Full Kitchen RenovationPosted by Sanaya K. in Prospect Heights
Full kitchen demo and renovation. Need help w/design, demo, and install. Redo floors, cabinets, counters, backsplash, lighting, new appliances, put in dishwasher.
An old kitchen. The cabinets were cheap when installed 40 years ago and now they're falling apart. It's an L-shaped small kitchen, with a separate pantry (marked Closet on the floorplan).
The basics: all plumbing stays where it is, new floor tile, appliances and cabinets, the wall between kitchen and pantry comes down, and the fridge moves into the pantry.
Everything must go.
Scope of work
A bigger, more open space that allows for better flow/movement and more countertop space.
I want to move the fridge into the pantry area to increase the counterspace and allow for more people to hang out in the kitchen.
These pics are inspiration only, as we are at the beginning of the project.
Alan was very communicative, and always reachable by phone, email, or text. This was my first big renovation project, and he took it in stride. He also put me in touch with a great kitchen designer at Lowe's who helped me layout all the cabinets.
The speed! Alan estimated that the work would take 5 weeks and he was wrapping up in the end of the 4th week, which was amazing.
Alan was very on top of the timeline, and nudged me to make decisions quickly when necessary. He was also helpful in making certain decisions - materials, etc. - and solving various design issues that came up.
