Why the Homeowner Chose kitchenCRATE

After 35 years of service, this kitchen is ready for a facelift and these homeowners are ready to make it happen.

The original stained cabinets, formica countertops and fluorescent light box have seen better days.  And even though the cabinets are well-built and ready for another few decades of service, the dark stained look no longer resonates with the homeowner.  So kitchenCRATE will be in and out in just a few days, leaving behind an amazing living space ready for cooking, entertaining and above all else, enjoying!

The Current Kitchen Specifications

  • Countertop and Backsplash: Formica with a short Formica backsplash.
  • Cabinet Finish: Cabinets in need of significant refinishing.
  • Cabinet Hardware: None
  • Sink: Stainless Steel, original to the kitchen.
  • Faucet: Standard chrome, low-rise.
  • Lighting: Fluorescent fixture with acrylic lens.

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