Stages of a new kitchen makeover

Hi Everyone.

I thought I would provide an informative blog showing the stages of a kitchen makeover.

The following set of pictures is an example of the progression from the initial dated kitchen to the final; finished product. The time frames were fairly accurate and representative of a typical kitchen renovation of this size. This timeline will vary depending on the scope of the renovation and its complexity.

Wow this is a dated kitchen.

Day35: During the approx 2 week waiting period for the quartz countertops to show up and get installed, all the doors, drawer fronts, finished end gables, handles, crown and most finishing touches were done.

 

Finished. Wow what a difference. All doors are a raised panel maple, coffee bean color with a licorice glaze. The custom wood range hood has a fan unit inside externally vented.
