Komfort Trailblazer Kitchen Renovation
The kitchen in this Trailblazer renovation may go down in history as my most favorite renovation EVER. My client and I picked out this blue tile months ago, and it inspired the entire rest of the this trailer. I could NOT wait to put it on, and it did NOT disappoint!
Nearly everything came out of this kitchen. The sink, faucet, countertop, stove, microwave, carpet paneling on the cabinets, hardware, all that I kept was the cabinets!
Then I sanded the cabinets, inside as well, with 80 grit sand paper and then cleaned EVERYTHING (walls, ceiling, cabinets) with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water.
Then I primed the entire room (ceiling included) with STIX primer and painted the entire room with Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace in Scuff X Satin finish. This is the perfect and most durable paint and works great for cabinets.
Next up was flooring. I have been using Shaw Matrix line in the last few renovations and I love this flooring so much. It's only 3.2mm thick (meaning it works great with slides and is lighter in weight than a thicker flooring) and is very easy to install. This flooring is in their style Toffee Elm.
My clients never really used the oven, so they asked me to take the range out completely and replace it with a two burner cooktop. This was going to give them more counter-space, but also give them storage in the cabinet I created where the oven used to be. I actually saved that door from the dining room upper cabinet and worked it to fit here!
I gave them a new stainless steel microwave to match their new cooktop, new countertops, new champagne brass hardware, a new stainless sink and matching champagne brass faucet, and new puck lights under the cabinets and in the ceiling.
Then it was time for the show stopper, the blue tile! I used Musselbound instead of mortar. It's the perfect solution for RVs because it is much lighter than mortar. Its a double sided adhesive pad that you stick on the walls, and then stick the tile to it. I added all the tiles, using my angle grinder to cut them. You can absolutely use a wet tile saw, but then you have to let the tiles dry for 24 hours because wet tiles can not be used on the Musselbound adhesive pad. Since I used the angle grinder, all my tiles were dry, meaning I got the tile job completely done it one day!
Then I used a flexible grout, added a new roller shade, and the kitchen was complete!
