Massive Makeover in East Cobb

Massive Makeover In East Cobb

New clients find Atlanta Curb Appeal in different ways, and we are honored to say a good number by referral and word of mouth. Recently, this East Cobb family had watched their friends and neighbors five houses down wrap up a remodeling project with Atlanta Curb Appeal. After seeing the final results, they decided it was time to go forward with us on their dream kitchen renovation.

At first, we did a lot of brainstorming with the client. The atmosphere was fun and light as we worked through the planning process. In the beginning stage, before the first hammer falls, there is typically a level of excitement as we explore all the possibilities. It’s like having a new house to play with if your contractor has real insight and vision.

This project was going to be a good-sized renovation, with many moving parts. Adding new rooms to a home creates extra work versus a one-room improvement. Together, we agreed on a timeline and budget and then got started.

Step one of renovations began with a huge demolition. Dismantling the kitchen, the powder room, and the ceilings upstairs. After the dust had settled, our framing crews came in. In addition to the simple room location changes, a few new areas were being created.

The original style of the kitchen was closed off and constrictive; on one side was a bathroom next to the living room. However, to make this space bigger, we had to expand. There was a quite an extensive framework of plumbing, HVAC vents, and electrical that we had to reroute to accomplish this. Next up was a new laundry room on the attic side space. Then a powder room was going where the former closet space was, near the back stairs and garage. Once we completed the framing, electrical and plumbing, we sliced the hardwood floors to patch all areas affected and sanded the whole main level to match.

To maintain the calm and serene energy of a modern gray kitchen, we installed new white shaker-style cabinets, a new island, and new pantry cabinets. Over the stove, the new stainless hood complimented the pale shade of the subway tile. Gorgeous new granite countertops were also added. They picked these out along with the granite backsplash in our showroom. Never underestimate the power of new lighting setups in a renovation. The new can lights and dimmers now create an amazing atmosphere.

 

As we were completing the kitchen, they decided they wanted a mini bar, too. Adding a few cabinets and matching granite top made this little addition perfect for entertaining. A new wine cooler finished the area with a custom fit into the new cabinets.

We are proud to say this is one of our most beautiful renovations in East Cobb. The transformation was astonishing, and the clients are thrilled with our ideas and the outcome. They were fantastic to work with throughout the project; They were so patient and fun to be with during the whole process.

Stunning Kitchen Renovation East Cobb

Superb Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel in East Cobb, Georgiaeastcobbkitchenremodelingkitchenrenovationseastcobb

When this East Cobb family called Atlanta Curb Appeal, they were looking for a kitchen and master bathroom redesign. The original kitchen was cramped, and it needed some expanding. Early on, it was decided that removal of the adjoining powder room and integration of the space would be the solution to creating an enlarged kitchen floor plan. However, this was no small undertaking, as the majority of the plumbing had to be re-routed as part of the process.

Step two of the kitchen remodel was a complete reconfiguration of the cabinets. Reusing some of the existing boxes saved part of the client’s budget. Atlanta Curb Appeal custom built new shaker-style doors for the cabinets and beautiful new fronts for all of the drawers. The new layout easily increased the client’s storage space by 50%.

One exciting part of the redesign was turning the old wet bar into a cabinet to hold their home beer keg. A beautiful custom island, hand built by Atlanta Curb Appeal, was the next step of the renovation. It is now the centerpiece of the kitchen, along with the new, stunning quartz countertops. Bigger windows and well-placed lighting now make the kitchen bright and contemporary.

The bathroom was up next for renovation due to its smaller size. A blank slate was needed, so the entire space had to be gutted to free up more room for the shower and toilet areas. Atlanta Curb Appeal then removed the old Jacuzzi tub and installed a new, gorgeous, freestanding one in its place (see picture below).

The client hand-selected the new, attractive bathroom porcelain flooring. It has the appearance of a hardwood but is significantly more durable. The shower hardware is also very modern. Its unique design fits perfectly with the room’s updated style.

This project was indeed a huge success! The client has already asked Atlanta Curb Appeal to return and refinish their screen porch. They also recommended them to their friends and neighbors, which resulted in projects that Atlanta Curb Appeal is working on now!
