Magazine Worthy Kitchen in East Cobb!

It belongs in a magazine!

This kitchen collaboration Atlanta Curb Appeal (ACA) just wrapped up features new wide-open spaces, a gorgeous centerpiece island, and stunningly refinished maple hardwoods. This remodel was in the home of a former client; ACA previously redesigned the homeowner’s master bathroom.

 

The biggest challenge of remodeling this space was opening up the room. ACA had to remove some walls and take a fireplace out of the room to make it more spacious. We ended up installing double LVL (laminated veneer lumber) beams to provide support. When renovating your home, quality is paramount.

Next up, ACA tackled restoring the hardwood floors that were previously installed in the home. The wood was a maple, which can be a delicate wood to refinish. ACA fixed some previous installation issues, sanded, and refinished the floors. Everyone was surprised and pleased with how great they turned out!

The main event in this modern kitchen renovation is the waterfall island. This is a popular modern design feature. It keeps the island from having boxy edges, giving the space clean lines. It also provided additional durability. It hides boxy appliances: in this case, the microwave. Also, it showcases the beautiful countertop material more dramatically. The homeowner chose quartz, a popular choice for a waterfall island because it is manufactured. Quartz is extremely durable, has vast color and design options, and is easy to maintain. Cabinets in the island were painted grey to make it a focal point of the kitchen. We think it looks gorgeous!

With the additional corner bar, island, and traditional counter space, ACA was able to add about 40 square feet of additional counter space. Now, there is a space for everything. Overall, they opened up the kitchen and gave it a more modern look and a more functional set-up. The homeowner was extremely pleased and said these pictures do not do the kitchen justice!

Another project ACA completed while in the home, was taking down the old laundry room and adding a bathroom. To make up for it, ACA extended the area into the garage to create a new laundry room plus new pantry! Now there is a brand new space between the garage and the kitchen!

Before and After Modern Kitchen Makeover East Cobb Remodeling

Check out this fantastic modern kitchen renovation Atlanta Curb Appeal just wrapped up! This kitchen remodel in East Cobb was a result of great chemistry and lots of re-routing. The homeowners were pleased with the process of working with Avi and Andy and the team, expanding their cramped kitchen. They had one surprise: a big wall removal, which required a lot more work than anticipated

The homeowners originally heard about Atlanta Curb Appeal from their neighbors. After their first meeting, the family felt they had a great connection with ACA. After working with them through the bidding process, the homeowners were even more convinced. They were pleased with ACA’s ideas and quick response times.

The family wanted to open up the kitchen to give their family more space. To do that, they needed to remove one of the walls in the original kitchen. The wall appeared to be an easy removal, but once the demolition began, everyone was surprised. They discovered HVAC pipes that led from the basement to the second floor and the gas line feeding the attic furnace. ACA acted fast to get their HVAC and plumbing people to reroute all of this. Thankfully, this surprise only led to a two-day delay in the schedule.

BEFORE PICTURES:

One of the most important features of the new kitchen is the central island. It adds additional cabinet storage and a place to put the microwave. They also made the countertop overhang on two sides for more seating. The homeowners chose grey cabinets to contrast the white in the rest of the kitchen. The counters are now a gorgeous strong white quartz.

The client also added about 7 feet of additional cabinetry in the kitchen. This created so much extra storage! They also installed custom cedar shelves; the honey-colored wood contrasts beautifully with the gray walls and white counters. ACA finished these strong custom floating shelves with a clear stain that perfectly matches the newly installed flooring.

The homeowners said they “couldn’t be more pleased with the results” and “it was a pleasure” working with Atlanta Curb Appeal. And ACA was happy, too – the homeowner surprised the crew with donuts and coffee on the first day!

Gorgeous East Cobb Kitchen in Chimney Springs!

This beautiful, detailed renovation was completed in record time!

Our neighbors in East Cobb were looking to completely renovate the kitchen, master bathroom, flooring, and closet in their 1970’s home. Atlanta Curb Appeal did a major makeover that involved knocking out walls, moving an entire kitchen, and creating custom shelving. And they did it all in just six weeks!

ACA has done several renovations in the Chimney Springs neighborhood, so this family knew exactly whom they could trust for this major renovation, and they were very happy with the results.

The kitchen was very small and enclosed, with no room for an island. ACA took out three walls to open the space and relocate the kitchen; doing this they were able to create a much larger kitchen and island! Who couldn’t use a bigger kitchen for meal prep and entertainment? Beautiful subway tile and new modern lighting make this kitchen look straight from the pages of a magazine!

The sink in the island makes cooking on the stove a breeze!

Of course, moving the kitchen did come with challenges. Since the home was built on a slab, the master plumber used a video to locate the existing plumbing. That way they knew where to tie into for the new plumbing location. Using creative solutions at the start means less work on the back end.

The owners chose a newer line of cabinets – it is called York. They also chose to install top of the line quartzite countertops in a gorgeous style called Brazilian Taj Mahal.

The flooring is engineered hardwood. It is made up of a thin wood veneer on top. Underneath, there is a layer of high-density wood. Though the cost is comparable to traditional hardwood, engineered wood has become a very popular alternative because it is designed to reduce moisture issues that are common with traditional wood. It is also easier to install, which reduces labor costs.

ACA also gutted the entire bathroom and rebuilt the closet.

They added two windows to the bathroom, and installed custom shelving in the bathroom and closet in a farmhouse style. The shower now has a place to sit down if needed, and the frameless glass shower doors give a beautiful modern touch. The shower wall tile has an amazing pattern that is so unique you can’t take your eyes off of it!

Despite the beautiful finishes and rapid completion time, the project stayed within budget. The client could not believe it! They loved how it turned out!

Stunning Indian Hills Kitchen Makeover!

Stunning! What a transformation of this Indian Hills Kitchen!

Recently, Atlanta Curb Appeal partnered with an artistic homeowner to create this gorgeous modern kitchen remodel. The East Cobb couple first contacted ACA after their kitchen flooded. They decided to use the disaster as an opportunity to create their dream kitchen.

Since there was so much damage, they were going to have to rip out some of the original 1980’s-style kitchen flooring. The client took this cue to go ahead and remodel the kitchen to their heart’s desire, totally transforming the space. The homeowner is by trade an art professor and did most of the design drawings herself. ACA worked closely with her to give her the look she designed. For color inspiration, the client searched through home design magazines to find shades that resonated with her. ACA provided 3D plans with elevations to help visualize how their East Cobb dream kitchen would finally layout.

First up, ACA removed the old builder-grade cabinets and countertops and knocked out some walls to create a much more open, light-filled space. The challenge was to open up the space by removing the wall between the kitchen and the dining area. This required a new support beam, but it allowed for an enormous island and separate beverage bar. We also removed the old tile and concrete in the kitchen, but sadly discovered that the subfloor was not level. Because Atlanta Curb Appeal only does things the right way, we leveled the entire floor before laying down a new true hardwood. The wood was then sanded, stained, and finished with three coats of polyurethane to protect it from heavy kitchen use and potential water damage.

 

Another bonus of this new kitchen space is the double ovens. The client loves to cook and entertain, so having the bar stools in the kitchen allows the conversations to flow during parties!

One of the most unique features of this kitchen is the cabinets. They are flat panel cabinet doors, which are created using high-quality fiberboard and a wood veneer. This gives the cabinets new, sleek, modern lines. While many people choose white cabinetry, the combination of dark and light cabinets gave this space a more contemporary look. The clean lines of the cabinets and floors, combined with the textures of the artwork and furniture, made the kitchen visually pleasing. The best part is the increase in the overall space. By removing the wall and adding the long pantry, bar, and island, they expanded their storage space by an astonishing 25%!

The homeowners appreciated being able to collaborate and create together with ACA and love their dream kitchen. They expressed how appreciative they were that ACA stayed on budget and on schedule.
