Bathroom Vanities & Cabinetry

Choosing the right cabinets and vanities for your remodeled bathroom is critical in creating a well-designed and user-friendly space. In addition to the cabinet style and finish, quality craftsmanship is of utmost importance to ensure the longevity of your remodel. That’s why Hatchett Design Remodel works with companies like Mid Continent Cabinetry.

About Mid Continent Cabinetry

Mid Continent Cabinetry is a long-time partner of ours. With a wide array of customizable bathroom cabinets and vanities, we know you’ll be happy with your new cabinets for many years to come.

Their bathroom cabinet collection provides furniture-quality storage in a variety of styles, colors and finishes to suit any design, including under-sink storage, wall storage, or classic vanity storage.

Bathroom Cabinet Storage

The Scudder master bath cabinets are maple and are painted white. This customized combination of cabinetry provides both under-sink storage and two types of wall storage from Mid Continent’s Towne collection. On the far left side, we installed a wall unit with cabinet doors that allows items to be hidden away from plain sight.

However, between the sinks, we chose an open shelving model for easy access to those items that are used daily.

Vanities for Aging in Place

In the Buckalews’ bathroom, their vanity and wall cabinet are made of oak and finished in a slate stain. The enclosed wall cabinet features Mid Continent’s Concord door style. To the left of the wall unit, we installed an under-sink storage vanity with Concord doors. Then to the right, they chose a wheelchair accessible sink cabinet.  Thoughtfully customized designs like this one allow homeowners to age in place as they head into and beyond retirement.

Traditional Vanities

During the Robinette’s master bath remodel, they decided to remove the large soaking tub. This choice allowed room for all three types of Mid Continents storage cabinets. On one side of the bathroom, they have double under-sink storage vanities and a wall storage cabinet.

In place of the old tub they rarely used, Mrs. Robinette was thrilled to finally have a traditional vanity where she can sit and prepare for her day. These Mid Continent bathroom cabinets are cherry with a cranberry stain and black glaze.

Kitchen Remodel for the Stouts

You don’t have to completely hate your kitchen before you decide to remodel it. Many clients hire Hatchett to simply update their out-of-date spaces. The Stouts, for example, were very happy with the layout and color scheme of their old kitchen.

Hatchett Design Remodel’s task was merely to freshen up the space and improve its functionality.

Custom Designed

The Stouts love to cook, so work space and storage were top priorities in Jessica’s design. She recommended replacing their closet pantry and the desk area by the fridge with built-ins. Next to the range, we added a built-in wall oven and microwave. Then around the refrigerator, we installed built-in pantry cabinets.

Cabinet Solutions

Their frameless, full access cabinets are by Ultracraft. They chose Saddle Stain oak cabinetry with the Shaker Wide door style. The interior of their cabinets include a variety of special features including adjustable shelves, mop & broom storage, tray dividers, pull out shelving, and 2 double trash bases. They use one double trash cabinet for trash & recycling, and the other one is, most importantly, for dog food.

Their pulls are by Top Knobs. They opted for the Charlotte style in brushed satin nickel, which is a beautiful complement to the rich Saddle Stain.

Tile Backsplash

The counter tops are New Caledonia granite. Instead of installing a matching granite backsplash, we created their backsplash with 3×6 porcelain subway tiles. We laid the soft gris tiles from Mosaic Tile in a herringbone pattern for added character in this beautiful new kitchen.

The Stouts already had hard wood floors in their kitchen, so we only needed to refinish them. The end result of this remodel is a warm, inviting up-to-date space where the Stouts can enjoy cooking for their friends and family for years to come.

Scudder Kitchen Remodel

When the Scudders decided they were ready to renovate their home, they called Hatchett Design Remodel. The plan was to remodel their bathroom first, then we’d do the kitchen and add a sunroom. Sadly, before construction began, Mr. Scudder passed away. Remodeling plans were put on hold until Mrs. Scudder was ready to proceed. When she reached back out to her design consultant, Jake, she told him that they waited too long to remodel. She was ready to start the renovations and enjoy their home as long as she can!

Scudder Sunroom Addition Before & After
Mrs. Scudder is a big fan of bright, lively colors, because they make her feel happy. She chose a vibrant blue for her kitchen and the adjacent sunroom.
Scudder Sunroom Addition
With such a bold color choice, her designer, Eileen, recommended light colored cabinets. Embracing the two-toned cabinet trend, they decided on white uppers and a light walnut for the lower cabinets.

Scudder Kitchen Before & After
Mrs. Scudder’s farm sink is also trending. It’s a trend that has proven to have longevity – likely due in part to the size of its basin. While very stylish, a Kohler Whitehave apron sink is ideal for anyone who regularly cooks with (and cleans) large pots and pans.
Scudder Kitchen After
Her backsplash is Hirsch “Make a Statement” glass mosaic tile – and indeed it does! This exquisite tile contains a variety of colors from the vibrant blue of her walls to the warm tones of her lower cabinets. The countertops are Silestone Lusso Quartz. These white tops with earthy-toned veining help tie the upper and lower cabinets together.

These Elk pendant lights are the finishing touch to Mrs. Scudder’s happy kitchen. The blue glass shades inspire the same joyful feeling of finding a beautiful piece of sea glass along the shore.

Eileen has a special place in her heart for Mrs. Scudder and this project. We hope she enjoys living in her remodeled home as much as we enjoyed designing and building it. Special thanks to Jake, Eileen, and the Project Manager, Tyler, for yet another job well done.

Let’s get started on your remodel! Hatchett Design Remodel offers financing options to help, so call or come by our showrooms in Newport News and Virginia Beach. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have… it costs nothing to ask!

Gamache Kitchen Remodel

Mr. and Mrs. Gamache moved into their mother’s home several years ago. They loved the location, view of the golf course and sentimental value of the home, but the house itself left a little to be desired. The kitchen, in particular, was cramped and inefficient.

Rooms throughout the house were in dire need of updating, so the Gamaches hired Hatchett Design Remodel to transform this old house into their dream home.

Demo Day
After our initial consultation, Jessica designed the plans and helped the Gamaches select the materials for their new kitchen. Then the real fun began… Demo Day! The Gamaches wanted in on the action, so the missus took a couple good whacks to say “good-bye and good riddance” to their old kitchen.

Customizing The Kitchen
They were both happy to see the old stuff go. They love to cook and entertain, so they couldn’t wait for our team to make-over their kitchen. Jessica’s design tripled the size of the kitchen by removing a few walls. She also added large windows across the back of the house, so that the Gamaches can fully enjoy their beautiful view. Their new, open-concept kitchen provides ample space for food prep, cooking, baking, gathering, eating and storage!
Their Mid Continent cabinets are cherry with the firestone stain and black glaze. The rich tone of the cabinets is complemented by the softer tones of the Silestone Lyra Quartz countertops and Mineral Stix Mosaic Tile backsplash. We selected stainless steel pulls from Top Knobs‘ Griggs collection as a nice contrast to the dark cabinets.

We plumbed the sink into the island, so it is across from the cooktop. It’s a Prolific Sink by Kohler with a Moen Arbor MotionSense pull-down faucet in stainless steel to match the cabinet hardware.

With such a large, open-concept kitchen, Jessica recommended these Fulton pendant lights by Hinkley to help fill the space. While they are large statement pieces, the airy quality of the design keeps them from looking cumbersome.

The appliances were a very important part of this renovation. These avid cooks chose a Thermador wall oven with a built-in microwave along with a Thermador induction cooktop. The chimney hood and dishwasher are also by Thermador, but they opted for a French door refrigerator made by KitchenAide.

 

The Remodeling Experience with Hatchett

When we finished this project, we asked the Gamaches for feedback about their remodeling experience with Hatchett.

What’s your favorite part of your remodeled kitchen?

My favorite would have to be the island, but it’s a hard choice! The lights are awesome and the induction stove top…cooking is so easy. We also love the appliance garages, the drawer organizers and the sink. So I guess I just love it all!

Why did you choose Hatchett to remodel your kitchen?

We chose Hatchett, because we were so impressed with the renovations you did to our last house back in 1987.

What did you enjoy about the remodeling process?

Our favorite part of the process was watching the design take shape!

What would you change about your kitchen remodel?

Not a thing!

What advice do you have for anyone planning to remodel?

Our advice to others would be to be careful about whom you hire to work on your house! Hatchett’s team helped us through every step of the process. They made what could have been a difficult, stressful process much easier! We trusted them to do the job right, and they consistently exceeded our expectations!
