Project Overview

The clients had recently purchased their house, but the kitchen needed some updating before it could feel like home. We helped them get rid of some outdated aspects and replicate the look of their previous home in Tennessee

Our Favorite Things

Deco Panels on the Peninsula

For an elevated and more cohesive look, we added 5 decorative panels on the peninsula to match their cabinetry. In order to cut down on the need for custom carpentry work, we added a support wall for the bar as well.

Storage Solutions

For more functional storage, we added a Lazy Susan in the lower corner cabinet next to the stove and an easy reach cabinet above it. We also installed rollouts in the larger cabinet on the peninsula for pots and pans storage.

Scope of Work

The original kitchen featured a plate display rack that was a little outdated and the stove had been improperly jammed into the existing spot. We installed all new cabinetry, quartz countertops, and subway tile backsplash. Their original cabinets varied in height, with only half going to the ceiling. For a more cohesive look, we installed taller wall cabinets, going all the way to the ceiling with crown molding and under-cabinet molding.

The clients updated their sink, faucet, dishwasher, stove, and microwave as well as adding a disposal. They also opted for a new water heater halfway through the project.


Project Start

September 29th, 2020

Estimated Completion

November 17th, 2020

Actual Completion

December 11th, 2020

We originally estimated five weeks on-site, but it ended up being about seven weeks. The kitchen was functional again by October 9th, but we did encounter a few delays in finishing installs.

The replacement for a cabinet drawer that was damaged during install first showed up in an incorrect size, so we had to reorder for a second time. Two of the three deco panels for the bar also arrived in an incorrect size. The new stove arrived damaged. Even though we counted beforehand, we ended up having to order a bit more backsplash tile.

Project Costs

Initial Budget: $43,217

Fixed Price Proposal: $47,890

Change Orders: $2,824

Final Project Cost: $49,890

Cost Details

The initial Good Better Best budget for this project was $43,217. With the increase in labor cost due to Covid-19, the Fixed Price Proposal ended up being $47,066.

Typically we let the clients handle the ordering of new appliances. But, with the stove showing up damaged and long wait times on the microwave, we took the liberty of reordering the appliances for them to expedite the process. The associated cost of $2,824 for both the microwave and stove brought the final cost for this kitchen remodel to $49,890.

The clients showed us a photo of the kitchen in their previous home. We color-matched the cabinets in the photo with the Maple Stained Ginger finish in the Hartford door style from Kith’s Eudora line. We reused their existing pulls with the new cabinets.

Counters and Backsplash

The countertops are 3 cm Cambria Berkeley Quartz with round over edges. It embraces the look of natural granite with the great benefits of Cambria quartz countertops. We replaced their outdated backsplash with 3” x 6” subway tiles in the color almond from Daltile.


The clients stuck with their existing overhead light, but we replaced and added some additional undercabinet lights with the Sempria LED lighting from Task Lighting.


We upgraded their single basin sink to a 32” undermount double basin stainless steel kitchen sink from Build with Ferguson with a Moen Arbor faucet.
