Sometimes just a small change in surfaces can make a big impact on a room. An alumnus of our favorite school (Gig ’em!) wanted to update his kitchen without demolishing it completely. New to the remodeling experience, he wanted a contractor he could trust to provide good advice and smooth execution. He and his wife knew their primary objectives, but they needed some help with the details. After a very informative consultation with one of our fellow Aggie owners, he concluded TriFection represented the perfect fit for this project.
Lowering yet setting a high bar
Our client wanted to lower one side of an L-shaped high bar behind the kitchen sink and extend the counter to make the area more entertainment-friendly and feel more open. The existing laminate counters were dated and lacked distinctive character. So, we needed to find a granite and decorative backsplash that would complement his light-finished cabinets and enliven the room. With help from our selections team, our client wisely chose Silver Pearl granite, which we also used for a backsplash below the remaining high bar. The newly lowered section of high bar required the relocation of electrical outlets and switches as well as sheetrock repair and painting.
For a statement backsplash behind his cooktop, our client chose Venatino, a beautiful mixed glass and stone linear mosaic tile. It immediately catches the eye when entering the kitchen area. We trimmed out the kitchen by re-installing the cooktop, sleek new double ovens (including a convection/microwave combo) from Bosch, undermount sink and faucet. As a final added touch, we hung new crown moulding throughout the adjacent living and breakfast areas.
Smart budgeting leads to remodeling success and future possibilities
Our client is thrilled with the outcome. His kitchen has an entirely fresh look and feel, and he didn’t have to bust his budget to accomplish it. Now, with remaining funds available, he and his wife are already thinking about the next room in their home targeted for an upgrade. Having experienced the remodeling success associated with TriFection’s Form, Function and Fit formula, we expect to hear from them again soon…..
Time for a field trip to experience Aggie remodeling on a larger scale
In the meantime, TriFection has one more problem to solve. During the course of several conversations about Aggie sports, we discovered our Aggie client has not yet attended a football game at the newly renovated and palatial Kyle Field. That is simply unacceptable for a true Aggie fan. So, as a token of our appreciation for the trust he placed in us, we’ll be treating him to some prime seats in the fall.
