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!

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.

We clicked right away and we started the work as soon as they purchased the house. This Atlanta Country Club whole home renovation took about 4 weeks. The client is overjoyed and pleased with the end results.

How did they decide on the colors for the kitchen and living room? 

The owner choose the colors themselves with a little help from us. We pained the Kitchen Walls, Sherwin Williams “Agreeable Gray” and the Cabinets a beautiful combination of white and gray, including Sherwin Williams, “Simple White”.
