Mid-March 2023 - Kitchen updates

Follow along on this Cary home remodel

See how we progress on this first floor remodel in the Regency Park Estates neighborhood of Cary, N.C. We’ve mentioned in the past how the interior design and home renovation process is a journey with many twists and turns.

It seems the moment one industry “catches up” on their supply crunch, a different industry struggles to meet demand. If it’s not lumber, it’s furniture. When furniture catches up, it’s decorative metal hardware. There will be challenges, but it can still be fun with the right design partner.

We thought you’d enjoy an ongoing blog from one project, so you can see the timeline of activity. We started in January 2023 (photos at the bottom) and will periodically update you with the latest project photos. Let’s get started!


Progress continues! Doors and hardware are being added to the cabinetry. Painting throughout the residence is nearing completion. Kitchen tiling is in-progress as is a custom-designed built-in bookcase adjacent to the fireplace. Soon the focus will turn to flooring and detailing throughout.


As you can see, progress continues as the team has been busy painting throughout the residence. All cosmetic renovations from last month — from relocating lighting to drywall repair and more — are now behind us. As a result, the paint detailing for each room is nearing completion.

March 2023 – Kitchen painting complete

It’s interesting to note that we’re reusing former kitchen cabinetry in the laundry room overhaul. We’re excited to see the “heavy lifting” complete for each of the rooms in this residence. March will be an active month!


Kitchen cabinets have been installed! As you can see, the team is busy locating new ceiling lights throughout the space. These changes are underway, along with electric outlets, patching floor repairs, drywall repair and touch-ups, plus many more of the behind the scenes details. The space is really starting to come together.

Phase two – Floors & walls

Demo began in early January and now the half wall in the kitchen is built, drywall is up, flooring weaved in, and the first stage of prepping and painting walls is complete. Cabinet install coming soon.

Demo begins in january 2023
