Interior designer, Teresa Sicks, owner of Aberdeen Interiors was given the challenge of updating an 18-year-old home located in the Riss Lake Subdivision, Kansas City, Missouri. Sicks, a Kansas City native with 5+ years of experience in interior design, stepped into this remodel project with an eye on bringing this home back to beautiful.

In planning and making recommendations for this kitchen remodel Sicks says, “The smartest choice in a kitchen remodel is simple, clean lines with interesting colors and textures. Let your cabinets steal the show. Even though cabinetry and custom millwork are one of the largest investments in a kitchen renovation project, paint upgrades don’t have to be. Think about going up and adding to existing kitchen cabinets. It’s a fresh, contemporary look  on modern kitchen design that gives so much personality to the space, especially when it can be seen through other rooms within the house,” she says. “No one ever complains that their kitchen is too white and clean! ”

Semi-custom cabinetry was made to complement the Mont Blanc marble used for the countertops. The large island was custom made.  Cool gray cabinetry is topped with a Nero Orion Brushed granite to give the kitchen contrast and better utilize the space. Dark hardwood floors deliver visual beauty to the overall kitchen and continue into the other rooms for continuity.

Details such as a pencil trim used in the marble tile backsplash add unique texture to walls and highlight the custom marble countertops used on the perimeter of the kitchen.

Take a peek inside this Leawood Remodel by Reliance Construction

Reliance Construction Main

When Leawood homeowners made the decision to remodel their recently purchased home, they chose to work with Jason Cornish and Chelsea Witmer with Reliance Construction Group. This hard-working team of professionals has over 20 years of experience remodeling bathrooms, basements, kitchens, and building room additions.

CSW.Reliance Construction 1
“The home owners requested our help in updating the kitchen, living area, laundry room, powder room, and masterbath,” stated Chelsea Witmer, Operations Manager for Reliance. “The owners had purchased the home with clear ideas on the areas they wanted to update. While this helps to make our job a little easier, matching existing cabinets can sometimes be a challenge,” says Witmer of the renovation project.
CSW.Reliance Construction 2
The kitchen island and perimeter features Calacatta Vicenza Quartz giving the realistic look of fine marble in easy care and maintenance free quartz. This elegant white quartz with its subtle gray veins is ideal for a variety of designs from traditional to modern.

This 16-year-old kitchen was ready for an update. The original cabinets were reconfigured with an island and upright cabinet built to match existing cabinetry.

CSW.Reliance Construction 4
The finished kitchen is light and bright. The addition of the island and custom cabinet add additional storage space while the island also provides additional seating for guests.
CSW.Reliance Construction Laundry
In the laundry area, an existing cabinet gets an update with a Giallo Verona granite top. The color mix of cool whites are softly blended with pewter and accented with sienna and umber in Giallo Verona granite, and is generally imported from Brazil.
CSW.Reliance Construction Powderroom
The powder room gets an update with Magnificent Silver granite which has what looks like patches of tans and browns that allow it to stay neutral to most any kitchen or bath design. What makes it pop is the patches of silver that shine out and give it the accent. With a custom sink this powder room reflects the personality of the owners.
CSW.Reliance Construction MasterBath

Blue Nile granite, shown here in the updated master bathroom, is a newer stone to market and is rich with visual interest. Already popular in design, this stone incorporates shades of white to black but overall has a light appearance. This stone also contains a high quantity of taupe colored quartz deposits making it very attractive to those looking for “greige” materials.

The team at Canaan Stone Works is proud to work with the professionals at Reliance Construction Group. This project was well orchestrated, timely, and delivered an updated home that the owners love.

Portfolio Kitchen & Home selects CSW for Stunning Kitchen Renovation

CSW.Portfolio 3Portfolio Kitchen & Home was selected by homeowners, Jim & Chris, to provide expertise in designing a kitchen addition to their home in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.

This remodeled kitchen is planned with a 103″ x 48″ island that is backlit using Light Tape®. Light Tape® EL Lamps are a completely dimmable uniform flat light with no hot or cold spots. This material seamlessly covers any surface without the need for diffusion.  Thinner than a credit card, this flat light source is custom made to any shape. The entire surface of this large kitchen island is a light source.

Lucent Quartzite, used in this kitchen addition, is a metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. It’s extracted from a quarry and formed into finished slabs that become  countertops, as well as tiles for floors, walls, and backsplashes. “This is a beautiful quartzite,” states Lee. “Countertops and island this size will normally take about 3-4 hours to cut. This stone is so dense it took over 8 hours to cut.”

Graham, Account Manager with Canaan Stone Works, called me to give me several installation options because of a potential issue. Our homeowner was impressed with the attention to detail and communication as we discussed potential solutions. Upon install the team from CSW was very professional and able to install the vanity top and undermount sinks the way we wanted.”

Beautiful & Bold | Lucent Quartzite

Lucent Island.To Install

The team at Canaan Stone Works are all on the job site today. Today is the day that this beautiful and bold Lucent Quartzite island top will be installed.

Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. Through a process of high heating and pressurization sandstone is transformed into Quartzite, an extremely strong and durable natural stone. When heated, individual quartz pieces recrystallize giving it a beautiful and decorative sparkling pattern.

Stay tuned for the final photos of this back-lit island. Feature photos to come!

A Fresh Look in the Lake Condo

An Island is always in style. When deciding to update the countertops in this condo several factors went into the design.
1. Fabricate a countertop that ads style and dimension to the space
2. Use Q  Premium Quartz in Gray Lagoon, Concrete Finish
3. Create an arc on the main seating area – creating space and interest
4. Round the end of the top for easy access
5. Use the professionals at Canaan Stone Works

The team begins by removing the existing countertops and sink.

Q Premium Natural Quartz embodies modern elegance with the perfect mix of natural and manufactured materials for superior style and performance. With over 60 scratch, heat, and stain resistant styles, you can count on Q to retain its good looks even in the busiest of settings.
