The Fix and Flip

We were approached by our client to help him remodel the kitchen with the objective being a quick sale of the home when we were done. The other thing was obviously to keep the costs down. First thing done was the existing hardwood floors being honey needed a modern update as in Espresso staining. We then used the Society door style in Java and Alabaster finished from Bellmont 1600 series cabinets [button link=”www.bellmontcabinets.com” text=”dark”]Bellmont 1600[/button] to create a classic look that appeals to the masses and the pocket. We then used Absolute Cream granite at the main area of the kitchen to stay in the earth tones. The client purchased a butcher block top from Ikea for the island to help keep the cost down. The back splash was done in a simple white subway tile that again appeals to everyone. Hardware on the cabinets was gun metal black on the Alabaster cabinets and satin nickel on the Java. When accompanied with the stainless appliances, sink, etc we expect this house to sell quick.

This was a fun project for a fun family. This used to be their attic off the single bedroom at the top of the stairs. There was an existing bath if you could call it that. Not any more.

Duffy home: A Traditional Cherry Kitchen for A Modern Family

This space used to have a peninsula with the sink situated on the corner windows.
