Time for an Update & Re-Design for this Chandler Kitchen Remodel
Kitchen Remodeling & Updating
Category: Residential Kitchen $60,001 to $100,000
Project Cost: $65,342
Ever wonder what a $65k kitchen renovation looks like? Despite being remodeled less than 15 year ago, these Chandler homeowners had an outdated kitchen, un-utilized areas which could be used for extra storage space, and materials that matched the trends of yesterday. Once we began designing this Kitchen Remodel, it became clear this would be a dramatic transformation.
- The main goal for the Chandler Kitchen Remodeling project was simple: Make it brighter! The color tone of the existing kitchen cabinets, counters, backsplash, and flooring made the kitchen feel very dark.
- With a love to entertain with friends, and also the yearly responsibility of cooking Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for the entire family; the homeowners really needed a double oven.
- The existing kitchen cabinets were custom built by the homeowner 15 years ago, and he was very emotional about the fact of tearing them out.
- Better storage!
- The current kitchen didn’t match the design aesthetic of Mrs.; but rather, was remodeled 15 years ago to match what “everyone else was doing”.
- An old 48” Subzero refrigerator was recently replaced with a new 36” Thermador, which created open areas around the refrigerator cabinet wrap.
- Wasted space above upper cabinets.
- Construction between Thanksgiving & Christmas.
- Selection, and use, of timeless materials that never go out of style!
- Re-face, instead of replace, the kitchen cabinets. The cabinet boxes, built by the homeowner 15 years ago were built using plywood; and were in great shape. They held up very well over the years, and simply needed a style/color freshen-up with new cabinet doors & drawer fronts.
- Cabinet modifications would include: rebuilding the oven cabinet to allow for installation of a new double oven, the addition of a spice pull-out, new custom pull-out around the refrigerator, additional upper cabinets, and switching to deep drawers in some areas of the kitchen for better storage access.
- Just a few of the finishes include: *Mixture of solid tone, and stained tone, wood finishes on the cabinets. *Quartz countertops, *French White Oak wood flooring, *Touches of Champagne Gold finishes, *Black paint on walls and ceiling, *And More!
- Master an Organized and Efficient Schedule.
- Create a “WOW” when people come over!
What was once an outdated kitchen full of dark brown tones becomes a bright kitchen with the mix of White Shaker upper, and Ebony Rift Sawn White Oak base cabinets.
The Addition of upper glass cabinets added storage space, and decorative etched glass back-lit with LED lighting.
The before is an outdated combination of stained Alder doors and top drawers, with pull-out shelves in the base cabinets.
For better access to everything stored in the cabinets, the bottom doors are replaced with deep drawers. The doors & drawer fronts become Ebony stained Rift Sawn White Oak, finished off with Champagne Gold hardware.
An outdated tile backsplash was replaced with 4”x24” white subway tiles.
A metal trim piece, in Champagne Gold, creates a custom touch in the backsplash.
Open spaces existed around the 36” refrigerator.
Custom pull-out storage shelves were built to fill-in the gaps around the refrigerator, and provide much needed storage for everyday items.
The addition of new, 15” tall, upper cabinets installed above the existing upper cabinets. This takes up some un-used/wasted space on top of the upper cabinets, and also creates a decorative feature with the etched glass panels that are backlight with LED lighting.
The top trim molding is installed an inch below the ceiling height at the low point of the vaulted ceiling. The overall height off all upper cabinets, around the entire kitchen, is consistent.
The existing single oven, with microwave located above, was replaced with a Viking double oven + microwave combination unit supplied by the homeowner to allow for cooking big meals when Entertaining and Holiday Season.
A completely new light location was added above the sink area to help with task lighting at night.
The new light is a Champagne Gold finish, with black and white canopy.
