Hello, Livermore!

We’re so excited to share the start of our first Livermore, CA project.  This job represents the first in our 2014 expansion into the Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin area.  We’re looking forward to eliminating ugly tile countertops, brown grout and dated cabinets in this beautiful area of Northern California!

Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenCRATE

When shopping for their new home, this young family had quite a list of desired amenities.  They found nearly all of them in this 1993 home on Windermere Circle.  However, the kitchen finishes (and a few items in the rest of the home) just weren’t exactly what they wanted.

And that’s where kitchenCRATE steps in.  We’re looking forward to turning this kitchen around in just a few weeks (including the extensive add-ons), and just in time for a first-of-the-year move-in!

The Current Kitchen Specifications

  • Countertop and Backsplash: 12″ granite tile
  • Cabinet Finish: Yellowed cabinets in need of refinishing
  • Cabinet Hardware: None
  • Sink: White, top-mount, cast-iron, original to the kitchen.
  • Faucet: Standard chrome, low-rise.
  • Lighting: Fluorescent fixture with acrylic lens.
  • Floor: Ceramic tile

KitchenCRATE Add-ons

In addition to the standard kitchenCRATE items, we’ll be extending the beautiful laminate flooring into the kitchen and dinnette, adding LED undercabinet lighting, refinishing the front entry doors to the home, adding a few ceiling fans, replacing all can lights in the home with high-efficiency LED can lights,  replacing a few garage doors to accommodate pet travel and refinishing cabinets and replacing fixtures in the guest bathroom, laundry room, hall bathroom, hall and master bathroom.

The kitchenCRATE Project Scope

The kitchenCRATE team began the transformation on Monday, December 9th, 2013. 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 granite tops and prepared the remaining cabinet boxes for prime and paint. During the following days, the kitchenCRATE crew will:
