Our client in the River Oaks area loves to cook. As she thought about remodeling her kitchen, she drew inspiration from many hours spent window shopping online. With every picture she gained more ideas and fueled her dreams of a kitchen where she could really cook. It’s no surprise that by the time she called TriFection, our client had a clear vision: more appeal, more functionality and more storage. Her project is a prime example of how TriFection marries Form, Function and Fit.
Eliminating clutter with a kitchen update
As is the case with many older spaces, this two story townhouse kitchen was hopelessly cluttered. Counters were covered with small appliances and items needed for a very active cook. The challenge would be maximizing storage and improving accessibility within the existing kitchen footprint.
Custom cabinetry transforms this kitchen update
TriFection’s in-house custom carpenters went right to work creating new solid beech wood cabinets with end panels painted Sherwin Williams Alabaster in the kitchen and breakfast area.
Because every TriFection cabinet is a one-of-a-kind creation, we regularly do things that are not possible with pre-fab cabinets. In this kitchen update, for example, we created a decorative venthood cover as well as shelves and baskets designed specifically for storage of cookbooks, decorative displays and the personal items of a committed foodie.
Countertops every cook would love
Because this is a cook’s kitchen, our client asked us to custom fabricate 3cm Teixeira Soapstone countertops that look especially beautiful when illuminated by the undercabinet lights. Soapstone is a durable, relatively less-porous natural stone that works well in a kitchen setting, despite its softness and limited color options. Our client also chose a soapstone farmhouse sink along with a complementary prep sink, both fitted with stainless steel Hansgrohe fixtures.
We then installed a special-order Chateau pewter mural, complete with a pencil liner, on a Carrara marble backsplash. We found all of this stunning material at Crossville Tile and Stone.
For the floor, our client chose Pietra d’Assisi 16” tile, also from Crossville, accented nicely by Light French Grey Sherwin Williams wall paint. All of the selections throughout the kitchen tie together effortlessly.
Little touches add a lot to this kitchen update
We relocated a gas line and water line in order to place the new pro-style range and pot filler in the ideal location for our culinary artist. With a clutter-free kitchen, everything is in the perfect place for the creation of her masterpieces.
Our client is delighted with how TriFection brought to life the kitchen vision she formed through many hours of search. Now, her only question is, “What delicious dish should I make next?”
