DIY Inspiration: A Kitchen Overhaul

Erica Suffoletto is a single mom raising a son, so she’s always looking for ways to complete projects herself, while being able to keep expenses low.

She’s obsessed with watching do-it-yourself HGTV television shows, and her absolute favorite is Rehab Addict—a show that advocates restoration of existing homes instead of demolishing old homes or buying new.

It’s safe to say that the show and her love for all things DIY inspired her recent kitchen overhaul. She’s even hoping to be spotlighted on HGTV for her own remodel! (Good luck, Erica! We’ll be sure to tune in!)

The RTA Cabinet Store team always likes to see how our different customers make our cabinets their own. That’s why we love sharing these stories of how our customers are easily and effortlessly able to turn their dream into a reality.

More details on Erica’s story below:

Overall Budget

Her overall budget on the kitchen renovation came to about $4,500. She completed about 70% of the work herself. Her father-in-law finished the rest.

Erica shared her kitchen remodel with us saying she’s been able to inspire her friends and family. She hopes to be able to communicate how she was able to totally revamp her kitchen at a low cost and without hiring a contractor.

From looking at the pictures, many would have guessed it was a professionally done project—it’s a truly gorgeous kitchen. With the RTA Cabinets, you’re able to install easily on your own with professional results. Her vision to transform her outdated kitchen into a gorgeous, contemporary, and functional kitchen has become a reality.

Style of Cabinets

Erica chose the Grey Shaker style cabinet line. This line of cabinets is perfect if you’d like a contemporary look. The grey finish softens the room, while still giving the kitchen a modern twist.

The Grey Shaker cabinets feature a solid birch frame with a MDF center panel, dovetail drawers with under mount full extension soft close drawer glides, and Concealed European-style hinges.

Unique Features or Touches Added

Erica completed her kitchen renovation by adding a few aspects that give the space a finished touch. In addition to the cabinets, she added a slide-out garbage can located under the sink, soft closes on all doors and drawers, a brand new 36-inch stainless steel refrigerator, beautiful custom roman shades, a gorgeous marble countertop, and a stunning stone backsplash that ties the room together. After the remodel, Erica is now enjoying the functionality, as well as having a great space to show off to family and friends!
