Gorgeous Modern East Cobb Kitchen Makeover

What do you do when your 40-year-old kitchen still has its original builder’s grade cabinets and wood paneled ceilings? You call Atlanta Curb Appeal! This East Cobb family was ready for a change. Kitchens are the heart of the home and having order and space can help the chaos feel manageable!

One of the biggest changes was the removal of the wall that closed off the kitchen from the main foyer. The wall was attached to a coat closet, and losing both would allow more visibility from the kitchen of the front door. And when you have 2 small children, observation is important.

In place of the previous kitchen cabinets, the family chose colonial white shaker cabinets and a navy tile backsplash. The contrast gives the effect of a much larger kitchen while adding light and depth to the room. These kitchen styles are on trend now, yet also simple enough to endure style changes down the road.

The family also wanted a much larger island than the house had originally, so ACA designed a greatly expanded one. The new island added additional cabinet space in the kitchen, as well as a spot that incorporates the microwave. It looks amazing under the new modern lighting piece.

New countertops were made of quartz. This is a wonderful choice for a family because they are tough to stain and they do not require special treatment. ACA also replaced the wood panels in the ceiling with drywall. Then, they re-worked the skylights by finishing the edges and adding new trim.

Flooring was also updated throughout the entire house. The family decided to go with LVP, or luxury vinyl planking, with gorgeous brown and gray tones. LVP is often more affordable than hardwoods and is a smart choice for kitchens because it is less likely to sustain water damage than hardwood. It is also good for kids because it is durable. The new LVP style choices are miles better than your mother’s linoleum.

The transformation is stunning, making the home more modern and functional for a family with small children. They are glad they took our advice to get rid of the coat closet. They were extremely happy with the end result!

Sensational! Chef Inspired Kitchen Remodel in East Cobb!

What do you do when your cabinets are builder grade, but your taste is modern and fresh? Time for a makeover! We recently wrapped up a beautiful kitchen in East Cobb. The transformation is spectacular!

Initially, the clients had found Atlanta Curb Appeal through Facebook, quite a while back. However, they wanted to be careful and get several bids. After weighing their options, Atlanta Curb Appeal emerged as the clear winner to rebuild their new chef-inspired kitchen.

 

Their reason for wanting a renovation was because the current kitchen felt dated. It had the original builder’s grade cabinets and a small island. Overall, the atmosphere was cramped, Atlanta Curb Appeal’s new design would have a similar layout but have a more open floor plan.

First up on the project was the demolition of one of the walls. This removal allowed for an increase in the pantry area. The new pantry would now have a more uniform appearance since all the drawers and doors matched and tied into the kitchen design instead of being behind a door (like most typical kitchens). Assuredly, the cabinets were nearly the first to go, since they were what the clients disliked the most.

After the cabinets were installed, new countertops were added. These new beautiful surfaces are all high-end quality quartz. The new colors made for a lighter experience in the room.

More great custom touches, like a water faucet, were added above the stove. It’s perfect when one wants to cook pasta! No need to walk across the kitchen anymore. Plus, new warmer lights were added to keep the food warm after cooking. A new hood above the stove caps off the range top. The custom hood was the last piece to put in since it took the longest to be delivered.

The floors were gloriously transformed too! Old kitchen floor tile was removed and matching true 3/4″ red oak Provincial-colored hardwood was installed. Sanding and finishing were done on all the main level floors. It looks fantastic.

Looking at this new kitchen, one may wonder how much new space was added. At least 150% extra storage was added when you take into consideration the larger island, new pantry, etc.

The clients are extremely happy with their new kitchen. They have already recommended Atlanta Curb Appeal to their friends and neighbors. In fact, Atlanta Curb Appeal will be starting their neighbor’s basement next week!

They loved working with Atlanta Curb Appeal and even gave the crew gifts and a very lovely and useful gift to Andy and Avi. Andy and Avi said it was almost sad to pick up the last check and say goodbye since a great connection was made with the both of them!
