STAY & UPGRADE – Shane and Christine Haggard needed a kitchen that better served their large family. They considered building, but they lived their neighborhood and the rest of their home. The couple chose to stay and let DreamMaker upgrade their kitchen into a more functional space that's also breathtakingly beautiful.
Functionality is key in a kitchen that feeds four children; pretty is just a plus. Shane and Christine Haggard's kitchen, before their DreamMaker remodel, was neither functional nor pretty.
"Our house was built in the early "70s and the kitchen's design wasn't ideal for our family. With four kids, we have to feed a bunch of people," Christine says.
"We came to a point where we realized that we needed to build a new house or upgrade the kitchen. We like our neighborhood and the rest of the house, so we decided to stay and upgrade."
The couple already had DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen in mind, after reading about the company in an article like this one. They checked out DreamMaker's website and liked what they saw in the "Before and After" photos.
We it was time to design the kitchen, Christine already had plenty of great ideas. She worked with DeamMaker owner Steve Betts and he made sure the plan was exactly what Christine wanted.
"I would tell Steve what I had in mind and he would draw up a plan and show me, letting me say "yes" or "no" about each detail and making me feel confident about each choice."
"I was nervous about picking some things, but Steve offered great advice. He was very patient to make sure the design was exactly what we wanted."
The Haggard's kitchen remodel took just five week's although DreamMaker initially estimated six or seven. The new kitchen looks completely different, with pendant lighting, granite countertops, new cabinets, paint, fixtures, and flooring. There's also a new island that discretely houses a second stove with downdraft ventilation.
When asked to choose her favorite feature of the remodel, Christine says, "I love the granite countertops.. but, really, I love everything about our new kitchen. The floor is one of my favorites, too. We chose a really cool ceramic, woo-look tile that mimics the natural wood flooring in our living room. It's beautiful and it can be mopped so I can clean up after the kids."
The Haggards are very happy with the outcome of their DreamMaker remodel and the time frame in which it was completed.
"DreamMaker does great quality work," Christine says. "And the crew was so very courteous and excellent at communicating with us. They kept a dry erase marker board in the kitchen, where we could write notes and questions or look at a precise schedule they printed that showed exactly which step was next in remodel."
"We felt informed and included throughout the entire process. We'd recommend DreamMaker to anyone and we'd recommend DreamMaker to anyone and we'd use them again ourselves."
