A Dark & Daunting Kitchen Becomes Light & Bright

Brian and Catherine want granite countertops, so these dated laminate tops are on borrowed time.

Remove countertop, fur down and valance over the sink

Brian and Catherine want granite countertops, and they want to remove a fur down that serves no clear purpose other than to display overhead décor.

So, we’re removing the dated laminate countertop and tearing down that fur down, along with the valance over the sink.

The valance above the sink dates this kitchen, and it really has no function, so we’re removing it.

Install Granite Countertops and Faucet

Next, we set the island slab. Stone Interiors, the granite installers, cut out the opening for Catherine’s cooktop and did the same for the sink.

Brian and Catherine’s kitchen now has granite countertops — a nice upgrade from the institutional looking white laminate.

Brian’s business came in handy for this renovation because he created a “digital backsplash,” a custom, vinyl backsplash that no one else has.

We also added a new faucet from Delta’s Allentown Kitchen Collection.

Add Hardware and Light Fixtures

We outfitted Brian and Catherine’s kitchen with Rok Hardware’s knobs and hinges.

And remember those unflattering fluorescent lights?

They’re gone — replaced with these stunning fixtures from Linea Lighting.
