|Mr. and Mrs. Browning contacted Hatchett Design Remodel, because they wanted to update the kitchen in their Virginia Beach home. Overall, they were happy with the bold green color of the walls and the footprint of their kitchen, but they wanted the space to be more functional and up to date.
White and Bright
The original space was dark and felt heavy. The new white shaker cabinets from Mid Continent really pop against the bold green color of their kitchen walls. The new design is bright and cheerful.
The layout of the Brownings’ kitchen remains the same, but we increased the size of the island and replaced their furniture pantry with a larger pantry cabinet.
These design choices added to their overall storage space and created a more cohesive look. For even more storage space, their new cabinets extend higher up the wall giving them another shelf of storage inside each cabinet.
In their base cabinets, we installed pull-out drawers, spice pull-outs, pot lid holders, tray dividers, trash can pull-outs, and 2 Lazy Susans that help keep their kitchen supplies well-organized and easy-to-access.
The Brownings have so much storage now that they haven’t even filled all their cabinets yet. They are very happy with how their remodeled kitchen turned out, and they love showing it off to friends and family.

Don Hatchett was born and raised in Newport News, and he was brought up in the family business. His father, Clarence Ford Hatchett, founded the company in 1960 with a vision to provide exceptional construction services. At its inception, the business was strictly a siding and roofing company.
Transition to Design/Build Business Model
After working under the mentorship of his father, Don succeeded Clarence as the company’s President in 1993. During the 90s, Don expanded Hatchett into a design/build firm. His goal was to focus on the design aspect of a remodeling project as much as the construction. In 2016, Hatchett Design Remodel opened their second showroom in Virginia Beach to better serve their Southside customers.
Through his leadership, Hatchett Design Remodel has evolved with industry design trends and standards. Much has changed yet the company’s values remain intact. Our mission is, and has always been, to provide the highest standard of service to our clients. The only way we can accomplish that is through the knowledge, devotion, and hard work of our team.
Education & Professional Leadership
Don matriculated from Belmont Abbey College with a B.A. in Business & Economics, and he was recognized as Who’s Who among students in American Universities and Colleges. He is Past President for Peninsula Housing & Builders Association, Peninsula Remodeler’s Council and Tidewater Remodeler’s Council.
Don is married to Terry, his wife of 42 years. He works side by side with his two children, Michael and Meghan, who have made him a grandfather three times over.
When he’s not at work or off spoiling his grandchildren, Don spends his free time golfing, boating, fishing, traveling or just relaxing in the Outer Banks.
Don is proud of his family and the business they’ve built together. We are all honored that more than 18,000 clients over 60 years have entrusted the remodeling of their homes to Hatchett Design Remodel. Don believes that our success as a design build firm is due to the continued support of our customers and the incredible talent of our people. In his words, “for that, I am deeply grateful.”
When you’re ready to remodel your kitchen, bathroom or addition, Don hopes you’ll consider Hatchett Design Remodel for the job. Feel free to call or visit our showrooms in Newport News or Virginia Beach. And like Don always says, “it costs nothing to ask!”

At Hatchett Design Remodel, we understand that renovating your home is a big investment, and we don’t take that lightly. When you put money into updating your house, you’re paid back in both quality of life and increased home value. To ensure that you get the most out of your investment, our design team will guide you through every step of the process. We will create a space that gives you longevity as well. A Hatchett remodel offers longevity, because we use quality materials in a timeless design. The Quenville master bathroom remodel is prime example.
Choosing a Color Palette with Longevity
For their home in Poquoson, the Quenvilles opted for a neutral color palette that offers a long lifespan for their new bathroom. Their Ultracraft cabinets from the Cape May collection are finished in gray mist, and the vanity is topped with fantasy brown granite. The veining in this stone blends tones of gray and beige together, as does their choice of flooring.
Their Adura Max luxury vinyl plank floors are Margate Oak Coastline. The weathered driftwood coloring of this flooring adds to the coastal vibe of the space while remaining neutral enough to complement any design aesthetic.
Their tile selections contribute an earthiness to Eileen’s design. The wall tile for the shower and tub surround is Unique Stone Soft Gris, and the floor tile is Sands Dark Natural. The touch of Art Blue Sea is the perfect complementary tile color for their shower accent.
Staying in Budget
The freestanding tub was high on Mrs. Quenville’s wishlist, but it was one of the more challenging aspects of this remodel. Our design team worked closely with her to find a soaking tub that she liked, but one that also fit in her bathroom. To keep the project within their budget, their tub not only needed to fit in the bathroom itself, but it also needed to fit through their doors without removing door casings or widening doorways.
Thanks to the hard work of Ron (Design Consultant), Eileen (Designer), and Kent (Project Manager), the Quenvilles got the master bath they’ve always wanted.
Every remodeling project is unique, but Hatchett Design Remodel approaches each one with the same goal in mind – a happy customer! When your ready to remodel your kitchen, bathroom or addition, we hope you consider Hatchett for the job. Feel free to call or visit our showrooms in Newport News or Virginia Beach. And remember, it costs nothing to ask!
