Ahh…Christmas Vacation in the Mermaid House.
In Sunny, Warm Florida.
Sun, Sand, Shells, Shark Teeth, Boats, Shopping, Shrimp for Days and a Kitchen Remodel.
A Kitchen Remodel!?
Yes. One Day to Transform the Kitchen!
With a Company that I found On-Line. Trend Transformations.
We are putting in Recycled Glass Countertops.
The Color – White Star (White with tiny silver diamond sparkles)
“You can feel good knowing these countertops are super eco-friendly because they are composed of up to 72% recycled glass. That glass is then combined with man-made semi-precious stones, which is why these countertops are so shiny and stunningly beautiful. Truly the perfect combination for remodeling your kitchen, bathroom or commercial space.”
Here is the Kitchen Before Photo. The On-Line Photo to Sell the House.
We never stepped foot in the house before we bought it. I know. Crazy.
The countertops were old laminate in a dull muted beige. In fact, the entire kitchen was beige with a beachy smoke-tinged wallpaper border at the ceiling.
We looked into what was the average cost of kitchen updates and then we painted the top cabinets white and the bottoms turquoise. The burlap inserts in the cabinets were kept, mostly because it was a fast update. We added a tin backsplash. We replaced the pulls with contemporary simple stainless pulls. The fixtures remain white which is fine. The sink was battered and stained.
Oh…look back up…the Greek Goddess at poolside…she did not come with the house. Too bad. 🙂
Hello Trend Transformations.
New Recycled Glass Countertops in White Star. New Stainless Under Mount Sink.
The Trick with these Countertops is that they go over the Existing Countertops. No Demolition. We were originally looking at getting Atlanta Granite Countertops but we decided on recycled glass in the end. Granite would’ve looked beautiful in our kitchen but we had a very limited budget, I must admit!! I’m pretty pleased with how the countertops turned out in the end though.
One meeting to measure and create a template.
The countertops are made off site.
One day to Install over the Existing Counters. Only the Old Sink is Removed.
Take a Look…
Equipment Ready for Action.
New Counter In. Ready for a Perfect Fit.
