This project is what we call a ‘pull and replace remodel‘. The main goal was to update the cabinets, upgrade the countertops to quartz, and added several large drawer bases for better organization. The home owners liked their existing layout and style of their kitchen, but wanted to update the storage and replace their worn countertops and cabinetry.


Design Services & Material Project Cost

Good Better Best Budget: $77,145

During our original design and budget consult we created a design that met all of their needs and fit their budget.

Final Contract Price:  $84,700

The final contract price came in about $7500 over budget because we ended up adding on a laundry room remodel to this project that we didn’t originally plan for in the budgeting phase. Had we not added the laundry room, we would have came in on budget. 

Change Orders: $1,900

Once the kitchen and laundry room remodels started, the homeowner decided to continue his existing flooring into the laundry room. This was the only change order on this project. 

Final Project costs: $86,600

These laundry room and laundry room flooring added on about $9500 to their original budget.

Project Details

Pull & Replace Kitchen Remodel; With a Laundry Room Remodel Add-On

The great part about a pull and replace remodel is the simplicity of everything! We demoed the previous cabinets and counters and put in beautiful new ones.

One of the updates that the kitchen didn’t have before that we added is the several large drawer bases. Drawer bases are much more functional and accessible. They are great for plates, pots and pans, and small appliances. Drawer bases also mean no more getting on your hands and knees to get things!

Another cool feature from the kitchen remodel was the moving of the microwave off of the counter and into a built in cabinet. This not only provides a custom look, but allowed us to add the beautiful wood hood over the range.

Both the kitchen and laundry room have a considerably large square footage. This requires a ton of  cabinetry. The kitchen had 26 cabinets and the laundry room had 12 cabinets. That’s a lot of cabinetry!

In the laundry room we added all new cabinetry and added quartz countertops that match the kitchen. If you notice, the cabinet door style is also the same as the kitchen’s door style. Instead of going with a wood stain, they went with a white painted door instead. Another change we made to the laundry room was removing the dated laundry tub. That had to go! In it’s place we added a beautiful sink and centered it on the wall.
