A fresh face built on old bones

fresh cabinet face on old bones

An aging kitchen with good bones is the best candidate for a budget-saving custom cabinet facelift like the one we performed for a TriFection client in Katy.

IMG_2754We refer to cabinet boxes as bones because they are the basic structure of a kitchen. In this case, our client’s MDF cabinet doors were deteriorating, but the boxes were sound. Unfortunately, they were topped with white Corian cabinets. This white-on-white look was dated and lacking in character—until we got our hands on them.

TriFection’s in-house custom cabinet shop created all new solid-wood doors and drawers. While we maintained the look of white cabinets preferred by our client, we topped the new cabinets with River Bordeaux granite counters and Torrean Mini Versailles tile backspash. New undercabinet lights now allow our client to both set a mood and show off her beautiful granite and backsplash combination.

IMG_2770While the client kept her disposer, dishwasher and microwave oven, we replaced the standard kitchen sink with a durable Kraus stainless steel undermount sink, re-using the existing faucet. This mix of old and new left money in the budget for a foodie’s upgrade.

After removing the old oven-in-cabinet and replacing it with pullout drawers for better storage, the client replaced the oven with a new Wolf gas-fired range for heavy duty cooking and a sleek Vent-A-Hood to clear the air and complete the modernized look.

This kitchen is a classic example of TriFection’s mission of bringing together Form in the refreshed look and feel, Function in the better use of space, and Fit in how the room works for their everyday life and budget.
