Transforming a Kitchen from Outdated to Outstanding: The Gold River Kitchen Remodel

Often referred to as the center of the house, the kitchen is where loved ones congregate to enjoy meals and create lifelong memories. But an old kitchen might seem less like a haven and more like a relic. A recent makeover of a kitchen by kitchen & bath CRATE in Gold River, California, serves as the ideal illustration of how a room may be entirely renovated to satisfy contemporary standards for both elegance and utility.

The American Bar Court home’s original kitchen was in need of a re-fresh due to out-of-date cabinetry, older appliances and an overall generic simple look. In order to create a modern and elegant kitchen that meets the demands of a contemporary home, the old fixtures and finishes had to be renovated. Let’s check it out what the CRATE team did with this fun kitchen remodel!

1. Elegant and Durable Cabinetry

The installation of new cabinets by Falton Custom Cabinets was a crucial component of this renovation. These were no ordinary cabinets; instead, they were made of paint-grade maple, which is renowned for its smooth surface and longevity, making it ideal for a high-traffic area like the kitchen. The shaker door faces on the cabinets, with their 45-degree inner bevel and full-overlay design, gave them a sleek and contemporary appearance. A minor but important luxury, all cabinets have Euro soft close hinges and glides, which guarantee quiet and smooth closing.

2. Luxurious Countertops and Functional Fixtures

The counters were swapped out with excellent quartzite countertops from Tempest Crystal and Montblanc, both of which have been perfectly polished to provide a high-end appearance and a sturdy surface for all kitchen activities. The breakfast bar on the island cantilevers 12 inches into the living room to provide additional area for informal eating or morning coffee.

A Ruvati Roma undermount stainless steel sink with sound-dampening technology added a special touch to the sink area. An elegant touch was added by way of a Delta Essa faucet in Venetian Bronze. The cabinetry was designed with a pull-out trash can, recycling area, and baking pan divider for enhanced utility.

3. Updated Appliances for Modern Needs

The installation of high-end equipment greatly increased the kitchen’s usefulness. These included a Thermador Professional Single Wall Oven, a Thermador Emerald Dishwasher, a Thermador Freedom Built-in Refrigerator and freezer, and an induction cooktop, all of which were chosen for their exceptional quality and energy efficiency. In addition to having a stunning appearance, these contemporary appliances are designed to meet the demands of a busy kitchen.

4. Aesthetic Enhancements with Tile and Paint

The installation of BTS Celine porcelain wall tiles in a matte white finish, arranged in a horizontal straight set pattern for a modern vibe, significantly enhanced the kitchen’s visual attractiveness. A matte porcelain pencil liner was used to finish the backsplash, adding a modest yet chic touch.

The walls, painted in Sherwin-Williams’ Amazing Gray and Wordly Gray, provided a neutral background that let the countertops and cabinets pop, which was a major factor in the makeover. Roycroft Bronze Green was applied specifically to the island and buffet cabinet, giving the area a distinctive touch.

5. Lighting and Finishing Touches

In order to ensure that every area of the kitchen is well-lit, this redesign featured the installation of 14 recessed can lights with a daylight glow tone. Over the island, pendant lights were also added to offer useful and aesthetically pleasing concentrated illumination.
