All they wanted was someone they could trust. After a bad experience with previous contractors, these Jersey Village homeowners were hesitant to even consider another project. Then, they heard Tom Tynan on SportsRadio 610 during HomeShow Radio describing his personal experience with TriFection. It was enough to earn TriFection an initial visit.
Trust a neighbor’s kitchen update advice
When TriFection owner Jeff Roberts first met with this couple, he pointed out that one of our best clients lived just a few doors down the street. As a matter of fact, we’d already remodeled multiple rooms, there including one of our recent kitchen updates. So, Jeff arranged a meeting where these prospective clients could inspect our work and hear first-hand about the TriFection experience.
Once they heard about our level of professionalism and saw our craftsmanship up-close, they became impressed enough to know TriFection could handle this kitchen update and meet their very exacting standards. It turns out these clients were extraordinarily meticulous about every selection detail. And, rightfully so; they wanted to ensure that every choice was “perfect.” We provided all the help they needed as they evaluated countless options. And not once did we cause our clients to feel rushed in the process.
Attention to detail changes direction
We remain committed to delivering kitchen updates that meet and exceed expectations. Because we take time to listen carefully, it sometimes results in starting the process over from the beginning. That’s exactly what happened when these clients decided to change design direction. It’s all in a day’s work at TriFection.
Our clients agreed that removing upper cabinetry above the bar area between the kitchen and living area would make the kitchen more open and welcoming for entertaining. The lost storage space was offset by removing furdowns around the rest of the kitchen. We would instead use the space to add new aesthetically pleasing upper cabinets with added storage going up to the ceiling.
A top to bottom kitchen update
TriFection’s carpenters crafted stunning solid maple square-style cabinets with cove raised panels dressed in a dark oak stain. Brushed nickel cabinet hardware from the Uptown Appeal Collection at Berenson Hardware provides a modern look. We topped the cabinets with Mountain Mist quartz countertops with a bullnose edge, which provides the perfect setting for a Kohler undermount sink with Hansgrohe faucet in a Steel Optik finish. Then, we used a contrasting Yukon Blanco quartz material for the island countertop, set off perfectly by two pendant lights.
Undercabinet lighting puts our clients’ meticulous taste on display across the backsplash of Crema Vosscione, a tumbled, natural limestone 4”x4” tile from Arizona Tile, which is accented by a Puccini natural stone mosaic liner. The unique mural above the cooktop is made of Bianco Wood Gray Dot Basketweave tile from Keystone with a framed border of 2”x12” Puccini natural stone.
The choice of floor tile was Imola Ceramica Tivoli, a 16” porcelain with an antique stone effect. It’s the perfect counterpoint to the Sherwin Williams Popular Grey walls with Pure White trim.
A kitchen update demands updated appliances
Our clients topped off their kitchen update with a selection of high-end stainless steel appliances from Nor-West Appliances, including: a Dacor induction cooktop, convection microwave and convection oven, a Zephyr venthood, a Fisher & Paykel twin-drawer dishwasher and an Electrolux counter-depth, side-by-side refrigerator.
Start of a new kitchen update habit?
As we completed the project, our clients expressed to us their thrill with the overall outcome. They became particularly glad that they listened to Tom and learned of TriFection’s proven track record in their neighborhood. In fact, before contacting us, they had been speaking first-hand with loyal TriFection clients.
“Everyone on the team was so professional and patient throughout the entire process,” they told us. “We were very impressed with the level of planning, organization and communication. We just LOVE our new kitchen. It adds so much to our house!”
Their hesitation is a thing of the past; they’re eager to have us back to complete other work around the house before they entertain family for the holidays.
