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.

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 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.

Callahan Kitchen Remodel

The Callahans were expecting their second child when they decided to undertake a remodel. This growing family needed a more functional kitchen to help their daily routine run smoothly, and our design team at Hatchett Design Remodel was happy to help!

Initial Consultation

In the Callahans’ initial consultation with Meghan and Tara, we learned what they liked and didn’t like about their kitchen. Their biggest complaints included the kitchen peninsula and the lack of useful storage space.

The original kitchen peninsula cut the kitchen off from the living room, and this proved to be a nuisance. The Callahans wanted the two rooms to flow together as one. Replacing the peninsula with an island was the obvious solution, but finding the right island design was challenging. The angles of the kitchen floor plan meant that a standard rectangular island would not sit well in their space, so Tara custom designed an island that fits perfectly in the Callahan’s new kitchen.

The Design Phase

In order to create more functional storage space, Hatchett extended the wall by the stairs and removed a closet. Doing so created ample room for additional wall cabinets and a large pantry cabinet as well. Unlike the original cabinets, their new Echelon cabinets provide extra storage space by extending all the way to the ceiling.

The Callahans chose their Echelon cabinets when they visited Hatchett’s Virginia Beach showroom on Selection Day. Visiting our showroom allows clients to see and touch the materials that will be used in their remodel. This step in our design process not only ensures that you will be pleased with the finished project, but it also makes it easier to make decisions about your materials. The Callahans, for example, knew they wanted two-toned cabinets for their kitchen – white uppers and colored lower cabinets; but they weren’t sure which color they wanted on the bottom. As soon as they saw the blue green hue of Echelon’s Baltic painted cabinets in person, they were sold!

The hints of gray in their Atlantic Quartz countertops help tie the light and dark cabinets together. They then chose wood plank tile for the backsplash to bring warmth to the space and mimic their floors. For the cabinet hardware and fixtures, they opted to embrace the trend of mixing metals. They picked matte black pulls for their cabinets, and their son chose this beautiful chrome faucet for the sink in their island.

The Construction Phase

The Callahans’ first born child also proved to be quite handy come Demo Day. He’s one of the most promising apprentices that Dennis has ever had.

Mrs. Callahan described their experience with Hatchett as “enjoyable and smooth.” She added, “They listened to our wish list and designed our kitchen to match. We are so happy with the finished product and love using our new kitchen”.

We had a great partnership with the Callahans, and our design team thoroughly enjoyed working with them throughout the remodeling process. The completed project turned out beautifully… and just in time. A few short weeks later, the Callahans welcomed their second child. Congratulations to Mom, Dad and Big Bro!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
