We had a large kitchen with tile countertops we just hated, lots of very pooly organized cabinets and a boring all whiteish color scheme. We wanted a bold design statement, an efficient kitchen with more compact prep and cooking areas, good storage and and a family eating area.
New Zodiaq countertops, tiled flooring, painted baseboards and trim. Added and moved cabinets around, added and changed appliances, new lighting, sink, plumbing, pantry drawers, external mount extractor fan, RO water hot tank/chiller system and a major new expanded island including a dining area.
We are very happy with everything, took about 4 months to complete but only had 2 days without sink and water - simply not possible with a contractor. Only contracted trades were floor tiling and countertop fabrication and install.
