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.

Deborah’s Bathroom

Deborah's Master Bathroom (2)

Deborah’s master bathroom received a makeover suited to her affinty for the lighter side of earth tones.  The sculpted white porcelain bowls for the matching sink basins provided a subtle contrast to the pink hues of the natural stone counter top.  We were able to procure a remnant which was a perfect fit and just large enough to include the back splashes but was reduced in cost due to its size.  The counter tops were finished with a simple ogee edge so as not to distract from their natural beauty.

The 12″x12″ tile floor was laid on a diagonal pattern with a tile trimmed to 4″x12″ and a 4″x12″ deco tile used to create a border placed on a standard lay along the outer edge.  The walls had 8″x12″ tile placed as a wainscoting with several tiles containing a medallion centered diagonally on those tiles.  The wall tiles continued into the shower and covered the shower seat.  Two inch square tiles were used in the shower floor to follow the contours of the sloped mortar bed beneath.

A porcelain coated cast iron, claw foot tub was chosen in white to match the sink basins.  Existing cabinetry remained in place and merely needed a fresh coat of paint.  Brushed nickel faucets were installed for sinks, tub, and shower alike.  A new toilet for the water closet and a fresh coat of paint completed this project, providing Quinta Contractors, LLC with yet another satisfied client.
