Refinished & Remarkable

Beauty, Peace & Light

One of the first questions we ask prospective clients is “How do you envision the space”? This client answered by telling us that she wished for Beauty, Peace & Light in her kitchen remodel. And that is exactly what we gave her. To begin, we at Tri-Lite Builders strive to make all of our clients’ dreams come true. In addition, our team of Nationally Certified Kitchen & Bath designers will make sure that your new space will be more functional, convenient, and beautiful. This particular kitchen had a great floor and quality cabinets going for it, but it also had some issues. It lacked storage space and it’s finished dated the home. Now, this space is refinished & remarkable.

Rich Espresso Cabinets

The existing cabinet color, laminate countertops, appliances, and wall finishes desperately needed to be updated. Due to the fact that the ceilings are so high, our designer suggested adding a second row of upper cabinets to provide additional storage space. Furthermore, she proposed having the existing cabinets refinished to match the couple of new ones that were being added. This would assist with budgeting, too, as refinishing existing cabinets is a lot less expensive than purchasing them all new. Some of the new cabinets had a glass door insert and we added applied moldings to the island in order to dress it up a little. Finally, all of the cabinets were painted a rich, espresso color, crown molding was added, LED tape lights, new door hardware, and soft-close hinges completed the cabinet install.

Refinished & Remarkable

While the River White granite calms and quietly contrasts the dark espresso cabinet color; Calcata Oro marble has been used on the backsplash for its’ colors and reflective properties. Next, wine storage was added at the desk area and cubbies were built under the new pass-through to show off treasured memorabilia. The homeowner then chose a soft gray paint color for the main areas of the kitchen and added a pop of color with a cheerful yellow accent wall. In addition, we replaced a fixed window with a beautiful and practical garden window. Now our homeowner can grow fresh herbs in her fabulous kitchen.
