Dreambuilder 23: Kitchen Remodel
13269 Huguenot Ln, Jacksonville

Kitchen remodel

[juicebox gallery_id=”11″]
  • This 1980s kitchen was in dire need of an update, sporting oak cabinets, blue countertops and a closed-off feeling from the adjacent family room
  • We opened up the space by removing the wall between the kitchen and family room to creating a bar and eating area
  • By removing the soffit above the cabinets, we were able to increase their height and storage capacity
  • We made the owner’s previously unused furniture island the centerpiece of the room
  • Brand new, all wood painted cabinets with soft close drawers update the kitchen to the 21st century
  • Granite countertops, a beadboard backsplash and designer lighting bring added character
  • Stainless steel appliances by Whirlpool include a French door refrigerator, double oven and separate cooktop
  • An authentic restaurant booth and bright colors create a comfortable and happy space

Dreambuilder 12: Interior Remodel
1265 Ovington Rd S, Jacksonville

Kitchen transformation

[juicebox gallery_id=”14″]
  • AWARD WINNER: 2011 First Coast Remodelers Awards
  • This kitchen was last updated about 35 years ago
  • A room of the time, it is a small room (only 8′ x 14′) and so suffers from a lack of storage space, too many entrances and a closed-off feeling
  • Outdated cabinetry and old, malfunctioning appliances make the kitchen difficult to work in
  • Dreambuilder opened up the kitchen to the dining room, eliminated the doorway to the living room and built out a new pantry
  • New, modern cabinetry with granite countertops and a tiled backsplash were installed
  • Behind the scenes, the home’s electrical system was brought up to current code, allowing us the electrical power to install a new wall oven with built-in microwave, separate cooktop with hood and a disposer

Dreambuilder Nine: Interior Remodel
2377 Chartley Lane S, Jacksonville

Master bath spa

[juicebox gallery_id=”15″]
  • AWARD WINNER: 2011 First Coast Remodelers Awards
  • A bath with a lot of potential but with the lowest grade finishes
  • Original builder spent as little as possible with laminate tops, plain white tile and ‘Hollywood’ lighting
  • Poorly installed shower has resulted in water leaks around enclosure, causing damage
  • Oddly designed floorplan creates awkward traffic patterns and many doors that open into and infringe upon the room
  • New bath configuration eliminates linen closet and doubles the size of the shower; additionally, a new pocket door at the water closet eliminates swing doors encroaching on the room
  • Luxury shower is a walk-around complete with two shower heads (with handles conveniently located at the shower entrance), bench seating and built-in niche shelving
  • Kohler Archer soaking tub and lavatories pair with Moen Icon plumbing fixtures in this contemporary bath
  • Beautiful gray-blue tile is accented by coordinating pebble tile on shower floor, created a cool, serene color palate
  • Sleek, full-overlay cabinetry with granite top includes convenient countertop cabinet column for additional storage
  • New mirrors, light fixtures and accessories complete the look
