Our clients wanted to update their kitchen but didn’t want the huge expense purchasing new cabinets.  Solution…paint the perimeter cabinets and add in a large custom island.  The island included a wine refrigerator, built in microwave, wine rack, lots of drawers/cabinets and a mixer lift.  New Coretec flooring (laid on top of tile), quartz (perimeter) and marble (island) countertops, granite composite sink, coil faucet, cook top, wall mount hood fan and tile backsplash brought this kitchen to life.  It was a huge transformation and our clients are thrilled!  Here are a few before and after pics:

Oversized Kitchen Seating? Yes, Please!

One of our clients recently moved into a lovely condo but it was impossible to fit all of her oversized furniture in the smaller living room. There is a kitchen eating area but she has no plans to buy a dinette set since she has a dining room right outside the kitchen. So where can we put an extra comfy chair? In the kitchen, of course! A great little spot to have coffee and read the paper… or catch up on Instagram. BEFORE AFTER

Kitchen Update

We were so excited about this kitchen make over! We changed the flooring to the luxury vinyl Coretec, gave them a new tile backsplash, gorgeous dark granite countertops, new recessed lighting in the work area, an updated fixture in the eating area, and painted the room to be a softer and more modern color. These things gave them a huge transformation without having to change the cabinets. Check out the before and afters! Before After

Condo Kitchen Update

Check out this recent HauteMove condo kitchen update! We replaced flooring with Coretec Luxury Vinyl, which is perfect for condos and basements.  We are also seeing it used more and more in restaurants.  It looks great, has cork backing, and it is waterproof!   We painted the cabinets, added new hardware, and new backsplash in a herringbone pattern.  The old track lighting gave poor lighting (shadows) so we removed it and added recessed, under-cabinet and pendent lights. We don’t have many before and after pictures for you but the changes made a huge difference as you can see below. The lighter,

A New Home Transformed Part1

HauteMove was recently called in for a complete home renovation. The wallpaper, cabinets, and various detail dated the home and needed a huge refresher that a mere coat of paint couldn’t accomplish.   After extensive consultations with the client, we got to work! We completely gutted the kitchen and master bathroom, installed new hardwood floors throughout, painted, installed new lighting, luxury vinyl floor throughout the basement (from Coretec Luxury Vinyl Flooring…it’s beautiful!), and various other details. Since the whole house is worth a walk through now, we’ll show before and after pictures in installments. First up? The Kitchen! BEFORE We took
