The Challenge: Outdated and Inefficient Design Across Multiple Spaces
Cabinets and Wine Rack
In this multi-room project, the homeowners were struggling with cabinetry colors and styles that didn’t work with their design preferences as well as inefficient uses of space. This included:
- A rarely-used desk space with cluttered, open shelves;
- Dark cabinets in the kitchen with unused space from the tops to the ceiling;
- Bathrooms with brightly painted cabinets;
- A living room wine rack that didn’t meet the homeowners’ aesthetic standards.
The Goal: Create a Cohesive, Modern Look with Improved Functionality
We sat down with the homeowners to create a plan that would increase efficient storage space in the kitchen and update the bathrooms, laundry, and living room spaces. Our goal was to bring cohesion and consistency across multiple spaces so that there would be a whole-home aesthetic that suited their style while adding beauty and value to the home.
Our Cabinet Refacing and Custom Modification Process
Across each room, including three bathrooms, the kitchen, desk space, living room, and laundry room, we did a complete cabinet refacing. In this process, we removed all the cabinet doors, drawer fronts, molding, and hardware. At our local workshop, our team began crafting new doors, drawer fronts, molding, and quarter inch natural wood panels that would be installed over the existing cabinet boxes and frames.
We also constructed topper cabinets for the kitchen area to extend them to the ceiling creating an elegant balanced look. Decorative panels on the sides of kitchen cabinets and a custom wine rack for the living room cabinetry were also hand crafted. Each piece was primed, painted, and finished by hand over multiple layers to ensure a crisp, beautiful appearance.
Once the materials were ready, our team began installing the new materials. This includes installing the extensions over the kitchen, desk cabinets, and living room cabinet, and laying the wood panels over the entire frame to ensure a beautiful, seamless finish. Wooden overlays were also installed over the existing cabinets, and once the frames were enclosed, we could install the new drawer fronts, molding, and cabinet doors with soft-close, hidden hinges.
