It all started with the outdated linoleum floor.

You know the type—perhaps you even have it in your home—rusty red faux brick linoleum. One day, the owner had the idea of a new floor and maybe some new countertops. They weren’t ready to do anything yet: sure, their wallpapered kitchen and oak cabinets were outdated, but it really did work just fine. But when the nails started popping up from the linoleum, the owners agreed to a whole kitchen remodel.

They did their research, interviewing three different remodeling companies and chose our company. Our lead designer proposed the smart solution of removing a load bearing wall and adding a six square foot addition to their kitchen. This opened up a new world of possibilities - making the kitchen larger, while maximizing counter space and creating a near perfect circulation pattern between the kitchen and existing sunroom.

“Refined Renovations used quality craftsmen for all aspects of the project. They presented various suggestions throughout the project which allowed us to incorporate special elements into the design.”


Once this clever addition was completed, the kitchen was finished with a classic mix of painted and custom walnut cabinetry, brushed brass hardware, and a patinated tile floor juxtaposed with gleaming quartzite countertops. Additionally, the owners upped their lighting game, adding an elegant, stylish fixture above the new kitchen island, and installing a stunning orb light in the sunroom that draws eyes upward towards the cathedral ceiling


At our suggestion, the owners also decided to add some additional renovation work to their home in order to complement the look and feel of their newly refreshed kitchen, including mudroom space, an updated powder room and a brand new laundry room, complete with new countertops and custom cabinetry.
