Horton Kitchen Remodel

Mr. and Mrs. Horton recently purchased a condo in Chesapeake that was almost everything they wanted. Before they moved in, the Hortons hired Hatchett Design Remodel to put the dreamy in their new dream home.

Rethinking the Floor Plan

One of the bigger construction goals of this remodel required widening the entryway between the family room and the kitchen to create an open concept. This also created floor space for a larger, more useful kitchen island.

To make the space more functional, they also opted to replace the French doors from the kitchen to the deck with pantry cabinets and a wet bar. There’s another door to access the deck from the family room, so this wasn’t a tough call for them.

Material Selections

The Hortons visited our showroom in Virginia Beach to make their material selections. They chose Midcontinent shaker style kitchen cabinets painted Divinity White as well as several bonus accessories. These beautiful cabinets are outfitted with wonderful features such as hidden trash can pull outs, spice pull outs, tray dividers, deep pot & pan drawers and roll trays.

They originally selected a mosaic tile backsplash, but we wound up going with the classic simplicity of subway tile for a cleaner look.

The counters are topped with Fantasy Brown Granite. To complement the color scheme of the granite, we selected hardware and plumbing fixtures in brushed nickel. The finished project is stunning, and the Hortons couldn’t be happier with their new kitchen.

That makes us happy too! Kudos to our design team led by Jake (Design Consultant), Tara (Designer) and Dennis (Project Manager).

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 Many clients hire Hatchett to simply update their out-of-date spaces.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.
