These Eagle Mountain (Fountain Hills) homeowners were ready to give their kitchen a facelift. The granite countertops, backsplash, range hood and appliances were outdated and made their kitchen look dark, dreary, and old. They wanted to keep their cabinets and new flooring while still upgrading the look. They also had one of those kitchen desks that they never used and wanted to use the area for a wine fridge. It is common for homeowners with kitchens built in the ’80s and ’90s to request this desk area swap-out as part of a kitchen remodel.
To lighten up their kitchen without ripping everything out, we helped the homeowners choose beautiful light quartz countertops and tile backsplash to accent the existing cabinets and flooring. We custom-fit the new range hood (not an easy task) for the existing space and ducting. To top it all off, we installed new hardware and upgraded lighting.
Upgrading the built-in desk area to a wine fridge was tricky and required our many years of experience to make it work while looking beautiful. It was necessary to add new electrical and make adjustments to the opening and cabinetry so the wine fridge was built-in and the cabinetry around it was seamless. The height was raised up to a standard 36″ countertop height with a new quartz extending the entire length of the space.
The end result of this kitchen remodel was beautiful. The upgrades we made did exactly what the homeowners were looking for; updated the overall style and brought more light into the entire kitchen area. Making small upgrades to a kitchen instead of an entire tear-out can greatly improve the space in a shorter time frame and reduce remodeling costs.
