Some people say, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” Unfortunately, for many homeowners, this is exactly what they want to do. The small, confined kitchens that many island homes were built with often ruin the enjoyment of cooking.

One local family from Kailua turned to the Cabinet & Stone Factory for help.


“When we’re cooking for the family, the kitchen is about 20 degrees hotter than the rest of the house,” the Brogans told Jeff Hatterman of the Cabinet & Stone Factory, as he visited their home for their free initial measure and estimate.

Even worse, poor planning on the part of the original homebuilder placed the appliances and cabinetry in odd places, causing family members to often bump into each other while trying to move around in the kitchen at the same time, and wasting valuable useful countertop space. The Cabinet & Stone Factory took all of these problems into account while working with them during their free computer design for their kitchen renovation.

After their renovation was finished, visitors to their home were amazed at the transformation. The difference was so dramatic that many of their friends thought they had expanded the kitchen by several feet in each direction.


The Brogans’ new kitchen is an expansive space integrated into the rest of the home by removing walls and opening up the room, not only creating a beautiful continuous room, but also eliminating their overheating problem and making the kitchen more ergonomic and functional. Gorgeous granite countertops complement the stainless steel appliances, and the hood keeps the kitchen air-fresh, even while cooking.

The Cabinet & Stone Factory is Hawaii’s one-stop-shop for all of your home renovation needs. The company eliminates the headache of working with multiple contractors, designers and vendors by working with you as a single point of contact and accountability to ensure your entire renovation is handled smoothly and efficiently, delivering superior workmanship ontime and on-budget.

The Brogans love their new kitchen
