Fontana Kitchen Remodel

This was a fun project.  We got to give this kitchen a completely different look within a reasonable budget.  By not having to tear out all of the cabinets we, saved the homeowner the cost of replacement and hassle of being out of the kitchen for a few weeks.  After deciding to keep the cabinets, we got started by getting rid of the dated doors and replacing them with a shaker style.  The shaker style is simple, always in style and also easy to keep clean.  We then had to sand and prep the existing cabinet frames to be stained. The homeowners chose a very deep, rich espresso shade which we loved!  Going from a natural oak to rich espresso we were able to totally update the appearance of the cabinets.  We also added new stainless steel handles which was a nice accent as well.  This family loves to cook and be together in the kitchen so we took out the step up bar area by the sink and create a flush island that opens up the kitchen area and allows everyone to feel involved.  We removed the original Corian counter tops and replaced it with White Quartz slabs and a full back splash which really make this kitchen sleek and clean.  A 60/40 under mount sink was another upgrade from the original cast iron over mount that was originally installed.  We removed the overhead microwave and replaced it with a hood which was big perk of the remodel for the homeowner.  We moved the microwave to a more accessible location and added a wine fridge as well.  This family is so happy with the way their new kitchen turned out and so are we!
