consider the optimal layouts, what was existing, what we could work with, and what needed a little bit of change. The exterior fixes were step 1, now onto the interior, and first stop was the bathroom, with some unique changes and interesting discoveries.
