This home was originally built in 1991….. and with the gold hardware, blonde oak cabinets, and old floors, it was looking dated and lacking modern finishes. After much planning, the crew went in to start the renovation process in the kitchen. The guys took out the cabinetry which the family decided to store so they could sell them at a later date, and the flooring was removed. The old fashioned sunshine light with tray ceiling was also removed and they closed in a doorway to allow for more cabinet space. The casing and trim were taken off the walls and the room was ready to be rebuilt.
The family took a trip to Kamloops to check out lights as they wanted to make a decision in person instead of online. United Floors was very helpful to help pick out a tile for the backsplash. New fabric was chosen for the new bench seat in the dining area. The electrician came in to remove all the old wiring and rough in new ones while the cabinets were out. The plumber needed to add a second sink into a new island location. The stove also changed location so a new exhaust vent was created for the new overhead fan above the stove. New floors were installed and the walls were repainted.
3Gen Cabinetry & Construction brought in the new Shale colour cabinetry which took a few days to install. When they were completed the templates for the new counters were taken and the granite was ordered! It was a rather large and heavy piece of granite as the island is 5x7! The island is a great place to entertain and prepare food and with the cabinetry opening on both sides it allows for a ton of storage. The family also decided to add matching shelving units in the dining room to go along with their new kitchen which is a beautiful touch!
The homeowners made some wonderful choices for their new kitchen! Below are some photos of the before and after of this home renovation.
