Kitchen Island Makeover

New Island Makeover

Becky and Michael called from Desoto County looking to upgrade the island high-top bar in their Memphis Area home.  The existing outer wall was covered with sheet-rock.  Metal corbels were being used to hold the edge of the counter top and the gray from the living room wall was carried over to the bar wall color.

Quinta Contractors, LLC was able to transform the look of the island in keeping with the home’s existing decor.  Bead board was installed in between newly constructed wood columns.  Trim applied to the columns added a little more detail to the project.

Island Bar During Remodel

Trim for the base and cap of the remodeled wall matched the existing window and door trim in the home’s interior.  Once primed the new wood was painted with a semi-gloss paint matching the trim color of the rest of the kitchen and living room.  Quinta Contractors provided Becky and Michael with a remodel they could be proud of and display to their friends and family.

Custom Bookcases and Fireplace Surround

Yes, we do custom carpentry!  The pictures displays some work done in Brandon’s own personal home.  This project includes open shelving and lower doors with one set of upper doors.  The shelving is completely adjustable to accommodate changing decor.

Obviously (from the picture above), displaying photos is paramount to Brandon and his family.  The 12″ deep upper shelving provides ample space for pictures and knick knacks alike.  Keeping games and puzzles organized and most importantly out of sight is also important.  The kids know right where to find their favorite things but the parents are quick to point out that, “everything has its place”.  The half overlay, raised panel door style accents the other trim in the room and surrounding the fireplace and mantel.

The lower left and right portions of this family center are 18″ deep and the center unit projects 22″ into the room.  The white enamel paint provides a very durable finish.  Bead board panels line the rear of the open shelves for a dramatic and classy touch.

Brandon's Fireplace

The fireplace surround boasts of upper and lower square columns rising from floor to ceiling.  The simulated inset panels give a majestic feel to this center piece.  A quick run of base and cap installed above the mantel yields a stunning look contrasted by the mocha colored wall paint applied to the inside remaining drywall.  Let Quinta Contractors, LLC design and fabricate some custom bookcases for you.
