Retro Refashioned

Creating a funky aesthetic as well as reconfiguring the space, dramatically transformed a nondescript, blank slate into a roomy kitchen with bar area that is the perfect amalgamation of cooking and entertaining space. Not only was the homeowners’ dream kitchen built, but Rocket Renovations also were able to help them create their perfect kitchen within their budgetary constraints. A cost effective project was achieved by working with the homeowners’ ideas to visualize the results and by incorporating some of the less expensive chain store components that they sourced.
