From blah to beautiful, this kitchen’s transformation not only updated the look but rearranged the way the room functioned.  The homeowner knew from the day they bought the house that the all white kitchen would have to be remodeled.  In the process, the workspace was improved.   Warm Alderwood cabinets with raised panel fronts and bronze hardware replaced the sterile white cabinetry.  This room has certainly banished the blahs and become elegant as well as more useful.  Read more and see more photos of this project.

Just like in Jericho, the walls came tumbling down in this older home. Four rooms become one, providing a much more up to date open area with space for living, dining and cooking.  This remodel completely changed the look at feel of the entire home!  The homeowners wanted a large open area for entertaining and that is exactly what they got.  This new open kitchen is not only much more functional and pleasing to the eye, and but will also greatly increase the home’s value.

When the water heater in the attic sprung a leak damaging the most of the master bathroom, the homeowners decided it was time for a complete remodel.  It was way past time to replace the builder grade white melamine cabinets and standard beige tile.  The bathroom now features custom designed marble tile shower and floors.  A special feature is the heated tile floor to keep them warm throughout the winter.  I guess something good comes out of everything.

After months of searching, the Devlin’s found this Preston house with a huge wooded lot and the perfect location, but unfortunately the home was not large enough for their family and was in desperate need of an update. After consulting with TrendMark to evaluate the possibilities for the house, they decided to purchase the home and move forward with an extensive whole house remodel and addition. TrendMark successfully implemented all of the necessary improvements to the home to create the perfect combination of a beautiful home, large yard, and convenient location. The remodeling project included a 2-story 1600-square foot rear addition to give their family the much needed additional space.

First thought was panic, second thought…call TrendMark.  When the homeowner returned home to see the sheetrock dripping off the ceiling and walls on the first and second floors of their home, they thought the entire house was going to fall.    A leak in the water heater in the attic had wrecked havoc on almost the entire house.  Repairs were made throughout the first and second story to not only renovate, but improve at every step possible.

Calming and reassuring the homeowner was the most major difficultly encountered.  After an emergency visit, they were reassured that not only could the house be complete repaired, it would be even better.  It was the perfect opportunity   Every effort was made to create a seamless repair in the ceiling, walls and floors and make improvements wherever possible.

The homeowner dreamed of a huge kitchen with the biggest island possible to serve as a meeting place for their family and friends.  As part of a larger two story additions, this kitchen was enlarged and completely remodeled.  The result is the perfect area for cooking and entertaining.

In the kitchen a coffered ceiling with canned lighting hovers over a huge 8’ square island with dark black rubbed cabinetry softened by Brazilian Giallo ornamental granite brimming with golds, creams and browns accented by black and gray swirls. The legged island houses pass-through cabinetry, an undermounted farmhouse sink with a bronze faucet, and a GE dishwasher, while an extended side provides casual eating space.  This awesome kitchen reinforces the lasting quality of good design, providing both beauty and function.
