Cabinet Redooring Plus - Downers Grove, IL - Ceranec

We removed all the extra soffits on the ceiling. The existing cabinets on the perimeter remained in place and we added new doors and drawer fronts in maple. Modifications to the space included removing the built-in oven and boxing in the refrigerator. We installed a monster two-tiered island to replace the table and added additional bar height seating and used a contrasting color. Now the homeowners can accommodate up to 14 people!

This project is my own home!  My wife and I had re-doored our oak cabinets about ten years ago.  It was time for a new look, so we kept the base cabinets and I refaced them and installed new upper cabinets. By removing the soffit, we were able to put in 36” wall cabinets with double stacked crown molding. We choose cherry cabinets in the Arlington door style and salem maple color. We bumped out the microwave for some visual appeal and added accent doors above.  Installing a garden window and refinishing the floor with a clean coat gave us the look we wanted.

Although the existing cabinetry was cherry the layout was very clumsy. Filling in the window enabled us to bury the refrigerator in the corner. Rearranging the island made the work-space much more traffic friendly and allowed seating for four. Other touches like a pot and pan drawer, built in microwave and broom closet completed the look. One of my favorite jobs this year!

We refaced this client’s cabinets 12 years ago. They wanted to know if we could enclose their new cabinet depth refrigerator. I suggested bumping the cabinet up to give it some visual interest.

This original kitchen had soffits and a cooktop in the kitchen island.  We removed the soffits and replaced the original cabinetry with taller cabinets and added crown molding.  We moved the cooktop off the kitchen island, giving the homeowner more usable space.  For the final touch to showcase this kitchen, we added pendent and canned lighting.

Removing the pantry enabled us to open the area up for this remodel and improve the sight lines. Soffit removal allowed for taller cabinets with crown molding, and sliding the range to the left gave us equally sized glass doors on both sides. A darker island with turned legs makes it a great focal point.  For the perimeter, we installed new maple cabinets in white with a chocolate glaze.

By moving windows, knocking down walls, and creating pass-throughs, we turned this typical U-shaped kitchen with natural oak cabinets into a gigantic two colored beauty with a two-tiered island. Among other features, this kitchen now has an island sink, walk-in pantry, custom range hood, room to roam around and lots and LOTS of storage. The perimeter cabinets are cherry with a cherry mahogany finish, and the island cabinets are cherry with island charcoal finish.

We added on to the island to make it bigger, trimmed it out with turned legs, refaced it in black and added a different color counter to give it a contrast with the cherry glazed perimeter cabinets. We moved the built in oven to another wall to open up the cooktop area.
