KitchenCRATE is back on Chenault Drive in North Modesto for our third project (and second kitchen) in the past year!  This 1969 kitchen needs some help, and in just a few days you won’t even recognize it…

Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenCRATE

After seeing the CRATE a few houses down, the customer decided to look into kitchenCRATE for themselves.  They started with a quick phone consultation, enjoyed learning more during an in-home consultation, and then after approving the proposal, moved right into the interior design phase.

The quick project execution was certainly the biggest advantage for this homeowner and, when combined with the competitive pricing, this homeowner felt kitchenCRATE was the right match.

Oh, and what started it all?  As with most kitchenCRATE projects, there’s always one feature of the existing kitchen that annoys the customer to no end.  For this customer, it was the flower tiles at the backsplash.  Yes, they are small, and unassuming, but the homeowner simply could not live with them any longer!

The Current Kitchen Specifications

  • Countertop and Backsplash: White 6″ square tile with brown grout.
  • Cabinet Finish: Cabinets in need of significant refinishing.
  • Cabinet Hardware: Outdated bronze pulls.
  • Sink: Stainless steel triple bowl.
  • Faucet: Standard chrome, low-rise.
  • Lighting: Fluorescent fixture with acrylic lens.

KitchenCRATE Add-ons

The homeowner will be adding a few additional features, including recessed LED can lights, removal of the upper cabinet over the island (this actually saved money on the project!), flooring demolition and enlargement of the island countertop.

The kitchenCRATE Project Scope

The kitchenCRATE team began the transformation on Tuesday, April 22, 2014. On day 1 the kitchenCRATE team set the kitchenCRATE, installed plastic walls for dust/fume protection, protected the flooring, removed and set-aside the existing appliances, demolished the countertops and backsplash, repaired the counter sub-top, removed the doors and drawers for off-site painting, templated for the new quartz tops and prepared the remaining cabinet boxes for prime and paint. During the following 7 days (the lighting modification is adding an extra day to this project), the kitchenCRATE crew will:
