Since we moved into our home in 2010, we have been less than excited about our kitchen. While it was spacious and modern-ish (the house was built in 2007), we weren’t in love with the light colored wood cabinets and dark granite countertops.
As we didn’t see ourselves living in the house for a long time, we held off on updating the kitchen until we recently decided to give it a face lift, in hopes that it would add value to the house over time. (And also because we decided we are staying put in the house.)
Luckily, we didn’t need to undertake major structural changes such as knocking down walls or relocating appliances. This project was entirely cosmetic.
I’ve always loved a white kitchen, but didn’t want to paint the existing cabinets because it can be easy to mess up and the quality of the work is typically poor. (You can sometimes see streaks of paint.)
With the help of Rob Guerrieri, owner of TNS Customs, we gave the kitchen a complete makeover. Rob was accessible (quick to respond to a text or phone call with feedback) and performed the work better than we imagined.
The majority of the work was done while we were on summer vacation and we totally trusted Rob and his team to be inside our home while we were away.
Here are photos of the work in progress:
This fun project made us realize that the existing tile floors don’t look ideal with the new kitchen. We are open to suggestions if anyone has any.
Home projects are addictive!
