Henderson couple intersperses old and new cabinets in kitchen remodel
It’s hard living in a kitchen you don’t like. After 11 years of living with cabinets that were too small and unaccommodating, Jeffrey Quade and his wife, Vickie, considered selling their home in Henderson, Nevada. In the end, renovation won out. “I didn’t want to move,” Jeffrey says.
Problem solved, right? Not immediately. The couple spent a year visiting kitchen remodel showrooms and home improvement centers trying to decide if they should replace or reface their cabinets.
After finding highly rated CabinetCraft of Las Vegas on Angie’s List, the couple discovered they could reface some cabinets and replace others to get the look and functionality they wanted in their kitchen and adjacent family room.
Jeffrey says the ratings and comments Angie’s List members gave CabinetCraft prompted him to call the company. The Quades decided to hire CabinetCraft after seeing its portfolio and talking with references.
Because the kitchen opened to the family room, the cabinets had to match and be positioned to accommodate new appliances, Jeffrey says. He and Vickie also wanted a larger island with a sink. They needed help fitting the new appliances in the space.
“[CabinetCraft] gave us advice and guidance on how to reconfigure the cabinets around the stove and ideas on the island cabinetry,” Jeffrey says.
The Quades spent $28,000 on the remodel. The cost included removing some old cabinets and taking out a built-in desk, new granite countertops and more functional custom cabinets throughout the kitchen, in the island and around the entertainment unit in the family room. Jeffrey says the remodel cost at least $10,000 less than another contractor’s quote and he got what he wanted. ‘It’s higher end and much more functional,” he says.
