kitchen upgrade



Major changes to your space, without breaking the bank. This is the most popular type of transformation we do as structures, fixtures, and appliances have aged past rehabilitation, however the layout of the space still works for the customer.

Changes may include: replacing cabinets, vanities, and appliances; new counter tops; new tile on floors, walls, and back splashes; converting tubs to showers; minor changes to electrical and plumbing to support your new look.


1950's kitchen with knotty pine cabinets that the clients loved! What they didn't love was the dated countertop, sink, faucet, and linoleum floor.

Changes: Added a metal backsplash; wide format tile floor; deep farmhouse sink; countertop; lighting; rerouted disposal switch.

Hazel Tree

Late 1990's West End home.

Master bath was suffering from the 90's. 12 x 12 white tile floors, single vanity with two basins, massive sheet mirror, uninspired lightning, etc.

The clients did the demo themselves (in about 4 hours) and saved $500. Ugly Duckling came in and did everything else. Drywall repair, installed new vanities and faucets, new lighting, and tiled the floor. Then the customers finished up with a fresh paint job.

Two back-to-back bathrooms that the client wanted to be upgraded from one bowl to two. With the plumbing sharing one wall, this was quite the challenge!

Changes: new mirrors; vanities; counter tops; faucets; flooring; lighting; and paint.

A little out of the ordinary.

Laundry room in a townhouse that had been a rental property for more than a decade. Leaks, neglect, and bad DIY resulted in a horror show of a space.

Changes: replumb washer and hot water heater; install venting for dryer; bring electrical up to code; framing; and drywall repairs.
