Stunning! Modern Kitchen Remodel That Will Blow Your Mind!!
This month we discuss a project with Avi Moyal, owner of Atlanta Curb Appeal, a total kitchen remodel recently completed in East Cobb.
What made the client decide to get the kitchen renovated?
The couple had recently purchased a home. Before they even moved in they knew that they were going to have to make some major changes. The house was very traditional and had not been updated since the 1980’s. The client’s personal style was very distinctive, very modern.
After talking with them we realized their vision was leaning towards a more open floor plan to achieve an ultra modern feel. It would need clean lines with light colors in the background. Doing this would allow the contemporary features to stand out. The brightening would also showcase the client’s personal collection of artifacts.
What was the process like? Was it difficult since it was so dramatic?
Yes! The demolition phase was long and messy. This was followed by the reconstruction stage, which included adding support beams. Since there was so much new fabrication, we had to add new electrical and HVAC ductwork. Even the plumbing was changed out and re-routed. This is typical when you move walls.
How does the kitchen flow differently now?
It is so smooth now because the dining and kitchen walls were actually knocked out completely. The foyer hallway passageway was then widened. Plus the openings from the kitchen area to the living area and back room were changed too. All the railing in the house was replaced too. Gorgeous new hardwoods were also installed. The last part of the puzzle was all new paint.
What are the new features that impress guests or neighbors when they see it?
In the kitchen it is the new custom made cabinets that were cut by a CNC machine and hand-made by a European cabinetmaker. The all new appliances (Viking, etc) and gorgeous granite that was leather finished is a total jaw-dropper.
Another favorite is the renovated fireplace; it was a completely made over with true marble, tile to floor and a new custom mantle.
How long did all of this take?
The whole project from start to finish was two months with intensive daily work from a few crews in parallel.
What should clients expect when they tackle such a huge kitchen remodel?
Plumbing and electrical changes can be a challenge especially when you move walls and the location of the appliances.
How do the clients feel with their new kitchen?
The clients are super happy with the end results! Especially since it was all done so quickly, on budget and with such a fine high quality finish.
