Hours: Mon – Fri: 7:30 – 4:00; Sat – Sun: ClosedThis family finally decided they had had enough…
They had endured their old kitchen long enough and were (more than) ready for a change.
On the list of things that had to go was a dining room collecting dust and cobwebs.
(It wasn’t really collecting cobwebs, but it wasn’t getting used.)
They wanted to open up the space and give the old nook a new lease on life.
They contacted the team at Miracle Contracting in Fort Wayne, and used the company’s video walk-through feature to show them the layout of their kitchen.
The team at Miracle Contracting got to work on a plan to bring some much-needed excitement to the client’s home. And boy, did they deliver.
First, they taped off the doorways, windows, and entries to keep the demolition dust contained to the kitchen renovation space.
Then they staged their tools and got ready to tackle the job.
They took note of all the useless structures and walls clogging up the space and marked anything that needed to be preserved during the demolition so they didn’t destroy anything valuable.
And all of this…
Yes. this wall too!
It all had to go.
Then they got work removing the old dark wood cabinets and outdated fixtures and appliances.
Pulling out the old flooring, and taking the drywall off the walls, partitions and soffits that had to be taken out.
Taking out the walls, and redoing the electrical and piping for the appliances that needed a new home.
Then ripping up the old subfloor as the final step in preparing the blank canvas.
With the electrical and plumbing all finished, it was time to put the insulation back in the exterior wall and get ready to start the new buildout.
The team buttoned up the walls and ceiling with new drywall.
And got everything cleaned up and ready for painting.
Starting from the bottom up, they installed the new flooring (it’s mostly covered by paper to protect it during construction, but you can see it peeking out at the ends)…
Put in the base cabinets that would support the counter, and installed the dishwasher, new sink, and stove with a double oven.
The refrigerator surround cabinets on the opposite wall came next, along with the wall cabinets over the countertop.
Finishing the cabinet install and putting in the base of the bench seating against the far end wall (previously the old dining room back wall).
Then closing in the space above the upper cabinets with stylish trim, replacing the trim around the window, and prepping to install the hood above the stove range.
The final result was a parallel kitchen design that might make even the snobbiest of foodies jealous.
The kitchen renovation involved several custom features to make the space flow from the original kitchen footprint into the new design.
They removed a wall to create an open-concept kitchen, added a built-in bench (for all the extra guests the family would now be able to invite over)…
And installed a tile backsplash and solid surface countertops.
An updated sink and faucet were, of course, high on the list of changes that had to happen.
And of course, no kitchen renovation is complete without semi-custom cabinets, updated lighting, electrical and fixtures. They finished off the renovation by adding vinyl plank flooring and all new appliances.
Check out the tile backsplash that goes all the way to the ceiling behind the range vent.
The breakfast nook seating area makes great use of the space beneath the windows, and with the wall removed there is now a lot more natural light in the kitchen from these large windows.
The family has a beautiful new kitchen that is highly functional and that they will enjoy for many years.
