The kitchenBOX team is hard at work today on our next project, a complete kitchenBOX renovation on Buckboard Way in Richmond, CA.
Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenBOX
The Buckboard Way clients moved into their new home in early 2011.
They loved the location, the layout of the home, the spacious backyard and many other features of the home. However, the 1980’s kitchen had to go. After exploring different remodel concepts, they decided kitchenBOX was a great value and a perfect fit for one main reason: the homeowner loved the kitchen layout, they just didn’t like the dated look.
The Current Kitchen Specifications
The Buckboard Way kitchenBOX project focuses on updating the original 1986 kitchen, currently featuring:
- High-quality yet dated oak cabinets
- 6″ white tile countertops with (gasp!) black grout
- 6″ tile backsplash
- White cast-iron sink with chips and scratches
- Economy-grade chrome faucet
- Sheet vinyl flooring
- A 1980′ “light box” with track lighting and articulating heads
The kitchenBOX Project Scope
Beginning Monday, July 9th the kitchenBOX team will be transforming this kitchen into a modern testament to new finishes.
