What a transformation! From the floors to the ceiling, this kitchen got quite the makeover! This U-shaped kitchen, which used to feel dark and dated, is now welcoming with its light warm tones and.. just look at that beautiful, custom countertop! No more grout to clean! If you’re wondering if those are the same cabinets, the answer is yes! With some new paint and accessories, these kitchen cabinets almost look brand new. These homeowners can’t wait to enjoy their new kitchen.

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kitchen with building paper, and then went to town removing the appliances, countertops, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, outdated light box, and cabinet doors and drawers. We also reinforced the plywood sub-tops with steel straps to support the new quartz counters. Toward the end of the day, we created the template for the new countertops, which take a few days to fabricate off-site.
Day 2– The electrical team began the wiring for energy efficient, long-lasting LED recessed light fixtures. Five six inch can lights were placed strategically around the kitchen to optimize the lighting over workspaces.
Days 3 & 4– Next, we used metal-stud framing to sheetrock the ceiling at the old lightboxes and then hung and taped the sheetrock. The sheetrock at the countertop was also repaired and made ready for the new tile backsplash.
Day 5 & 6– 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. The sheetrock at the countertop was also repaired and made ready for the new tile backsplash. The painters then began refinishing the kitchen cabinets in this Modesto home. Two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy semi-gloss Acoustic White paint 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.
Day 7 –The walls and ceiling in the kitchen also received a fresh coat of Kelly-Moore paint. Ostrich Egg paint with an eggshell finish was applied to the walls in the kitchen and the ceiling received a fresh coat of Acoustic White.
Day 8 & 9 – The countertop installation team arrived to install the beautiful Blanco Precis Silgranite super single bowl sink in Biscotti and the MSI Bedrock quartz countertops with an eased mitered edge detail. The tile artisans were on site to install the Bedrosians Mediterranean Beige 3″ x 6″ ceramic tile on the backsplash, along with the complimentary Bedrosians Espresso eclipse linear mosaic tile as an accent. The tile was grouted using Bostik Peaches and Cream grout.
Days 13 & 14– Lastly, the kitchenCRATE team installed the homeowner’s new appliances. The transformation then hit the home stretch with the installation of the freshly-painted 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 of all construction debris.
