This Summit, NJ kitchen, with its oversized kitchen island, featured dark cherry cabinetry and complimentary countertops and backsplash. The homeowner wanted to brighten the room and give it a more modern look. Monk’s painters transformed the existing cabinetry. We replaced the countertop and backsplash.

Scope of Work: Kitchen Makeover
Location: Summit, NJ
Luxe Kitchen Makeover
The cabinetry in the kitchen was very good quality and in very good condition. However, the homeowner requested a cosmetic change. The painters removed all the doors and drawers from the cabinet frames. They hand-sanded and then primed the cabinets. The wall cabinetry was painted with two coats of white paint. The painters lightly hand-sanded each piece between each coat. The painters used a cup-spray application to deliver a smooth factory-like finish.
For the kitchen island, the painters completed the same process. However, the painters gave the kitchen island cabinetry a medium gray paint color.
The countertop installers first templated and then fabricated the tops while the painters were at work on the cabinetry. A thick quartz countertop with a marble look was installed on the large kitchen island. Since it was quartz, the top was one large solid piece without any seams. A thinner version of the same countertop was installed on the wall cabinets.
Once the countertops were in, we installed the new backsplash. The homeowner chose a white beveled subway tile. We installed the tile in a traditional brick pattern around the walls. However, above the stove, we patterned the tile differently. We created a focal point by installing the tile in a chevron pattern.
Lastly, the painters reattached the doors and drawers, and the hardware was reinstalled. This kitchen is bright and light and very up-to-date!
The Wet Bar
Separately, we also painted the bar cabinetry that is found in the home’s living room. These painters coated these cabinets with sleek black paint. We installed a subway style marble backsplash in this area. A totally different color scheme, but the styling ties everything together.
