Welcome back to Behind the Walls. I’m Jason with JP Carducci, Inc. Today, we’re in Fort Walton Beach, excited to bring you to one of our awesome kitchen remodels. We’re going to go over that detail pretty quick, and we’re also doing kind of like a whole home update.
So, let’s go over to the kitchen. As you can see, she’s got all white cabinets with a little island. We’re going to rip all this out. We’re going to go back to a two-tone with some cool features that we can’t wait to show you.
Speaking of whole house updates, we’re going to scrape the ceilings, we’re going to paint all the walls, we’re going to go back with knockdown texture, we’re going to get rid of this dated popcorn, and we’re going to do some pretty cool large format tile that we can’t wait to show you.
The owner here has gave us pretty much the design rights, so we’re really excited to do this one. So, now it’s time to start moving some furniture and draping the walls. All right, so we’re wrapping up day one. It was a successful day, it was crazy day. We got a lot done. As you can see, the kitchen dining room area ceilings are scraped.
We got some flooring removed. Most of the baseboard in the house is removed, and we actually got some texturing done, so follow me over here. The utility room has been scraped and re-textured,and ready for paint, along with the bathroom and this bedroom in here, and there’s not a whole lot of light in here but maybe with new paint.
If you look, the texture’s nice and even. It’s a medium texture, not too heavy, not too light, so you get that good look. Next, we’re going to be finishing up these ceilings, painting them, painting the walls, then we’re going to start laying some tile.
All right, it looks like day four of five. I really don’t know but we had a lot of stuff that’s been done, and a lot still going on,so we’re going to kind of walk you through it and give you some details, and show you some of these finishes we’ve been putting down.
As you can see, we’ve done some wood plank tiles, 8″x48″, on a random bond line. This is actually dry tile. You can still see we’ve got some wet tile there with some T spacers, and as we go into the master closet, this has already been grouted, and we’re currently putting down the four and a half inch baseboard,and it really just. It looks awesome.
So, come on through. You can see we got the walls painted, the ceiling’s painted. We did a little accent on the fireplace, but we’ll get into that after we get all this furniture moved. We’ve gotten the upstairs prepped, ready for carpet. We did something kind of cool this time.
We tiled the risers of the stairs with the floor tile, and then we’re going to upholster wrap the treads with the carpet that’s going to match upstairs. Kind of give you a different look. I think it’s going to come out pretty nice. We got all the tile done through here.
We’re finishing up this guest bedroom. We’ve got the bathroom done one hundred percent, minus some accessories, and then again, like on our other project on the Santa Rosa Beach video, we took this out, we raised it up. As you can see down here, we’ve got some legs. We repainted the base, now it’s at comfort height, easy on the back, it’s updated, and didn’t spend a lot of money doing it.
We’re going to add some hardware to match the other finishes, and it’s going to give it a nice, clean, refreshed look. We’ve got Kevin over here. He’s doing some grouting for us. We went with a De lorean Gray grout. This is the grout we use. This is Fusion Pro. This is a single compound urethane grout. It’s stain resistant, water resistant, mold and mildew resistant. This is the grout you want in your house.
If your floor guy is not giving this, you’re wasting your money. That’s just the bottom line. It’s easy, it’s simple, it’s forever. This is the best. I’m going to take a walk in here into the kitchen. We’ve still got some tile going on in here.
We’ve got Other Kevin, he’s laying the tile in this kitchen, and that’s going to be our cabinets, so we’re going to go ahead and start ripping out these cabinets, and getting it ready for install. All right, so we’re back from our last couple days of wrapping this remodel up, and you can see we’ve got the cabinets out, and we’re putting our new cabinets in.
We have Adam here with Home Interior Solutions, and his lead carpenter Jason, doing our install. He’s checking the level right now, making sure our tile work was good. Adam is going to go over some details here and what we’ve got going on, and kind of bringing our speed on these cabinets and what he provides.
Adam: Pretty much what we’ve got here, we’ve got Bridge wood cabinetry. It’s custom cabinet out of Kansas, a shoo in for the distressed look, along with the glazing, where the glazing really hangs up in the detail of the cabinet,and the distressed look give you the antique, and then with the island we went just straight espresso to match the glazing, which you’ll see in the next episode.
It’s pretty much standard layout, a few bump outs. We’re going to put in a large valance, really set it off for us. Jason: All right, so as he mentioned, we’re doing espresso island, so it’s going to be two-toned, small little detail that’s going to give it a lot of pop.
Again, I always use Home Interior Solutions for our cabinets. They’re easy to work with, but as you can see Adam. He’s the manager of the company and he does all the design work, and he’s here on the installs, so it’s really nice dealing with one person, and you’ve got Jason, his lead guy, who’s always on site and does some magic if we have any issues.
So, let’s walk through and we’ll give you an up to date on some things we got done. We got all our carpet in. As you can see,we wrapped it and spaced it out with the tile. It came out really nice. We did a more of a tan carpet than a gray, because we really want to bring out the brown in the tile. As you go upstairs, it looks really great.
The tile is done, we’ve got it grouted. We’ve got our baseboards on, so today we’re really just focused on our punch list, our touch-ups, and stuff like that. We’re moving some furniture around and just really getting this home back to where it’s comfortable for the owner.
A couple of things we did. She had some contact debris from when they built the house and tiled, but what we ended up doing, we ended up painting this matte black to kind of blend it, so it gave it a nice update look, and I kind of went out there with the electric blue accent wall to kind of bring the grays out, and give it more of a feminine look with the gray, it kind of gives it purple shine,so it really came out nice.
The owner seemed to like it, and we’re almost done. So, the next time we see you we’re going to be getting the granite in, it’s going to be finalized,and we’ll be wrapping this project up. All right, so this is our last day. We’re doing all of our touch ups and our final punch list, and we’ve got our kitchen complete now,so let’s take a peek at this. I think you might enjoy it.
As I stated previously, we’re going to doa two-tone combination in this kitchen, and as you can see this is what we came up with. We went with a higher end granite, which had a lot more character, a lot of color, which we wanted to bring in to this kitchen. We did a very nice doge edge.
Under mount stainless sink, and then we top it off with a very subtle back splash, but enough just to kind of bring that classy look together, and then we did a little chandelier for a sink light. Thought it was a different look, and it has the colors of the granite so it really brings it together,and we did the all LED lighting throughout, which is also dimable, which is all operated on the wall.
All new appliances. Everything is stainless. It just came together so it’s really nice. That’s it. This is our final day. We’re really excited how this project turned out from the kitchen, to the master bedroom, to the baths where we did that inexpensive update, which you can do yourself by raising the vanities,to the large format tile, to the ceilings, to the paint.
Everything just came together. It just flows, and it looks nice, and we’re real excited. We’re looking forward to reading your comments,and I’ve got to go start another project….
