This job was one that touched our hearts. John and Robin were the sweetest couple who were debating if they should make their home more functional or move into senior living.
They chose to renovate! And we’re so happy they did!
They had clearly been dreaming about the space for quite some time as their features and wish list were detailed and thought through. Wellborn Cabinetry delivered on every account. Charging stations to the left side of the fridge were incorporated for the grandchildren to charge iPads and Robin’s collection of antique blue glass jars set the tone for the backsplash and counter top selections.
We used the Premier Series in the kitchen opting for the Saybrook MDF door to prevent joint separation over time on their painted finish. Cambria Pendell Hill Countertops tied into Robin’s collection and were complimented by Traditional Soapstone on the island. Wellborn allowed us to custom design their island to be more of a furniture piece than traditional cabinetry.
Laundry Room Features
This room transformation was one for the books as it took the space to a much more functional level, even engineering the ability to disassemble the bench so appliances could be serviced in the future. The kitchen colors, Dove Gray & Divinity, were tied into this space as well. A ship-lap wall acted as a focal point and provided a place for hat and coat storage. The same Traditional Soapstone that was used on the kitchen island was then incorporated into a custom soapstone sink for the laundry room.
One Stop Shop
Removing the soffits was an involved process as it required re-locating the plumbing and re dry-walling the ceiling. However it opened up the space dramatically allowing for 39″ upper cabinets and new lighting throughout the first floor. The old tile was uneven and dated. New patterned tile carried through the kitchen, family, laundry room, and bathroom for a cohesive design. From flooring, to cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, plumbing, electrical, and carpentry installation this transformation was one for the books. Hope this is a space John and Robin will continue to enjoy with their beautiful family!
