What do you when you have a dark and dated kitchen? You transform it!
This family in Roswell realized they were ready for an open and light-filled space to create and entertain. Their original floor plan of a separate kitchen and dining room was just too limiting. They called Atlanta Curb Appeal to see if they could have their dream of a beautiful, modern culinary oasis.
To get started, the client agreed to open up the space. To do this, ACA removed some load-bearing walls. We had to get creative to ensure that the weight would be carried in other ways. This included adding new footing and adding to the foundation.
The family saved up for this project and that preparation paid off. They were able to splurge on some top-quality materials that will keep this kitchen beautiful for years to come!
One of these high-quality items is the quartzite countertops. Quartzite is a growing favorite for several reasons. First, it is a naturally-occurring material, so it has the depth and beauty that are often associated with granite and marble, but it is much more durable. Unlike marble and granite, it does not scratch or etch, and it requires virtually no maintenance. A win-win for everyone.
Solid Wood Flooring
The other high-quality material ACA used in this renovation was new red oak flooring. This gorgeous natural wood gives the kitchen a modern, classy feel and will be durable through time. ACA stained the floors with Provincial by Minwax, and we applied a durable shellac polyurethane to preserve the floor.
Prior to the renovation, they did not have an island, but they desperately wanted one. They had narrow cabinets and needed end appliances space after we removed the walls. By adding an island and installing new wider cabinets, Atlanta Curb Appeal was able to increase cabinet space by 30%!
The Dry Bar
They did not have the dry bar before and had always wanted one to display glasses. Plus, having beverages on tap cold and ready to enjoy without crowding the kitchen fridge was a total bonus.
ACA thrives on referrals. This Roswell family was referred to ACA by a friend who had a great kitchen experience, too. And now, this family was so happy with their experience with ACA that they referred us to one of their friends. Are you ready for your home upgrade?
