Spangler Kitchen Remodel

The Spanglers have traveled the world and display their collection of menus from their favorite restaurants in their dining room. Through their travels, they have cultivated a worldly style that is evident in every room of their home, except for their kitchen. In our initial consultation, Mrs. Spangler mentioned that she’d like for their remodeled kitchen to have a Mediterranean flair. With that inspiration, Eileen started designing!

Tile Selection
When Eileen showed Mrs. Spangler our Twenties Vintage tile, she instantly fell in love with it. We used that tile for the accent above the range, but she wanted something with more color for the rest of the backsplash. In a serendipitous stroke of luck, we had just received a new sample of the Revalia Celebration Teal mosaic tile. It was exactly what she wanted!

Custom Cabinets & Countertops
The cabinets are Ultracraft Eurotek. They chose Cape May Grey Mist for the base cabinets, and Jamestown Dove White for the wall and tall cabinets.
Spangler Kitchen Remodel Two-Toned Cabinets
To complement the light tones of their cabinets, we installed Silestone Eternal Calcutta Gold countertops. Together, the cabinets and counters create a neutral palette that allows the backsplash to be the focal point of the space.

Stainless Steel Accents
Stainless steel is another beautiful neutral that’s been incorporated into this design. The GE Cafe appliances, Kohler Vault apron sink, and the Kohler Simplice Pull-Down Faucet gracefully blend into the design and allow their stunning backsplash to shine.
Menus from around the world on display in the Spangler dining room
The Spanglers’ new kitchen is as unique as their experiences, and it’s the perfect place to recreate the dishes described on their menus from around the world. Kudos to Spanglers’ design team – Meghan (Design Consultant), Eileen (Designer), and Kent (Project Manager) – for adding another happy customer to the Hatchett family.
We can design and build a kitchen that’s uniquely you too. Reach out to our design team, or visit us at our showrooms in Newport News and Virginia Beach. It costs nothing to ask!

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).

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!
