Travis Pointe Kitchen Remodel
This home in the Travis Pointe development located in Saline, Michigan was badly in need of updating to serve the needs of the new owners. They were referred to HSA Remodeling for our design services and to complete the construction and installation of the materials.
The current kitchen and mudroom entry from the garage were laid out in a way which isolated their activities from the rest of the home. The U shaped kitchen was too small for anyone preparing a meal while accommodating two active youngsters and required walking around one leg of the U to transfer dishes from the kitchen to the eating area.
The existing arrangement was photographed and several meetings were held with the Clients to fully explore their concerns with the existing kitchen and their desires for the new kitchen and the adjacent spaces. Floor plans and elevations were developed, reviewed and adjusted until everyone was pleased with the arrangement and its associated costs.
The cabinets which had been selected from First Design Cabinetry were ordered in advance to minimize the time required for construction. Permits were obtained and construction began by removing the existing kitchen and opening up two walls to integrate the kitchen into the eating area and the family room.
The floor was removed down to the joists to repair some defective sections and to allow for the plumbing and electrical lines to be installed for the new layout without damaging the ceiling of the finished basement.
New flooring, Croix Walnut, was installed and the finished project began to come together. The cabinets, Diamond Distinction Bailey, pearl finish from First Design Cabinetry were installed followed by Zodiaq Caraway counters. The backsplashes, as you can see in the photos were quite spectacular and are West Hampton Blend. The walls and ceiling were painted with one coat of primer and two coats of finish paint. Appliances and light fixtures were installed, the site cleaned and turned over to the Clients who are really pleased with the end result and have stated that more work will be requested from us next year.
