These Fitchburg homeowners found Sweeney Design Remodel through a subcontractor referral in 2018. They had relocated to Fitchburg to be closer to their grandchildren and hired us to remodel their bathroom. They contacted Sweeney again last year to remodel two main areas of their 2007 home—the kitchen and laundry room. This “pull-and-replace” kitchen remodel required gutting both spaces while still working within the existing layout and protecting the flooring (leaving it as is). They wanted new appliances, updated lighting, new Corian countertops, and new flat-panel cabinetry with custom storage to change the aesthetics. They also envisioned replacing the existing window over the sink with a box bay window.
Sweeney Design Remodel took the challenge into hand to make the following improvements:
We removed the kitchen’s existing countertops and plumbing fixtures to make room for a new divided sink, Grohe faucet, Corian countertops, and a porcelain tile backsplash. The new flat-panel cabinetry includes plenty of storage, including a Pull-Down Shelf and Pull-Out Corner Storage. New under-cabinet lighting was installed, along with two new electrical outlets and six can lights.
After removing the existing window over the kitchen sink, we replaced it with a box bay window that lets in more natural light.
In the laundry room, we designed the space to incorporate a new stackable washer and dryer. In addition, we installed new upper cabinets that were extended to the ceiling for additional storage. To create continuity between the adjoining rooms, the same materials used in the kitchen remodel were used for the laundry room.
These clients were happy to receive the modern updates to their kitchen that they envisioned, with the additional laundry storage and functional improvements they needed. Both remodeling projects added utility to the home as well as beauty.
