Scope of Work: Kitchen Upgrades – Floor Installation, Countertop Replacement, Glass Tile Backsplash
Town: Madison, NJ 07940
Timing: 1 1/2 weeks
A full kitchen remodel is typically the most costly and time consuming of all home projects. However, making kitchen upgrades doesn’t have to require a large budget and time commitment. For this Madison, NJ kitchen project, we did not change the layout or the cabinetry. This saved lots of time and money. So, what we did do was upgrade the wiring, replace the countertop and backsplash, and replace the floor. Additionally, new stainless steel appliances were incorporated.
This dated kitchen featured linoleum floors, brown laminate countertops, old appliances and wiring that did not meet current standards.
First, we got the kitchen to code by updating the wiring. We removed the existing countertop and flooring. Then the new quartz countertop was templated and fabricated. During this time, we installed new flooring. In this instance we installed porcelain tile with the look of wood planks. We removed the floral wallpaper border, as well as the old backsplash. After the countertops were installed, then the backsplash was installed and the room was painted.
An additional option that would have really changed the look of the kitchen was painting the cabinetry. We’ve painted many dark oak cabinets a bright white, which really opens up and brightens the space. Along with new hardware, and you can have a kitchen that looks brand new. We typically spray the cabinets to give them a factory-finish look.
