Kitchen Remodel

Our crew remodeled this kitchen!

6 Things That Made This Kitchen Renovation Amazing

Our crews recently completed a beautiful kitchen remodel that completely changed the entire feel of the main level! Just to help you visualize the change, let’s start off with a before and after picture!

Before of Kitchen

And Here’s the After!

Now let’s dive into the details of the 6 things we thought made this kitchen amazing!

#1 – The White Cabinets from IKEA

These cabinets came from IKEA and were assembled on site by our crew. The cabinets definitely aid in making this kitchen feel bright and cheerful!

#2 – The Farm/Apron Sink

The white farm sink is a great addition to this kitchen, both aesthetically and for functionality.

#3 – The Custom Lighting!

We went to town on the lighting in this kitchen with two custom wood light fixtures (hanging over island and sink), under cabinet lighting, and recessed lighting in the beams over kitchen. The live edge wood light fixtures were made by our crews. Similar fixtures will soon be available for sale online as our crews plan on making more! The live edge pieces came from RRAW Rough Cut Lumber in Spencer.

#4 – Large Island with Cook Top & Sink

This island is the center of the kitchen and it doesn’t disappoint! There is storage on all four corners, a prep sink, a cook top, and bar seating on the end. What more could you want from an island?

 

#5 – The Tile Back Splash & Counter Top

We love the contrast of colors between the white tile back splash and gray counter top!

#6 – Open Shelving

And last but not least, we really like the touch of flavor these open shelves add to the kitchen! So what are you waiting for? Let’s turn your kitchen into a place you can’t stay away from!

5 Of Our Favorites From This Kitchen Remodel

We recently finished up a kitchen remodel in Bloomington that completely changed the look of the space. This kitchen got new flooring, cabinetry, countertops, lighting, and of course paint! Here are five of our favorite things from this kitchen remodel!

 

#1 The Copper Apron Sink. We thought this sink added a nice, subtle flare to this kitchen.

#2 The Tile Backsplash. We really liked the way the back splash contrasted and complimented the countertop and cabinetry.

#3 The Flooring. Vinyl plank flooring has come a long way in recent years!

#4 The Lighting. The combination of outside lighting and artificial lighting helps make the space feel bright and warm.

5 of Our Favorites From This Beautiful Remodel & Addition

Today’s project is a fun one to share! When we first met this customer they wanted to:

  1. Remodel their kitchen
  2. Remove the wall between their kitchen and living room
  3. Build a room addition that would be their new living room
  4. Convert their existing living room into a spacious dining room

Maybe this drawing will give you a better visual of what they wanted . . .

Layout

So we got to work brainstorming, estimating, and then finally remodeling their home! Here’s some of our favorites with how this job turned out:

1. The Open Layout

Befores (15)

Before (wall on the left was the wall between kitchen and living room)

Afters (15)

After: No wall between kitchen and dining room (plus new addition)

Our favorite transformation in this project was how open the area was after the remodel! The kitchen and dining room looked so much larger even though all we had done was remove a wall!

2. Room Addition

Adding on to your existing house can be very rewarding! This new room addition turned out beautiful and made the house feel brand new!

3. Fireplace

Afters (54)

The customer wanted a fireplace from the very beginning but wasn’t sure if they could work it into the budget. In the end they decided to go ahead and it turned out to be the focal point of the new addition!

4. Matching Game

Afters (79)

Whenever you remodel or add on to an existing house you always run into trying to match the original materials. This happened with the brick wainscot on this job. We found out that the original brick on the house was a color that no one sold anymore . . . but no worries! After some team work and a little ingenuity we ended up creating a custom stained brick that matched the rest of the house!

5. The Kitchen

Befores (2)

Before: Kitchen

Afters (48)

After: Kitchen

Kitchen remodels always deserve their own paragraph. This kitchen got new cabinets and countertops along with undercabinet lighting, backsplash, and recessed lights. It all tied together nicely and made the customer very happy!

Kids’ and Guest Bathrooms Remodel

We know that you love your bathroom. You’ve remodeled your Master Bathroom within the last couple years and now you think your bath remodeling is done. Only then do you realize the guest bathroom and kids’ bathroom . . .

That’s exactly what happened to one of our clients in the Bloomington area!

They gave us a call and setup a time for us to come and discuss their ideas for the kids’ and guest bathrooms. Here are some of the things they were wanting:

  • Kids bathroom:
    • New double vanity
    • New Santa Cecilia granite vanity top
    • New tub with tile surround
    • New toilet
    • New tile floor
    • Fresh paint
  • Guest bathroom:
    • New single vanity cabinet to match another cabinet in house
    • New Golden King granite vanity top
    • New tile walk-in shower with glass door
    • New toilet
    • New pocket door
    • New tile floor
    • Fresh paint

So we took their ideas and started the remodel! We were soon able to transform the two bathrooms into exactly what they were wanting. Below are photos of the project. Enjoy!

Johnson Kitchen small  (7)

After

This was a complete kitchen remodel with new cabinets, flooring and appliances. The cabinets are solid maple with glass door uppers. The counter tops are a wheat colored quartz, with a mosaic tile backsplash. The wood grained flooring is porcelain tile, and this modern kitchen is well lit with new can and pendant lighting.

Bathroom Remodel with New Larger Layout

Sometimes just some simple rearranging of a floor plan can make all the difference.

Earlier this year we had a customer who had a small bathroom that was in need of an update. His bathroom layout (see below) was a poor use of space with a wall dividing the laundry room and bathroom. This made the laundry room only accessible from the kitchen and it made the bathroom feel crowded.

Before Layout of Bathroom

We quickly recognized there was potential to rearrange his layout and give him a larger feeling bathroom. That’s when we came up with the design pictured below. We suggested removing the wall between the bathroom and laundry room, installing a new wall between the kitchen and laundry, and building a closet for the water heater (which had previously been in the kitchen!). This new layout gave the customer the feeling that he had a much larger bathroom and laundry area space even though he didn’t actually gain any square footage!

After LayoutSo since we were changing up his layout why not update a few other items in his bathroom? Enjoy the video below showing off the new tile floor, new vanity and vanity top, new appliances, and new shower/tub unit.

Complete Kitchen Remodel

We just recently wrapped up a kitchen remodel in Bloomington where the customer got all new cabinets, countertops, and flooring! Even though the layout changes were minor, the new feel this remodel gave the kitchen is drastic. Here are a few of the great things we like about this particular kitchen:

  • We installed under cabinet lighting giving the kitchen a bright look even at night
  • The customer picked out a white quartz countertop that makes the room bright and cherry
  • We installed a white tile back splash (the customer picked out) that really complements the countertop
  • We installed new hardwood oak flooring which works well with the cabinets
  • We installed recessed panel cabinet doors giving the kitchen a more modern feel

As you know, a picture is worth a thousand words so here are a few of our favorites (and a video):
