We were called in to paint their kitchen and possibly the kitchen cabinets. But the time we were finished we had painted nearly the whole house. Their cabinets were in great shape, but they were dark medium wood color. Once we gave them our ideas to refinish their kitchen cabinets, we went for it. Deciding to go with a warm gray based on the colors in the granite countertops. Once we added more canned lights in the ceiling and more trim about and below the cabinets, the project really came together. Gray paint colors are hot right now and this color was truly unique. We refinished the cabinets professionally, applying several coats and a finish on top to ensure they would always remain perfect.
We’ve done hundreds of cabinets over the years, but this was by far our largest job to date. With 55 doors and 40 drawers plus all the base units, it took a good deal of time, but the results were amazing.
We added other touches like caps at the end of their cabinets with molding to provide a finished look. We added crown molding across the top. When some contractors finish installing your kitchen cabinets it looks as though the cabinets are just hanging there. When we finished this job it felt as though their cabinets were built-in there and meant to stay for years to come.
Once it all started to come together it was obvious we needed to start in on the bookcases that surround the fireplace. We did them the same colors as the cabinets and since this house has an open floor plan it really made the room sing.
From there we moved into the living room. And brought some of the same warmth and elegance into that room. It made the flow of the house feel calm and inviting.
We ended the job by moving into the dining room by adding a certain sophistication through the use of color. It was a great job and we really enjoyed making the homeowners so happy.
