4 Best Step Kitchen & Bath Remodeling You Must Know

#1 Kitchen and Bath Cabinets

New Kitchen Cabinetry

This space is really beginning to seem like a Kitchen or Bathroom Remodeling! To begin with, tile is placed in the place where the cabinets and island will be set up. The design has a bank of lower cabinets without uppers across the wall below the new window. Instead of upper cabinets on this wall, we will install modern walnut shelving that is open.

Some of the Kitchen floor tiles have been set before we start installing the cabinets.

Custom Color Cabinets

The colors for the cabinetry were selected in the design phase and applied to the prepped cabinets following installation. The lower cabinets have been enameled gray, along with the farmhouse sink installed. The tall and upper cupboards are painted white. The lower walnut and cabinets Kitchen island is ready for countertops.

The Kitchen gets gray lower cabinets, white pantry and upper cabinets, and a walnut Kitchen island.

Open Floating Shelves

Custom constructed open walnut shelves are set up in two corners of the Kitchen over the lower cabinetry adding a modern accent into the new space. This in-progress Kitchen is beginning to reflect our customers’ style aesthetic, and their desire to unite casual European comfort and modern minimalism.

Master Bath Vanity

From the Master Bath, we have installed the dressing table cupboard and prepped for color application. The vanity cabinet is enameled white, and the chrome spout base installed. The following steps for the vanity are countertop and undermount sink setup. Once all the components of the vanity are set up, we will hang and frame the extra large vanity mirror.

#2 Countertops

Now that the cabinetry is in we are ready to install countertops!

In the Kitchen, we are adding granite countertops that have the appearance of weathered concrete. Quartz is a great countertop material since it’s low maintenance and it is resistant to scratches, stains, and warmth. It also provides a lot of design options, since it comes in several colors, patterns, and finishes. These matte grey Kitchen countertops produce the contemporary minimal layout aesthetic our customers wanted and compliment the new grey and white cabinetry. The lower cabinets and the island will both get the same countertop. The convenient new rear entry just off the Kitchen has been utilized to attract the slabs to the house for installation. This is starting to look like a Kitchen today!

In the Master Bath, we selected a light gray quartz remnant to your vanity countertop. If you’re flexible on the finish and have a bigger area to cover, with a remanent can save yourself a bit of money in a job. A white undermount sink was installed together with the countertop and is now prepared for pipes and faucet.

#3 Tile

We are installing tile at the Kitchen and Bathrooms.

We’re tiling the Kitchen flooring, Master Bath floor and shower, and the walls and flooring in the 2nd Toilet.

Installing The Kitchen Floor

We’re installing the cosmetic porcelain tile floor in the Kitchen. Our clients love this tile’s pattern because it is reminiscent of old Dutch kitchens. Porcelain tiles, such as these, have become increasingly popular because of the many designs, designs, and colors available. This tile is also a shallow maintenance option and is great for high traffic locations.

Master Bath Tile

From the Master Bath traditional white and gray basketweave mosaic tile was chosen for the floor. This classic tile layout compliments the first character of this Tudor style home while integrating cohesively with the other more contemporary design elements of the space. The basketweave tile is used for the floor throughout the master bath, extending from the vanity area into the shower.

Antique white subway tile has been used from the floor to ceiling for the shower walls in the Master Bath because it’s classic, clean, and a cost saver in the budget. Shelves will be cut from the same gray quartz used for your vanity countertop and installed in the shower walls.

Tile From The 2nd Bath

The Bathroom remodels on the next floor has been created using the first period and style of the house in mind. A custom tiled entry panel was created from the bathtub surround for potential access to pipes. The floor tile is a conventional black and white hexagon flower pattern mosaic that looks as though it might have been original to the home.

#4 Finished Remodel

Take a look Whatsoever before and after pictures.

A Brand New Kitchen

The target for this project was to gut and home remodel cost the Kitchen completely; Updating finishes, improving layout, and correcting structural difficulties to bring it up to code.

The newly remodeled Kitchen now reflects our clients’ simple European style, while complimenting the first finishes in the house. The kitchen features gray cabinets, farmhouse sink, open walnut cabinets, and custom walnut kitchen island. The patterned cement tile flooring adds charm and warmth into some of the more minimal modern finishes in the dream kitchen.

Adding A New Rear Entrance and Mud Area

We opened the wall from the Kitchen design to the adjacent unused area, and a new patio door to create a new rear entrance with a sand area. Opening the wall allows in more light, and makes the Kitchen remodeled seem larger. The patterned cement tile floor extends from the Toilet into the new mud region, which also creates a more spacious cohesive feeling between both spaces. Adding this back entry allows our clients to easily get their Kitchen from the backyard when they are eating or entertaining outdoors.

Developing a Master Suite

Our customers’ authentic Bedroom was small and did not possess a Master Bath. A little Bath could be accessed by walking through an unused sunporch from the front part of the Bedroom. The goal for this part of the remodel project was to make a larger Master Suite by mixing a small bedroom with the sunporch and remodeling the Master Bath.

The old bathroom was small and dated. The only way to get it was through the prior sunporch. The goal for this bathroom was to make a bigger Master Bath with contemporary finishes which open directly to the Master Bedroom. We began the bedroom to the former sunporch creating an open Master suite with direct access to this newest Master Bath.

A huge mirror with a custom framework was installed over the vanity to create the feeling of expanded space. Cabinetry and a countertop have been added to an open chrome console sink to create a dressing table. The finished Master Bath is intended to balance modern design with the simple utilitarianism of the early 20th century.

A Remodeled 2nd Bath

The goal for upgrading the second bathroom was supposed to find a balance between contemporary materials and the original character of the house. Our customers did adore the original vintage sink in this Toilet, so we’re happy to integrate it into the new layout.

The size of the new 2nd floor Bath was decreased slightly, giving space to enlarge the Master Bathroom next door. It’s still large enough for floor-to-ceiling linen storage and a five-foot soaking bathtub. The walls and tub surround are hot blue subway tile, with black wainscot tile accent, and also the flooring tile is a traditional white and black mosaic flower pattern. We kept some initial charm with all the classic sink while adding modern performance like a double flush, self-scrubbing, high-velocity low flow flush toilet. The new finishes and fixtures give this Bathroom a vintage, contemporary sense that compliments the first character of the home.
