It’s hard to believe this bright, new, cool-toned kitchen went from drab to fab in just 10 days! There are so many details of this kitchen renovation that we love: the new glass front cabinets, the new tile flooring, the elevated bar-top, it’s just too difficult to choose a few to highlight! But don’t just take our word on how well this kitchen renovation in Merced turned out. Look below for the project specifications and extensive before and after pictures!

Day by Day Progress
(Note: We added a few extra days to our normal 7-day process to accommodate the owner-request add-ons, like these.)
Here’s how we did it:
Day 1 – Demo Day! On this first day, we set up plastic walls to protect the home from dust, protected the path from the entry door to the kitchen with building paper, and then went to town removing the appliances, countertops, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, and cabinet doors and drawers. We also reinforced the plywood sub-tops with steel straps to support the new granite counters. Toward the end of the day we created the template for the new granite countertops, which take a few days to fabricate off-site.
Day 2 – The electrical team began the wiring for the new LED undercabinet lighting, the upper cabinets at the range were removed to accommodate the new stainless steel hood, and the countertop at the sink was raised to create a bar top.
Day 3 – The sheetrock at the countertop was repaired and made ready for the new tile backsplash.
Day 4 – Since all the walls and the ceilings had been protected, our painters began preparing and priming the cabinets in the kitchen. Using a high-grade, oil-based primer every inch of the kitchen cabinets were caulked, sanded and primed. This is the first (and perhaps most critical) step of creating a durable paint finish.
Day 5 – The painters then began refinishing the kitchen cabinets in this Modesto home. Two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy semi-gloss paint in Swiss Coffee were applied to the thoroughly sanded and primed cabinets. This same priming and painting process was used on the doors and drawers, which are painted off-site in a climate-controlled paint booth for the highest possible quality. The walls and ceiling in the kitchen also received a fresh coat of paint. Kelly-Moore Bone with a semi-gloss finish was applied to the walls in the kitchen and the ceiling received a fresh coat of Swiss Coffee semi-gloss paint.
Day 6 – The countertop installation team arrived to install the Blanco Precis Siligranit super single bowl sink in Truffle and the Arizona Tile White Springs granite countertops with a mitered edge detail.
Day 7 – The tile backsplash artisans were on site to install the Arizona Tile H-Line Pumice 4″ x 16″ gloss tiles with an accent of Arizona Tile Soh Stacked Silver tiles on the backsplash. This was grouted using Laticrete Light Pewter grout.
Day 10 – Lastly, the kitchenCRATE team installed the homeowner’s new stainless steel appliances. The transformation then hit the home stretch with the installation of the freshly-painted new Ciminos Shaker cabinet doors and drawers. The final day of the project included an array of “touch-up” items: all outlets and switches were replaced, the Kohler Simplice faucet and Transitional Design soap dispenser, each with a vibrant stainless finish, were installed and the entire project was cleaned.
