Our client’s 1964 Kingwood home reached a point where remodeling updates were less an option than a necessity. The kitchen was an obvious starting point, but so was the full bath downstairs. Instead of choosing which, our client opted to have TriFection update both.
Kitchen remodeling updates aplenty
The idea of remodeling her kitchen began with a wish for new countertops. Our client didn’t want to start over with all new cabinets. Instead, we gave the existing cabinets an updated look by staining them in Mission Oak, which nicely complements the rest of the kitchen remodeling updates.
For her new countertops, our client chose Santa Ornamental granite countertops with a bullnose edge from Omni Surfaces. We added a Linen Cream Atrium mosaic tile backsplash from Crossville Tile and Stone, accented with a 4” Lucente Vetro mosaic liner.
Before we could install her new stainless steel appliances, we first had to update the electrical circuits in the client’s kitchen to bring them up to code. We then installed two satin nickel pendant lights and seven recessed LED can lights.
We were surprised to find the exhaust hood venting into the attic. Before we could install her new stainless hood, we first properly re-ducted it to exhaust through the roof.
Finally, we covered the floor with Bluestone Colorado Buff porcelain tile from Crossville in a broken joint pattern. To finish out the kitchen, we also removed the old dated wallpaper before floating, texturing and painting the walls in Sherwin Williams Diverse Beige.
Remodeling updates for the downstairs bath
Our client’s downstairs bathroom was once a half-bath. It was long ago expanded into a full bath that our client described as ugly and outdated.
The big, old tub was the first to go. That cleared space allowed us to create a large walk-in shower covered with Fog porcelain wall field tile from Crossville. For the shower floor, our client chose Genoa Multi Mosaic floor tile from Emser Tile. We used this same tile on the back of the shower soap niche. To finish out the shower, we then installed frameless glass with oil rubbed bronze hardware and Delta fixtures.
Custom cabinetry is a TriFection specialty
One of our client’s complaints with the downstairs bath was lack of storage. So, our custom cabinet team designed, built, finished and installed a custom red oak vanity. We topped it with a Santa Ornamental granite countertop, featuring a bullnose edge. For added storage, we also created a shallow linen cabinet with raised panels.
Both the vanity and linen cabinet were finished with Mission Oak stain. The entire room comes alive under the light of four new LED recessed can lights and old world finish three-light vanity fixture from Quorum International.
The dated wallpaper was then removed and the walls painted with Simplify Beige from Sherwin Williams. That left the floors, which we covered with 12”x24” Perspective Taupe glazed porcelain tiles from Emser Tile in a broken joint pattern.
Three’s the charm with remodeling updates
Our client LOVES her new kitchen and bathroom remodeling updates.
“It’s awesome,” she says. “The shower is huge, and the tile is gorgeous!”
It’s so gorgeous that she’s already engaged us to remodel her upstairs bathroom, too. You could say after winning the Daily Double, she’s now going for the TriFection Trifecta!
