The Subject Property
The owners of this house were ready for a change. Their kitchen and living room were both outdated with the color scheme as well as appliances and cabinetry. Prior to the renovation, you could find green cabinets in the kitchen, wallpaper from years ago, and lighting coming from only the ceiling fan. The customers were interested in keeping the same kitchen layout, but making it look brand new with new countertops, cabinets, and a new refrigerator..just to name a few.
This kitchen looks phenomenal. These dated green cabinets were replaced with a more up to date dark style from RSI Cabinets while the plain white countertops were replaced with a quartz from Daltile . Additionally, Regency replaced the lighting with brand new can lights in the ceiling throughout the kitchen and living room. The wallpaper was torn down and the walls were painted a light, neutral color with a matte arctic white backsplash behind the stove and sink. A stainless steel refrigerator was also installed to match the oven, microwave, and the rest of the kitchen.
In the living room, we updated the fireplace by demolishing the old brick and installing black mist quartz from Daltile. We also installed white shaker cabinets to match the fireplace and rest of the home.
Overall, this renovation was a huge success. Our customers were thrilled to see how their home was transformed and cannot wait to host their friends and family in their brand new kitchen.
