Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenCRATE

Time, time, time.  Yes, once again, the kitchenCRATE difference was the time it would take to turn this dated kitchen into a modern masterpiece.

Having gone through kitchen renovations in the past, this savvy homeowner knows how long most remodel can take.  And the idea of losing use of their kitchen for months did not sit well for this busy family.

Instead, they elected to have kitchenCRATE take care of it all in just a few weeks, including quite a few add-ons.  And when we’re done, they’ll bring a flooring contractor in to replace the wood flooring in the rest of the home.  After that,  all they’ll have to do is sit back and enjoy the summer months in a brand-new interior!

The Current Kitchen Specifications

  • Countertop and Backsplash: White 6″ square tile with tan grout.
  • Cabinet Finish: Yellowed cabinets in need of significant refinishing.
  • Cabinet Hardware: None
  • Sink: White cast-iron, original to the kitchen.
  • Faucet: Standard, low-rise.
  • Lighting: Fluorescent fixture with acrylic lens.

KitchenCRATE Add-ons

In addition to the base kitchenCRATE elements, the homeowner is adding new 6″ LED can lighting and LED undercabinet lighting and converting the existing sink to a new Kohler apron-front sink.

During the following 7 days (the lighting modification is adding an extra day to this project), the kitchenCRATE crew will:
