6 Designer Top Picks – Signature Hardware

The Signature Hardware collection was the subject of a training session that Hatchett Design Remodel‘s design team recently attended. After the training session, we asked the designers to share their favorite fixture and tell us why they love it.  These are their 6 top picks.

Allison: Kitchen Faucet
Allison’s favorite fixture from the Signature Hardware collection is the Beasley Faucet. She says, “it is ergonomically stylish and perfect for any trendsetter.” With a traditional, slim body, it’s curve appeal gives it a more contemporary aesthetic. She recommends it to our clients, because it is versatile, sleek and classy. This faucet will add flavour to your kitchen!

Katie: Bathroom Faucet
Katie loves the whole Signature Hardware collection, but when forced to pick a favorite, she chose the Greyfield widespread bathroom sink faucet in brushed gold. As she told us, “I love that it mixes a modern feel with traditional elements to make it very classic & timeless.” We recommend this piece for any client who wants to make a statement in their bathroom.

Tara: Bathroom Vanity
Tara selected the Manolin vanity as one of her favorite pieces from the Signature Hardware collection, because “I love it’s Mid Century vibe. It makes it to get a great looking cabinet for your bathroom!”

Jessica: Freestanding Tub
The Kateryn Cast Iron Skirt Tub in Pacific Night is Jessica’s current favorite piece from Signature Hardware. Navy is her favorite color, and the contrast with the white interior makes this tub very striking. The style of this model is timeless with just a touch of modern appeal. She added, “I think it would be the star of any bathroom!”

Eileen: Bathroom Vanity
What’s not to love about Eileen’s favorite piece, the Bisbee console vanity? She admits that she’s a sucker for anything green, and everybody loves storage space in their bathroom. The Bisbee console vanity gives you both! Storage is always highly desirable, especially in small bathrooms. This modern, colorful vanity is stunning while providing both visible and hidden storage.

Stacia: Kitchen Faucet
Stacia’s favorite Signature Hardware item is the Caribana Kitchen Faucet in Brushed Gold. This two-tone faucet will add WOW-factor to your kitchen without being overbearing. As she explains, “This faucet has an eye-catching, elegant look that makes a great focal point in the kitchen.” It also provides the flexibility of using matte black, brushed gold, or both types of finishes throughout the rest of the kitchen design.

Thank You for a Successful Year

As 2021 comes to a close, we can’t help but look back on this year, and we’d like to show our gratitude to everyone who made it a success. Coming off one of the hardest years we’ve ever encountered, our team, our vendors and our clients all helped make 2021 a year that makes us very proud.

Toys for Tots 2021

Hatchett Design Remodel recently wrapped up our annual Toys for Tots drive, and we thank all who contributed. It warms our hearts to see how our team members and clients rallied together to make Christmas wishes come true for so many kids in our community. Your generosity is appreciated more than you know.

Expanding Our Family of Vendors
It’s not news that COVID-19 brought many challenges to all industries. Thanks to our incredibly resourceful and resilient team, we were able to adapt quickly and continue building beautiful renovations for homeowners throughout Hampton Roads.
As we encountered supply chain challenges, Hatchett Design Remodel expanded our family of vendors to help shorten lead times and complete projects in a timely manner. Cabinets are an essential part of remodeling both kitchens and bathrooms, and we are grateful to all of our cabinet vendors for the quality cabinetry they supply as quickly as they can. This year we added Urban Effects frameless cabinets as well as Mantra Cabinets that were featured in a recent blog about the Vincent’s remodeled kitchen.

Embracing This Year’s Design Trends
We also saw new trends emerge in 2021, and we love the way our designers embraced these design elements. Wallpaper has made a strong comeback this year. Jessica made some bold wallpaper recommendations to the Owen Park family and showed us all how stunning wallpaper can be with the right design.

In the Zizzo project, Tara demonstrated how two-toned cabinets can add dimension and character to a design. She also incorporated floating shelves against a tile backsplash that extends all the way to the ceiling. Simple yet stunning!

Happy Holidays, everyone… and we’re excited to see what’s to come in the new year. Cheers to 2022!

Vincent Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel

Mr. and Mrs. Vincent chose Hatchett Design Remodel to renovate their kitchen and create an open concept living area. They enjoy hosting family functions with their children and grandchilden, and an open floorplan would provide a larger space for everyone to gather.

Open Concept Kitchen

In their initial consultation, our design team determined that the first step was to remove the wall between the kitchen and living room. Then we also needed to move the wall between the kitchen and guest bathroom. By converting that bathroom into a half bath, we were able to put that square footage to better use in their new kitchen.

Vincent Kitchen Island

Once the kitchen was opened up, we installed a large kitchen island that seats four people, and it gives the Vincents extra space for food prep and storage.

Storage Solutions

Ample storage space and easily accessible cabinets were priorities for the Vincent family. Their new kitchen cabinets are chocked full of storage solutions. Features like their new pull out shelves, a trash and recycling bin cabinet, and lazy Susans in the corner cabinets provide easy access to everyday needs. We also installed a drink cooler, so their grandkids can help themselves to snacks and drinks.

Coffee Bar in the Kitchen

As a treat for the grownups in the family, the Mrs. Vincent requested that a coffee bar be worked into the design of their remodeled kitchen. This new nook, with floating shelves custom built by Kent, is the perfect spot to fuel up for the day ahead.

Materials for the Vincent Kitchen Remodel

The Vincents wanted a bright space, so Eileen recommended light colored cabinets to help bounce light around the room. They chose the color “snow” for their Mantra cabinets. The Omni doorstyle is a classic recessed panel with clean lines that are ideal for a transitional or contemporary design style kitchen. For some contrast with the cabinets, Eileen suggested Silestone Negro Tabas countertops and matte black pulls from Top Knobs. The matte black Moen faucet is also a nice contrast to their Kohler Whitehaven apron sink. Then the backsplash, Statuary Bright 3×6 subway tiles, tie the light and dark elements together.

The Vincents are so excited to finally have the perfect kitchen for entertaining their growing family, and we couldn’t be more proud of our team that made it happen. Kudos to Michael (Design Consultant), Eileen (Designer) and Kent (Project Manager).

Zizzo Kitchen Remodel

When the Zizzo family decided it was time to remodel their kitchen and bring it up to date, they called Hatchett Design Remodel. The Zizzos have a strong sense of personal style. They worked closely with their design team at Hatchett to create a stunning new space for their family.

The Zizzos chose cabinets by Ultracraft with a clean modern door style. We decided to create contrast by using a combination of dark gray “Pepper” paint of some of the cabinets and “Raw Cotton” textured melamine on the others. The countertops are MSI quartz Premium Plus White, and the backsplash is made of 3×12 white subway tile with dark gray grout.

Their cabinets are stacked to be 51” H. By extending the upper cabinets to the ceiling, we created tons of storage.  So much so that they haven’t even filled all of their cabinets yet! To maximize the functionality of their storage cabinets, we included spice rack pull outs, tray dividers, a corner pull out unit, multiple large drawers for pots and pans, and TWO double trashcan pull out cabinets – one by their range and one by their sink.

Kitchen Island & New Flooring

Their original kitchen had a large walk in pantry that we removed to allow for more cabinetry and counter space. We removed the small angled island and replaced it with an almost 13 foot island. Even with this enormous island, we still had room in their kitchen to keep 45”-51” wide walkways around it. Then in replacing their flooring, we also extended the new Mannington laminate throughout the entire first floor. The laminate flooring they chose is Parchment from the Restoration Anthology collection.

All of their appliances are the GE Monogram line including a 42”W refrigerator, ice maker, beverage cooler, microwave drawer, and a 48”W double oven range complete with a warming shelf above.

Their kitchen is absolutely stunning, and the Zizzos are so happy with how everything came together. They were such a fun couple to work with and really seem more like friends to us now. It was a pleasure to help them bring their dream kitchen to life, and we are so proud of the work done by Zizzo’s design team: Michael (Remodeling Consultant), Tara (Designer), and Adam (Project Manager).
