Its been a while since I last updated the blog, and after completing several jobs, I thought I would take a moment to show the completed Bridgeport kitchen. I will start with some before pictures. This kitchen had lots of cabinet space and a great layout. Most of the work in the kitchen was to update the look of the cabinets and add functionality to the kitchen by using large drawers with soft close hinges.
It's hard to believe, but this peninsula was once basic cabinetry with sides that were simple flat panels. A little work, and it was transformed into this Shaker style peninsula that enhances the look and feel of this kitchen. Honestly, it is once of my favorite changes.
We also changed the look of the countertop by creating a more modern tombstone edge instead of the half round that had previously been on the end of this peninsula. Combined with this faux dark granite created out of epoxy, I think it is an elegant look for any kitchen.
The front side of the peninsula received all new Shaker style doors and drawer fronts. At Cabinet Craft, we offer many different door and drawer options to give you exactly what you are looking for in your new kitchen.
The next few images are along one of the longer walls of the kitchen. The lower drawer banks used to be cabinet doors with a shelf inside. Imagine how much easier it will be to access your kitchen supplies when your change your lower cabinets to full extension soft close drawers. The simple crown used where the cabinets meet the soffit really look great and provide a nice separation between the soffit and cabinets. Many customers ask about removing soffits, but sometimes the expense of rerouting plumbing or electrical can really add up, and crown can still be used to create a separation between the two.
One of the last areas addressed in this kitchen was this long wall with the sink and dishwasher. This section was pretty straight forward, but the final result is amazing!
This kitchen was a lot of fun to work on! There are just so many things I love about the final result. Such as, the beautiful and unique epoxy countertop design, the full extension drawers, and I could go on. Most importantly, the homeowners are delighted with their new kitchen which is always our goal at Cabinet Craft.
When a homeowner called for new countertops to replace their current laminate countertops we jumped at the opportunity. This wide open kitchen and great color scheme left the door wide open for endless epoxibilities.
In this kitchen we were able to create a really unique blend of black colors, and whites to create an incredible design.
It is difficult to pick up on camera, but you would be amazed at the vast array of colors in this design. The homeowners were not only delighted by their new kitchen, but also that it was installed in time to host Christmas.
In this well maintained home, the homeowners wanted to update the look of their kitchen and add some functionality to the existing space. The cabinetry was original to the home and lacked some of the conveniences found in modern kitchens. No worries, Cabinet Craft is here to help. Breaking this job up into stages, we started with this bank of cabinets as you enter the kitchen.
To add the updates these homeowners were looking for, we start by removing the old doors and drawer fronts, and the bead board side panels and face frames.
The lower cabinets were standard cabinets doors with a shelf inside. This is one area of the kitchen that the homeowners were hoping to find a solution for getting on their hands and knees and digging inside this cabinet to find what they were looking for. At Cabinet Craft, we love finding creative solutions to add beauty and functionality to a cabinet and we knew just what to do.
With the doors and shelf removed, construction begins on new face frame components that get installed to create space for new drawers.
With the first two drawers in and sitting on their amazing undermount drawer slides, the bottom of the cabinet received it's drawer slides.
And just like that.....four drawers and a cabinet ready to be trimmed out to look like brand new, custom built cabinets.
These drawers function so well, and once hardware is added the look will be amazing! Check out the full length stiles incorporated into the design at the toe kick to add to the custom look. What was once a cabinet, now looks more like a piece of built in furniture for the space.
This bank of cabinets is now a beautiful, modern, and completely functional kitchen asset with less hassle and far less cost than a traditional kitchen remodel. Next up, hardware, new countertops, and some crown to finish off the top of the cabinets.
