Kitchen of the Month Winner for New Cabinetry for October
There is nothing quite like the character you get from an older home, however when you go to remodel parts of the home to fit your style, it can be a challenge. Floors and walls might not be level, electric outlets can be wired differently or in places you don’t want them, plumbing might not match what you want. That’s why we knew when homeowners of this old home in Garrett, IN contacted us, we’d have to be sure to carefully measure, design and manage the project to stay within a budget. With unlevel floors and walls and unusable old kitchen cabinets, we designed a new kitchen that fit the homeowners’ style and budget. As in most older homes, the kitchen was a relatively small space, and we wanted to maximize the space and functionality to meet the needs of the homeowners. We made sure to work with the homeowners to pick styles and materials that were budget-friendly, but still quality materials.
After removing the old kitchen, we got to work with adding North Point Catalina White cabinets. We used EZ-Level levelers on the base cabinets to make sure that the cabinets were not only level when we set them, but would also continue to remain level as the house settled. To create more storage and functionality, we installed taller cabinets, used a lazy susan in the angled corner cabinet, and replaced the hood with an above the range microwave to free up counter space. We added a large pantry cabinet and a double trash pull-out for extra storage and an efficient layout. We used a Wilson Art Stormy Night laminate countertop to stick with the transitional style and stay within the client’s’ budget. A single bowl top-mount composite sink and white ceramic tile with a dove gray grout was installed for the finishing touches. This old home now has a fresh new kitchen that is ready for the homeowners to enjoy!
