Impressive East Cobb Kitchen Makeover

The owners of this home are return customers who came back to Atlanta Curb Appeal for their dream kitchen. In just six weeks, they were left with a more open and workable space, with a beautiful quartz island and much more storage.

ACA had the opportunity to upgrade this family’s master bathroom in the past, so when they decided that their 1980’s kitchen needed some major shifts to give it an open, modern feel, they contacted ACA again for this transformation.

This family of four enjoys cooking at home, and they wanted more space to cook, entertain, and spend time together. And they definitely wanted new cabinets. The finished product gave them about 50% more space to work in. It also provides much more storage, especially under the island.

For this family, the island is the center of entertainment when people come over, so they wanted to go big. The family selected a beautiful slab of quartz. Quartz is ideal for an island because it does not require any of the special treatment granite needs, it is heat resistant, and, of course, it is always beautiful. The new flooring accents the modern look, replacing the tile with a gorgeous oak hardwood.

To accomplish such an open feel and add a double oven, the owners and ACA decided to swap the location of the refrigerator and oven. That meant that they had to adjust the electrical wiring, plumbing, and HVAC hookups throughout the room. They also widened the doorway between the kitchen and the dining room and living space.

Even with those major adjustments, ACA was able to complete the project in six weeks – and stay within the family’s budget. The family said they are blown away by the timing, the final product, and that it was completed at no additional cost! 

The client shared with us in a text, “Wow, what a difference 6 weeks makes!! Unbelievable transformation of the downstairs. You guys are amazing!!!”

How did the client find you?

This latest kitchen remodel by Atlanta Curb Appeal is a return client for us. Last year we converted their porch into a screened sun room. They were very pleased with our work and us.

Why did they choose to have their kitchen remodeled?

The client had a small removable island in the kitchen but needed a larger one. They also wanted to shift a few things around. The oven was too far from the prep and sink area and they wanted it to be closer and actually inside the island. We came out to the house again and discussed their needs and functionality of the island. First they wanted to be assured that they had enough space for everything. The client wanted to be confident that this new island and surrounding space would have a natural flow. We outlined the area that it would require and marked it with blue painters tape on the floor. This allowed them to get used to the size of an increased island in the day-to-day use of the kitchen and highlight any potential issues.

How long did the new custom island take?

A few days after marking the floors Atlanta Curb Appeal custom-built and then stained the new kitchen island.  The granite guys came to measure all the countertops plus the island for the new granite. I have a place in Kennesaw that we like to get our granite from for the kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects. I sent the client over to their shop to pick out the slab they liked.

Did you have any challenges?

Moving the range was a big challenge. We had to move a gas line, a 220v outlet and a big fan duct under the floor. Luckily, they have a half finished basement so we were able to access everything from below. We also built a new custom kitchen office desk with one drawer where the range used to be. This closed the gap that was left behind. Kitchen offices are becoming a more popular request.

Did they love the work?

The client is SUPER HAPPY! They love the new kitchen look and the new island space! In fact, after we finished this East Cobb kitchen-remodeling project they asked if we could go ahead and finish part of their basement, which we just completed last week. I can’t wait to share pictures from that next month or on Facebook.
