Our client’s kitchen did not do justice to her beautiful two-story home in the Woodlands. Her cabinets sported a pickled finish that harkened back to another era, and her expansive prefab countertops lacked style and character. It was time to update. After reading about TriFection in The HomeMag, she gave us a call and learned about our remodeling process based on Form, Function, and Fit. We discussed a variety of project options available to her and did not pressure her into a direction that would not be the best fit for her budget or lifestyle. TriFection truly cared about her interests, and she chose us as her contractor.
Our client was happy with the general layout of her kitchen, just not the overall appearance. We discussed different remodeling options such as building and installing new custom cabinetry, refacing her existing cabinetry, and painting her existing cabinetry. Given other work she wanted to complete and taking her budget into account, our client chose to paint her cabinets. This would allow her to also update her entertainment center in living room to match, as well as refinish the handrail and posts on an expansive staircase that opened to her main room.
Granite to gush over
Our team got to work applying a professional-grade finish of Sherwin Williams Online paint, a neutral grey color, which switched the tone of our client’s kitchen completely. We painted a built-in entertainment center in the adjacent living room to match. We installed new Youngdale oil rubbed bronze hinges as needed and reattached original hardware in both spaces.
With extensive counter space and a high bar, our client knew her countertop material choice would make a great impact. She wanted something with character and chose Yellow River granite which offers plenty of movement. Our client hand-picked four slabs, and TriFection ensured they were custom fabricated with a beveled edge and installed with the fewest seams and best look possible.
We installed a subway tile backsplash of 3×6 Brites Linen from Interceramic in a broken joint pattern. A new undermount Blanco kitchen sink came from Ferguson, and we carefully put back the original faucet and kitchen appliances.
Painted to perfection
TriFection painted a new coat of Sherwin Williams Ivoire paint on the walls and ceiling and freshened up the original trim work. We also stained the large staircase visible from the main living area and kitchen which leads to the second story. We used a Fruitwood stain color on the handrail, posts and two steps.
The complete picture
Our client is thrilled with her newly remodeled kitchen. Without breaking the bank, she was able to update her space to better reflect her style and make changes to additional areas of her home that she wanted to improve. TriFection’s Form, Function, and Fit solution served her needs well, and she greatly appreciated our sincere approach.
