Kitchen Remodel for the Browns

Hatchett Design Remodel renovated the Brown’s master bathroom a couple years ago. After experiencing our design process first hand, the Brown’s decided to hire Hatchett again to remodel their kitchen.

Tried & True Process

With over 60 years of experience remodeling homes in Hampton Roads, we’ve fine tuned our process to make remodeling easy and stress-free for our clients. Our Process consists of 4 phases: Consultation, Design, Pre-Construction, and finally, Construction. The Brown’s kitchen remodel is mid-process. We’d like to share our progress thus far, because this is when it starts getting really fun!

Pre-Construction Process

We recently met with the Brown’s for their pre-construction meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to review the design, double check measurements, confirm selections before materials are ordered, and set up a date for construction to begin. This step of the process is crucial to ensure that the construction phase goes as smoothly as possible. Click here for a 360 Panorama of the kitchen design.

On this day, Jessica reviewed the design renderings and walked through the details of her plan. The Brown’s new kitchen will be more of an open concept than their current layout. We’re opening the wall that separates the kitchen from the living room, yet we’re installing lower cabinets to house the sink and provide storage.

The Plan
We are gutting the space, yet the foot print will remain basically the same. The cooktop will become a range in the same location. The closet pantry will be replaced by built-in pantries around the refrigerator. Jessica is also incorporating a kitchen island into their design.

While we’re renovating the kitchen, we’re also updating the adjacent laundry room and half bath.

We’re widening the entryway by the garage door to make it easier to navigate with groceries. The new flooring in the kitchen will extend into the laundry room and the bathroom. The wallpaper is coming down and lots of new storage cabinets are going up!

Next Step

The Brown’s pre-construction meeting went very well, and the plan is approved. The cabinets, flooring, backsplash tile, appliances and all the materials have been ordered. Once everything arrives, it’ll be DEMO DAY… the first official day of the construction phase. Stay tuned for our next installment of the Brown’s Kitchen Remodel.
