Another "Mini Interior Facelift"
My clients wanted to do a mini interior facelift before they moved in. They were overwhelmed and not sure where to begin but we were sure that the kitchen would be the area with the most impact so we started there. Because they were starting with builder standard, it was easy to identify what needed to be upgraded. Our recommendations were new cabinets, counters, flooring, appliances, backsplash, paint, knobs and a larger island. They agreed with most of these except for the new cabinets and new appliances, which were out of their budget. Plan B for the cabinets were to have them stained and glazed a darker wood color to make them current. The other discussion with the client was that they wanted granite countertops. Because they cook so much the bigger island was a must. We removed the old one and replaced it with a nice big island. Here are the before and after photos of the kitchen. What a difference a “mini interior-lift” makes.
