This kitchen had the original set of cabinets built in 1958. While they were quality cabinets for the time, the owners wished for a more modern and updated look. We were commissioned to fabricate new cabinets and countertops, as well as new face framing and doors for an existing built-in cabinet.
The owners gave the walls a fresh coat of paint to liven up the appearance of the kitchen and give it a totally new look.
The walls of this home were very much out of plumb, 5/8" in 36," as well as the floor being very much out of level. To use factory built cabinets would have meant a lot of shimming and moldings to hide the shims. Also the soffit was not centered on the window, resulting in the wall cabinet on the left being 1 1/2" wider than the cabinet on the right to be able to retain uniform margins. The owners have removed the original valance for ease of painting, and I have removed the cove moldings going all the way around the cabinets to facilitate scribing the new cabinet end panels to the wall.
