We’re excited for our most recent kitchenBOX project for many reasons.

  • We get to transform a great 1970’s ranch-style kitchen into a modern marvel.
  • We get to work with some fantastic homeowners who are even more excited than we are to get the project under way.
  • And we get to use quartz for the countertops! (Want to read up on this material? Check out the website here…)

That’s right: after offering quartz as a kitchenBOX countertop option for just a few months, we have our first project in which to install this wonderful material.  Their choice? Q from MSI in the color Rushmore.  It’s going to be great!

Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenBOX

After purchasing this bank-owned property a few months back, the homeowners immediately commenced repair and updating.  The overgrown landscaping was removed, the broken windows replaced and an assortment of immediate repairs were made.

And then, like a huge pink elephant in the room, their kitchen kept staring at them.  The yellow tile countertops, the dingy, dark-oak cabinets, the sheetvinyl flooring.  All of them saying “I need to go!”

So in came kitchenBOX, and in just a month or so, this homeowner went from “we hate our kitchen” to “we’re getting a new kitchen!”

The Current Kitchen Specifications

  • Countertop and Backsplash: Yellow 6″ square tile with brown grout.
  • Cabinet Finish: Original stain-grade cabinets.
  • Cabinet Hardware: Aged brass hinges and dated pulls.
  • Sink: Almond cast-iron.
  • Faucet: Standard chrome, low-rise.
  • Lighting: Light box with inset fluorescent.

KitchenBOX Add-ons

Like so many of our recent kitchenBOX clients, this homeowner elected to add 6-5″ LED can lights to their project.  These energy-efficient, high-output, cool-to-the-touch lights are a fantastic addition to any kitchen.

In addition, we’ll be bringing a new gas line in to the center island for the new KitchenAid Gas cooktop.  Curious what other add-ons kitchenBOX offers? Check it out here…

The kitchenBOX Project Scope

The kitchenBOX team began the transformation on Tuesday, August 6th, 2013. On day 1 the kitchenBOX team set the kitchenBOX, installed plastic walls for dust/fume protection, 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 9 days (the lighting modification and gas line install are adding three days to this project), the kitchenBOX crew will:
