Drenckhahn-Oak3

Erick Drenckhahn owns a property remodeling company. If anyone knows the ins and outs of transforming an outdated space it into something absolutely stunning as much as the RTA Cabinet Store team, it’s definitely Erick.

More notably, he’s a pro at knowing how to remodel with a limited budget and short timeframe.

That’s why we wanted to share his some of his tips—whether you flip homes, work as a property investor, or you’re simply doing your own remodel, these innovative ideas are easy to incorporate into your home renovation project.

Overall Budget:

Erick spent $1,500 on his entire cabinet costs. His total budget for the entire apartment remodel was about $5,000—a truly phenomenal deal. Simply updating the cabinetry played a large factor in transforming the overall aesthetics of the space.

Style of Cabinets:

Erick opted for the classic Oak Cabinet Line. With face frames, stiles, and rails made from solid oak, this collection brings a traditional look to our product line. The raised panels are oak veneered for a more stable door that is less likely to warp or crack. This collection also uses Antique English semi-concealed hinges to highlight its oak finish.

Unique Features or Touches Added:

If your separated kitchen makes it difficult to entertain guests, a helpful renovation tip is to have a large window connecting the kitchen and living area. It still separates the two, but allows for easy communication—especially when entertaining guests!

Turning a Kitchen Vision into a Reality

Mahon-Beaumont3

We absolutely love sharing amazing remodels like this one from our client Kevin Mahon, who wanted to update his kitchen to create a more inviting, warm, and open space.

Here is how Kevin went from cramped kitchen to the ideal entertainment space:

His main challenge was to take a lifeless, dull kitchen area and transform it into a welcoming and functional space to cook and entertain. Without the beautiful granite countertops, ambient hanging lamps, or Beaumont Collection Cabinetry, it was nearly impossible to cook freely in the kitchen, much less enjoy the company of family and friends.

With a supporting wall blocking free access, the kitchen was more like a closet. Kevin had to tiptoe around to grab a wok or even a ladle. He needed a wider and more luxurious space. He turned to the RTA Cabinet Store for help.

Kitchen construction is a quite an undertaking for many homeowners, but not when you use materials provided by the RTA Cabinet Store. Kevin was able to complete the entire remodel by himself—only hiring a contractor to put in an LVL Beam when he needed to knock down the supporting wall and to install the Bianco Antico granite.

Kevin’s remodel results were absolutely spectacular and surpassed his goals of creating the kitchen he had always hoped for, and we wanted to share his story in hopes it as an inspiration for others. See the results below!

Mahon-Beaumont

Overall Budget:

This entire project came to $13,000—an incredible deal for a complete kitchen transformation.

Mahon-Beaumont3

Style of Cabinets:

Kevin opted for the Beaumont cabinet line. The Beaumont Collection provides a rich, warm, chocolate stain color that matches any decor. It offers dovetailed under-mount full-extension soft-closing drawer glides and 6-way adjustable European style hinges as standard features.

Mahon-Beaumont5

Unique features or touches added:

Kevin added a spice rack, a shelf end unit, and the beautiful Bianco Antico granite to complete his vision. The RTA Cabinet Store team agrees that these additions give his new kitchen the perfect finishing touch!

A Bedroom Remodel: Fulfilling His Son’s Dream

Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 9.30.36 AM

In this post we’re spotlighting our customer, Michael White, who recently remodeled his 10-year-old son’s room as a Birthday gift (can you say “Dad of the year”?). Using the Java Shaker cabinet line, Michael built an entertainment area, study center, and updated closet space with more functionality.

Here’s what Michael had to say about his experience with RTA Cabinet Store.

 “I was pleased with how my son’s room remodel went and the way I used your cabinets to achieve my visions. Your cabinets were amazingly easy to work with and exactly what I wanted.”

Check out the amazing bedroom transformation for this lucky 10-year-old!

Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 9.30.36 AM

Overall budget:

Michael spent about $4,000.00 on cabinets. Not only was this project affordable, but he also shared that the other entertainment centers of the same size and quality cost twice as much.

Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 9.31.49 AM

Style of Cabinets:

Michael decided to go with the Java Shaker cabinet line for his son’s room makeover.

The Java Shaker line of cabinetry offers a dark, almost black finish along with a smooth shaker style door that provides a contemporary look and feel. With features such as dovetailed drawers and soft close drawers, the Java Shaker is one of RTA Cabinet Store’s best values.

Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 9.34.09 AM

Unique features or touches added:

Due to the affordability of the cabinets, Michael was able to add extra touches that really made this room every kid’s dream. In fact, he took the remodel to a whole new level and strategically added LED lights around the room, motion activated lights in the new closet, and black lights to fulfill his son’s room vision. His son now has a killer study and hangout space complete with ample drawers and cabinets.

Kitchen Remodel: The Ultimate Makeover

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 4.02.48 PM

We’re excited to share Jim O’loughlin’s truly spectacular kitchen makeover. Jim transformed his previously outdated, lackluster kitchen into a swanky and inviting space—ideal for entertaining guests in his Isle of Palms home.

Jim was able to complete the entire project easily by himself, and as you can tell by the before and after photos below, he’s very proud of the results. The RTA Cabinet Store team is just as impressed, and wanted to share Jim’s kitchen transformation to inspire your own remodel ideas.

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 4.02.29 PM

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 4.02.48 PM

Overall budget:

Including the flooring, which runs into the dining room and living room, the overall budget came to about $15,000. The budget for the kitchen was about $12,000—extremely affordable considering he completely renovated his entire kitchen from floor to ceiling.

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 4.04.47 PM

Style of Cabinets:

Jim chose to use a hybrid of cabinet lines, which we think looks absolutely superb. He used the Traditional White Shaker cabinets for the majority of the kitchen and used the Espresso Shaker cabinets for the beautiful center island.

Constructed of maple and birch wood, the Traditional White Shaker cabinets boast full overlay, solid hardwood doors with concealed 6-way adjustable hinges. Solid wood drawer boxes feature epoxy drawer glides.

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 4.05.58 PM

Unique features or touches added:

Jim finished the project with stunning additions to give the kitchen a seamless look. He added back buffet complete with wine fridge to offset the loss of space from the original pantry, Carrara marble for the island, Astoria granite for the counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and gorgeous Rustic Beachwood Fossilized Bamboo flooring.

A Kitchen Transformation: Marina’s Story

Peele-Cognac6

In this post, we feature Marina Peele’s gorgeous new kitchen makeover. With our help, she was able to transform the busiest room in her home—without the headache and stress.

Marina’s goal was to complete a major kitchen remodel—specifically, to take her dull, outdated kitchen and turn it into the kitchen she always wanted. She contacted RTA Cabinet Store for assistance in transforming her old-fashioned kitchen to a more sleek and modern style.

Marina planned the overall kitchen design, built the cabinets, painted, and installed the backsplash. Then she hired an awesome contractor to complete the major construction, such as the cabinet install, plumbing, and electrical work.

It was a quick, painless project that didn’t cost a fortune—and she’s so happy with the results!

While we regularly share tips on how to customize kitchens to fit your unique lifestyle needs, we’ve decided there’s no better source of inspiration and fresh ideas than from our own clients’ renovations

Overall budget:

Marina spent only $15,000 to completely revamp her kitchen. It was an easy project, which totally transformed her home—and didn’t break the bank!

Style of Cabinets:

Marina chose the Cognac Shaker cabinet line. Cognac Shaker cabinets are a perfect choice for a simple, functional, and elegant kitchen. The line is finished in a mocha stain and treated with a baked-on glaze finish for unsurpassed durability. This cabinet style is solidly constructed from birch wood and has a full overlay solid hardwood door with 3-inch stiles and rails.

Unique features or touches added:

To take the kitchen to the next level and add her own unique touch, Marina added a custom, built-in wine rack, a DIY Edison Chandelier, and a matching center cart/island to hide trash and recycling. Adding a center island also provided extra appliance storage, which is a must for the modern kitchen.
