1940s Cape Kitchen and Bathroom Remodel Wallingford CT

1940s Cape Kitchen and Bathroom Remodel Wallingford CT

We received a call from Wallingford, CT homeowners interested in a kitchen remodeling project.

Bencar Building Systems representatives visited them at their home to discuss their project. They needed more space in the kitchen but there was an awkwardly located half bathroom that could prohibit what they wanted to do. There were also three doorways in a very tight area which needed to be worked around! After discussing the typical costs for kitchen remodeling projects, we scheduled another meeting with our kitchen designer from Bender Showrooms in New Haven.

The homeowners were receptive to turning the room used as an office into a smaller office to relocate the bathroom. This enabled the designer to move the stove to the back wall. The cased opening and wall between the kitchen and living room would also be removed for counter space and cabinets below with seating on the back side. The window on the driveway side was raised to accommodate additional counter and cabinets along with space for coats and shoes.

The cabinets, countertop, and fixtures were selected at Bender Showroom, and along with pricing from our trade partners, we were able to give them a hard price for their project, which now included bathroom remodeling, recessed lights, and scraping and painting the ceiling in the living room.

When they signed the contract, we began ordering the materials and determining a start date for the project. Our crew showed up on the first day and stayed through to completion, coordinating the work with our trades and vendors.

It was an interesting project to give them more kitchen space and still have a bathroom and office space.

They love what was done and we do too!

Client Review: We chose Bencar Building Systems for our first-floor renovation and couldn't be happier! After looking into many contractors, we chose Bencar based on our initial meeting with Mark and Nancy. From the beginning, it felt like a partnership with Bencar. They listened to our needs and provided us with feedback and ideas. Together, with the design team of Daryl and Dani at Bender, we designed a floor plan and a beautiful kitchen and bath that fit the space and met all our needs. The communication with everyone at Bencar was impressive! Anytime we had a question, we could reach out and get an answer. Lisa and Cody were responsive, collaborative, and always available. Furthermore, we received a day-to-day calendar of the work that would be done and who would be doing it, and Bencar stuck to it! Each day, we were amazed at the quality of their work and how seamlessly the plans were executed. Bencar takes pride in their work and their attention to detail is impeccable. We are still amazed at how they beautifully transformed our space! We highly recommend Bencar Building Systems for a remodeling project and look forward to working with them again in the future!
