kitchen recession remodel

A"Recession Remodel" was just the ticket for this homeowner who wanted to rent her condo, but didn’t have the funds for a full-on remodel.

We oversaw the work — doing most of it ourselves and then a little subcontracting for the tile work and carpet install. Here’s a quick recap of what we did for this kitchen: New paint on walls and cabinets, new flooring (which we installed ourselves), new lighting fixture, new appliances and new stove hood.

Our client kept the retro white tile and the cabinets, which were in good shape, but just needed a fresh coat of taupe paint. Everything else is new, and sourced at bargain prices wherever possible — without scrimping on quality. (For instance, we found the completely new and still in the box $800 Maytag cooktop for $300 on craigslist!)
