Some kitchen remodeling projects provide a stark contrast between the before and after; this is just one of those examples. Martin and Katherine had a desire to completely remodel their galley kitchen in their newly purchased house. They recalled the fabulous kitchen provided by Quinta Contractors, LLC some 4 years prior in their previous home.
The existing kitchen had been furnished with builder’s grade cabinets, formica counter tops, linoleum flooring, and striped wall paper all of which was well dated. Having been a prior client of Quinta, they called out to Bryan (President of Quinta) for help.
After a day of design consultation and shopping for the new components, a new plan was developed. The new design included natural Alder wood cabinets produced in about 4 weeks time from a local cabinet manufacturer. The new 18″x18″ ceramic tile was in perfect harmony with the new granite counter tops (St. Cecelia granite) and darker toned cabinets.
Taller wall cabinets than original were used to avoid the lost area which catches dust above and to make the kitchen appear larger. A large crown and staggered upper cabinet depths truly work to revitalize the space. The new kitchen sink faucet has an oil rubbed bronze finish. Stainless steel appliances topped off the design for a flawless completion.
An overhead florescent light was remove in favor of adding four new recessed can lights. After the wall paper was removed and the drywall repaired, the walls were primed and painted. The linear glass and stone backslash makes a beautiful contrast to the Alder cabinets.
