Crafting Comfort and Style with Procraft Cabinetry

Selecting the Ideal Cabinets for the Seattle Kitchen Remodeling Project

When selecting the perfect cabinets for the kitchen remodel in Seattle, our goal was clear. We aimed to blend quality, style, and functionality without compromising the budget. Our clients initially considered Bellmont Cabinet Co. for their reputable offerings. Yet, despite the allure of their custom solutions, the price factor was a concern. Each additional accessory significantly increased the overall cost. Moreover, their use of particle board as a base material—requiring an upgrade to plywood for enhanced durability—proved to be less than ideal. The desire for a sturdy and stylish kitchen called for a thoughtful pivot.

High Luban Cabinets Quality Meets High Price

Luban Cabinets emerged as another contender, celebrated for their “top of the line” quality and the luxurious variety of cabinet accessories. Their showroom, an emporium of tactile experiences, offers everything one could imagine for a dream kitchen. However, even this option presented a financial stretch once all the desired accessories were tallied, echoing the clients’ need for a more cost-effective yet high-quality alternative.

The “Procraft Cabinetry Seattle” Solution

This led us to the selection of Shaker White cabinets from Procraft Cabinetry in, a choice that harmoniously balanced cost-efficiency with the high-end aspirations of our clients. Procraft’s offerings shine in their simplicity and quality—their cabinet boxes are constructed from durable plywood, with solid wood framing for the boxes and door frames, ensuring longevity and a timeless aesthetic. Procraft’s approach to cabinetry provided a blank canvas for us to enhance with bespoke details.

Elevating Elegance: Integrating Rev-A-Shelf Innovations

While Procraft’s showroom may not feature an extensive range of built-in accessories, this presented us with a unique opportunity. By sourcing the accessories separately from Rev-A-Shelf, we were able to customize the kitchen’s storage solutions to the exact needs of our clients. From cutlery drawers to custom roll-out trays and dedicated sections for knives, each accessory was meticulously chosen and integrated into the Procraft cabinets by our skilled team. This approach allowed us to achieve an elevated level of functionality, akin to a high-end kitchen makeover in Seattle, without the exorbitant costs.

In the end, the kitchen emerged not just as a cooking space but as a bespoke culinary sanctuary, tailored to the needs and desires of the homeowner, illustrating that luxury and practicality can indeed go hand in hand.

Quartz Countertops: The Pinnacle of Elegance and Balance

In the Seattle kitchen remodel, countertop selection was paramount. Our clients had a clear vision: they chose 3CM Calacatta Enigma quartz from Cosmos Surfaces. This choice promised elegance and practicality. The design featured a white base, subtly veined with grey, ensuring harmony throughout the remodel.

Durability and ease of maintenance were key for our clients. Calacatta Enigma’s charm, with its discreet black and barely visible brown veins, offers drama and continuity. Available in varied thicknesses and with a polished finish, it reflects the opulence of marble.

The design choice mirrors Seattle’s sophisticated architectural vibe. The countertop, shown here, exemplifies their decision—it enhances the space with light, contributing to an open feel. This quartz countertop blends with the kitchen’s identity, merging functionality with understated sophistication.

Sleek Backsplash Brilliance in the Seattle Kitchen Remodel

Cloe Ceramic Elegance: The Main Attraction

For our Seattle kitchen remodeling project, the backsplash selection was a spotlight moment. The owner chose the Cloe 2.5″ x 8″ Ceramic Tile in White from Bedrosians, a sleek and modern option that brings a bright, clean backdrop to the culinary space. Each tile’s glossy finish reflects light, contributing to a feeling of openness and airiness in the kitchen. This classic choice complements the quartz countertops perfectly, marrying practicality with timeless style.

Artisanal Accent: The Materici Nook

In the nook area, the selection was just as inspired. The Materici 2″ x 10″ in Stagno by Sartoria adds a contrasting texture and depth. Its unique hue and artisanal quality introduce an element of sophistication, creating a distinct yet cohesive look. These tiles are more than just a surface; they are a statement, showcasing the homeowner’s commitment to both function and fashion in their space.

Harmonizing Function and Fashion in Tile Selection

This pairing of backsplash tiles encapsulates the essence of Seattle’s design ethos: a blend of innovation and elegance. Short, deliberate sentences bring clarity to the description, just as the chosen tiles bring a clean, defined aesthetic to the Seattle kitchen remodeling. With every choice made, the remodel moves closer to its completion—a vision of balanced beauty and purposeful design.

The Foundation of Seattle Kitchen Elegance: COREtec Flooring

In the world of kitchen remodeling in Seattle, the floor is more than just the surface you walk on—it’s a foundational element of the home’s character. In this transformation, the choice of flooring was pivotal. The homeowner deliberated between the robustness of LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) and the allure of WPC (Waterproof Polymer Core) flooring. In the end, the decision fell on the luxurious embrace of COREtec Enhanced Plank in Aurora Oak. This premium flooring option merges the practical need for durability with the desire for an opulent underfoot experience.

The COREtec Enhanced Plank brings more than just a stunning aesthetic with its 7″ x 48″ dimensions and enhanced painted bevel for a realistic wood look. Its Waterproof Foamed Core is robust, designed to withstand the demands of a busy kitchen while promising a comfortable, quiet, and authentic feel. The attached cork underlayment is a testament to the thoughtfulness behind each plank, offering an extra layer of insulation for a softer step and sound dampening qualities.

Ensuring a Lasting Impression: Installation and Warranties

Not only is the Aurora Oak WPC flooring from COREtec visually appealing, but it also comes with peace of mind thanks to its comprehensive warranties. With protections against defects, wear, and water damage, and even pet-related incidents, the homeowner can rest assured that their investment is well-protected. Additionally, the flooring’s GreenGuard Certification ensures that it meets rigorous environmental standards, making it a responsible choice for the environmentally-conscious homeowner.

By opting for COREtec’s Enhanced Plank in Aurora Oak, with its waterproof, kid-proof, and pet-proof features, the homeowner has laid down a foundation that’s built to last, providing a luxurious feel with a practical edge that’s perfectly suited for the modern Seattle home.

Completing the Seattle Kitchen Masterpiece

Our journey concludes with a suite of finishing touches that elevate this Seattle kitchen to a realm of unmatched refinement. Every interior door within the home’s floor was replaced. The doors sleek white shaker style echoed the kitchen’s modern aesthetic. The millwork, crafted with precision, unifies each room, creating a seamless flow throughout the home.

In the kitchen, we introduced new Milgard windows, chosen meticulously to match the existing style, ensuring a balanced and smooth visual continuity. The new trims and baseboards were installed, followed by a fresh coat of paint to breathe new life into the space.

Innovative Convenience: The Drawer Microwave

Lighting plays a pivotal role in setting the ambiance and functionality of a kitchen. With this in mind, we installed state-of-the-art under-cabinet lighting. The lighting not only illuminates the workspaces but also highlights the kitchen’s elegant features. As for the appliances, each piece was chosen for its blend of form and function. Notably, the built-in drawer microwave stands out for its ease of use. Such microwaves are a boon, especially for retirees or those who find reaching up or bending down a challenge. The Sharp Drawer Microwave (Model#:SMD2470ASY) ergonomic design allows for simple operation and effortless access. The drawer feature makes the microwaves a preferred homeowner’s choice for many kitchen remodeling projects in Seattle, WA.

Gratitude for Partnerships: Suppliers and Their Role

The success of this remodel also owes much to our esteemed suppliers. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Contractor Furnishings Mart (CFM), our primary provider for tiles and flooring that laid the groundwork for this transformation. Special gratitude goes to Procraft and Rev-A-Shelf. Their cabinetry and storage solutions have been central to the kitchen’s functionality and aesthetic. And to Cosmos Surfaces, whose countertops added the finishing touch of elegance to the space. Their contributions have been invaluable.
