Budget Kitchen Update

Peter & Crystal hired us to help them update their kitchen. They were on a tight budget, and were looking to give their kitchen a much needed face lift. We adjusted their wish list & design to keep costs low where we could, while still giving them a kitchen they love.

In a typical kitchen remodel, high-end, semi-custom to full-custom cabinetry can account for as much as 30%-40% of the total renovation budget. Simply redoing the doors & drawer fronts on this job saved thousands of dollars. We created a few custom cabinet pieces: a small one to fit between the dishwasher and relocated fridge, and a larger one with pull-out drawers to replace the cabinets where the peninsula once was. We kept their existing appliances and the general footprint of their kitchen by just opening up one wall. We didn’t need to relocate any plumbing or electric (with the exception of a small water line running to the fridge) which also saved a significant amount of money.

We painted the existing cabinets, installed new granite counters & tile flooring, and kept the backsplash clean & simple with subway tile. We removed the fluorescent lights & installed recessed lighting. We also saved a substantial amount of their budget by opting for a pre-made roll-away island, as opposed to a built-in custom island.

Peter & Crystal were such a pleasure to work with, and we love the end result!
