It's finally finished... the lux townhome project I've been posting about since October! The demo and paint went really quickly and I thought we would complete this project in record time. But alas, we had major setbacks with the flooring and tile crews which slowed us down a good 6-8 weeks. Such is the life of a remodel project.... you just never know.
In todays post I'm sharing all of the project materials we used. I'll also link my original design post so you can see which walls we removed and the stairwell plan. It's so important to have a design plan up front to guide you throughout the entire process! The design plan for this project is below and what I presented to the homeowners at the start.
I used J&k cabinetry for the kitchen and three bathrooms. Their line is a great price point, but they are quite limited as to door style and color. If you just need the basics, they are a great resource.
To add interest and contrast to the all white kitchen cabinets, I designed a custom hood and repeated the shiplap on the rear wall of the coffee bar. We used a yellow pine tongue and groove to achieve this look.
One thing I learned with this project is that you can use any big box store crown molding to top off your cabinets and save a good bit of money. Cabinet crown is expensive! You will need to paint your crown the exact color to match your cabinets though. This approach is really helpful if you are trying to match an existing crown molding style in your home.
The countertops are honed lava stone quartz and offer a nice contrast with the light floors and cabinets. They also help blend the dramatic charcoal backsplash which makes a bold design statement on its own! Dying over the tile selections? Me too! The large center hexagon is Rise by Lili Tile and the miniature solid hexagon is Black Hex by Shaw Floors.
It was a bit of a challenge getting these tiles to lay flush along the wall because the cement tile is thicker than then the rest. In the end, the installers decreased the thickness of the drywall behind the cement to solve the problem.
The owners love the extra large center island which has ample storage, an apron front sink, dishwasher and double trash can. The sink is the Kohler Whitehaven and the faucet is Kohler Crue.
The Adler pendant light by Gabby Home works great over the island because of the different ceiling heights. If we had hung two fixtures spaced apart, one chain would be way longer than the other.
The cabinet hardware is the Emtek American Designer collection in a satin brass finish. It's good quality and feels solid in hand.
Lastly, the townhome is built on a concrete slab so we went with laminate floors that are waterproof. They are Chesapeake Flooring and the style is All American Premium color Malibu Chesnut.
And that's a wrap for this beauty! The neighbors have been coming by to see what all the fuss is about and just can't believe their eyes! The transformation is stunning and the owners couldn't be happier!
Next week I'll feature the great room with a massive fireplace and new cable stair rail! Thanks for stopping by!
