Your kitchen is the hub of your home and will probably be one of the most disruptive improvement projects. You might plan to have a temporary meal prep area and possibly a sink. Eating out is a great idea option as well. If the kitchen are is the only reno, we can potentially seal off the rest of you home to prevent dust and odours migrating, depending on the scope of the project.

Solid wood, engineered, and tile flooring should be laid prior to having your kitchen installed. Floating floors such as laminate should be installed after. Since this type of floor “floats”, there will be a slight gap by the cabinetry. We can install the toe kick after flooring to cover this gap and still allow the floor to float.

Yes. We can provide you with a partial or complete on-site refinishing quote.

Wood is not a friend of water so all parts of your kitchen are coated to protect them from moisture. Due to seasonal humidity changes these coatings cannot protect the wood 100%. Any water should not be allowed to sit and needs to be wiped off, including countertops. Cleaning your cabinets should only be done with a clean cloth and warm water. If that does not do the job Magnolia will gladly advise you. Hot objects should never be placed on any part of a kitchen, including stone or quartz.

Doors, cabinets and drawers will move due to the wood expanding and contracting. Our doors and drawers have 3 dimensional adjustability and may require repositioning, especially in the first year. Small gaps between cabinetry and drywall may appear from seasonal movement.

Magnolia is a custom builder so any choice is available. Options include walnut, cherry, maple, birch, mahogany, painted or stained
